Lots of women here have moissanites, and from moissaniteco.com as well!  I love my moissanite ring.  It’s more sparkly than a diamond, almost as hard and beautiful!!!  I highly recommend them.  🙂

I’m SO sorry that happened to you! I can’t imagine! 

I happen to have a moissanite engagment ring from MoissaniteCo.com, and so do LOTS of other women here. Moissanite is an amazing stone, and I’m sure you’ll love it. I don’t have a whole lot of experience or knowledge of diamonds, but most women on here say they cannot tell the difference, and I can’t really either.

Here’s a picture of my ring if you’d like to see:

I am so sorry for the bad news! is there any way possble the puppy could have eaten it?  I’ve heard of that before.

Did you check with your (or your fiance’s) homeowners insurance company?  You should have some coverage for jewelry, even if it’s not the full value.

You should also consider looking online for preowned rings. Checkout the site idonowidont.com and diamondbistro.com!

@capergrrl: Aww sooo sorry this happened…bathing the dog makes me nervous for this reason too! I personally do not have a moissanite but from being on this site for a while, I have heard nothing but rave reviews about the price, quality and service.

PLUS, all the moissanite rings look beautiful on here! Check out some of the posts and you will see:)

I never knew about moissanite until being on the Bee. After reading so much about it, I can honestly tell you that if my ring gets lost we will do a moissy replacement. So much more economical.

@capergrrl:  oh, poor puppy! at least now you don’t have to monitor his poo.

anyway, as for your mom’s comment:

the reason why people go with moissy instead of a cheap wal-mart grade CZ is because it’s so strong and high quality, it should (in theory) last as long as a diamond. it could be your permanent ring if you wanted it to be, not just a placeholder.

for me, moissanite was not intended to be a short term solution.  I chose it because I think it’s high quality enough to be “worthy” as my official wedding band.  if I had gotten the same exact band with diamonds, it would have cost 2-4 times more (even if the diamonds were low quality and cheap). 

but anyway, if it turns into a battle with your mom, just do a search for “moissanite” in weddingbee and show her all of the threads on it. maybe it will help change her mind. but then again, maybe not!

go for it!  I loooove my moissy and get lots of compliments on it.  I got engaged around the same time as another friend who has a $$$$ diamond ring and I never feel like mine is inferior or anything.  We actually got mine from amazon (joyjewelers) but its a solitare with a thin dainty band.  If you want a detailed setting moissaniteco.com is the way to go, hands down!
