If you aren’t engaged yet…how are you getting married in August????  That is so little time to plan!

I would suggest you stop thinking of moissanite as “fake” and maybe you won’t be as sensitive to it.  Also when your ring is next to someone elses’ with a diamond, you will notice it looks different.  not bad, just different.  Mostly in the colors coming out of the sparkles.  Likely only you will notice, but if you get questions you might want to be prepared with answers.

We decided to mostly refer to my “stone” so we never actually say diamond or moissanite.  However, our parents and siblings and best friends were all told when the time was right (as in, if it came up in conversation and I felt comfortable telling them).  If they judged me on it, that says more about them then me.

“We also agreed that we would NOT talk about it to anyone.  I am not trying to deliberately fool people into thinking it’s a diamond, but I just don’t want to go around advertising the fact.  Also, fiance thinks it’s hilarious that we can get a substitute and fool people into thinking he paid an arm and a leg for an e-ring.”

 

If you’re not trying to fool people into thinking its a diamond, why do you care if people know its not a diamond? You’ve basically contradicted yourself here. So, if someone asks you if its a diamond are you willing to say “no”?

Why not just get a pretty ring, and not some huge stone?  If you get a huge stone, you’re inviting people to ask whether it’s real.

Did she believe him when he said he’s getting you a big “fake” ring or did she just take it that he was joking?

I honestly don’t see what’s wrong with him making a joke about a 3 ct fake ring with his mom. I doubt she’d have any reason to suspect the ring wasn’t a diamond based on a joke, and I’d be no more upset than if he’d joked “yeah mom, I’m buying her a ring pop shaped like sponge bob.”

I’d try to ease up a bit, and if the mere mention of “fake” rings in this context upsets you, then maybe you should reconsider?

I just reread your original post, and see that you are upset with your fiance joking around about getting a huge ring, not about the kind of ring you’re getting!  Sorry!  Yeah, guys are idiots sometimes.  =)

@mspartridge:  lol I so didn’t intend to start any fake vs real ring debate (obviously since I have a moissy I don’t think its fake).  I just meant that if you react that way to him joking about a “fake” ring, that might be a give-away to other people that you are hiding some sort of truth, you know? So had that happened in front of anybody, it might have gotten awkward, but since it was on the phone, no big deal.  He probably just thought he was being funny, lol men.
