- Wedding: October 2011
So this might be a little long winded. lol
Before me and my Fiance got engaged, we looked at diamond e-rings around our area and I absolutely fell in LOVE with one from Zales. We couldn’t afford it though, because he really didn’t have money. Now that he does have money, I was going to upgrade from my 1ct moissy, which was only $600 to a bigger moissy set, which would run btwn $1300 and $1700, depending on which one I decided to get.
So when I fell in love with the diamond e-ring, but couldn’t get it, I started researching other alternatives that would fall into his budget. That’s when I found out about moissanite and decided to go for it. Now, because I am posting this I might get slack, but I really hope I dont. I’m not posting this to say that I no longer LOVE moissanite, because I absolutely do, but the ring I fell in love with before I found out about moissy’s is SO unique, vintage, and different, and my heart just sank when I couldn’t get it because it was like I found THE ONE. Well, that ring plus a band to go with it that I have looked at will be the same price as a moissy set, and within my FI’s budget.
Here is the e-ring…
Of course I feel bad because I’m “turning my back” kind of, on moissy, but this is just one ring that I have never gotten off my mind, but never thought I’d be able to have. So now that my Fiance wants to upgrade my ring before the wedding, and this is in the budget, I might go for it. Of course, I could get a bigger moissy and it would be STUNNING, but this just screamed ME when I first tried it on, and even since then I just haven’t been able to forget about it.
So, I just had to talk about it because I really didn’t think about getting this until now. I was so set on another moissy that I didn’t think, “well, my dream ring, I wonder how much it would be?” and low and behold, it’s the same price! So that being said, I’m not sure what my “point” was to this post haha but I just wanted to share. I still love love love love moissy’s! and if I could get a moissy ring just like that one, I would, but I cant. And it is amazing, and looked wonderful on my finger. So, I might get it, I might not. We will see, and I will update too. 🙂
