Buy a moissanite to see how you really feel about that size and how it fits into your lifestyle (active, prone to losing things, impractical for healthcare professionals etc.) If months into it you love the size and wish for it to be a diamond, swipe that debit card and get yourself one. Personally, I prefer lab created or preowned ones for economical and ethical reasons. I would rather keep that cash for my savings to compound forever lol. I once saw and tried on (pawn shop, not as intimidating) a 4 ct mined one being sold for 9k when it is 40k + “new”. What is a “new” diamond anyway? Aren’t they million year old? How can one know that theirs has never been used? Because the jeweler says so? Just food for thought.

Personally, I don;t understand buying a moissanite if you are just going to upgrade down the road. If it fits in the budget, I would just get the diamond. You can do lab grown or used if you would rather, but it makes no sense to me to purchase a ring that you will upgrade to in a few years if you have the resources now to purchase the ring you clearly want. Go for it!

If you want a Mossinate then I would reach out to this vendor for a custom cut
If you want an oval I would again reach out to the same vendor because he has amazing ovals
I have a friend that has one of his ovals and it is an Si1 that is completely eye clean (wouldn’t guess it looking at the report) but it is stunning. This is her ring

rdtobee : id do diamond, but not just a regular “plain” diamond, a galaxy or “colored” with high transparency and lots of interesting inclusions, and probably rose cut, i think they are so cool looking, i love looking at the loose rose cut diamonds on Etsy

If you want it to look like a diamond, you need to get the diamond…as long as you have the budget. A 2-3 carat moissy is not going to look like a diamond, and I think you will be disappointed if you expect that it will.
