shelbyyyg:  I’m really, really happy with our moissanite purchase. Go with it and get a house along with it!

I get it if someone says “I can’t afford a diamond, so I am getting an alternative”…I get it if someone says “I don’t want to spend the money on a diamond, so I am going to get an alternative”…when someone says “the alternatives are BETTER than a diamond” (for whatever reason), I am throwing the bullshit flag and calling jealousy.

Well, we’d kinda have to define, “better”, in that context before we could assign any intentions to their statement, don’t you think?

NFLwidow:  One stone (moissanite, Cz, Amora gem)was created and is manmade to simulate the other natural stone (diamond) at a much lower price point.  One is coveted, and monetarily valued much more than the other.    The definition of “better” is pretty clear in this context. Lets be real here.  Lol!

Oh, too funny. Love that guy!

mrstodd2bee:  

I’d disagree. I’d want to know what the Bee was talking about when she says “better” before I form an opinion about her approach to bling buying. I feel the same about people talking up their ceramic knives while I’m still using my Ginsu set bought off the TV with our wedding money.

I have a diamond Ering, and I love it. But if I’d known about moissanite at the time, I would have opted for that instead. Different from a diamond and beautiful in it’s own way. Great quality stone, gorgeous rings, unbeatable price.

mrstodd2bee:  Totally disagree with you, there. I have both diamonds and moissys, and moissanite is a gemstone in it’s own right. When I choose to wear my moissanite, I do so because it’s different. If it looked the same as my diamond, I wouldn’t bother wearing moissanite.

Rarity and cost doesn’t make something “better.” This is entirely a matter of personal preference.

ladycirtolthiel:  so you wear a simulant because it looks different than your diamond. Ok.

mrstodd2bee:  Yes, because it’s different, it’s not like a diamond. People choose all kinds of different stones for Erings, because some people don’t like diamonds. Other people (like me) love all different kinds of gemstones, including diamonds, moissy, colored gemstones, etc.

Also, I think you need to learn the difference between “simulant” and “lab created.” Man made moissanite is not a diamond simulant. It’s a lab created version of natural moissanite, which is extremely rare (too rare to distribute widely as jewelry), and chemically identical to the real thing.

The only reason you came here was to try and make people feel bad about wearing moissanite. Do you really feel so badly about yourself, that you have to try to make other people feel bad? I feel sorry for you. *hugs*

I won’t say anything more on this topic, as this thread has been derailed, and it’s not beneficial to the OP anymore.

ladycirtolthiel:  . As was mentioned a few pages back,  moissanite is naturally green and too small to use. It’s changed to look like a diamond. No question that’s its a diamond simulant. No need to be insulting to me in your response!
