@deetroitwhat: I think the point is, is that there’s always going to be heated threads/topics in every Board.  If you don’t like that topic, don’t click.  Quite simple, really.  

This is a Ring board, and as such will always be a “hodge podge”.  If you find certain kinds of threads exhausting, please remember that your participation is voluntary.  

I just think that an inclusive Rings board (as it is) is beneficial overall.  

*threadjack over and out* sorry!

@cdncinnamongirl:  this thread topic doesn’t upset me, but being called a “douchebag” is not pleasant. Do you see why MrsFuzzyFace’s OP didn’t make me assume that’s what I would get to experience reading in her thread? It sure seems that any thread can become “heated” with the way things are currently set up. What exactly would be the disadvantages to stone type subforums?

I don’t think anyone should have to appologize or feel bad about getting what they want, it’s your life, do what makes you happy! People spend so much time judging others over meaningless cr*p that does not affect their lives, and I think it really weighs people down and fills minds with unneeded clutter.

Also, I don’t think that separate ring boards are the answer, as what some people consider a “simulant’ others don’t. Really, people just need to be nice and be happy that others are sharing their joy, and if someone has a problem with another person who wants an upgrade or who has nothing nice to say about someone having a $50k rock, then they shouldn’t say anything. A lot of us might disagree on what should and shouldn’t be considered expensive, a simulant, etc., but at the end of the day, if someone is happy with what they have and they are with someone that makes them happy and they are happy together and both happy with what they have picked out for a ring, then it’s all good!

@joya_aspera:  If you want to discuss this further, let’s take it to a new thread as this isn’t the point of OP’s thread and I don’t want to continue a tangent.  But, no one should ever be called names in any thread, that is totally uncalled for and shouldn’t be tolerated.

@MrsCassie:  I’m aware that people here don’t all agree on the definition of “simulant”, that’s why I suggested “natural gemstones” and “synthetic gemstones” (which could be further broken down, such as a seperate category for colored gems in each). That’s more clearly objective – it simply groups stones based on how they came into existence – and also roughly defines the territories of the “opposing camps” in these recurring arguments.

I’m not saying everyone with one of these stone types has an adversarial relationship with people with the other type – many say they don’t care, but for the recurring adversarial dynamic on this board, it could often be roughly grouped this way. Having their own space could really reduce the amount of unintentional arguments on these boards. Think about it, in life, all “rivals” tend to get along better with each other when they each have their own space, as well as shared “neutral ground”.

Anyway, not to derail the thread any further, I’ll leave it at that.

@ZoeJane:  Then why did you insert another poster’s quote – “riled up”?

Why is everyone attacking ZoeJane?

[Comment moderated for name-calling and snark]

@ZoeJane:  As for the F-word, I didn’t think you were specifically cussing anyone out, so I don’t see the problem. It would have been different if you were speaking to someone directly.

I honestly thought 1 carat was average and anything above was large.  I was a little bummed with the size of mine (.89), but the fact that its vintage and platinum made up for it (plus I have really small fingers so it doesn’t look bad).
