Sigh. And the maturity and classiness continues.
ETA: Nevermind, looks like the catty comment was removed. Carry on, m’dears.
I don’t mind people saying that they would rather have an earth born stone rather than a lab born one, but the latter is not a “fake.” It’s a rather terrible miscarriage of language to say so.
Once again, I am an outside observer in this debate as I have no interest in either stone (white sapphire = TTCR), although it would appear I am getting one of them fairly soon…
@lovelyallure: Moissy is a cheaper stone, yep I said it CHEAP!!! a flat screen is more expensive then a regular T.V. that’s life. if you bought it great and guess what?? I think it’s beautiful. But, I don’t have one my Fiance bought me a diamond ring I liked.
And I hate the people that are saying.. oh I’m glad he didn’t buy it because he has the money.. and he isn’t poor now. Get over it. Geez.
Just because moissanite costs less than diamonds doesn’t make it any less beautiful. I have seen plenty of diamonds that cost alot but look awful! Just because something costs more doesn’t make it any better. I find it very interesting how fixated you are on this price of things and the ‘prestige’ that is associated with it.
It takes a very confident women to rock a diamond alternative and get passed the whole idea it has to be a diamond.
@Asia Leone: You make it sound like everyone with a moissanite ring has got something that is HUGE whereas most of the ladies on this board (that I have seen) don’t really have anything over about 2 ct and they usually buy a carat size that they could afford in a diamond. Even if they did have anything larger I highly doubt that they have showed it off and rubbed its size into your face and put your diamond down; you sound a bit oversensitive there.
@laherna12: Have you given any more thought to you whether you will go with moissanite or keep the diamond?
I have thought about it and have discussed it with my husband…We want to get a moissanite! I think they are beautiful and with all the information that everyone has shared I am convinced that I’m going to love it. We still haven’t decided where to buy from but, I look at MoissaniteCo.com daily 🙂 Thanks ladies!
P.S I’m going to make my original engagement ring diamond into a necklace…If I ever have children I would love to pass it on to him or her 🙂
Does anyone know how often MoissaniteCo.com adds new rings?
I think this is the ring I want…I can’t wait!!!!!
beautiful!! congrats on your decision 🙂
As soon as I saw how long this post got, I knew it had turned into a cat fight. I’m sorry but I’m laughing all the way to the bank with my gorgeous engagement ring that saved me and my fiance 5,000 dollars. I prefer lab stones because they don’t have to be mined– and frankly I don’t like the idea of a child or very underpaid laborer slaving away for my engagement ring. I’m sorry, but if you see “Blood Diamonds: the Documentary” and actually see people being paid $2.00 every three days, your heart will break. Can every purchase I make be completely ethical? Of course not. Sweat shop goods are unavoidable, but I wanted either an antique or a lab stone. And I’m happy it’s moissanite. Do I care what other people buy? No. But if someone disses moissanite and calls it fake, I’m going to defend my choice. And I tell most people what it really is, and they’re usually intrigued.
@ littleaudrey and miss tattoo: I agree with you ladies! people should do their homework. unfortunately, the internet is full of misinformation.
