Ever had this happen?
I was at the Dr. today and the nurse grabbed my hand & was oohing & aahing over my ring - 8mm RB moissy goodness! So I said, "Oh! It's moissanite!" And then went on to explain to her about it as I watched her eyes slowly glaze over....

So, all my good intentions of being up front went right down the drain, lol! I always thought I'd always tell people it's moissanite, but now I might just say thanks instead!

Ever happen to anyone else?

People can be ignorantly crummy! But it can be a drain on the ole personal clock to launch into the "it's made from stars" speech, which most people won't understand anyway. Rock your rock proudly. Banana

Yeah, it's not worth explaining to some people.

One day, I'll be a crazy old lady weighed down by all my baubles and it will be glorious.

I also just say "thanks" in response to compliments for moissy jewelry. Wink Unless somebody asks or exhibits strong symptoms of being a jewelry addict themselves, I don't feel compelled to share all the details.

RE: Ever had this happen?
I learned my lesson early on . . . several co-workers were admiring my (then) new Amora moissy ring and, naturally, I launched into my spiel when another co-worker came by and disdainfully said "it's just a cubic zirconia." I did try to correct her as she was walking away, but I was left fuming.

Long story short, that same mean co-worker is now looking to purchase moissie studs and she would love a matching pendant tooRofl

Now-a-days I just say thanks and move on unless, as another poster stated, the individual shows clear signs and symptoms of addiction Toofunny
