janna121215 :  I agree regarding “old money”. I grew up in a town with lots of old money and inherited wealth. The parents usually made their children have a job in high school and pay for their own cars. They rarely wore anything designer and they didn’t drive flashy cars, but they had a private jet and went to Europe for a weekend whenever they fancied. They had multiple homes in various locations. Some of their surnames were ones that anyone on this board would recognize.

But likewise, they did not wear flashy jewelry. Indeed, most of the women wore plain gold bands. So, one cannot praise the understatedness of the generationally wealthy on one hand and try to justify a very large diamond sim on the other. People who HAVE money have nothing to prove, whether you are talking about cars or clothes or jewelry.

Wait… if you graduated college in ’94, then how old is your grandma? Not saying shes super old or anything, but I know my grandma certainly can’t see as well as she did 20+ years ago and I’m only 25. Your grandma very well may not be able to tell the difference even if she were somewhat learned on moissonite because she likely doesn’t have perfect eyesight. Also, grandmas generally aren’t huge internet users so she probably hasn’t even heard of moissonite because it is a relatively new trend. So if she vaguely knows your income level/lifestlye and knows you can afford a diamond of that size & quality and your main goal is to impress her with size, then she will probably assume it’s a diamond because its what she is used to. 

However, I also read from you that she is judegy in general and is having issues with the fact that you are not the same race… so my question is- why are you even worried about impressing her? I know she is your grandma, and I am sure you love her, but it honestly seems like you may not be able to please her regardless. And not only that, she isn’t going to be around to judge you forever (not saying she is going anywhere anytime soon, but chances are that you will be wearing your e-ring for a lot longer than she will be judging you for it).

Basically, if you want: a large center stone, to save some cash, to avoid the diamond industry, a white stone, and you don’t care if people (other than grandma) know that it is not a diamond…. then I think you have your answer. Own your moissonite and wear it in good health!

ms2mrs94 :  I don’t know anything about a moissanite, nor do I have the time to analyze or care about someone’s ring. 

If money isn’t an issue and you simply like that particular stone, it doesn’t matter. It only matters if you are trying to impress others by passing it as a diamond. 

It sounds like there are other issues that are causing you to care about how your Fiance is being perceived. My advice is to pick a ring that makes you happy and feel comfortable around your family and peers.

SoonMrsCrocker2 :  Why do you think that? I can’t tell the difference between a diamond and a moissy in real life (unless the lighting is just right), so I’m confused why you think someone glancing at my ring would be able to…Again, I DON’T pass my moissy off as a diamond, and I tell almost everyone that it’s a moissy. They look genuinely shocked to learn that it’s not a diamond.

girl how is Grandma going to even see that stone? You graduated college in 94?

Anyway, I’ve seen some moissanites where I knew right away, some where I was surprised to hear they were moissy. The ones I knew right away were quite large, but also may have come down to a quality factor. I’ve never asked someone where they got their moissy, and from what I’ve read some are just better than others. You rock that moissy and wear it proud.

I think anyone who advertises that they are on the big bucks and can afford a diamond easily, but want a big sim……probably cant……if you could, why wouldnt you, if your conservative you would most likely get a smaller sized perfect diamond….instead to get a 2.5ct simulant and hope no one knows……I really think your setting your self up for major disappointment. If your OCD is as bad as you say, a moissy is going to drive you mental. I would rethink it and order a beautiful diamond with great specs based on your story…..

KaliTanisha :  I love these examples, they certainly depict the true beauty and differences between the real deal and a simulant. Each to their own of course but i believe in this bee’s case, a diamond is the best choice purely based on her story…If I am wrong, then i have misunderstood her totally.

ms2mrs94 :  Wait, you’re deep into your 40’s and care what your grandma and others think of your ring? 🤔😂

 

If you get a moissy be confident in your choice and leave it at that…. without all of the justification and explanation. If you can’t manage to do that (which is how it seems), you probably need to get an actual diamond.
