“Is This Going to Look Like a Diamond?”

Posted on June 24 2015

I recently guest blogged for incase you missed it...

Multiple times a day I am asked the same question, in many different forms.  “Will my in-laws be able to tell?” “Is this going to look like a diamond?” I try with the utmost patience to educate and advise without imposing my own personal opinions.  Let’s face it: I am a huge proponent of Charles & Colvard® and what they represent, and sometimes it’s hard not to shake people!  There are many reasons why I feel so strongly. Maybe you will agree, and maybe you won’t.


If you want a diamond, I can certainly provide that for you.  However, I do encourage you to consider the financial aspects of that decision. Do you really want to start off your new marriage in debt?  Don’t set yourself up for financial issues right off the bat. Or how about upgrading your original ring and having to use your child’s college fund, because that new diamond is so expensive? And that doesn’t even take the humanitarian cost into account! If I told you that new diamond could be fueling war and violence, would you still want it?

 When I do a cost comparison for customers, they can’t believe the price difference.  Yes, some want that emerald cut stone, VS clarity with H color in a diamond, but ask if I can do it for the same price as the moissanite.  No, but I can provide the same stone in a moissanite.  I even offer a 5-day viewing period for those who are skeptical.  There are tons of skeptics, but I believe this just comes from lack of understanding.


Can you tell which of these rings are moissanite and which are diamond?

Moissanite is its own gemstone – it is not a diamond.  Consumers need to stop comparing it to a diamond.  Do we compare a white topaz to a diamond?  No, we do not! Moissanite is a gemstone for people who want to step outside of the box, set new traditions for their family, and set a good example for their children.  It is a gemstone for people who want to make a smart financial decision, and wear something gorgeous, brilliant, and sparkly without supporting war and violence.

Moissanite is for me. Is it for you?

    I have 2 moissanite rings…. I was young when I got married the first time. My husband would have gone into debt to get me what I wanted but no way… I saw a moissanite and knew that’s what I wanted….it was perfect and no one could tell…. after my first husband passed away 3 years ago…. About a year and a half ago I met my second husband.. and when he asked me to pick out the ring of my dreams it was my second moissanite! ….I’ll never buy diamonds again!

    I absolutely love mine! I would have Moissanite over Diamond any day! Sparkle and brilliance is more intense.. Love, love, love! Everybody needs at least 1!

    I love Moissanite more than diamonds, that stone is exceptional and I have several and if I get an engagement ring then I hope it will be moissanite.

    I am absolutely not sure which is which, as long as it sparkles who cares! Totally agree with your thinking, why enter married life in debt? We used antique family rings which I adore, but would have definitely considered a ‘non-diamond’ if we had needed to.

  • Erin Kennedy: April 19, 2016

    I don’t care, I want them all! These rings look beautiful! I have considered a diamond like this, but haven’t fully decided.

  • Jessica Simms: April 19, 2016

    I really can’t tell the difference! I would definitely buy a bunch of these to add to my jewelry collection.

  • Melissa Bernardo: April 18, 2016

    Wow! These rings are gorgeous! I cannot tell the difference!

  • Lisa Rios: April 16, 2016

    My goodness, these rings are so beautiful & I really cant find which one is moissanite and which is a diamond. I think I would love to go with one such alternative rather than going with the same traditional & expensive diamond jewels all the time.

  • Dawn McAlexander: April 16, 2016

    I think it would definitely be for me. I am not about chunking down a lot of money on a piece of jewelry that, lets face it, I will probably lose anyway. Eek!

  • Christine - The Choosy Mommy: April 15, 2016

    I love that there are alternatives to traditional diamond rings. I can’t tell the difference, so I am sure no one else can. And really…would someone really have the guts to say to someone wearing this ring that it is fake?!? I know I wouldn’t!

  • Stephanie of The TipToe Fairy: April 15, 2016

    When I got married we chose sapphires to symbolize our birthstones as we’re both born in September. I love that I don’t have the typical diamond ring.

  • Nikki: April 15, 2016

    Wow that is so cool and amazing! I love it. Thanks for sharing!

  • Jeni Hawkins: April 14, 2016

    I love that there are alternatives to diamonds! I love diamonds, but definitely wouldn’t want to start out a marriage in more debt than we are already! Plus, it’s very pretty!

  • Liz Mays: April 14, 2016

    It’s definitely pretty! Moissanite sounds like an awesome gemstone option for all kinds of jewelry.

  • Cindy Ingalls: April 14, 2016

    A diamond is a girl’s best friend, but it is nice to know there are alternatives out there. Not everyone can afford their dream ring.

  • robin rue : April 14, 2016

    It’s not for me, but I can see why some people would like it. It’s very pretty, but I like the real thing ;)

  • Elizabeth O.: April 14, 2016

    That’s very well said, to be honest. I wouldn’t go as far as using the money for my kids’ education to get a spanking new diamond ring, that’s so impractical!
