    weddingbaby12:  actually, you assuming that people don’t own platinum jewelry because they can’t afford it (and are obviously making up excuses, because they’re so embarrassed and insecure of their impoverished status) is the most hilarious and pathetic thing I’ve ever seen. Cut the shit, no one is impressed with you. Nooooo oneeeeeee.

    weddingbaby12:  Omfg, you are THE WORST. If she has a moissanite and loves it, what the fuck does it matter to you?! NOT EVERYONE WANTS A DIAMOND. You’re PATHETIC, and YOU obviously have some sort of insecurity and/or complex. GET OVER YOURSELF!!

    I am not the one missing any reasoning or logic here. I don’t even understand what you are responding to exactly. You just showed, via your excerpt, further support to my previous statement that platinum scratches, and it still does wear, and needs to be professionally polished to remove those scratches. Good work for confirming exactly what I said!

    I really am not sure how you have a hard time comprehending gold per ounce actually costs more than platinum per ounce. If you take a hunk of 24K gold, and a same sized hunk of platinum (be it 95% or 100%), the platinum will STILL weigh more and thus still cost more because it is priced by OUNCE. 

    By the way, generally a fine designer’s 18k gold ring is also going to cost more than a mall jeweler’s 95% platinum ring…so, your point is? Like, I am thrilled you love your platinum ring so much. Platinum IS a great metal and some people’s preference. Great, I am not sure why you feel the need to defend platinum to the death to point you attack my IQ (if my IQ IS that low, I better return my law degree, though) or other people’s rings or choices.

    Who told me that platinum bends? Um, every goldsmith/jeweler (meaning those who actually make it, not just sell it) I have ever had. Like I said, this is actually considered an ASSET for things like prongs as it means the prong won’t snap off or break causing the stone to get lost, so it is rather hilarious you are actually refuting something that is considered an advantage to platinum because you are being so defensive. This property is also why platinum displaces, rather than flakes off. It is also why I have some gold rings with platinum prongs. How about you actually look at those links I sent, and actually DO educate yourself about platinum and different alloys, instead of just saying “I don’t need to research” because I know all this stuff (and then giving me a LINK…I thought you knew alll this stuff?). Seriously, saying “I don’t research” does not do you any credit or lend any strength to any of your arguments. Research is not a bad thing. 

    Also, LOL, yes, I have a moissanite. I am not insecure about it as I adore it. Not that I understand how providing statements on metal properties leads to an attack on a stone choice but…I readily tell people in my own life it is a moissy because I think it is awesome. Let me “show” YOU something: ALL moissanites are lab created so yup, pretty damn aware it is lab-created. If you had done some research, you would have also known this. Another fact: people choose moissanites for all sorts of reasons other than imitating a diamond, and even if that is why they do get it, why does it matter to YOU? Another fact: I CHOSE my own stone and my own ring. My husband and I are delighted with it. And I am not a vengeful, spiteful, bitter bitch, so even if I did NOT like my ring, I would not “take it out on my fiance/husband”.

    OP: My apologies for hijacking your thread, and my part in the hijinks here. It looks like the Lily in Rose Gold is ahead by a large margin though, and I hope your trip to the jeweler today went well! It can be harder to find rose gold in stores, but you might be able to find a goldsmith/independent jeweler who at least has some samples from suppliers or something.

    ohhsnap:  ohhsnap, I see you have a platinum ring with a 1.57 carat diamond. I mean, obviously you are only commenting on this thread as you are insecure that it is not 1.60 carats. (major sarcasm, obviously!)

    But seriously, I just went over to your engagement announcement thread – congratulations on your engagement and your ring is beautiful!
