People said some stupid things when I first got engaged (he must really love you! he knew he was marrying above his station, how can you lift your hand?, etc.), but no one has ever questioned whether my 2.02ct stone was real. I think a previous poster was correct that most people don’t care what other people are wearing.

I think most people have enough courtesy to only compliment someone’s ring. They might think it isn’t real in their head but doubt they’d say it out loud to your face unless it’s someone who is close enough to you where you wouldn’t feel offended.

Hello! I agree with other people! Get what you love! You’re the one who will be looking at it each day and I’m sure that once you have it you won’t regret it 🙂 I have a 2 carat solitaire and absolutely LOVE it! No one has ever asked me if it were real or not, but that could also do with where I live, as this size and larger are the norm.

boo do what makes you happy. Who cares what people think. I currently have a 3 ct round solitaire and I get more compliments than anything. 🙂

I get asked.. in a not so straight forward kind of way.. for a couple reasons.. first off…its because of my color.. you would think stereotyping is over.. but it will never be.. secondly.. people assume your ring should match your lifestyle.. to a degree.. I drive a KIA.. one that is more than a decade old.. not a Lexus or beamer.. or mercedes.. luxury cars.. I like shopping at wally world… and the dollar tree.. and I don’t really own any high end clothes.. because frankly.. I can use that extra money for anything else.. my 2ct.. was an upgrade..anniversary.. and I was against it.. but it’s something HE wanted to do..

I’ve been asked once about my 1.5ct but it was someone I didn’t really know. I will usually find an excuse to tell people it’s moissanite bc I love moissanite. It really depends on your circle and lifestyle though. There are people I know that if they got a bigger ring I would assume it was a cz or something bc I know they aren’t spending that kind of money on a ring, but I wouldn’t comment on it. I have at least 3 friends who are in the 200k+ salary range who still went with moissanite, nobody would question whether their rocks were “real”. Get what makes you happy but if you are worried about what people wi say and think about it (who isn’t even a little?) Ask yourself if you’d question it on YOU as someone outside looking in.

I live in NYC, the land of the 2ct engagement ring so having one isn’t an anomoly. I have a 2 ct diamond engagement ring and I’ve been asked point blank by strangers questions like “is it real?” and “is it cubic zirconia?”. I’ve also gotten plenty of passive aggressive comments and questions insinuating or assuming it’s not real.
Honestly – I think it’s because I’m black that I get the question so often and so rudely. I have friends and colleagues who also have 2ct rings and are shocked when I tell them the shit perfect strangers have the nerve to say to me about it. To give context, I got engaged February 2019 so I’ve now spent over a year with it.
But I don’t care and don’t regret having it for one second. It’s gorgeous, I can’t stop looking at it, and I don’t care if people think it isn’t real.

I don’t even have a diamond and I’ve been asked this 😂 honestly this shouldn’t influence what you get, people will say and think what they want no matter what you do, so no point worrying about it

My ring is only a carat, but speaking from my perspective as someone who does take note of people’s e-rings, I would NEVER be rude enough to ask that question.

People will ask weird and rude questions all the time. I have a blue sapphire e-ring, and strangers will ask if it’s my engagment ring, or ask if it’s real, or my personal favourite-“It almost looks real!”
Get what you like, and forget what those people say!

I’ve had a few people in fb ring groups try to say my ring is moissanite. It isn’t. It’s a 2.04 ct J vs2 from James allen. I don’t let it bother me. No one has said anything in real life

What a perfectly beautiful set. Elegant, luxe yet simple. Perfect.

Well it would be pretty huge here. Perhaps people might want to ask ‘is it real?’ by which l assume they would mean ‘is that a real diamond’? But l don’t think they actually would ask. Moissanite is hardly known here so perhaps they would think ‘hey massive diamond ‘or ‘l wonder if it is cz’ I might wonder myself, but would never ask of course.

wow, I can’t believe anyone would ask such a question. I’m sad reading the comments here that it may be racially motivated – you’d hope in this day and age that wouldn’t still be a thing. Some people just suck 🙁
I’m at 1.7 which is smaller than 2, but I’ve never even known or asked what the carat size of most rings are, and wouldn’t ever dream of asking such a question, but I suppose there will always be some pushy, rude people who might. I wouldn’t let that dictate getting what you really want though! wear that 2 carat with pride, I say!
