Great fun reading your blog. Thanks for taking time to write it
I hadn't planned to read this at first, then thought what the hell. Great info and really does tell a story most don't know about diamonds.
The pictures I've seen of Moissanite are pretty convincing ....
not a huge fan of this page long advertisement, however, i think the diamond industry, and in fact the whole wedding industry has some serious problems. anything that keeps people from getting MORE in debt is good, and not funding wars is also a good thing. ;)
I like beautiful diamonds, whoever gave me this would be??
What happens if you breathe on it?
This website is obviously trying to sell a product, while saying that the point of the website is to do no such thing. Why lie? The information is a bunch of crap, too. I hope there aren't too many men out there taking this seriously.
So what? I like sparkly shit and I hate the idea of diamonds.
I like this! I like this! I like this!
I love this! I love this! I love this!
ok, if you know me at all, you will know that I can stand from the rooftops and mountain tops and scream this msg.
EVEN IF moissanite is expensive or man-made or what ever.... diamonds are mined with the blood and bones of poor people and even slaves.
I'd choose the moissanite every time.
Sometimes people pay more for items of an inferior quality because of a perceived superiority. More at 11.
so yeah, Ive never liked dimonds but this might as well be an ad for moissanite. I dont care if the author says he doesnt work for anyone producing that. It still sounds like it. I've been critical when it goes to dimonds since i heard about blood dimonds - but even before i never understood what the fuzz is about. If you really need something sparkly on your engagement ring or any oter jewlery - how about zirconia? no one's gonna see the difference anyway...
This is fantastic information! If I ever trick a man into marrying me, he'll be buying a moissanite ring.
Interesting essay. I agree that diamonds are way over-rated. Who would walk up to your fiance and say "is it real?" Well, the answer is YES, my love is real and the "rock" is real.
I've always loved moissanite. I saw it on TV once, and was like, "Holy shit, that's the prettiest diamond ever!" Then they informed me it wasn't a diamond, and in fact cost a tenth of the price. I seriously, seriously hate the diamond industry. It's the most boring gem...thing... ever, and it's the most expensive. LAMESAUCE.
Just because moissonite is better, doesn't mean diamonds absolutely suck.
