    @BrideToBe14:  Really? People with big moissy stones are usually upfront about it because it’s obvious they are moissy. I can only think of a few people offhand with a 2+ carat Moissy. You are entitled to your opinion just not sure what the heck you are basing it off of?

    @EmJayHyphenAy:  I think your ring is beautiful and elegant 🙂 longing as it makes you happy that’s all that matters right?

    I have a sapphire e ring and I have had a few odd comments on it but most have been very nice. I like that everyone’s rungs are a bit different.

    I have a .26 carat diamond with amazing specs, and I’ve had people laugh in my face and say things like “oh, how cute”. Whatever. Some people suck. I wear it proudly, though.

    @Zhabeego:  I agree, now that I know about diamond alternatives, when I see one that’s a 2.5 or bigger, I usually assume as well that it is a beautiful diamond alternative, especially if it’s on a young girl.

    @mixtapehearts:  I don’t know many people who are upfront that their stone is a moissy. i just saw a thread today that was bee’s showing off their rings and none of them said whether it was a diamond or not.  Most don’t care to tell people, if it’s pretty it’s pretty.  They obviously don’t care if its a real diamond or not thats why they got a moissy, bc they could care less about having a real diamond.  Which honestly I almost got a moissy too for that same reason.

    @iceland_bride:  People laugh in your face about your ring?  That is terrible, those people have sad souls if they do that to you. I’m sorry that happened, but yeah some people suck.  I have had people take my diamond ring and ask to see it and hold it up close to their face to see if there are any specks or imperfections.  I am sitting there, like “how rude” and two of them were my freakin bridesmaids, LOL, GEEZ

    @iceland_bride:  Wow, people do suck.  But, while it can be hard to suffer their insults, I can’t help but look down on their shallow, materialistic priorities.  I don’t assume that everyne with a big ring is a jerk, but if they need to brag about it or feel that possessing it means they’re above  anyone with a smaller ring, they’re just silly and pretentious.

    I didn’t read monstrosity as negative even though it normally does have a negative connotation.  But to answer the poll, no, sorry, I would have been disappointed with a ring less than .75ct, but that doesn’t mean I judge anyone that does.

    No one should be ashamed of their ring whether it’s a .10 carat promise ring or a 10 carat diamond.  I’m glad that you love yours, and I’m sure I will love my upgraded 2.5+ carat blue diamond once I get the design worked out.

    @BrideToBe14:  

    @Zhabeego:  

     

    Yeah, some of those people were my fiance’s family members, while others were close friends. I’m very particular about clarity, and cut so I sacrificed size for those specifications. I picked out my own ring, and even though my fiance gave me a generous budget, I’m just the kind of person who feels bad spending an exuberant amount of money on myself. When they laughed- I just stared quietly. I wasn’t going to explain my decision process to them. They should be ashamed of themselves.

    @secretbee33:  Oooh, memorial stone rings. Those are actually really cool! I’d love to be made into one of those. Can you imagine “Well, officer, someone stole my ring! What was it made of? Welll… Grandma. It was made of Grandma.”

    I meant if someone had drilled a hole in a link of spinal column and was wearing it like a ring! That would freak me out a little.

    @joya_aspera:  Big ring, small ring – if you love it, love it! No need to call other rings “monstrocities”. The OP mentions that she suffered from the “ring envy” of bigger rings on the Bee in her original post and now she is over it. It doesn’t seem the case to me with such references still being made to bigger rings (“Monstrocity” has a very negative connotation in my view, especially when referring to someone’s e ring).

    @BrideToBe14:  I do think that moissy owners are as upfront as is reasonable to expect about the fact that their stone is a moissy. I can see how it can happen that there’s a “show me your beautiful bling” thread and people just posts pictures without saying what their gemstone is most of the time, but I feel like in that case explaining that it’s a moissy is not the point of the thread.

    Many posters do openly say that their rock is a moissy without being prompted, but this is especially the case if someone asks for more information about the rock or it’s a thread the owner of the ring has created to show it off or it’s a thread where the OP wants specifics about gemstones and not just pictures. So yeah, I do think that moissy owners are open about the fact that they own moissanite without feeling the need to explain it each and every time they post, if that makes sense.
