Hi there,

I don’t have personal experience with getting the loose stone and having it set elsewhere, but I do have experience with MoissaniteCo overall.  I was planning on buying a setting elsewhere, but after seeing so many pictures of others’ great rings from MoissaniteCo, I decided to just get one of their settings.  We bought a 1.5ct round brilliant Amora enhanced stone, in a white gold setting, and it was gorgeous. I DID have to get it resized, and decided to send it back into them.  It was nervewracking sending it in the mail (definitely get it insured if you go this route), but they received it the next day, sized it within a couple days, and I got it back to me in under a week.  Definitely took less time than if I had gone to a local jeweler.

Anyways, I know that isn’t really what you’re asking for, so hopefully since this will bump the thread, you’ll get some responses from the people who have had theirs set locally!

We bought a classic 4 prong in white gold and then took to a local jeweler.

Many large / name brand jewelers will NOT work with moissanite, so I suggest you look for a mum and pop type shop, possibly even buy the setting from them?

One other tip.  I see a lot of good quality settings now in Pallidum.  It’s a fantastic metal, stays super white and stronger than platinum but you are going to fine SUCH a tough time with a jeweler that can work with it.  I would say don’t get one.

I have 14 K white gold.

I got my stone set at a local jeweler. They ordered the stone for us though. They set it in Platinum and though it ended up costing more than we wanted through mistakes and miscommunication it was still way cheaper than the high street and was independantly valued twice what we paid for it. 

I get it cleaned and polished at a closer local jeweler. Both of these jewelers have given me prices for a matching wedding band they will make up in any metal I choose including Tungsten and Palladium which chain stores tend to ignore. I’m going with Palladium to match the Platinum of my ring but cost less so I can feel less stressed about wearing my wedding ring every day. I don’t like white gold, the redipping is extra maintenance I just can’t be bothered with. I have jewelry in yellow gold, platinum and silver. If i’d known more about Palladium i’d probably have had my Ering made from it and saved hundreds of pounds. Ah well.

@longoverdue I myself live in Dallas, and have done a good amount of research on being able to see moissanite in person before purchasing from MoissaniteCo. I have found two places that do carry it in their stores, but only unenhanced. I haven’t had a chance to go myself, but it is definitely on my list to go soon! The places I have found are



(they have a store in the Galleria)


The Jewelry Forrest

(by appointment only)


I was going to check out the store in the galleria to see if they have any settings I like so I could just use them to set the loose moissanite stone. Anyways, I hope this helps?

I don’t know about getting it set in your area, but James Allen would set your stone if you sent it to them.  They charge a fee, but they will do it.  They did for my sapphire.
