    @gemgirl6:  Thank you for reiterating every point.. again.

    Gosh, it must be so fulfilling to feel superior to people who you believe “settled” by not buying something you yourself own.


    To OP: I apologize for the nonsense tirade that was perpetrated on your innocent thread. If you’d like to ask more moissanite questions to a less superior audience, perhaps you should visit the forums at betterthandiamond.com or thefacetlounge.com

    @Kat:  you said: “Gosh, it must be so fulfilling to feel superior to people…”

    Of course I don’t feel “superior” to anyone because I own some diamonds. Thats ridiculous! While of course diamonds are coveted and worth more monetarily than a cz or moissanite, that doesn’t mean that diamond owners feels like they’re better than people that don’t have them. Thats ludicrous!
    Clearly I don’t mind “debating” or discussing topics with anyone but believe you have responded with your emotions, certainly not factually.

    Tee hee the snipping makes me giggle. OP I think the stone looks awesome on you!! I am a younger bride as well, as are most of my friends. Everyone in my little old cow town gets married real young. Most everyone I know has 1-1.5 carat rings.  All different stones, but a lot of diamonds. Some get grandmas rock, others get good deals at pawn shops (like really really good! My best friends diamond ring was 1000 for a 1 carat diamond!!)


    I have never seen a stone on any age person and though ” wow thats big!!! It must be fake!!” I usually thing “oooooooh shiny!” 


    While your first ring was super pretty, i love the second. I like bigger stones personally, and have a thing about diamonds so I may be biased :). Again and most jmportantly your ring is perfect

    Um…  anyway.

    Back to the OP, I think the larger stone looks beautiful and sizable on your hand, but I got engaged during my senior year of college with a 1 ct and people were really surprised at the size. No one questioned whether it was “real” or “natural” or whatever the f people are defining diamonds by now, but there was tangible surprise and excitement at the size of my ring. If you are worried about that, you might try downsizing to a 1 ct which is more in the medium range of stone sizes. If not, a 1.25 will be gorgeous and look fantastic on your hand! Especially in such a beautiful setting 🙂

    @diamondsforevershine:  Thanks for telling me that.

    I was starting to wonder why I was being targeted for having an opinion that I didn’t really think was all that rude to begin with. I just don’t see why some people think you can’t love ALL stones. I love diamond and I love moissanite; obviously they have a lot in common. I love other gems too.

    Why limit yourself, ya know?

    I personally thing the original ring looks much better on your hand than the large mossy!

    @oneofthesethings:“Oh good grief – enough with the humblebragging. Yes your big rock is awesome. But really no one in real life cares. I’m so tired of these posts.”


    A little late to the party, but I read this and it made me giggle. I stalk the boards all the time, though I don’t post much- and I’d never heard of humblebragging before, but I spit out the water I was drinking when I read this 🙂

    @frommisstomrs.:  I’m also late to the party! I really love your original setting and I’m guessing the colour difference is a part of why you’re upgrading. I think the size of your current diamond is quite nice and In My Humble Opinion I would think anything bigger than 1ct would overpower the beautiful delicate setting! I think I already said I love the setting, but I’ll say it again: I LOVE it! Smile

    To the OP, I think the larger white sparkly stone looks great on you! The slightly smaller white sparkly stone is great as well, but if you want finger coverage, go for the larger one! 🙂

    I think the 1.38 stone looks great on you! I personally don’t think it looks too big. I would go with whatever you’re going to feel most comfortable wearing. If you dont think you would be comfortable with that size stone, then go a little smaller. If you think you’d be comfortable, then get it.
