It’s a beautiful ring. Yes, diamond is not a moissy, but As far as it looking “fake”, I never know diamond versus others. As long as you don’t tell people it’s a diamond, I don’t see the problem.

LuluBee1 :  your ring is gorgeous! The most important thing is that YOU love it! Moissy rings are special in their own right, why not own that it’s a fab gemstone if anyone asks? 🙂

LuluBee1 :  your ring is gorgeous!  Don’t let anyone get you down because it’s not a diamond.  Who really cares?  You’re rocking a gorgeous ring and it’s because you have a really special promise from your guy.  I agree with pp- moissy is special in it’s own right. 

 

I can never tell when looking at a ring if it’s a diamond, and I’m sure a great majority of the population will be the same.

I couldn’t tell the difference between moissy, cz or diamonds. Your ring is gorgeous and you have such lovely slim fingers to show it off. Wish my sausages looked so good!

I think you are too concerned about what others might think. No one is going to be able to tell if that’s a diamond or moissy from just glancing at it…they might be able to tell if they are educated on moissy and take a real good look but most people are not as educated as a lot of us on the bee. You have a beautiful ring and moissy is a beautiful stone…I have one myself. Don’t give it another thought and rock that beautiful ring!

Most people in the non wedding bee real world will not know-but if asked I would be honest. Moissanite is a special stone in its own right. I think it’s beautiful! Personally I had never even heard of moissanite until I joined the wedding bee. I’m not sure if it’s because I live in Los Angeles where diamonds are typically the norm or maybe more people have moissys than I realize hahahaha

I’d just assume its a diamond. That’s the point of sims I think. Unless someone is really into stones I don’t suppose anyone would think anything other than diamond. 

The issue is how that makes you feel. Are you proud and happy with your lovely ring or does it make you feel a bit fake? If the latter then you aren’t going to get much joy in wearing it. If the former then who cares what others think. As I say they’ll assume diamond anyway. Just enjoy it if that’s the case.

I’d question you on that. If you think ‘I wonder if people think I’m faking something’ – I’d say you can’t be thinking that AND be happy. 

If you’re thinking “oh my god it’s so pretty – I don’t care what it looks like to anyone else I adore it!”, that’s a different thing. But I’m not hearing that. 

I WANT you to love it – but I’m pushing you on your honest feelings as you’re discussing a conflict you’re having over it. 

Again, to answer your question if people will think it’s a diamond or not, I still say most people will assume a diamond. Don’t worry about that. The issue seems to be how YOU feel about the fact that people will assume it’s a diamond and you know it’s not.

LuluBee1 :  That’s actually why I didn’t get a moissanite. They are beautiful and totally legitimate as their own thing, but I would always be hoping people thought it was a diamond. Despite being completely real moissanite, it would feel like a “fake diamond” to me. I am trying to change that mindset, because it’s ridiculous, I’m just not there yet.

Umm, it’s gorgeous!!!! And you have beautiful fingers and nails. That’s seriously all I would notice and I think I’m pretty good at spotting a moissy.

I think you ring is really lovely and suits your hand perfectly. It is a good size stone for your finger width and length not over the top at all. Wear it with pride and enjoy the sparkle!

I have a Moissanite and holy crap, I love it. I love it because it’s a Moissanite. I love all the crazy colors. I love the story. I love the ethics. I love the price. I don’t worry about people not thinking it’s a diamond because, well, it’s NOT. If you want a diamond, save up and get a diamond. I know Moissanite isn’t for everyone because of the whole “mind clean” thing. If you can’t embrace that you have this awesome stone that is awesome in it’s own right and you’ll always be insecure about it, then you’re doing yourself a disservice because you deserve to love and be happy with what you wear on your finger. And as far as what anyone else thinks, who gives a crap? They are totally entitled to their own opinions and that is great, but you never have to let those opinions have any kind of direct bearing on your life or your choices, you know?
