I was bitten by the moissanite bug lately. I’ve just bought a cheap one from eBay, and now I want to have a better one.
I really would like to have an antique cushion cut, and as far as I know only Schubach jewellers and JYB jewels are offering this cut.
I inquired for prices at both vendors, and JYB jewels was better with prices.
Does someone have experience with them? They have an Etsy shop, and Jules was quite quickly with answering my questions, so I had a good first impression.
Unfortunately I can’t order from both, because I’m located in Europe and I have to pay 20 % VAT for every imported item, so order and return the one which I don’t like is not an option for me.
does someone have experience with them?

dkata81 : I do! I trust and would work with either of them. They’re both stellar imo. Good luck and come back and show us what you got!

Unfortunately I have the next problem.
I was considering at first a 9.5*8.5 stone, this would be my sweet spot. The problem is following: I would like to have a “cheap” setting, lets say under 500. Jules told me, it is only possible with the stone size 9*8 mm, because she could order for this size stone a setting from Stuller.
I was considering to order the bigger stone loose, and find a cheap setting somewhere else, but I’m afraid the jewellers don’t have experience with setting a moissanite where I live.
So what should I do? Order the smaller one with setting, or order the bigger one and take the risk, to set it here?
Could someone show me pictures of a 9*8 cushion on size 5 finger?

Check out Overstock. They sell Charles and Colvard at half the price.

notlookingtogetmarried – than you for your advice, but I would like to have an antique cushion cut, and as far as I know C&C doesn’t sell this cut.

I agree with the pp, also sometimes you can find a great moissanite fire deal on Jtv. But read the reviews and hopefully they’ll have a video.

I say go for the 9×8, its such a small difference size wise, you have a little finger AND you get a cheap setting
