Like many bees have said, the info and pics I found while lurking around on Weddingbee definitely solidified my desire to go Moissanite for my ring! My SO was the one who initially told me about it as I had never heard of it, but it was the hive that really made me decide it was right for me! So I am curious as to how many of you decided because of Weddingbee like I did.
Thanks so much to all you kind ladies who have spent hours posting and reposting pictures and valuable information and recommendations! You truly help more girls than you know!

I somewhat knew I wanted it, but WB definitely sealed it! There’s so many threads full of Bees’ gorgeous Moissy rings.
It helped that a lot of the ladies here got their rings from MoissyCo as well. That’s where I wanted to get mine from (and did). All the positive reviews really cemented it.

@mepayne: Same here! We chose Moissyco because of the great recs on here and their fantastic selection!

Their selection is amazing! They honestly have the best one I’ve ever seen. You can get any style I’ve ever heard of with almost any shape stone. It made it harder to choose, because so many rings fit my simple criteria. All I wanted was a solitaire that I could sit my wedding ring directly next to without getting a custom or curved band. Generally, that’s a hard find, but not from MoissyCo.

Nope, I’ve been a moissanite fan long before I even knew the wedding bee existed! But, I’m so glad to see moissanite and soon the Amora Gem gaining awareness! Options are always a good thing! And really, if you are a sparkle addict, moissy is a great way to go!

I can’t figure out if it was Better Than Diamond or Weddingbee that introduced me to Moissanite. But it was definitely a combination of the two.
So glad I found out about diamond’s big sister 😛

I already knew about Moissanite, but the reviews and real life pictures definitely helped tons!

I found out about moissanite on Weddingbee for sure!! Never heard of it otherwise. I had just purchased a diamond ring but otherwise I would have strongly considered a moissy. I might get some moissy jewelery one day…:)

@Kat: Diamond’s big sis, love that!!!
@Scintillante: Congrats on your ring! Go for it! I love mine!

I voted yes but I went ad.com instead. I never would’ve heard about them nor have done the research had I not been on the bee.

I actually thought I head about lab-created diamonds and while googling that, came across posts of Moissanite on the WB. Joined WB, kept researching, later found out that they do create diamonds in a lab, but for more money and not in the size I’d like. Regardless, at that point, I had already made my choice to get moissanite. Actually, we’re waiting for the Amora Gem.

I’d had mine for months before I even heard of weddingbee (I read about it on reddit and the rest is history). But it was great to find all these other people that had one! A few of my friends that have gotten engaged since I did have chosen moissanite as well after I told them about it. Yay!

if I had just read the moissanite website alone and nothing else, I would have been worried that they were using deceptive marketing to make their claims. I would have been worried that I was being mislead, kind of like what happened with diamond nexus labs.
but I read what seemed like thousands of posts on the bee regarding how much people love their moissys in real life, so that was enough testimonial for me.
since moissanites are still relatively new (I mean, compared to other manmade gemstones), I still kind of wonder if we are going to find out something bad about them 10 or 20 years down the line.
however, part of my comfort is based on the fact that I did not buy the most expensive product from them– just one small eternity ring. I have to admit that I’d be more worried if I was buying a big expensive engagement ring from them.
have you tried asking any local jewelers what they think of them? I have taken my ring into a reputable jeweler in my town. I did not ask for her opinion, but she did not have anything bad to say about moissanite, and she was happy to work with my ring. (I’ve heard that some jewelers like to badmouth them, but it just seems like sour grapes.)

Yeah, I was a skeptic turned major fan!
