Because the diamond industry has made it so that we feel diamonds are the gold standard. It’s marketing!

Not all ladies with non-diamond rings feel this way though. I think most of the bees with diamond alternatives and gemstones genuinely love the look of their rings. I think they are gorgeous too!

“It’s just a shame some feel they need to tell others their (sscott06 spelling, not mine) real.” What the actual heck OP? What makes you think that a moissanite/ cz/ lab sapphire/ whatever clear stone we are singling out is any less real than your diamond?

You might want to choose your words a little more carefully as what you have said could offend 50% of the hive.

So from your previous threads you ask why people do spend/ do not spend so much? The other you appreciate all kinds of ring?…..

Oh Lordy Lady, sit down and hang a bit. You might learn we all have different priorites in rings. Diamond is not the only beautiful stone and the mossy ladies are very proud of their stones, they do not “try to pass them off”.

And yes, I do have a diamond.

And anyway, is it anyone’s business if ladies with clear, non-diamond rings want to pass them off as diamonds?

Any physical circle of whatever material, that adorns the third finger of the left hand and has been given or is worn with the intention of symbolising that the wearer is about to be married  – is an engagement ring.

And thus if the physical object exists then it is indeed a REAL engagement ring!!

So why do you think think people with non-diamond rings try to pass them off as diamonds?  Just curious.

Not everyone who would like a diamond can afford one.
