    I would never lie.  Lying is way worse than wearing fake jewelry.

    I’d say what the stones really aware but I probably wouldn’t use the word fake.

    @justhangingout:  I don’t see anything wrong with what you did. I sometimes am too honest for my own good lol.

    I dunno, depends on the situation. I say what you did is better than lying. Since she brought out the word ‘diamond’ it makes sense that you corrected her, right?

    If she simply said ‘I love your rings’ then I probably wouldn’t go into a whole spiel about how they’re CZ. Then again, I might show off a good bargain so might have gone into the spiel anyway!!

    I wear a mix of real and fake stuff and love it all.

    I’d never compromise on an engagement ring… diamonds all the way for me. But for other stuff, why not.

    I would have told her pretty much what you said

    I would have done the same!  I’m the worst with acting like my things are expensive – I brag about deals I’ve gotten all the time.  I think it is nice to tell people where you got things if they like them, and how much they were sometimes even.

    How is it fake? It’s a real ring, it just isn’t a diamond! It’s only fake if you try to pass it off as something it isn’t. Would you tell someone that a white sapphire was fake, or a moissanite?

    Sure, a lot of people might use CZ as a stand-in for diamonds, but that doesn’t mean they can’t  be used a jewellery in their own right.

    This type of situation is one of the biggest reasons why I don’t wear CZ in the first place. It seems like at some point someone is going to be bothered by it! πŸ˜›

    If you are comfortable sharing by all means do so. There is no reason why sharing with someone who was interested (and may want to purchase a similar item) is inappropriate. The only reason I would see someone reacting like your friend did is if they are purposely trying to fool someone into thinking that their CZ is a real diamond…which you obviously weren’t trying to do.

    I think you can do whatever the heck you want, honestly. I don’t think it matters if someone thinks a cz is a diamond or not. If that’s their biggest issue (someone lying or omitting details about their jewelery) then they should count their blessings. Do what you feel comfortable with.

    For the record, that’s not a fake ring. I can plainly see it with my two eyes.

    My e-ring has a CZ in it. I generally just say “thank you” when someone compliments my ring. Mostly because I don’t want them to feel sorry for me, and it would be too long to explain the truth–the whole thing about this stone coming in the ring when we got it from Robbins Brothers, and we left it in there because we thought Amora Gem would win its patent war, and then it didnt so now we are kind of in limbo and dont want to buy a temporary stone etc etc etc. I’ve never met anyone here (Oklahoma, not the Bee!) that didn’t choose a diamond, no matter how small, so I am not sure they’d even believe me if I told them I chose to do it this way.

    If she asked where I got costume jewelry, I’d straight up say Claires or Berricle, because to me jewelry is jewery, whether it came from Graff or a coin machine.

    It’s not “fake”. It’s obviously a very real ring πŸ˜‰

    But seriously. It’s a pretty ring. Who cares what it’s made out of?

    with my friends and family, I’m very upfront about my moissanite and CZ jewelry. I don’t want them to think I’m dripping in diamonds and spoiled. 

    if a stranger compliments me, I usually just say thanks and leave it at that. but that’s because I don’t feel like starting a conversation about it.
