@EffieTrinket:  So what were your plans when the Amora Gem came out? Were you always planning on keeping the setting?

If the stone bothers you this much I’d change the stone. BUT I have no experience with Wink CZ but they seem to hold up better. I personally destroy CZ’s because I have clumpsy hands and bang my rings everywhere.

So basically my answer is usless LOL

*Most of us are more critical of our own rings then others are so maybe if you post a pic we can give you a better opinion*?

I would just keep the CZ until you have money for the stone you want.  Your CZ probably doesn’t look too different from someone else’s stone that hasn’t been cleaned in a few months.  I agree with JustLove25, a pic would definitely help.

Point of order….All things look like crap in incandescent lighting…it’s a fact!  Everyone looks like they just got wheeled out of the morgue and all food looks like Play-doh, which is why we staged a coup at this office and used only table lamps until the owner, aka my Dad, got with the program and changed the lighting…yuck!  So don’t let it get to you, but if you can’t stand it, would a white sapphire be an option?

It’s not a “fake ring.” It’s a real ring with a stone you don’t care for. 🙂

I would just not worry about it; if anyone is so gauche as to say anything about it, just tell them it’s a placeholder while you’re waiting for the actual stone to come in.

@EffieTrinket:  Could you just not wear the ring for a while? I’m unclear as to how long you’re planning on wearing it before upgrading.

I love my asha and have tested it against diamonds in a number of settings (obviously I did this on the low down).  I don’t go around telling people it’s a diamond but everyone assumes and never ask.  Since I went with a cushion cut it shimmers like crazy in candlelight.  One restaurant goer even ooh’d and ahh’d at my ring in the dimlight of the restuarant as they were being seated by the hostess.  

I haven’t had a Wink but from my understanding they are good too although they may not last as long as the asha.  I know you only want this until Amora Gem comes out or until you make a differrent decision but I think the asha is pretty affordable.  

I do have several berricle rings and love them dearly but they just don’t stand up to the asha.  The asha has a lot of depth to it In My Humble Opinion and side by side you really see the difference.

@EffieTrinket:  I’m ashamed to admit that I had to Google it… super shiny though!  White sapphires are pretty cheap because the big $$ is for the colored ones, my sister’s half carat was like $167…the setting cost more that the stone, and she can upgrade to whatever whenever…it wasn’t a bank breaker, and still looks nice.

Oh and just for reference I am awaiting the arrival of the Amora Gem as well so I can replace my center.  However I still might just stick a diamond in once we get past our wedding and our first home purchase.
