    Getting Engaged During COVID19? I DO.......BUT I DON'T!

    I DO!...BUT I DON'T!

    "Covid19 has affected lives all over the world. I do want to get married, but I DON'T want my partner to spend too much on my ring. Now is just not the right time, but I want to be engaged to the love of my life."  ~ Amanda - 28 ( Vaughan)  

    56% of women surveyed stated they would rather save the cash than have an expensive ring. So much has changed in the world, that you may be asking yourself some questions.

    What should we do?  Would we rather have the ring or the cash?  Is there a more affordable option when looking for an engagement ring?

     

    Diamond engagement rings have been recognized for many decades as the ultimate symbol of love and union.  Marketing geniuses spent many decades persuading consumers on what type of ring would symbolize true love. They used different tactics to convince couples that without a diamond, your union would not be viewed in the eyes of society as " legitimate ". They even went as far as to dictate how MUCH of your money you must spend to show how much you are in love. Sounds really silly when you actually read it, doesn't it?

    Fast forward to 2020 and there is a new sparkle in town. Dubbed the #1 diamond alternative chosen by brides, Moissanite gemstones are creating a pretty recognizable footprint in the jewellery market. You've probably noticed big name brands adding moissanite centre stones to their repertoire.

    Moissanite gemstones were first discovered by scientist Henri Moissan in 1893 in a Meteorite crater in Arizona. In depth studies discovered the natural minerals were silicon carbide, and decades later new scientists would patent the process of lab created moissanite gemstones. After years of perfecting growth and cuts we now have moissanite in colourless DEF grade, with VVS clarity. Durable enough for everyday wear and a striking resemblance to a diamond. 

    Now even though moissanite will test as a diamond on a diamond tester, and can trick even a trained eye, it should be recognized as its own unique gemstone. Moissanite gemstones are 9.25 on the MOHS scale making it durable for everyday wear, a 2.65 refractive index, 0.10 Fire dispersion and 20% luster, meaning it has the most fire and brilliance than any gemstone on the market today.

    Millennial women (ages 24 to 35), within this age group, 56 percent said they’d rather take the cash, and choose a diamond alternative. They went on to say, "it’s about feeling wanted, feeling valued, and feeling like we actually mean something to each other.  As cliche as it may sound, it really is the thought that counts."
     

    Millennials continue to value experiences over material things, and often only allocate a modest budget for their engagement ring and wedding. Today couples truly view relationships as partnerships, and will not deem only one partner responsible for a ring purchase. Rather the decision is often made together, so that both have insight and opinion in the final product. Again focusing on the experience of finding the perfect symbol of their love. 

     

    By choosing a moissanite engagement ring you can ultimately created a superior ring to the original ring you may have been eyeing and potentially save up to 80% of that cost. That savings can be used to plan that wedding that you WILL have one day, home purchases, starting a family, or paying down debt, and guess what? after all is said and done, 

    1. You're in LOVE and engaged

    2. Your ring is drool worthy

    3. You SAVED A BUNDLE!

    Choosing an engagement ring is just ONE of the intimate milestones you will make with your partner. This should only be your choice, not some marketing gurus' choice.
