I don’t think that picture, without any background story is enough to make a determination as to whether the ring is real, fake, or anything else. 

If you think your friend is lying to you – and it really upsets you, you should confront her about it instead of writing on a board like this. I bet her response will be nicer than the reactions you’re getting on here.

My ring is a D and looks like that.

Does it matter? if we all got on here and said “yeah she’s totally lying” you’d get some kind of satisfaction out of that? That’s not bff behaviour.

It looks exactly like a 1 carat princess cut and I’m not good with color but it looks pretty colorless. Is it bigger than yours? is that why this upsets you?

futurejhart:  looks like a 1 carat or very close. It’s a pretty ring and stone. Do you really think she would have a reason to lie to you? And.. Is that pic you posted her pic? Seems like an invasion of sorts.

futurejhart:  This thread is SO completely sad to me. For what it’s worth- her ring looks like exactly what she says it is. It is a beautiful diamond. It is clearly not a composite/ quad. The color looks great. It looks to be 1 carat. If she sees this post, what will it say about you– her “best friend” who instead of celebrating her union is posting that you think she’s insecure and lying about her ring?

I know it is hard to read posts where most comments disagree with you, but I think you should REALLY take some time to reflect on why you would a)think she was lying b) go so far as to post her e-ring picture to a public website to talk about her and her ring in this way. You said in a follow-up comment that lying is not “exactly best friend behavior.” I’m confused as to how you think that posting this and assuming the worst about her makes you a good best friend. Could it be that you are projecting YOUR insecurities on to her? Are you jealous of her ring? Does it make you feel insecure about yours? There are literally TONS of beautiful e-rings. You can both have lovely rings that are perfect for each of you. Her beautiful ring doesn’t make your ring any less special. Please think about trying to be the friend to her that you are accusing her of not being. It doesn’t seem like your BFF is the problem here.

futurejhart:  Are you even engaged yet? If not, how could she be trying to compete with your ring? She also has sent you HUNDREDS of pictures of her ring?? Seriously?

I think her ring is a beauty! And it looks like a diamond, not a quad etc as everyone else has said. Why would you think she is lying? Is there some sort of past behaviour we dont know about? Honestly, this is not coming off looking good for you. As others have said, I’d delete this thread quick smart! It’s a private photo she sent to you. Lots of people get on WB after getting engaged… it wouldn’t be too far a stretch that she might find this…

Delete, delete, delete!

How is her getting engaged the same as being in competition with your ring? <br />Be happy for her! Yeesh!

futurejhart:  I’m curious what makes you think she would lie? What about her texts & pictures gives you reason to question her?

It looks real to me, but there is no way to know for sure.

If she is really lying, maybe it’s because she doesn’t think you will truly accept her choice of going the non-diamond route; and, so far, it seems that she would be warranted in her motives if that was the case.

futurejhart:  Your friend seems to be telling the truth. If in fact that is her ring, she not only got the 1 carat, D color but looks like a stone with pretty good clarity too in the picture.

Most of us are trying to understand you for what I read from previous posts. The terms you are using  to describe what you think her diamond or stone is do not make sense :-/. Trillions are just triangle shaped diamonds. And by composite I can’t figure out if you mean a cluster (which this ring isn’t) or you meant a simulant?

Either way, you both have rings! Which means you are or ideally are supposed to be enjoying a very happy time in your lives. Just enjoy and celebrate !

It looks like there is a very good chance that your friend is telling the truth. And for some reason, there is a trust issue here.

It looks 1ct, but I think it looks more like CZ than diamond.

I think it looks like exactly what she is saying it is.

I don’t think you are a very nice friend for posting her private pick on the internet and askingstrangers to pick it to pieces.
