@anonbridetobee:  Okay well I hate to break it to you but all that stuff says is that it’s a well-cut CZ.

An engagement ring is just simply an engagement ring. It should make no difference if it was a diamond, moissanite, gem stone etc and therefore you don’t owe her any explanation. It’s a symbol of your love and that’s all that she needs to know.

On another note (not that it should matter) but i went into a secrets shhh store once and was told that their stones are cz?

@anonbridetobee:  All that matters is that you love it. No need to be ashamed. When I told everyone o was getting a sapphire, all people could talk about was mutual friends apparently gorgeous quartz ring.

It says on their website that the stones are created from zirconium oxide, which = cubic zirconia. Not that it matters, or that it’s anyone’s business.

Moissanite is available in Australia. I have been to a few places in Sydney that sell it.

Cold they be Asha stones? If s0, just call it a diamond hybrid and move on 🙂 Tell her it seemed like the best of both worlds. Or, it is a Signity CZ, which are really, really well cut CZ’a and look amazing from what I have seen (I have 2 and they look really good, albeit a  bit white for my taste}. Either way, come clean…or dont – lol. Its none of her business. I guess it depends on your relationshp with her. Would love for you to post pictures 🙂

I think your friend needs to love her ring and stop obsessing about getting one like yours, but the nice thing to do might be to tell her the truth, so she can stop bothering you about it and maybe learn to either love what she has.

Also, double halos do exist. A lot of people have them (on the internet anyway), it doesn’t mean your ring is automatically a diamond alternative, or that you got it from one particular store.

I was looking around that webiste (I cant just pass by a link to jewelery!) and they have a ring that is identical to my diamond ring, theirs is a higher carat weight but still..

I hope she was joking when she mentioned she would get a ring JUST LIKE YOURS.

 

That’s a real bitch thing to do.

@anonbridetobee:  Wow, that is a tricky problem. I agree that you totally do not owe anyone an explanation. If I were you, I would just ignore it and don’t mention what it is or isn’t. She won’t now that it’s a moissanite and she doesn’t need to! If she keeps mentioning that ring she found, tell her that you can pass her the name of your jeweler who can custom make that ring for her with diamond. (That way she’ll assume that yours is diamond but you won’t be lying and saying outright that yours IS diamond in case she ever does find out). HOPEFULLY she will just let it go and be mature/nice! Also, if it’s such a unique setting, it probably won’t become hugely popular so don’t worry about it! This will pass and no one will remember.. 🙂

I don’t think it’s anyone’s business what you do/don’t have, nor are you obligated to tell her. I think it gets sticky when you start creating lies though. Simply tell her you’re not comfortable discussing those sorts of things.

OP, I think you’ve dug yourself a hole here. It’s your ring, and you can tell her what you want, but I don’t condone lying to your friends. If she brings it up again, I would just try and change the subject.
