I can only comment on the multiple rings thing, as I don’t know much about moissanite. I love your idea!! Then you can have the best of both worlds. It is very thoughtful. I think she will love it too. Best of luck!

That is a lovely and super thoughtful way of giving everyone what they want – good on you, she’s lucky to have you! I’d be total,y stoked to have two engagement rings that I could switch out depending on what mood I was in.

@pitboss0612:  She can always turn one of the engagement rings into a right hand ring later (if she wears rings). Your idea is definitely cute! I’m sure she’ll love it and its nice to see that you are thinking about her feelings and how her family will react. Unfortunately I can’t comment on moissy because I don’t know much about it but Good Luck!!!

@pitboss0612:  Two rings sounds awesome to me!  For the moissanite ring, MoissaniteCo can definitely help you out.  They do custom work.  Just send in pictures to sales@moissaniteco.com and see what they can do for you.  Let us know how it turns out!

The ring design sounds lovely – but the fibbing to her family doesn’t! If you guys choose to elope in Vegas, make sure to be up front about that with all your family and friends. The formal “wedding” you do afterward for the sake of tradition, would actually be a vow renewal.

Good luck!! She is lucky to have a thoughful guy like you 🙂

Bless your heart! If this was my SO I would be so pleased you asked 🙂

 

So…. my 2p worth

 

If she is on the AmoraGem waiting list I would use that as the main ‘engagement’ clear stone  you could do a very simple tiffany style setting.. or something vintage. I have been looking for settings for one myself and found Allurez.com that ship just settings… so once you have the gem shipped from vietnam back to you,you could have it set locally. Very reasonable prices. or get a local jeweller to do- maybe if they have a vintagey setting? or ship it back to moissaniteco.com who have told me they will set AmoraGem when they come out- they will be well versed in how to treat it properly

As far as I know you wont get Amora sidestones.. they are starting to make them 9mm, then 8mm.. then smaller but I dont believe sidestone size.

A hint. You can get on the waitlist yourself on betterthandiamond.com and if budget will allow sign up for 9 or 8mm round as they are coming first… or just pick the one you want. You will be emailed when they start production

This may also be a great excuse on the black diamond.. Amoragem will start to be released to the waiting list aug/Sept.. so if for any reason you still dont have it by Dec you can explain away the black diamond that you are waiting on a stone to come available (tell them its a diamond if they dont get it)

 

Alternatively moissaniteco.com is a great place for regular moissy and they have a vintage section on their site with ‘reproduction’ rings cast exactly as their old fashioned counterparts You can get them in gold, palladium, rose gold etc. 

Adalia is one of my favourites and they can make wedding bands to match- heres a pic in real life as an idea

For the black diamond I think you will find loads online 🙂 etsy.com etc is a good place to start. Then she can wear this as a right hand ring after! 

 

Good luck!

It’s so sweet that you’re being so sensitive to everyone in this situation.  I think most women would be happy to have two rings.  If she is set on the color and not necessarily the stone type, I believe they make black moissanite.  Check out betterthandiamond.com in addition to moissaniteco.
