Ive recently fallen in love with an antique filagree ring from moissanite co. Problem is the rings stone size is 2carat. After doing a fair bit of reading from other forums, a lot of bees conclude that if the stone is over 1 carat the stone is better off enhanced.
I was just wondering if any ladys could show me examples (your real life moissy pics) of both enhanced and unenhanced moissys that are 2+ carats?
I am really in love with this ring and because it will be my forever ring, It is really important to me to get it right the first time round. As my ring is going to be yellow gold I am worried the unenhanced stone might look too yellow.
Your opinions are highly needed/appreciated.
P.s this is the ring

I don’t have a moissy, but your ring choice is wonderful – love the antique look and I’m a fan of yellow gold. Please post when you get it!

I have a FB OEC and it is warm still. It looks even warmer because it is set in warm metal.
here is the ring you want in unplated white gold with an unenhanced.

@wifey2be: Thanks!! I would recommend viewing a loose stone and working with a vendor that hand picks their stones and screens them, like Schubach’s. I know a lot of people that have gotten a stone they love that way.

This stone is my 2 carat unenhanced and it looks pretty white to me. I am actually selling the stone on ebay right now. It has never been mounted (it’s sitting in the setting not actually “set” in there).
@wifey2be: It’s actually probably cheaper to get loose stone separately from the setting and get it set. For example, my stone is listed for $340 right now but on the MoissaniteCo site it is around $610 for a 2 carat stone!
