jewels84 :  Lol yes! 

DrAtkins :  I’ve never seen a natural diamond OEC or Moissy OEC in real life but is the loose stone on the left the diamond and right the moissy? Only difference I can see is the right one looks more facetted than the left.

MrsGirlyGirl :  The loose stone on the left is the moissanite! I figured the poster I directed that question to wouldn’t want to play πŸ˜‰ but I couldn’t leave you all hanging!

jewels84 :  πŸ™‚

DrAtkins :  ah I was wrong lol. I’m not familiar with OECs at all though. Both look nice to me πŸ˜‰ yep I noticed she never answered your question.

penny1403 :  you know, it IS possible to say you’re not a fan of something without being insulting. Shall we not compare people’s very sentimental engagement rings to cheap gift wrap? Kind of a crap thing to do.

DrAtkins :  I was wrong also. Ugh this isn’t helping my wallet, as I strongly covet an OEC moissanite 😬 πŸ˜†.

I might be strange here, but I prefer the aesthetic of moissanites over that of diamonds. Diamonds sparkle, but moissanites glitter aggressively.

I went for moissanite for most of the reasons you’ve described: ethical and socially conscious choice, inflated diamond value, could spend money better on other things in our lives. Here is my moissanite, people presume it’s a diamond and are shocked that it’s not when I tell them. I’m happy to tell people, I love it and I want it to be more popular in Australia!

Strong side eyes for your snarky words, especially after reading your previous posts…

I wouldn’t be so quick to judge OPs jewellery choice. At least her SO is willing to buy her the jewellery she asks for…..

DrAtkins :  I wouldn’t play just because you wanted me to…

 

Diamonds have a darker gray color in photos. It is very obvious which one is darker.

I just said they look similar and I prefer the look of diamonds for engagement rings. Truth be told, I am picky about diamonds and only want high quality ones without inclusions. Many other people do not care about that. carowl :

I do want a pink moissy that I am hoping will have a pink iridescent cellophane bag look. I have a solitaire setting that I removed the diamond but would like to just have something different.

penny1403 :  of course you would say it’s “obvious” AFTER DrAtkins posts the answer… πŸ˜‚

penny1403 :  yeah, I’m sure you can’t tell the difference, and while I’ve seen moissanite get moody and go dark grey, I’ve never seen that in my diamond nice try. There’s a way to say you dont like something without shitting all over other’s choices. If you want a cellophane bag look, get a mystic topaz. I have a pink moissanite and sorry to disappoint you, but it looks nothing like that. Work on your attitude around here, or dont post.
