I never said I assumed anyone was staring at my ring from across a table!!! It was a simple point I was trying to make that unless your examining and up close it is not obvious to ANYONE that it’s not a diamond! I do love my MOISSANITE as I have a diamond and am not trying to pass it off as one I just disagree with rude comments such as milky or plastic-y…. which my ring looks like neither….but thanks for the back handed remark.  It’s comments like that I don’t understand because they are just plain rude. As we are all taught if you don’t have anything nice to say don’t say anything….

I don’t think your ring looks anything like a diamond, I’m sure some people can’t tell the difference though but you can’t just tell someone that NO ONE can tell the difference when that’s not true at all. Some people can tell, some people can’t. 

Your ring is pretty, but it doesn’t look like a diamond and I’m not jsut saying that to be rude, at all. Maybe it;s just the picture, I’m not sure.

Bee, the only opinion that matters is yours. So if you love it who cares what she thinks, you’re the one who has to wear it. That being said I have a moissy 3 carat equivalent oval cut and it doesn’t look like this. I’ll try to figure out how to upload a picture later. Mine is a C&C forever brillant

bakerbee09 :  I guess the real question here is what you want… you gave up a 1.3ct round diamond for a 1.5 oval moissanite for what? More finger coverage? more sparkle? the shape?

If you wanted a diamond stick to a diamond. MOST people who don’t know moissanite will assume it is a diamond as long as the wearer’s lifestyle fits the assumed cost. But I’d say some people who know of moissanite WILL be able to tell the difference.

I too feel like I can usually spot moissanite IRL. Pictures are hard b/c the performance is usually what gives it away to me rather than facets

erinebee1 :  I can tell the difference in real life. I played around with stones at a jeweler at picked right every time. Not sure what is wrong with knowing the difference or stating the difference… if someone is secure with their choice they shouldn’t be offended when the differences are pointed out

erinebee1 :  And if you will note I never said milky or plasticky ever on any thread. I said the faceting was different and the color which is very often a bit green, even in the enhanced. My remark about the table was meant to illustrate that I wouldn’t be looking at someone’s ring across a restaurant trying to figure it out. I might think, oh sparkly ring I’d like to get a closer look. And when I got a closer look I’d think pretty ring, moissy. And that this person is obviously good with money, and smart. That is all I have ever said about people who have moissanite. Find the rudeness in that. 

You don’t get to insult me for offering a very measured response and then say oh, agree to disagree but you’re a rude bitch. I may have many flaws but rudeness is not one of them.

OP my apologies for derailing the thread. The ring is beautiful. It’s not your friend’s ring,  it’s yours. Enjoy it.

erinebee1 :  Wow, aren’t you the defensive one.

Milky and plastic-y are adjetives that I and several other posters have used to descrive moissanites.  I don’t see why you care.  That’s how *I* see them.  I was completely on board with getting a moissy to save my husband some money until we saw them in person and changed our minds.  Why is that a crime and how is that rude?

Again, if you love your ring then why do you need to defend it and say we’re all rude and wrong?  Why is it so hard to accept that people have a different opinion about moissanite than you do?

Okay I’m so confused why you all are coming at me so aggressively, it’s a ring not a crisis. It’s great you don’t think my ring looks like a diamond ITS NOT! I just don’t understand why the rudeness I am not being rude and this thread isn’t about my ring I only offered my opinion and got hated on for it and then tried to make a point….which clearly wasn’t understood. I don’t care what you think of my ring but i didn’t deserve all this hate! Sunburn- I never called you a rude bitch either I only said your being rude with your comments. I guess this is what happens when people have different opinions on here?! 

 

OP your ring is gorgeous and make the decision for you and only you no matter what other commenters say!

I think your ring is BEAUTIFUL!! I love your stone sooo much. Are you going for a diamond look? If so, I’d say yeah go with a different cut only because I think the oval moissys in the brilliant cut are the only ones that are really obviously not a diamond. If you don’t care about having a diamond look keep it bc it’s beautiful. Also, if you really do want a diamond look but want to stick with a moissanite I’d recommend a round shape as I think they look the most diamond like and in my opinion are really reallllyyy hard to tell from diamonds in every day lighting (ie not a jewelry store) bakerbee09 :

It’s obviously harder for you to accept it because you won’t stop commenting about your opinion of them!!! Let it go!!! sunnierdaysahead2 :
