Hi to all,
I know that the other forum is a better place for some of these moissy questions but I like talking to you girls more. I hope this is ok.
I am thinking of getting at a cushion cut, 1.8 carats in J color set in a cathedral in palladium.
My boyfriend definitely makes the money and I live in a BLINGTASTIC city of Atlanta, so no worries there either. I priced out the ring if it were in J, SI1 and it would be about $8,000 ish which is also very believable.
My boyfriend took an assignment to work in Australia (my home country, strange I know) and so we are prefering to spend our money on traveling and SEEING each other as often as possible over the ring. He is there for the next 3 years.
I wear a 5.5 in rings and long fingers. I like my hands 😀

I have no input to share about the ring because I’ve never actually seen a moissy in real life. I just wanted to say…brace yourself. These types of posts can bring the drama!

I’ve never seen that big of a moissy in person, but I would guess it would be too sparkly to pass as a diamond at that size. I have a 1 ct and don’t always tell people its moissy and it passes for diamond pretty well, but people who really know jewelry probably know its too sparkly.

omg. not this again!
Get a moissy because you want a moissy. Or get a diamond because you want a diamond. Don’t get one and pretend it’s the other. Be proud of what you have!

@Dandelion D: Agreed.
There’s nothing wrong with getting a moissy. Actually, I think it’s often the smart move as diamonds are so f’ing expensive. I don’t think you should lie about the stone though. Be proud of what you wear. It doesn’t matter how big or blingy it is. That’s not the meaning behind an engagement ring at all.

I have never seen a moissy either so not sure about it. When I first saw one online, I couldn’t tell until they mentioned that it was a moissy but again, I’ve never seen one in real life. Good luck!
@Dandelion D: Lol! So true!!

Why do you need to lie about your ring?
A moissy isn’t a diamond, it is a unique stone of its own.
From what I have seen of moissys on youtube, the double refraction is VERY noticeable and I can see a difference between a mossy and a diamond.
Most of the mossy wearers on this board are proud to wear moissys and chose them for a reason (and that reason wasn’t that it looks like a diamond for cheaper).
I think you should be proud of your ring, whatever it is, rather than lie about what it is.

I love moissanites because they’re moissanites. Unfortunately for me, the SO doesn’t love them the same way I do so my e-ring will not be moissy. If you want a diamond, get a diamond. If you want a moissy, go for moissy! And share the awesomeness that is moissanite. Tell people how they were found and now they’re created in labs. It’s always fun to educate people on sparklies.

I’m not going to get into if you should or not because that often brings a lot of drama on the boards 😉
I will say, however, yes, you probably could pass it off as a diamond. Most people won’t be able to tell the difference just from seeing it quickly on your finger. I have a Moissy and no one has ever asked me what type of stone it is either so you probably won’t have to worry about that.

You should attempt to pass off a moissanite as a diamond no sooner than you should try to pass off a blue sapphire as a blue diamond.
Also, I have fake boobs. If someone compliments my boobs, I say “thank you!” and leave it at that. If they ask me if they’re real, I say “no, they’re augmented”. Just like if someone would compliment your moissanite, you say “thank you!” but if they ask if it’s a diamond, you say “no, it’s a moissanite.”

I don’t know whether you can or can’t, but why would you want to?

@Jane8530: I probably wouldn’t be able to tell the difference between diamond and moissanite … but that’s not really saying much.

I say go for it!
Who are we to judge what you want to tell people? It makes no difference in our lives what you want to tell people so more power to you
