So I’ve been married 4 months, engaged a before that for over a year and a half…when my husband originally proposed, he presented me with a blinged out diamond ring (we never discussed rings or went ring shopping). I LIke my ring but never have loved it. It’s just not my style, I prefer thin dainty bands and the band is super thick with diaminds everywhere. don’t get me wrong, I love that my hubby got me a nice ring, BUT I just want something more my style.
before I came to the bee, I had never heard of moissanite. Even reading about it I was very skeptical because it looked like a diamond but wasn’t a diamond….well after tons of research I decided I wanted one because of the sparkle and the size I could get for the price. Then I came across the amora gem and now I am obsessed and totally want one, but I am impatient.
so, should I get the amora mossanite or hold off until the amora gem?

Let me see if I can follow your post. Your unhappy with your current bling ring, and you want something thinner.
And you want to consider Moissanite because you can get something bigger.
Do you mean that you don’t like your ring because its blinged out and the center stone is too small for your liking so you want a moissanite replacement so you can get a dainty band with a bigger stone?
If I were your FI I would be upset that you want to change everything about your ring especially since you never really mentioned it before.
Do you think he would be receptive to the idea? If so then go for it. if not learn to love yours you have already worn it for two years anyway. Make sure you talk to him before doing anything.
As far as Amora and Amora gem, I know bees were saying the Amora ones are selling out quick except for the smaller and bigger ends of the scale and that the Amora gem is still in some patent battle and can’t be shipped to the US but can be shipped to other countries if you feel you’d like to go that route.

Talk to your husband before you get your heart set on anything.

@GypsyLove: what does your current ring look like and what style did you have in mind??
if it’s just that you prefer a thinner band, can’t you just reset your current diamond into a new setting? that way your husband won’t feel as offended and you will be happier.
why would you want to change your diamond ring into amora? it’s usually the other way around.

This is a hard one, because it’s so important that you love your ring (you are going to be wearing it forever!) but it’s also important that your husband knows that it’s the symbolism of it that really matters to you. I agree with pp, talk to your husband and see how he feels. Could you maybe wear it or another ring more to your likeing as a rhr? Or get one for an anniversary ring?

It’s a hard one like PP’s have said. You should love your ring, but a ring literally symbolises your marriage, and the idea of changing it for a new one freaks me out a bit (though it depends on your thoughts)
Can you try and suggest to DH that you want another ring for your anniversary which you can wear on the other hand, or do you really want to stop wearing the ring you have?

the OP never said her husband was against the idea so I’m not automatically going to assume that she hasn’t discussed this with him. I was in a very similar situation and my husband and I had been open about this topic for two years before we decided to go ahead and make the changes.
I don’t know much about the amora gem, however a few weeks ago I ordered a .75 amora Moissanite loose stone that we then put into my existing setting and we both love the outcome!! My ring is finally my dream ring and I catch myself staring at it all the time Because it is so sparkly. It is very white and looks nice sitting next to the diamonds in my band.
I would recommend ordering a stone to see how you like it. You may end up loving it and not needing to wait for the gem. Good luck!

Maybe you could suggest an anniversary ring instead of just flat-out replacing your e-ring.

I would suggest waiting for the amora gem, it looks amazing and I am so sure it would be worth it. Plus, if you wait for it to be sold in the US it could be as late at 2015/2016, so your upgrade could be an anniversary gift! That’s what I do when I want a new ring, I tell DH it’s not an upgrade but an annivrsary ring. Works for me..lol

My husband is totally cool with it (:
the reason I don’t like my center stone is because its a cluster, otherwise I would have it reset.
i would love a big rock, but we both have new cars, & own oouthouse, also we are havying a baby in April. Yes, I do want a different style with a thin band.
since I don’t see a huge diamond in my near future, I’m considering amora mossanite or the amora gem, I was just wanting some advice on which to go with. I will try to find a picture of my ring.

Love the idea about the anniversary ring!!! My hubby doesn’t seem to care much about being attached to the ring…if he decided he wanted a different style, I would understand, as long as he still wanted to wear one….upgrade our rings…yes, upgrade each other..NO! Lol

With my sapphire eternity bands I don’t wear all the time
