I have personally had numerous dealings with MoissaniteCo, including repair on my engagement ring, and they have been fantastic each time. Timely, helpful, and courteous. I communicate with them by email, and they’ve never let me down. When I asked them to do a repair, it was done very quickly and free of charge to me, even though I made the request several months after receiving my ring. It came back even better than I had hoped. I haven’t had any experience with other sellers. 

Good luck with your purchase! 

ETA: here’s my bling. Both rings from MoCo, unenhanced 7 mm center on the e-ring.

I’ve heard some poor reviews from Moissaniteco, but the majority of reviews from them seem to be pretty good (a lot of these reviews seem real, esp. on sites where you have bling addicts who buy multiple purchases from different vendors).  A few people had problems with faulty pave settings (Moissaniteco uses settings built by other companies, and the issues where from the setting supplier).  Hopefully there were enough complaints about MoCo’s quality control on this they fixed this issues.  Personally, I’d get a ring from them, but probably not a micropave one.

 

Moissanite.com I’ve heard mixed things on.  I know a few people have gotten things wtih them and were satisfied, but I’ve never heard rave reviews.

 

I’ve never heard a bad review from Schubach’s, and it seems like they do wonderful work – they seem to be the place to go if you’re looking for custom work.  A lot of people seem happy with Amcor as well.

@MrsGtoBe39:  thanks!! I’m happy to share my experience, since I know reviews can be mixed, but people with bad experiences tend to be much more vocal about it (just human nature, I think).

For what it’s worth, I agree with abirdword that Schubach’s tend to have very good fedback, but I found that my same ring costs a few hundred bucks more there, and is only offered with 1 size for the center stone. Sounds like they’re worth it if you want custom work, but otherwise I don’t see the benefit.

My ring was from moissanitejewelryshop.com and is just lovely! We didn’t need any customer service from them because we didnt have any issues.

I got my ring from Moissy Co and am very happpy with it (have had it for a year).  In my experience, Moissy Co isn’t perfect for everyone, but it’s a good option for a lot of people who are interested in Moissy.  Here are my finding:

MoissyCo’s strong points 

 – Price

 – Selection

 – Long track record with selling the product

MoissyCo’s weak points

 – Whenever ordering online, sizing is likely to be imperfect, and if you want to get them to re-size it will cost you in shipping and fees.  You can either buget for those fees, or budget to do it at a different jewlery in person (what I did, didn’t want to deal with the shipping).

 – Moissy Co is good for simpler designs, but they don’t do really intrecate work.  For example, you wont see any tension settings or any true pave, etc.

 – Some people have had quality issues with their settings (obviously a minority of customers).  You are going to have more difficultly dealing with these than with a brick and mortar place.  I cant’ comment specifically for Moissy because I’ve had no quality issues with my setting.

For me, I’m happy with MoissyCo and they will likely be the first place I look if I want any other moissy jewlery.

Welcome to the Bee! My DH got my semi-mount setting from a brick and mortar store, the store was somewhat familiar with moissanite (though I gave them a hefty education, ;P) so they ordered one directly from C &C and set my diamond setting with the moissy. You can also buy them separately and have the jeweler mount it, we just happened to find a jeweler who knew that moissy (and high quality moissy) actually existed. I am very happy that we went the way we did because I can easily drop my ring off to be cleaned, sized, redipped, etc. Here is my moissy (1 carat FB OEC in a 1/2 carat diamond halo.) What cut, carat size and setting are you interested in? 🙂

@Taeyers:  stunning! Wow, how have I never seen your ring before?

 

I have gone all routes. I used amcor was was pleased. I would order the stone to make sure you are happy with it and perhaps set it locally or use one of the above mentioned vendors. Good luck And have fun with it 🙂

@Taeyers:  I am normally not a fan of split-shank, but that is GORGEOUS! I loved the scalloped halo, too. 🙂

@MrsGtoBe39:  http://www.moissaniteco.com/ was where he got mine. I couldn’t be happier, it is freaking fantastic. Also didn’t go with enhanced and don’t see how it could be any better.
