Honestly, she might actually know the rings she pinned are moissanite and like the stone! I would bring it up. I woulnd’t lie about it though. She will find out when she gets it cleaned, ect. And that would be really bad! It has nothing to do with it not being a diamond either. I would say the exact same thing to someone wanting to ger their girlfriend a diamond and saying its a moissanite.

I would go with a moissanite, im sure if she pinned lots of them that she realised they were moissys. Yoi could also come up with a cute story to go with it as to why you chose a moissanite. For exapmle moissanite originated from a mineral found on a comet that landed on earth so you could say you chose a moissy becasue your love is out of this world! haha (though i wouldnt go for something that cheesy :P)

Firstly, I think it’s great that you’ve found the woman you want to marry and that you’re putting a good deal of thought into this. 

Secondly, agree with most of the PPs I read (can’t say I’ve read all NINE pages!) that you should raise it with her – perhaps come up with a round about way to discuss diamonds vs alternatives (if you want to keep it a surprise) – or you can come right out with it and open up the discussion. But no, don’t pretend to give her a diamond.
