Lol girl I’m so tired of looking and changing my mind.

i forgot I could always get the round and have it put in a cushion halo. Laurenb has tons like that. Not that I would go through them but I’m sure someone could make one like it. Hers are really seamless though. 

 

You can’t even tell that it’s a round right? I may just do that. It eliminates the problem with the size and cut and vendor etc etc etc of the ACC. Idk. I know exactly what size and vendor to get the H&A so I might just do this instead lol. 

siiigghhh

im in Miami I wish we could open a store lol

michellelynn9175 :   Sitori :  Omg you girls really know your stuff!! This is my first post, I’ve been lurking for so long but had to make an account to ask for your help.

We are in the process of picking a ring.. I know I want an elongated cushion (only slightly elongated, like 7×6) with a thin pave band and surprise/hidden halo. I’ve read everything you’ve said on this thread and my head is spinning haha! I’m in the UK so don’t have anywhere near as much knowledge of moissanite but could you help me out by explaining the difference between F1/Haro/Neo/Zaya?! I’d like my moissanite to look as diamond like as possible – whilst being a moissanite haha!

thealmostbride :  lol welcome to the club! 

It’s all personal preference honestly. Easier for me to tell you go for the Charles and Colvard if you’re looking to get a round cut. But then again you’d have to ask if you prefer the super fiery(rainbow) stone like the F1 or the “more diamond” less fiery H&A stone. The NEO diamond cut is supposed to resemble the diamond cut the best although it is almost too “blah” for me. I think the best round honestly is the C&C Hearts and Arrows cut. It’s gorgeous and I’ve never heard one person say otherwise. 

The ACC is a different story. I’ve heard HARRO is the best but then others say no. So many companies are cutting them nowadays. I just found out Fire and Brilliance has one now. I didn’t even know. You really just have to read and read and watch a million videos like we have to compare all the different vendors cuts. OR if you have the money the BEST way would be to just purchase loose stones and find out which one you like the best and then send the rest back. If I had the money I would have already done that lol. 

Just stick with big companies that have certifications and read reviews, watch videos..it’s all you can really do. I was dead set on an ACC but with all the different cuts and sizes and colors and so many different opinions on which one is good or not good etc etc, I don’t know if I’m going to stay with it anymore. It’s much easier to just go with what you know to be GOOD and I know the H&A is good lol.

Sitori :   michellelynn9175 :  I don’t know whether to thank you both or not haha! More confused than ever but totally understand it’s all down to personal preference. I have no idea about the difference between brilliant, crushed ice and antqiue!!
With me being in the UK, as far as I’m aware, none of our high street jewellers stock moissanite so no option of going to view any. 
It’s also my understanding that the material is the same regardless of who we chose, just cut differently – so unless we are both wrong then you are right! 
I thiiink I am down to three options…
1. Have MoissaniteCo make the setting and provide the stone – they do e-cushion in their own brand, but not F1 etc. This would be the most cost effective and hassle free. They can offer me an e-cushion in an “H” which I think I would be happy with, I feel like the very slight warmth would make it more “believable” to anyone I didn’t wish to educate about moissanite.
2. Buy an e-cushion (OMC) from Zen Moissanite on Etsy and have it set by MoissaniteCo.
3. Buy a crushed ice Harro and have it set by MoissaniteCo.

thealmostbride :  I follow this post so I can see Michele Lynn’s final ring! I would absolutely recommend JYB for her OMC/ACC. I purchased one this past year, and I love it! She’s willing to work within your budget and has a great bench to create what you might want. She used a stock setting for my ring due to budget, so don’t be put off by her prices.

manderson62 :   michellelynn9175 :  I haven’t even looked at JYB yet so that will now be tonight’s research, thankyou!!

Haha it’s fine! I’d rather be 100% clued up on all options so I don’t have any regrets in future! I really don’t know the difference between OMC/antique/brilliant! I’ve literally just been noting down the names of the ones I’ve seen and liked the look of! Totally get why you’d want a whiter stone but I do think I’ll be okay with an H as I have nothing to compare it to. 

Thats really handy to know about the Harro potentially being tooo white. The Nora on True Gem was my original number one choice but I’ve selected a different setting now and TG is just a bit too expensive. I’ll attach a pic. Sorry if it’s huge!
