    Yeah don’t make him go over his budget, that’s not cool. Even a 1.63ct ring has gotta be close to 10k right? I get that you like a certain look but… dang haha. 

    Emerald cut is a beautiful and classy choice in any size though!

    AMarie_ :  I’m someone who has never wanted a diamond. I remember my mom telling me about the industry and so it was never an option in my mind. I have a 7mm round Forever Brilliant that gets pretty regular looks and compliments. No one’s ever said anything distasteful to me. Even my IG gets a lot of direct messages from random people asking about cut, color, and carat of my “diamond.” I’m always happy tell them about what it actually is.

    I also have an emerald cut moissanite ๐Ÿ™‚ I have had it for almost 3 years now and it’s still in perfect condition (just as pretty as the day I got it). No one has ever asked me anything weird or said anything rude about it. If someone mistakes it for a diamond I usually explain what it is, and everyone so far as thought it was really cool! I love how budget-friendly it was ๐Ÿ™‚ 

    I have a C&C Forever Brilliant moissanite, not sure if they even make those anymore. There are lots of options nowadays!

    AMarie_ :  If anyone was so rude as to ask me if it was ‘real’ I would be gobsmacked! It passes pretty well, if that is important to you, I would say better than round brilliant moissanite. But I will say that I bought a very well cut stone from a reputable seller, so that counts for a lot. 

    I am pretty honest with people who are jewelry savvy about what my center stone is, I have no problems stating it is moissanite.
