- Wedding: December 2016
Hello you all,
Im fairly new here 🙂 and I’m certain this ‘moissy vs diamond’ has been done to death. But bear with me!
I’ve been lurking around weddingbee ever since the bf proposed, trying to decide on the perfect Engagement Ring. At first, I decided to go with a diamond ring. But last week, when I saw the diamond in person, I don’t know, it didn’t seem to shine/sparkle as much as I’d expected. Of course it was a 0.3 carat VS2 I colour daimond in a rather dull white room, so maybe that’s how it was meant to be. But I was mighty disappointed with it. I’m paying a bomb (relatively) for it and the least it could do was to sparkle, right?!
Anyway, so I researched moissanites based on those lovely pictures I saw here, and found a local store that sells them. I live in Bombay, India so moissanites are mostly unheard of, and the reaction, I’m assuming, would be ‘fake *gasp*’! I’m gonna drag the bf to check moissanite rings today! Yay!
However, the bf is not so keen on moissanite as he claims he can ‘easily’ spot the difference between a daimond and the moissanite in the videos I showed him (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CVdtqtD3Vu4 and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wM-Upx-sEAk) Honestly, I can’t tell the difference, but he claims he can. pfft.
So, what I need help with is – do you think there is any compelling reason one shouldn’t go for moissanites? Because, as of now I’m pretty much in love with these gems, so if there is something I should know, now would be a good time! 🙂
Also, I’ve read that they ‘yellow’ in a while. How long have you been wearing your moissanite?
Sorry for the long, probably even redundant, post. The Engagement Ring Moissanite market is not that well known in India and hence I’d be grateful if I can get any additional info 🙂
