    I probably wouldn’t say anything. How do you know if the woman just isn’t comfortable sharing that her diamond isn’t real. That would be awkward.

    Ummm… no? To me that would be one of the most rude things you could possibly do to someone who is excited about their engagement. Most women who wear sims (also INCREDIBLY rude to call anyone’s ring “fake”, lots of women here proudly wear CZ, moissanite, asha and their ring is no less real than anyone else’s) already know it’s a sim. They maybe didn’t want to risk a conflict diamond, or didn’t want to spend thousands on something they could get the exact same look for less. Just because it’s not a diamond doesn’t mean it’s fake.

    I wouldn’t say anything. Someone else’s financial situation is none of my business so I would never assume that someone is trying to pass a different stone off as a diamond. Some people don’t even want diamonds. 🙂

    I have a moissy, and I’m not going to shout it out to people I know will be judgemental. So if I was in work and someone complimented me on my ring, I wouldn’t say “It’s not a diamond!!”, I would just say “Thanks!”. Maybe that’s what’s happening. Whether someone knows it is white topaz/white sapphire/moissanite/petalite/CZ or whether they truly think it is a diamond, it’s not up to you to say. I’d be really embarrassed if someone felt the need to point it out in front of everyone as if I’m trying to lie, it’s not fault if people automatically assume diamond.

    hells to the no- I’m sure they know it’s not a natural diamond and if they didn’t for whatever reason who are you to burst their bubble?

    Absolutely not!  Stranger or family member, friend or foe!  It isn’t your concern.  That would be so incredibly rude!

    Nope. No way.

    I blurted out that a friend’s Hermes bag was fake (I had just watched the girls on Fashion Hunters authenticate the same kind of bag the night before) and I felt like a total jerk. She knew it was a good knockoff (some better knock off groups hire former employees from the brands they’re copying so the get the details right).

    The owner either knows she gas a differentstone and will be embarrassed to be called out OR she doesn’t know and she’s deliriously happy. Don’t knock her down.

    It’s no skin off your nose if she has a fake stone. Let it go.

    Of course not! Diamonds aren’t the only ‘real’ colourless gem and I would never assume that the only reason a woman has a sim or another colourless gem was because her fiance was trying to trick her.

    If I was in that situation I would assume she knows and wouldn’t say anything besides “wow your ring is stunning” or something like that. If she doesn’t know it’s not a diamond who cares, because at the end of the day it’s none of my business what kind of ring is on her finger (:

    No and never. First unless you are a diamond expert what makes you know for sure? Second, quite frankly it’s rude and really none of your business. Last, can we please stop with referring to non diamond rings as fake?

    I think it depends what they are saying.  Are they coming up to me and saying “LOOK AT MY DIAMOND!” when it is an obvious cz?  I probably would not say anything, but maybe – if they were getting me that involved (I have worked as a jeweler and Darling Husband is a certified jeweler) I might say, “That’s a diamond? (as I looked at it) Huh.”  Most likely though, I would not say anything but, “Oh wow!”

     Honestly, I’m a terrible bride, and I can’t even tell half the time if a stone is a diamond or not. If it’s sparkly, I’d assume it was…
