Re: Moissanite and Asha (manmade) diamond vs real diamonds

FELLAS. I've decided to NOT go the moissanite route. I don't want her to have to explain that it is moissanite and what moissanite is and blah blah blah whenever anyone asks the is it real question. That is the main reason. HOWEVER, I have been looking at the difference between my 3 stone ring from...

Re: Moissanite and Asha (manmade) diamond vs real diamonds

How about forgetting the ER and get a beautiful wedding ring instead? IMHO, I think it would hold much more sentimental value and would cause much less stress for you since you are freaking out over the cost of the ring and you already have a ring in hand! Diamond vs. fake vs. cost vs. size vs. upgr...

Getting engaged should not be this stressful! We got engaged without a ring and then found one together....much easier!

Re: Death...do you think about it at all

I believe that the actual moment of death will be like going to sleep and I won't feel a thing. Up until then, I'm going through hell on a daily basis...dealing with SLE Lupus.

Are you afraid of needles?

I used to be deathly afraid of needles and would almost faint every time I had to get a shot at the doctor's office. Now, I have to give myself insulin shots every day and go for blood tests all of the time...I'm rarely feeling them any longer. My veins are drying up due to my SLE Lupus and steroids...

This diamond is from James Allen and has a GIA cert.

I wonder if I can order the setting directly from Sholdt and have my local jeweler set the stone?
