- Wedding: June 2003
After doing a little research on rings for our upcoming 10 year anniversary this June (still can’t believe it will be 10 years!!) I came across your bee boards and hubby and I were so pleased to learn about moissanite!! We’ve both been wanting to upgrade my .75 diamond for a long time – but after 2 kiddos and house payments, life, etc it just isn’t in the budget right now.
We upgraded my original e-ring (which was a Blue Nile – RB Tiffany 4 prong setting .74-Carat Diamond – E Color, VS2 Clarity) which I loved from Day 1. Then for our 5 year anniv. we had it reset with a halo and bezel setting (see photo and please ignore my awfully dry hands!). We were about to have baby girl #1 and the prongs were always catching on something so bezel was the way to go for me.
Now that we decided to do a bigger stone upgrade for our 10 year and we have fallen in love with moissanite (and want it because it is a moissanite and not a diamond) we’ve been seriously stalking all of these boards since January. 🙂 You ‘Bees’ have helped us so much in making our decision (thank you!!) and after doing our fair share of research; in the end moissy was the right decision for us!
We finally decided we wanted to go back to my original solitaire setting – but with a bezel setting and we were going to order yesterday and got too busy……SO we just went to order today and found (to my utter delight) that in addition to the two bezel set rings we were deciding between (“Bezel Set Round Moissanite Solitaire sol259” and the “Round Moissanite Bezette Solitaire Ring sol300a”)
THAT just TODAY Moissanite Co posted a brand new Bezel set ring design!!!! Which was EXACTLY what we’d been looking for the whole time!!! Yippee!!! My hubby and I both loved it instantly this morning when we saw the new listing!!
It’s called “Petite Bezel Round Brilliant Moissanite Solitaire Ring sol387” on Moissaniteco.com (here’s the link: http://www.moissaniteco.com/petite-bezel-round-brilliant-moissanite-solitaire-ring-p-16394.html) Isn’t it lovely!?!?! 🙂
Like the sol259 they did a cathedral setting – BUT – the band is smaller and daintier – and unlike the daintier sol300a – I CAN wear it with my existing wedding band so the new design couldn’t be MORE perfect!! So happy we didn’t have time to order yesterday!!! Haha!!!
The order we wound up placing this morning was for the 7.5mm/1.5ct Palladium Solitaire ~ Amora Upgrade – my ring size is 5.25 so I do hope the 1.5 equiv doesn’t look too large and/or obnoxious on my hand!!!
I have to admit I am a little nervous since we’ve never seen one in person (we couldn’t find a store where we live that sold them) so I really hope we love it as much in person!!
I will post pics once it arrives!!! For now I’m posting the following pics (in this order):
- the sol387 we ordered today (YAY!)
- my current ring (top view)
- my current ring (side view)
- the thicker band sol259
- daintier band sol300a
Would love your positive reviews on your Moissanite experience and PLEASE post pics of your 1 – 1.5 carat e-ring pics (especially those Bezel Set rings!) to tide me over!! 🙂
Thank you to you bees out there who (unknowingly) helped us with our decision – we’re so excited!!
