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.

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.
