- Wedding: August 2020 - Hampton, VA
I have one that is large and it’s an antique cut. It isn’t a common looking stone in my opinion, to begin with, but no one has asked if it was real. Because of the unique cut, they might wonder, but I think that’s the reason – not because of how it looks or sparkles. Most people are uneducated about the cuts/types of stones out there, and in a beautiful setting, no one would expect it to be fake.
I had one friend, who I thought was pretty jewelry savvy, say it was an emerald cut. 😀 I just nodded and smiled, as we were in a group and I did not want to embarrass her. haha
No one will ask you if it’s fake and if they do, you don’t have to answer. I’d be inclined to reply with a statement of how rude that is to begin with. To answer your questions though:
Where did you get your moissanite? Did you just get the stone or the enitre ring from the same place?
I got mine from The True Gem Company. It’s a real store in Dallas, TX, but I live in VA so I ordered online. I got the whole thing from there, stone and ring. They have options of gemstone type, cut, color grade, size, gold color, etc. They will customize anything and their customer service is AMAZING.
Are you happy with it? Any pros/cons of having it?
I LOVE IT!! She is so sparkly and beautiful. Pros – it has all the four C’s of an expensive diamond in an affordable gemstone that will last just as long. I can use the money we would have spent toward a diamond on the wedding instead. No cons.
Do you tell people it’s moissanite? Has anyone been able to tell by looking at your ring?
I do if I think they’ll understand the decision. Some people do not understand gemstones or jewelry in general. Some people think lab created stones are “fake” or if it isn’t a diamond it isn’t worth anything. They’re uneducated so I gracefully accept their compliments and move on without disclosing what stone it is. Besides, no one asks that anyway. Most people don’t know about moissanite, but when I tell people they’re shocked it’s not a diamond. 🙂
