    @amanda1266: What about moissanite? Or white sapphire? Have you considered those as alternatives?

    Also, what are you considering “fake?”

    I don’t think alot of the bees buy “fake” diamonds to imitate diamonds, they buy beautiful stones because that is what they want. I don;t believe anyone of them do it to pass it off as a diamond…. With that being said, My ring has a diamond.

    What makes you think a lot of bees have fake diamonds? If you’re referring to moissanite I can assure you I have never seen a bee claim her ring as a real diamond, as moissanite is a gemstone. For the record mine is 100% real but not sure why it matters in the grand scheme.

    I think you’re better off going with a smaller real diamond…you can always upgrade it as time goes on…My diamond is real…and If we weren’t so blessed and we couldn’t afford a huge ring I would never waste money on something that wouldn’t last, but thats my personal opinion…Good Luck!

    uh oh. I see you are new to the boards, but I just want to give you a heads up: there are many bees who do not respond well to the word “fake”, many find it offensive. 

    you might want to redo your poll so the choices are “diamond” “moissanite” “asha” “other clear white gemstone” or something to that effect. you might get a more accurate answer to your question that way.

    Personally, I am getting a Moissanite because I don’t like diamonds and do not want to own one. I want a beautiful, long-lasting gemstone in a color that will suit all of my clothing styles, and Moissanite gives me that. I don’t consider it a “fake” diamond – it’s Moissanite, an alternative gemstone to diamonds.

    Mine is a diamond, but I certainly don’t think of Moissanite as a fake diamond…I think of it as real Moissanite!

    I would highly advise a little more research as well then.

    A moissanite is not a lesser, wannabe diamond. It’s a gorgeous gemstone in its own right and actually has MORE sparkle than a diamond, while being more durable as well (i.e., only slightly less hard and not as brittle).
