- Wedding: February 2011
My birthday and Valentine’s day are within a week of each other, and I had emailed my husband a few rings I really loved and wanted as a potential gift. One of them was from Moissanite Co., and that’s what I ended up recieving today. It’s not my birthday yet, but my husband wanted me to open it today.
Well, I opened it, and we were both kind of disappointed. 🙁
First of all, I’m allergic to white gold. Since I do own and wear (through the pain) a couple of WG rings, that fact kind of slipped DH’s mind and he ordered it in WG. I thought OK, no big deal, I’ll just send it back and get the same thing in palladium. However, as I kept staring and examing the stone, I realized it’s just not for me.
It sparkles like CRAZY, which I love. However, be it due to cut, size, or both, the stone just looks SO green/yellow to both myself and my husband. Keep in mind, I’m a girl who prefers warmer diamonds to colorless diamonds, and didn’t even expect the moissy to look much like a diamond, but this was just too much for me. I think that, coupled with the heart shape (which I usually love) just made this ring look too odd to me. Honestly, my heart kind of sunk when I saw it – not the reaction anyone looks for with a new piece of jewelry. Also, we had ordered a size 8.25, which is a half size bigger than my true ring size, and it feels too tight for the size it’s supposed to be, even taking the band width into consideration. Not sure what to make of that. The setting is beautiful, I will say that.
After thinking it over, both of us have come to the decision to send it back and request a refund. I do believe that I would love moissy in a round or OEC and it is a gorgeous stone, it just didn’t seem to all come together with this particular ring. Darling Husband said the company was nice to work with, and I hope everything goes smoothly with the return (my stomach is in knots about this!). I will most likely buy something from Moissanite Co. in the future, but next time will try a round cut. The sparkle is stunning, but the color in my stone was just too much.
I’m kinda bummed out by this whole thing, but not majorly. It was an awesome gesture from my husband, and we’ve chosen something else together that we both like, and it’s in 18k yellow gold so it will be comfortable for me to wear.
Here are some pics I took of the ring while debating over it with Darling Husband. It’s now back in its box ready to be shipped back ASAP.
The pictures do not really show how yellow/green it is. What do you guys think? Did anyone else feel the same way about their stone? Should I be anxious about the return process?
