Yes. As long as it’s high quality and set in a well-made setting. Lots of people in my country will never be able to afford any naturally-ocurring diamond, especially young couples with starter jobs. So I’m grateful for everything I have here. 😀

The ring I currently wear is a CZ. The ring he proposed with is beautiful and is a blue topaz with diamonds on the side, but the center stone fell out twice. I have a pretty rough and tumble job so we opted for a cheaper ring until I’m done with school and hopefully not getting assaulted at work. People compliment my ring all the time and have no idea that it is a cz.

Provided that I could get a beatiful setting that I loved, I would have been happy to accept a CZ. Moissanites are lovely and durable, but can be rarer and more expensive than diamonds. If you get the rightoverall look, nobody will know you have a CZ, IMO. My mom is a jewellery hoarder and I’ve had the opportunity to compare.
The “tradition” of buying diamond engagement rings was created by a cartel. Diamonds are not rare stones. Why scrimp, save and sweat it when you can spend that money on something equally enjoyable? That’s just my opinion. But what’s important is what makes you happy.
I love my diamond ring and admire it daily. The fire and light i see in it is dazzling. But it was very difficult for my Fiance to fund it, even though it’s of a modest size. Sometimes I get upset thinking about the stress, work and money that my guy put into buying it. And the retailer got the sizing slightly wrong, won’t/can’t fix it, and outsources sizing to foreign workers.
