How do you know it’s fake?! I’d definitely want to know… Not because I think Fiance would buy me a fake ring, but because that would mean the jeweller was up to no good!!!!

If someone managed to spot my ring was a fake from an online photo, then I’d want to know – mostly just how they knew it was fake! But if they had some reasons for believing that, I’d want to hear them.

I’m sure some people would have a hissy fit if some random person messaged them saying their ring was fake, but if they’re a total stranger to you, then I hardly see how it impacts on you either way!

@quierajen:  In that case, I would maybe just send her a link saying “Wow! Your ring is beautiful! I fell in love with this design after seeing it at (link). Did you buy it from this website, or did you have it made somewhere?”

That way, you can check that she doesn’t know it’s CZ – some people actually don’t want big fancy engagement rings! Or she may know it’s CZ and be keeping it secret/pretending it’s a diamond. If the design is identical to hers, she can ask her fiance/jeweller about it, or she could tell you that, while the design is similar, she got her ring from somewhere else.

Good luck! Hope it all goes well! Can’t say I’m not curious to see how it pans out, but I guess you can’t really post stuff about other Bees on here 🙂

Good luck!

I don’t think seeing a similar/the same ring means hers is fake. She could have had it custom made or a jeweler might sell a non-CZ version that you can’t find online…  Good luck with that. I think you should have minded your own business.

I think you made the right decision, although it may not be necessarily be CZ, or she may have wanted CZ. Hope all goes well

I would not say a word. As unusual as the CZ might be, it is quite possible that it’s a copy of the real deal. 

Unless I was absolutely certain (i.e. knowing the designer), what is the point?

I wouldn’t say anything.

My Future Mother-In-Law is a jeweller and she said a lot of the rings on wedding forums (including WB) are either non-diamonds, or the diamond 4 C’s are not what the person is saying they are. There’s a ring on here that the bride claims is more than a carat and I showed my Future Mother-In-Law the pic (because it’s a beautiful ring!!) and she said it’s less than a carat and not the quality stated.

@pink lantern:  



Hi ladies, I would be the particular Bee in question. My ring is not at all a fake, but rather a copy. I showed Fiance a few rings I liked on a web page when we were discussing my ring tastes, but he couldn’t find one quite like them when he started shopping, so he had one made. I just didn’t realize he used a picture from the page I showed him for the design. I refound that particular page once OP messaged me, and lo and behold: it has the pic from that CZ site on it.

My ring is almost identical, yes, but I have the jeweler’s original casting mold and the pearl is just… well.. better! Definitely not from the site. All real gold and diamonds, baby. He added some really sweet personal touches and knocked my flippin’ socks off! So copied or not ( and seriously… who cares?) I’m happy!

I appreciate y’all looking out for me, so no hard feelings! Zero angst whatsoever! At ease. 😉
