We were going to go with a non-diamond, but he proposed with his great grandmother’s diamond ring.

I didn’t want yellow gold or a diamond. I didn’t think I liked either. The ring is a diamond solitaire with a yellow gold band. As soon as he opened the box, I absolutely fell in love with it. It was completely opposite from what I thought I’d want, but when I saw it, I knew it was perfect.

Basically, I can’t see how you’ll regret it. It will be a token of your engagement to the man you love, which will make it the perfect ring πŸ™‚

If you are having doubts about how you’ll feel in the long run, go for the diamond! It doesn’t have to be extravagant. Then get the gemstone as a right hand ring.

I would have regretted not asking for a diamond. Why? Because, like every other stone on the planet, a diamond has a unique look that can’t be replicated…to me…at least not yet. So, now I have a diamond and I don’t regret what we’ve purchased but we’ll be upgrading to the Amora Gem once that hits the U.S. market. I also bought a lab sapphire ring so I can have my pop of color from time to time.

The point is – if you want a diamond, get a diamond. Don’t try to overthink it. If you feel like you’ll regret not going for it then just do it. πŸ™‚ But if you’ll regret not getting a gemstone then do that. Either way, this doesn’t have to be the last ring you ever own. πŸ™‚

@Kat:  Ouch, are you sure she meant it in a mean kinda way? I thought moissies were known for shooting lots of pretty colors.

@canarydiamond:  Indeed. If the wearer says her stone is not intended to be a diamond simulant, I don’t see how it’s an insult to say that it’s green toned.

@canarydiamond:  I think that’s about as likely as somebody saying they can see an inclusion in your diamond and you taking it as a compliment.

Green in moissanite is to inclusions in diamonds. They are basically NEVER cited as positive attributes.

@Kat:  I just figured maybe she noticed the green since the original post was about prasiolite and they’re green stones so she was thinking along those lines.

I am curious to see a moissy in person I have to say! I love all things that sparkle πŸ™‚

@Kat:  In my view, you were the one rude to her.
