@Sassyscotty:  I heard a lot of people check out moissaniteco… i’ve checked it out myself and they sell loose gemstones AND settings. most of their rings are beautiful

Moissanites are really strong. I’ve heard they have a 9.5 MOH scale which is close to a diamond!

I’m curious to see some on-hand pics as well! I’m not engaged yet, but SO and I have been looking at rings and I absolutely love the radiant shape! For me its between that and the cushion but I am def leaning towards radiant. 

I have a moissanite necklace, and from the first time I saw it I knew I wanted to have it in my engagement ring. Traditional diamonds are nice, but I know we could never afford a diamond the carat size I would like with the clarity and shine that moissanite has.

Mine is a cushion moissanite from moco. The .85 carat center with halo and split shank on a 4.25 finger. I will be wearing 2 wedding bands in just a few weeks!!

@Lalk2bee:  

Your ring is beautiful and I think the same one i’ve been looking at on moissaniteco.com! Do you by chance know what style number yours was?

@Sassyscotty:  I almost fit the criteria! I have a double halo, 6.5mm cushion moissanite, but the halo’s are very delicate! (to me) it doesn’t look or feel gaudy, as some say a double halo does.
Here’s a photo for referance!

Radiant Moissy over here! I love it but sometimes it seems to have a “bowtie” effect so it looks more like a long princess cut. Mine is a 1.20ct 7x5mm fancy yellow in a catherdral setting setting. I like a high set stone because it can fit flush with almost any band.

 

The cushions are gorgeous and I eventually want to get one set in a halo as a RHR.
