So I’m new here but have been a crazy stalker for a little while. My partner and I are choosing my ring together, but its mostly on me, because he wants me to have what I want :-/ I am the most indecisive person on the planet, I mean I cant even decide on the food I want to eat most days haha.
I have however chosen to have a moissanite as my centre stone, that I’m sure of and you would think that was the hard part lol. I also would like a round set halo, but I cant decide on a plain or pave set shank. Originally I was set on pave but I am worried about losing stones and what not, I’m not exactly delicate on my hands.
My biggest dilemma is where to purchase my ring from! I was happy to purchase from moissaniteco but then reading mixed reviews has me slightly nervous, especially seeing as I live in Australia! and sending the ring back and forth if I wasnt happy would be a nightmare. I emailed David Klass after seeing his work and he quoted me something very reasonable but for some reason can only make the ring up to a size 7 (I’m not sure why this is?) I could fit a size 7 but I’m more comfortable in a 7.5 and probaly on hot days an 8!
I’ve also emailed moissaniteco a few times over the last 4 -5 days and am yet to receive a response which also makes me feel a bit nervous.
I never thought I would be a crazy person obsessing like this, and probably truth be told if I wasnt picking I would be happy with anything! But making the decision is driving me insane!
Sorry for the ramble! If anyone has any recent experiences or suggestions or calm words haha it would be much appreciated!

I’m surprised they haven’t gotten back to you. I usually hear from them in 24 hours. I am currently having them customize a ring for me, so can’t give you “quality” review just yet. I did order a loose stone from them which arrived on time and nicely packaged.
There’s lots of bees with moissy rings. Hopefully one of them is Australian and can advise you. Maybe try a post like “fellow Aussies, need help with moissanite”

Moissaniteco from what I’ve heard is a great company and have great jewelry but lack in communication. Have you tried Joseph Schubach’s? He is known for amazing custom pieces and he works with moissanite. They have a lady named Beth whom has an eye for hand picking the whitest stones. http://shopping.schubachstore.com/
You could also check Rosados box on etsy. Their home site is http://www.loveandpromisejewelers.com/ they have beautiful moissanite rings as well. Hope you find what you’re looking for goodluck!

MoissyManiac: Thanks! I had a look at that thread 🙂 Cant wait to see your custom design! I think I have read nearly every moissy thread on here 😀
mrssloan2013: Thanks for the links! I did have a little look at schubach’s but they seem to be quite a bit more over priced then others around though beautiful work. And it seems its very hit and miss with the communication you recieve from moissaniteco! I have seen some beautiful rings from then but reading the mix reviews, the lack of communication really scares me away 🙂
I spoke more with david klass and I misunderstood, turns out he can make the ring in my size! So I’m pretty certain I will be going with him, his prices, work and communication all seem fantastic. I feel a bit more at ease now, I never thought ring shopping would be so stressful 😀
