All this and no pics?! 

I’ve had several moissanites and I do think they’re beautiful, but ultimately I wanted a diamond for my wedding finger. It was important to husband, too. I also didn’t want to feel like I had to go into a dissertation about moissanite every time I was complimented, but those are my own hangups. I love seeing rings on others regardless of what they are made of.

drbee2020 :  

I love your post! Very detailed and honest. 

My moissy is 3 carat and strangers often compliment my “diamond.” 

I believe that nobody will question a moissy unless they are a jewellery expert.

Awesome review! I have a couple of questions I’m wondering if anyone here can answer, 

From all of the pictures I’ve seen, moissys look a little cloudier on average than most of the diamonds that I’ve seen. Is this just badly cut moissys or picture quality? Do you notice a clarity difference between a really well cut diamond and a really well cut moissy?

I’ve also heard that they can get a film/stain over them more easily than diamonds, which may be why? It sounds like you’ve had a great experience with yours never getting dirty, though!

My sister has a moissy, and off hand there’s no way I would have known it wasn’t a diamond until I started looking for my own ring and found out about them!

drbee2020 :  Honestly, some moissanite rings seem inexplicably pricy, given that moissanite is generally considered simulant. For example, Charles and Colvard sells a three stone ring that is priced the same as a similar diamond ring I recently purchased at an estate sale.

anonymousbee001 :  Why do you feel the need to point this out everywhere?

I really don’t know much about Moissanite so can’t comment either way on it’s features, but very good job on listing your pros and cons it was interesting to read.

Are diamonds even an “investment” though? (For the record I have a diamond as my coming-soon engagement ring) but I thought diamonds were like cars, they start losing their value as soon as you buy them. I don’t think anyone could sell their diamond for what they bought it for, much less for more, which is what I think of as being an investment so I’m just curious what others have heard? I think maybe the investment idea is just really good PR by De Beers.

I choose a natural ethical diamond, because I’ve been brainwashed by the industry and that’s just what I feel is the most romantic and forever option, but I knew it was basically throwing money by the window which is why I went with a super tiny stone (literally like 0.10 I think I might win the bee contest for smallest ering!)

chelbell23 :  I thought the comment was relevant, given that this is a post about comparing moissanite and diamond.

labelleabeille :  But it’s not a diamond vs. moissanite thread, it’s a pros and cons of moissanite thread.

chelbell23 :  Not everywhere, but I do think it is something helpful that people don’t typically consider, especially when they are choosing moissanite as “affordable” alternative. The original poster lists as one the “pros” that it is “cheaper”: I’m merely pointing out that it is not always much cheaper. Plus, in contrast your moissanite, I probably could sell my diamond for more than I paid.
