A few months ago Forever Moissanite reached out to me to let me know about their Affiliate program. This is where a blogger like me will promote a product in exchange for a commission, if someone makes a purchase from a link on their blog. I took a look at their website, their ring designs, and their reviews and quickly decided that this was a company I could partner with.
However, I shared with Forever Moissanite that I thought I could promote their product better if I got my hands on an actual ring. I’ve seen Moissanite many times in person. I know it’s stunning, have recommended it for years to my brides and clients, and my twin sister even has a Moissanite Engagement ring. However, I’ve never had one of my own that I could show off and experience for myself.
You see, I got married over a decade ago, and back then, the conflict in the diamond industry was not as well know as it is now. Moissanite was also extremely new, and didn’t have the credibility it does today. If you’re still on the fence about Moissanite vs. Diamond for your engagement ring, check out my blog ALL ABOUT MOISSANITE for a ton of great info and resources. It’s a personal decision to choose Moissanite over a traditional mined Diamond. So, before I would recommend shopping with Forever Moissanite, you have to decide for yourself if Moissanite is the right choice for you to begin with.
My experience with FOREVER MOISSANITE’S website
So once Forever Moissanite said they would send me MY CHOICE of rings to promote, I got to shopping. First of all, I found their website to be very easy to navigate. I didn’t know exactly what design I wanted, but I did know a few criteria that I liked. I knew I loved a pear shaped center stone, on a yellow gold ring. However, I’m not a “solitaire ring” kind of girl. I need a little more feminine detail. So, when I saw their Graduated Split Shank Pear Cut Ring, I was pretty sure that was the one.
Some of my favorite FOREVER MOISSANITE engagement rings
Before I show you the one I chose, here are a few of my top contenders that didn’t make the cut. Click on the picture for a product link.
Although the photos on their website are super clean, nice to look at, and show all the detail perfectly, I almost felt like the photos were “too perfect”, if that makes sense? I found it really hard to imagine what the rings would look like in person, on my hand. So, I would highly recommend checking out their Instagram page too. Look at their posts AND the “tagged” posts for tons of real-life pictures. It was there that I found a photo of this pear ring on someone’s hand. Take a look at those two photo side-by-side. It helps to see the more candid photo too, right?
So here it is! I chose the 1.25 Carat Graduated Split Shank Pear Cut Moissanite Engagement Ring in yellow gold. I’m freakin IN LOVE! The pictures online really don’t do it justice at all. The stone is so “brilliant” and sparkly, and you would never know it wasn’t a real diamond. I love that it’s “split shank”, because I feel like that gives the suggestion of a wedding band without having to have two separate rings. My original engagement/wedding ring I got from my husband 13+ years ago was that way as well, and I never wore a band with it. My fingers are kind of slim, so this thinner more dainty band is perfect for me.
Here are tons of pictures from every angle and in every type of light… even a little video so you can see how it shimmers.
What do you think? You can leave a comment on this blog. I’d love to know if you would choose a different design (maybe one of my top contenders), or if you would choose a different metal type or stone weight. Also, if you have a personal experience with Moissanite (like if you have one or have seen a friend’s or family member’s in person, I’d love to know what you think.
