Moissanite Engagement Rings

Editor’s note: We updated this post with your most recent submissions of moissanite engagement rings! Check out the top of the post for the newest real engagement rings.

This post is chock-full of all of your amazing moissanite engagement rings. Moissanite is a stone that’s gaining in popularity, and we love to see all the different styles, shapes, sizes, and colors you guys are rocking. Thanks for your submissions!

For those playing catch-up, we launched a set of ring surveys, starting with 15 different styles of engagement rings (you can find them here and at the bottom of this post, as well as on the Boards as a stickied post). All you do is fill out the survey corresponding to your ring style (round diamond, moissanite, sapphire, etc.), which will prompt you to upload your ring photo to the Weddingbee Gallery, and then once at least 10 people with that style of ring have filled out the survey, it will become a post on the Weddingbee blog!

The posts will continuously be updated to reflect new ring submissions, and eventually we hope they will be an amazing repository of REAL engagement rings to inspire bees for years to come.

Note: If you’ve filled out the survey but haven’t yet submitted a photo, it’s not too late to be included in this post! Simply email your photo along with your Weddingbee username and ring style category to mouse (at) weddingbee (dot) com, and we’ll add it to the post!

dcandohiobee‘s round forever one moissanite engagement ring set in a delicate band with inlaid diamonds, surprise diamonds in the setting, in yellow gold

Why did you or your FI choose this ring? I absolutely loved the surprise diamonds and how thin the band is. I have always wanted a moissanite because of their fire, but my fiance wanted to buy me a diamond—with this ring we got the best of both worlds because it has both!

Melissaw906‘s Tiffany style solitaire Forever One moissanite engagement ring with shared prong side stones

Why did you or your FI choose this ring? My fiancé picked my ring because he was not a fan of the micro pave diamonds that are very trendy right now. He said that they just look like glitter to him. One of the things I wanted most in my ring was that it sparkle on all three sides. The larger side stones in a U-shape shared prong setting give me the sparkle I wanted on all three sides and the larger side stones that he wanted. We went with moissanite because it is a beautiful, durable stone, and we could afford to get a larger stone at a reasonable price. I absolutely LOVE my ring, and I am so glad we went with something a little bolder instead of the dainty halo styles I was originally looking at.

geishagirl‘s petite milgrain bezel set solitaire moissanite engagement ring with scrollwork profile, set in white gold

Why did you or your FI choose this ring? My ideal engagement ring needed to be romantic, low profile, secure, and preferably with a micro halo set close to the center stone. After reading many ladies tell of losing small stones too easily, working with my hands daily as I do, I decided milgrain mimicked the look well enough to suit my needs. The “scrollwork” profile was a big plus.

lilmamasha‘s moissanite engagement ring round center stone ring surrounded by genuine diamonds in a reverse prong setting with a halo and three stone design in white gold

Why did you or your FI choose this ring? I fell in love with this ring when I first saw it on Craigslist, in an area about 500 miles from where I lived. It was a custom designed ring that was sadly never worn due to a failed relationship. The gentleman who owned the ring felt that it was time to move on and sell the ring after about five years. We were really fortunate, as he only wanted what he had paid for the ring at the time he bought it. I had a friend meet him at a jewelry store to confirm the specs, and then she was mine! I’ve been so happy ever since. ?

Why did you or your FI choose this ring? I’m very picky about jewelry because I don’t want to have to worry about damaging expensive things that I’m wearing during everyday life. It took a while to find a place that would let us set a pre-purchased moissanite into a low-profile, non-pave, round halo at a price we were willing to accept, but finally we found Sequel by Gemvara. The ring could not be more perfect for me!”

Why did you or your FI choose this ring? We viewed moissanite as “outer space’s version of a diamond” as it was originally discovered in an asteroid. The fact that it could be replicated ethically in a lab was also a bonus. I chose the halo design because I think they are eye-catching and timeless.

Robynrox47‘s cushion cut moissanite engagement ring and diamond halo in 14 karat yellow gold

Why did you or your FI choose this ring? FI allowed me to choose my own mainly because I gave him too many options. I always came back to a cushion halo, and I just loved how dainty the band is. We chose moissanite because this is both our second marriages and we wanted to buy a home. So cost wise moissanite was perfect and was also something different for this union than either of us had or purchased during our first engagement.

VintageLover32‘s OEC moissanite engagement ring in a vintage setting with diamond side stones

Where did you purchase your ring? My original engagement ring was given to me by my mom (an anniversary ring), until it got lost!

thessely‘s round brilliant Old European cut moissanite engagement ring in white gold Edwardian filigree setting

Why did you or your FI choose this ring? I heard about moissanite over the news and podcasts for a while, but didn’t give it much thought until my best friend got engaged and chose moissanite. When soon after my BF wanted me to pick out a ring, I did lots of research and sincerely informed him that YES I love it and all the reasons why, and he was completely on board. As far as the cut and setting, I could never take my eyes off the filigree choices. I looked at so many and kept coming back to them. They’re so delicate and intricate and beautifully vintage and feminine, and I love that they’re light (not heavy). I then got into debating side stones or a solitaire, and felt like solitaire was the most classic. The Old European cut was the final decision, because I hadn’t considered it until it became a choice, and I loved the vintage association and felt it looked best with the Edwardian mold and filigree.
