1 carat is small to some, and large to others. It depends on your finger size, if it has a halo, etc.

Flaunt it.  Who cares what they think.  Upgrade later.  If you dont have the money, you dont have it.  You could also do a gem stone.

People that judge you over a ring are just being snotty, so who cares what they think.

I love my diamond but at the end of the day, it’s what it represents that matters and he could have proposed with a vending machine ring and I would still wear it proudly and flaunt it…  you could always do bands now and get your rock later, when it makes sense financially for you as a couple… i’ve seen people with just bands and i kind of like the simplicity of it… whatever you get, own it and flaunt it…

if you want it, can afford it, and will be happy with it, i say get it. I don’t see the need for any other factor (i.e., what other people will think) to play into this decision.

Go with the moissy and if people ask how he could afford it (which most won’t) just say that he had a secret savings account or something. It’s none of their business anyway!

People are going to judge you, your ring, and your relationship wherever you go. People you know, people you just met, strangers on the street. ‘Tis the nature of the beast.

Whatever you do, just make sure you can be confident in letting it all bounce off. If you can do that with a 1 ct moiss, then do it. If you think you can’t deal with naysayers, then go with something smaller.

Do what makes you both happy. You already decided on moissy, which brings the cost of the ring down quite a bit, so I wouldn’t compromise on the size you want. I love my moissy and like it even more than my diamond solitare. So enjoy πŸ™‚ PS. No one has ever guessed mine isn’t a diamond and get loads of compliments on my beautiful diamond! lol, but I do like to share its a moissy, why no educate people on othe roptions out there, right?

@amille56:  Yes you can! Who cares what people think.. How it looks depends on many factors so at the end of the day what matters is how you like or don’t like the way it looks on your finger.

If people ask how he could afford it, tell them you don’t know, or you think it was a family stone or something. My mom used to do that, telling people that it’s a family ring gets rid of the questions about size and price, even if you know the exact specs of it.

Get the sized ring you want, and own it and what it represents. Regardless of what people think, if you love it that’s all that matters!

I have a moissy solitaire and a diamond solitaire and everyone assumes that they are both diamond. I even wear them on the same finger somtimes; and really, unless you are stairing at them closely, you can’t really tell the difference. The moissy sparkles a whole lot more in flourescent lighting, and looks more yellow (because the moissy is a J color equiv. and the diamond is a D, so it would be obvious anyways). If you get a moissy, I would suggest getting an enhanced/amora stone. They are beautiful, post pics when you get it πŸ˜‰
