Just wondering why shipping isn’t possible? I also live in Canada and got mine just fine.  Anyways moving along, I don’t think you should fixate on the size of the center stone.  While it is something you will wear for the rest of your life it’s also something that’s given from you futire FI’s heart.  Why do you want the larger CT size to begin with?   

 

In the end I think all the rings you posted are beautiful!  If the carat size really does matter though I would suggest looking into other suppliers.

@JazzyGemini:  if MoissaniteCo doesn’t ship to your location, you can always buy a moissy from BTD or eBay. Also check out DiamondBistro for moissy rings. Lots of etsy sellers also sell moissy in semimounts.

My favorite of the pics you posted is the second one.

However, if you’re really set on moissanite, you could talk to a local jeweler and have them obtain a loose stone and custom-set it for you, or try an alternative moissy retailer.

Edit: Oops, PPs beat me to it. Hope you find something you love, moissanite or not!

@JazzyGemini:  You could also consider secondhand, like idonowidont.com Or blue nile or james allen. You should be able to get something bigger through them than you would in a store. Etsy also sells moissanite, someone there might be able to ship it to you. I know james allen sells the settings alone, so you could even just get the moissy stone from etsy and pop it in a setting 🙂 What is your budget? I’m sure the bees could find you something you love

I would order a moissy from schubachs or btd and request it sent thru ups since u don’t have usps I’m sure they will try to accommodate you and then buy a setting at a jeweler and have it set there 🙂

@JazzyGemini:  I’ve picked up a package from them (Coincidentally a ring lol). Did you talk to the people at the PG office or phone some 1800#?  Mine was attempted once as a door knocker but I told them I’m not home during the day so the didn’t do the 2nd or 3rd attempts, they just held it there for me to pick up no problem.

@JazzyGemini:  Is the address out in a rural area? I live on 1st and Tabor and a driver definitely came to my house. If it’s just that particular address they won’t go to then you should be able to just give them Fedex’s address on 1st and they’ll hold it there for you.  I’d go into the pg office and talk to them before giving up because I think someone’s given you wrong information. I actually work at Purolator and when people call the 1800 number they get someone in Ontario or Halifax and they don’t know wtf they’re talking about when they ask about pg deliveries.
