You’ll NEVER get what your Fiance spent on your diamond back. Nothing close. You may get a fraction of it back if you sold but certainly not enough to justify selling a diamond to buy a moissy. They’re gorgeous, but it’s a little late unless you wanted to put a moissy into another piece or get a moissy wedding band.

I feel the same way and I don’t have a diamond yet! I want a Moissy so badly, but my SO is pretty set on a diamond, so I know I won’t get one. So I’m saving up to buy myself one as a right hand ring, probably in pink. 

But man that moissy teases me!

@GelaMac:  I’ve tried! He’s pretty set on A)picking out the ring so it’s a gift from him, not something that I picked out that he bought me and B) is a real diamond. Even though I don’t really care about it being a diamond, it matters to him, so I’m letting him get the diamond if that’s what he wants, and i’ll eventually upgrade to a giant moissy.

@MissKemo:  That was my plan as well, to wear it as a stand in, but if I get a moissy, I’m getting a 2 or 3k stone, and it will probably end up being more flashy then my diamond! Which is why I’ll get it colored lol, because he’d be mad as well!

@MissKemo:  Absolutely identical. There’s really no huge perceptible differences. The biggest thing is the way that it sparkles (moissys glitter and diamonds flash) but even then, especially given how small the stones would be in a wedding band, you’d never know they were different stones. I would totally go for it. I already bought a wedding band but we’re planning on getting a moissy 5-stone for an anniversary. You should absolutely get one. 🙂
