    @EmJayHyphenAy:  I love your ring! I’d like something similar but even smaller – just a 1/3ct princess cut diamond on a pave band. Nothing would make me happier 🙂

    Oh no, I foresee a slight “fight” happening soon! Ladies, OP obviously didn’t mean to offend anyone,

    @BrideToBe14:  Please don’t call them “imitation” diamonds. A lot of ladies are offended when their stones are called imitation diamonds. Yes, the some are moissanites, but moissanite isn’t an imitation diamond, it’s a gem in it’s own right 🙂

    @BrandNewBride:  That reminds me of the male wedding band made out of dinosaur bones and meteorite, which I think is pretty badass.

    @esk716:  +1 monstrosity definitely has a negative connotation!! Also, the only poll option referencing upgrading mentions “hinting at it daily”…


    @EmJayHyphenAy:  Your ring is beautiful. I would not be ashamed of it.  I know this is the internet and I should have thicker skin, but the overall object of this community is to be a place where we can all exchange ideas in a friendly way so I think the wording of your post is a little off the mark! But I still want you to love Weddingbee (I see that this is your first post)

    @BrideToBe14:  Just so you know over 70% of people who buy moissanites buy them because they are moissanites, not diamonds. 

    I can make up statistics too!

    OP, your ring is beautiful!  I love the combination of the princess and round stones.


    In general, I hate to say it but I really don’t care for posts like this.  I come to this board because I am a lover of jewelry.  Moissinite, diamonds, asha, colored stones.  Rose gold, white gold, yellow gold, platinum, palladium…it doesn’t really matter to me.  I love looking at everyone’s beautiful rings, taking polls about bands and admiring all things sparkely and e-ring/WB related.  I don’t like it when people feel as thought they have to appologize for their ring or put down other people’s rings because they are big/small/halo/ect.  I think we are all entitiled to an opinion of what we want to wear on our fingers but I come here because I love looking at everyone’s rings, no matter the size.

    That doesn’t look small to me at all, I was expecting a tiny spec of a diamond or something. I definitely prefer small rings to large rings but it’s a personal preference, and I think also maybe a regional thing? I have NEVER seen anyone in real life in my city with rings the size I see all the time on the Bee, so if I had one here, I would probably be stared at! I understand they are a lot more common in the US.

    @EmJayHyphenAy:  Your ring is beautiful! Even if you do have a little ring envy, I don’t think that necessarily means that you love your own ring less. It’s nice to admire other people’s rings and I am sure that many admire yours!

    @mrsacornblue:  +1000! Yes, perfectly said.

    I think anyone who is confident in their choice does not feel the need to put down other people’s choices in any way. We all have different styles and that’s okay.

    @FutureDrAtkins:  OMG hilarious 😉

    @LeSpice:  @Lbward6:  Eh, it’s the internet. I don’t think anyone can prevent a fight on the internet if a significant enough proportion of people read a post as offensive.
