    Yes, easy-peasy! It's so obvious

    Nope, I think they're both beautiful and can't tell

    I’m raising my hand.

    Do I notice people’s rings, or cars, or shoes, or purses, or sunglasses, or suits, or cellphones, or anything else on them for the sole purpose of estimating their disposable income? No. But people (including me) draw all kinds of conclusions from the actions of others, and watching someone display signs of wealth alongside noticeable signs of poverty brings an element of judgment or speculation or discernment or whatever other word you care to use.

    It’s relatively innate to notice others and their displays of prowess. It’s not personal and it’s not punative. Well, at least not when it comes from me.

    Just my $0.02.

    Bees here like to claim they can spot the difference a mile away, but when someone posts a “guess what stone this is?” thread the results say otherwise 😉

    No one in real life will know or care.  We couldn’t afford my ring in a diamond, I don’t get questions about it.  It’s not the big deal some people on here make it out to be.

    When I was married to my first husband I lost a beautiful .76 g color vs1 solitaire. I replaced it with a moissanie solitaire that I had for about 15 years.  I never tried to pass it off as a diamond but nobody ever asked.  For 15 years not one person ever asked or questioned  it.  If it weren’t for the fact we were using family diamonds with my new husband I absolutely would have gone with moissanite again.

    Because people don’t ASK, , does not mean they don’t know. . .

    The average person can not tell the difference between a diamond and a moissanite.
