mrsbarack : Yeah, what Mrs. Barack said. Shame the person for asking a rude question. They don’t know what goes on between him and you. If it’s what you want, and he agrees, then it’s fine.
I’d just add that you need to make sure he is comfortable with it. This ring is “supposed” to be a reflection upon his “successfulness.” I know it’s BS, but it’s something drilled into men that needs to be drilled OUT.

If you like the ring who cares. I think it’s increadbly rude to say that to your fiancé.

If you want your ring to look “real” you should get a smaller stone. Most people will not notice the difference. If you get a 2.5 carat ring of any kind, it’s going to attract attention as that’s out of budget for most people.
It’s similar to carrying a “chanel” purse but driving a Honda. If your lifestyle does not support your bag, people will question it.

princessandthepear : the person asked her fiancé about the ring when she wasn’t present. It seems more likely that OP and her fiancé are excited about their choice, and her fiancé shared about moissanite openly. I don’t think OP wants to fool anyone by pretending it’s a diamond, it sounds like she’s proud of her moissanite but someone else acted like a douchebag about it.

Yes I’m not trying to pass anything off as anything. This was basically to vent about the rudeness of the comment. Telling my boyfriend he’s getting me a fake ring is very insultive to him because it could make any man or woman feel insecure about the proposal process.
Also, someone carrying a Chanel purse driving a honda isn’t something that doesn’t match lol. I actually drive a Honda but have luxury bags. Someone can have a large diamond and drive a Honda or have luxury items and drive a Honda or whatever they choose. Not every aspect of someone’s life has to be expensive and “living large” ….people put their money into parts of their lives that they want to. Most people don’t live an all around life of luxury but can still have luxury items in their life. Sorry needed to add this as it’s a major misconception that if someone has 1 nice thing they automatically have to live that way in all areas of their life carowl :

princessandthepear : Agree with OP here, I have several Louis Vuitton purses/wallets and I drive a 5 year old Acura. I could afford something much more “luxurious”, but I don’t really care about cars so I don’t bother to upgrade. It’s not an all or nothing thing.
