So I was on here back in June or sometime, doing a spot of research about moissanite as I didn’t want a diamond but I still wanted a colourless stone.
After a LOT of research and thought, we ordered my engagement ring from Moissanite Co (who were great, by the way, I emailed them lots for clarification and lots of qustions, I think it was someone called Chris who replied to all of my emails – really great service).
I thought I’d post a (rather belated as it was August) thread to show it off, just in case anyone’s interested! Also, to brag about my proposal!
Bit of background – He knows I loved being at university, I didn’t really love my course so much, but I loved being a student and dearly missed it when I graduated – it felt like I didn’t quit know who I was as I’d never not been a student! With this in mind he took me back to the university we both attended and hired one of the lecture theatres where he played the DVD of the movie we’d watched together on our first date. There was just the two of us and I had an inkling he was gonna do this – I knew my ring had arrived and I was desperate to see it but he wouldn’t let me! He waited until we were around 10 minutes in and then got down on one knee. I don’t even remember what he said as I was just thinking “This is really happening!”
We finished the movie and I was dying to get into the light to have a proper look, although I took a few photos on my phone with the flash, just to see it! And then he took me to a restaurant we’d been talking about trying for years when we were at uni.
It was perfect 🙂
I know a lot of other Bees are curious about moissy, and I’m a total loser, so I uploaded all my photos to a Pinterest board. I tried to get photos of all the colours it throws off when it’s in the right light and position but it’s pretty hard as you can’t really see it so much in real life, just on the camera. I also tried to get some of the moodier shots where it looked dark and sultry.
I’ve had it on my hand since August and I still love it and look at it all the time, in fact, some of the newer photos are only from a couple of days ago!
