So we have been going back and forth for a while on using my moms 1.2 ct diamond…which is of very poor quality.. or purchasing a moissanite forever brilliant. Reading all of these blogs and comments from other users have helped the decion process, and at times made it even more difficult. i finally just placed the order and it feels so overwhelming. we purchased from moissaniteco. i would love fellow bees pictures and opinions on buying the loose gems and then having them set. did you have a hard time finding someone to set a moissanite? Every jeweler we have talked to was so snobby about it…and acted like i was settling for wanting a moissy… thanks gals!

amandaRDH: I would definitely not work with any jeweler that you consider snobby! My entire ring came from MCo, so I didn’t have it set locally, but I did find a very trusted jeweler to do some work on it (it’s palladium). Look around until you find some worth your ring and money!

amandaRDH: I agree with PP… I wouldnt work with any snobby jewelers. We got my ring through a local jeweler. He ordered my moissanite himself from charles and colvard. And, he was amazing through the whole ring purchase. He was super nice and never looked at us like we were settling for moissy… You can definitely find a good local jeweler who will set your moissanite and not be nasty! Cant wait to see your ring. I lovec my moissy!! Heres mine!

Thanks guys! I was in shock at the responses we got when I even mentioned the word moissanite. One even said, “why would you want that? “… or “no, we dont carry FAKE diamonds” “this.is a ring youre going to.wear forever- you really should get what you want”….The place he got my setting from is unfortunately one of those places … I guess after he picks it up ill steer him to a more “small town, local jeweller” who would be happy to have anyones business! More pictures please! ! !

Those jewelers are obviously uneducated, RUDE, and not worth your time and business. I, fortunately, have yet to receive such critism and rude remarks about such an important and memorable event in a woman’s life. It’s so unbelievable, but sadly true that many jewelers avoid anything “fake” and stones that they deem not traditional for a wedding ring. Like the above poster said, DO NOT do business with anyone who you find snobby and rude. Anyways, my fiancé did find a local jeweler who was hesitant to work with us (we both loved moissanite for its dazzling sparkle), but ultimately the goal of any business should be to make you happy! The jeweler did try to make us purchase a diamond, but I’m not much of a diamond girl. You’ll be ecstatic with your Forever Brilliant moissanite! I know I am! 😉
