    Bridetobe543:  AGREED. I have super chubby fingers (the rest of me is not very skinny either, soooo ya know) but my ring is a pretty high carat size and it doesnt even look that big. Put that baby on my tiny sister’s hands and people would go nuts. I keep wondering if I can work out my fat hands to get more finger coverage… 😉

    As long as it’s not a moissanit then heck no, lol. It’s lovely. Be proud of that big rock. Anyone who says it’s too big (unless they are super old or super religious) is just hating in my straight up opinion! My Fiance was reading up on my ring the other day it told me it’s. 0.75. Fine by me, but I’d take that 1.89 of yours any day!

    MrsAL2012:  I don’t like them! My understanding (I could be wrong, though) is that it’s a fantastic imitation diamond, but an imitation it still is. I hate fake things is all. It takes away from the value of something real. Unless 100% of Moissanite owners admit to what they are, but I doubt they will… Instead, they will be passed off as diamonds and I don’t like that. I associate them with fake Uggs, knock off LV purses and silk flowers… It’s a complete low grade copy of something else. Give me a good pair of Aldo boots, a small Coach clutch, or DIY paper flowers and I love them all. I like alternatives, but I can’t stand imitation. Moissanite is the new CZ.

    mrspereira:  You know there are a LOT of bees on this board (myself included) with moissanite, right?  And I can’t speak for all moissy owners, but a very good portion of us are very eager to offer up that our ring is a moissanite and would never pass it off as something it’s not.  You could have just simply responded specifically to what the OP was asking without completely insulting a lot of other bees on here.

    OldGold:  It’s unfortunate you got offended, but I was asked a question so I answered it. I do tend to over explain, though! Rings at all about taste. I dislike Moissanites for the reasons mentioned above, but just as many (if not more) may love them. It’s nothing to get insulted or sensitive over, :).

    mrspereira:  The OP was asking for opinions on the size of her solitaire, not your stance on moissanite.  It’s fine if you dislike moissanite.  Lots of people love them, and lots of people don’t.  But it’s pretty simple to say (if the thread is indicative of this type of response) that moissanite is not for you and you prefer diamonds.  That’s a perfectly acceptable way to get your point aross as opposed to reducing a lot of other women’s engagment rings to, in your words, “a fake, low grade copy of something else, that is just the new CZ.”  It would take a high level of ignorance to spew out comments like yours and then think that it’s simply “unfortunate” that someone would get insulted.  There is a way to be tactful and considerate and still get your point across without being rude.
