I wouldn’t lie a say it was if it wasn’t, but I might do what you did and say you didn’t know what it was.

Personally, if my ring was fake and someone asked if it was fake…I would fib and say it was real.  Whose business is it anyways!?!?!  That said, I can’t imagine anyone asking "is it real" in response to seeing an e-ring.

I wouldn’t offer it up as a conversation topic but I think I’d be honest about it. Good question!

I love your answer! I think it answers the question without answering the question…hope that made sense.  I feel like people are a little rude when they ask questions like that, and your response kind of stops that line of conversation!

Well, I have a real engagement ring, but fake cz studs, which are pretty large. Because my ering is pretty big, people just assume my earrings are as well. I can’t ever lie, so if somebody says they’re pretty, etc. I usually confess! I’ve only let one or two people think that they were real too and they were bitchy woman who’s husbands work with my husband.

I overheard one later telling her husband that she needed new earrings because mine were so big and I was so much younger! HA!

Well, as my grandmother would say – "wear real and fake and keep them guessing."  She was a true diamond gal, and I now wear her engagement ring which is so huge most people think it is fake…  whatev – it is a rude question to ask 😛

seriously sometimes i think people are just plain rude when they ask these questions, frankly its none of their business whether its real or not.

 

i would say: "why if it is are you goin to try to steal it? if thats the case i better be careful around you" and laugh and walk away. lol

 

seriously some people just don’t know when to mind their own business

I don’t know what I would say…I guess it would depend on why I had a "fake" diamond.  If it were by my own choice (like a political stance against diamonds) then I would probably admit it openly.  If not, then I might feel more apt to declare it "real". 

But I actually collect gemstones of all kinds: expensive, rare, inexpensive, common.  I collect them from all over the place. Some are already set into jewelry, others are loose stones that I have set.  People ask me all the time "are they real?"  But I wonder if they know what they are even asking.  Yes, all my pieces are real – real sapphire, topaz, amethyst, quartz, citrine, morganite, emerald, diamonds, etc.  But Moissanite, for instance, or CZ,  is also a "real" stone with a luster and shine all its own despite that fact that it is not a diamond.   Just my deep thought for the day…

Oh heck no! If anyone actually asked, I would totally lie and say they were real! Let people assume what they want.

I would definitely not tell anyone it’s fake…it’s none of their business, anyway. =) Let them gawk if they want!
