The Boyfriend or Best Friend and I had our first real ring talk today – discussing stones etc. I’m excited as i sent him a couple of links via email (we’re in an LDR) and he said he bookmarked them! He sent me info a couple of days ago about diamonds and their value etc after we’d been talking about how one of my friends has a $7000 e-ring (which i said i’d be terrified of wearing due to the cost), and we silently agreed that diamonds may not be the way for us.
So today, i sent him a link on Moissanites and he was interested. He said he’d “love to see one in person: i wonder how the flash looks” and he started talking about how cool our generation is, “non-diamond e-rings are very in now; colored stones, vintage pieces..”. Its his first use of the “e-ring” term and i’m feeling like he’s starting to think seriously now!
So, what i’m hoping is that i could see some vintage-set moissy rings. i found one i love on moissaniteco.com and am definately leaning toward moissy over other gems. I love that its not really naturally ocurring on earth (very rare), has amazing “fire” compared to diamonds, that it is 9 1/4 on Moh’s scale of hardness, and its difficult to go past the price.
So, in an attempt to scale down my ridiculously excited-ness and not bombard my Boyfriend or Best Friend with pictures and ideas, i turn to you bees. Show me your Moissy beauties!!!
