I thought maybe it would be fun to create a post for us all to post pictures of our rings. State specifics if you want, but DONT state whether it is a diamond or a moissanite. I thought it would be fun to see if we can tell the difference between the two.
1.share your ring picture
2.share any specifics on size
3.DONT share whether is moissanite or diamond
If you would like to find out which is which, you can PM the bee to find out. ( if you don’t mind)
Here’s a stock photo of the ring we are getting

I think this is a great idea. I don’t have mine yet, but when it’s finished I’ll play along.

Here’s my newly acquired engagement ring!
Specs: 1 carat, size 5 finger, 3mm band, not sure what the carat is of the side diamonds.

Ooh cool idea but I don’t think I can play cause I already know what most people’s rings are 😉

@MabelleBliss: I was just thinking that! There should be “no cheating” by looking at the bees’ thread history, hee hee.

@Soon2bMrsGski: guessing yours is moissanite, hard to tell from the angle of the photo but it doesn’t look like there is a circle in the middle, so I am guessing it’s a moissy
@sommertime: at first I thought diamond, but now I am thinking it’s a moissy also!

MabelleBliss is right. It’s going to be hard to fool people that stalk the boards. We should do what Dub D said and not look back. Maybe we won’t be able to remember what some are =). I think this will mainly be helpful for new bees that are trying to decide which stone to go with. BTD has several threads that show one moissanite vs. one diamond, but I think it would be cool to get a bunch of examples in one place.

I would gues sthe following:
Soon2bMrsGski: Moissanite? But it’s hard to tell since it’s a stock photo, so I’m not really sure.
Sommertime: Enhanced moissanite
MrsKennedy2be: Enhanced moissanite
Those are my guesses. Sometimes I find it harder to distinguish between moissanite & diamond in pictures than in real life. But if I’m right about my moissy guesses, you girls got really nice moissanites and I would definitely guess that they are enhanced.

love all the rings! I figured it would be hard for some of us who have seen some of these rings, but it will be helpful for new bees and maybe we’ll see some we havent seen before. I have never seen Lori’s ring before. its gorgeous! and I am also get an Mark Silvertsein ring woohoo!
But I do agree that in person, it is harder to spot whether one has a diamond or a moissanite.

Im not a regular poster, but ive been lurking since December. I just love coming here and looking at all the beautiful rings, whether it be CZ, Amora, Moissanite or diamond !
This is my second diamond and setting since December, my origianl stone was sold to me without any certification and just looked kinda wonky to me after about a week of looking at it, so i took it back to the jewelers and picked out a GIA stone which I love!
The original setting was a WG channel set which was just too light and kept turning my diamod sidways all the time which was driving me crazy, so i decided to replace that with my current Mark Silverstein setting which i totally love!

@LoriM: I have never seen your ring before its gorgeous!
So since I know what the other rings are I wont guess on them.. But I am going to say yours is a diamond?
