charlllpop:  exactly. I don’t understand the fuss. I personally WANT a CZ ring and keep arguing with Fiance over it (we’re engaged just don’t have a ring yet). He wants to spend a lot, I’m stressed about bills and can’t logically be ok with spending thousands on a ring when we have debt that could be paid OFF with the money he wants to use for a ring. So we came to a compromise. 

But it’s to each their own. Why do those with real diamonds have to put down other diamonds? Or non diamonds? Why do those without have to rationalize? It’s like some people want a car, some want a truck. Some want a jp wedding some want a big church wedding with 500+ guests. Some want a house to own, some want to rent. Some want to live in the city, some the country. Some want a dog, some want a cat. IT’S TO EACH THEIR OWN.

wow, I’m happy that you love your CZ… But when my husband looked for my ring, he educated himself about everything (cuts, carat, PRICING, and how to get an ethically sourced diamond) to get me the best that he could afford. He didn’t pay $$$, but he saved what he could before he went to grad school and immediately started telling me what each line on the certificate of authenticity meant. It’s not that hard to find out about rings online…

Ladies (and gents) could we please just grow up a little here? Is it really changing your life if some guy thought his ring was a diamond and wrote about it then changed his story later on? It’s not like this fellow is your family or someone you deal with every day at work. He’s just posting about his engagement ring. Off the cuff comments about diamonds don’t make your diamonds sparkle any less and it doesn’t mean he has sour grapes about not having a diamond. This whole thread, which started off warming the cockles of my heart, has turned into a mean girls spat. 

Chill your tits/ pecks, please

MeandMyLouboutins:  I agree. The couple of threads I started about my ring, I just talked about my ring. I didn’t feel the need to throw jabs at other choices, it’s not relevant.

It’s nice that OP is happy with the ring but my concern is over his lack of understanding regarding his purchase.

Saying that it’s a 5 ct diamond on a “Show me big bling” thread is spreading misinformation. Then add, “my choice is the best choice and others are walking around with blood diamonds” after trying to pass his own stone as said “blood diamond” is a bit confusing. All I’m curious about is if his husband lied to him or if he knew it all along and was lying to us. It’s about transparency.

FutureDrAtkins:  To be fair, OP didn’t say anything about blood diamonds or even really mention diamonds in his post. That was someone else on their high horse.

The rest of this is hilarious and I’m not sure why some people get so angry about ROCKS.

ClaudiaKishi:  The OP mentioned “blood jewelry” in response to another post that was actually supportive of him, but did mention bodily harm that may occur when mining diamonds. So, both were unwarranted and his response was actually conflicting of him initially wanting a diamond. I think what’s really causing people to be like wtf is the bait and switch. He initially claimed he had a 5 carat diamond, but since it’s not a diamond, now his husband wouldn’t dare buy him “blood jewelry” and he’s proud to have a CZ.

ClaudiaKishi:  He did mention blood diamonds, which is why I find it so ironic and interesting that he was trying to pass his as a 5 ct diamond. 

Not getting my panties in a twist over it, just think it’s a curious thing to say… 😉 Afterall, I myself have a simulant… but want to eventually replace it with a diamond.

FutureDrAtkins:  I stand corrected! I’ll admit I read this super fast in case it got deleted while I was in the middle of it  

That takes this whole thing to a whole other level.

I seriously don’t understand why people care about this stuff. If you want a sim, get a sim. If you want a diamond, get a diamond. If someone insults your sim, let them get on with it. If someone insults your diamond, let them get on with it. 

I don’t understand what can be achieved by arguing with a load of strangers on the internet about it.

pbubs:  Yupp I agree with you. Everytime theres a ring thread, some people love to tear the OP’s to shreads. So silly IMO. Let him be happy with his ring, he only started this thread in the first place to show his excitement and love for his ring. Stop taking that “blood jewelry” comment so seriously. I have a diamond and that didnt offend me at all…
