Boyfriend or Best Friend and I went to a private jewelers in our hometown yesterday. We told him we would like to go with a less expensive stone for now and upgrade later. I asked about moissanite and he suggested going with a white sapphire instead since the prices are comparable. He explained that the sapphire was better quality and explained where the moissanite was originated.
I liked the idea that the sapphire was colorless. It doesn’t seem like the moissanite always is. We decided that we are going with a 1- 1.5 carat equivalent solitaire. Boyfriend or Best Friend may also decide against the sapphire and go with the wedding band as the engagement ring..but that’s for him to know and me to find out;)Any opinions? What are you ladies doing to help the money factor of a ring?
On another note. We had some very good conversation around the engagement. He finally came to terms that this is a team decision and the aspect of surprise is a bit gone since the summer proposal did not work out as he planned. Fall is my favorite season and he told me the proposal will happen in the Fall. Very excited but a little afraid of being let down since his best intentions failed in the summer..Ugh. Crossing my fingers!!
