heputaringonit :  I also hate the lying. 

But OP, you talk about the thought that counts and not bashing others but you talk about how it’s dumb to pay over 800 for a ring…there’s a huge disconnect there.

LadyJDAG :  Great attitudes. And I don’t mean it as a “pat on the back” sort of way but a serious- “that’s a great way to look at it” way. 

I find myself in a unique situation where I really do get judged by my clients (I own a software firm with my fiance) and our engagment ring was as much of a business decision as it was a personal one. This works for us. It does not work for most people.

I keep saying this: do what’s right for you, and you’ll be happier for it.

I always laugh when people say it’s for money reasons. You can easily get a small diamond, no diamond, etc, but instead they spend more to get a stone that LOOKS like they spent 10x as much. People need to own their own feelings. Why are you judging someone else for spending money, but are still drawn to the same thing? Why are you trying to say you aren’t falling for the ‘trap’ of the diamond industry, but buy something designed to impersonate one? Someone mentioned insecurity as a reason people don’t like sims- I think it’s the other way. Someone who was comfortable with their $, opinions, values etc wouldn’t try to pass off something else.

I wouldn’t say anything to someone irl but on here if people ask for opinions related to sims I freely give it. I

illyana :  not trolling at all. You spewed a  bunch of negativity about diamonds but label it “trolling”when similar facts are applied to simulants. Everyone is entitled to an opinion even if you don’t agree. . Threatening to report someone is silly.

I have no strong opinions on what stones people get for their e-rings. I don’t care about insulting or judging people who choose diamonds or sapphires or moissanites or a pebble they found on the ground. I also don’t care about making assumptions about how much money they spent or whether or not they could afford it or if they bought it to impress other people.

If someone had a simulant and tried to pass it off as a diamond, I’d just feel sorry for them because they are obviously insecure, and they shouldn’t be. Maybe if people would get off their case, they wouldn’t feel pressured to lie to begin with.

How about people just like what they like and spend their money on what they like, and everyone else can mind their own business?

Personally I don’t really get why people care so much who has what, okay yeah the lying to your face about it would suck but other than that who cares if it’s a real diamond, a moissi, a sapphire, a cz or anything else they have on their ring. It’s their ring and it’s their choice. If they want a giant moissanite compared to a small diamond, who cares. People seriously need to calm down over other people’s rings.

mrstodd2bee :  these stimulants are pretend diamonds. Seriously, the primary reason people buy them is to pass them off as diamonds. Then they get upset if someone would dare ask them if it’s real? They know full well that 90% of the population aren’t going to ask & they’re kind of banking on that. 

Why do you think it’s rude for someone to ask you if it’s real if you aren’t trying to pass it off as a diamond? If I’m wearing my diamond & someone asks if it’s real, I don’t get offended… because it is. Though, honestly, if we want to play the offended card, it would probably be more offensive if they thought my real diamond were a fake.
