folks compliment me on my cubic zirconia wedding rings all the time, should I just say thanks? or tell them they aren't real??

I have two really nice square cut cubic zirconia rings that I wear on my ring finger and I get compoliemented all the time on them and also on other costume jewelry...what is the proper response? I guess no one has to know right??

  • No one has to know is right! That's your business. You wouldn't tell a person what is in your pay check right? That's private. If someone were to compliment your blouse would you say "Thanks is a cotton/poly blend"? Probably not. Just say thanks and move along.

  • Do what you're doing...Fake it! :) In fact I think Wal-Mart has some of the prettiest jewelry, seriously, I'd buy it.

  • I got a CZ ring after I lost my first wedding ring and before my husband replaced mine. I just accepted compliments unless I felt like I was intimidating someone and then I reassured them that it wasn't a real diamond. It was fun for that year or two.
