My dh and I unfortunately separated for about 2 year (but never divorced). Thankfully, we are back together and stronger & better than we ever were! Sadly, while I was still in the "furious" stage of the separation, I sold my wedding set. Now that we are together again, I'd love to have new rings but we really don't want to spend the kind of $ that we did before. I've been looking at rings that are sterling silver & cubic zirconia & I must say that I'm impressed with how well they are made these days. I'm curious if anyone else here has a set that is CZ & silver? What are your thoughts on a "fake" diamond vs. the real deal? Or does it even matter to you at all?

Mine are real diamonds set in white gold. I don't think that there is anything wrong with having a "fake" set, though. The lab manufactured gems are beautiful. I have some other rings with fake stones, and they look real.
Mine are real, but we were thinking about getting a CZ ring so that I could still wear something when my fingers started swelling up. CZ rings can sparkle so much and can be so eye-catching. I'll probably get one just because.
Just my opinion, but if you can't afford a diamond, why get a fake one? My engagement ring is a sapphire. We chose that because that's what was in the ring when we got it (I inherited my great grandmother's ring.) My mother offered to take out the sapphire and put in a diamond, but I liked the sapphire. Other stones can be more affordable, and the only reason we connect diamonds with engagement is because of marketing. ;-)
