Umm, I would think you should talk to your Fiance about that one first :). He might have some concerns since I’m assuming he bought the first one. 

As far as simulated stones go, there’s totally nothing wrong with that! I looked at them, but they don’t seem to come in as small a size as diamonds do, which is what I wanted (1/3 carat).

I would not wear a larger simulated diamond and tuck my real one away.

I’d actually be very surprised if he DIDN’T notice you swapped out the ring you gave him for something bigger on a different sized band… If he picked it out or had any input on it, I’m sure he knows what it looks like.

I thought about it, if I was traveling or something, to maybe get a simulated diamond to wear so I wouldn’t have to worry about the real one.

But in your situation, no.

i would have no problem at all wearing a fake diamond,  but if i had the real thing,  then why bother?

if you want something a bit chunkier,  why not get a ring wrap?   that way you get to keep the same ring.

I don’t think the simulated stone is the issue here… I think you should discuss any changes made to the ring he got you with him before just going ahead and changing it.

To answer your post question: Yes. Infact, I will never buy a diamond again. No point.

That’s like lying about anything else to your fiance. Yes, it’s wrong. Man oh man what if he’s proud of what he purchased and spent a long time picking it out? And to answer the post question, no.

1 carat is a pretty nice size…I can’t see that getting lost on your finger.  Can you buy like a guard or something to make it stand out more?  Something that adds diamonds or other jewels?  I don’t know what kind of setting you have (don’t know all the jewelry lingo), but maybe that’s an option?

I would not wear the 2 carat fake…seems…well, fake.  The ring your fiance bought you is what was given in love with a promise and I think you should be proud to wear it on your finger.

No. I would rather have the REAL thing for everything I have. I don’t prefer knock offs for handbags either. I would rather go without.  I’m the kind of person that would always look at my ring wishing it was “real”. I feel the same about cluster rings. I would always look at it wishing it was the real size. I think mine is an unpopular opinon on here because moissanite is popular, but you did ask what would I do. No way I’d swap out real for fake for size.

I would totally wear a sim.  For me it is less like wearing a knock-off handbag and more like getting a fake tan or hair extensions.  It looks the same, and it isn’t hurting anybody! 

In your situation, I would definitely let your fiance in on it before you start wearing it.  Maybe buy it, and then show it to him.  Just so that there are no hard feelings if he does happen to notice.

don’t deceive your Fiance. whatever you decide to do, tell him first. he got you that ring, it is definitely not nice to hide it away and not tell him!

also, you get what you pay for. if it is so cheap, then is it low quality? you might grow to not like the ring over time if you know tht it is low quality.  if you love your diamond but don’t like the setting, I really think it’s worth the money to reset it. 

I can’t tell you how many times I bought the cheap version of something, and then ended up regretting it and a year later ended up buying the more expensive verision. so in the long run, I wasted money!
