My boyfriend and I are looking at rings – do you know if it is possible to put a moissanite stone into a setting from Blue Nile? Both of them are online retailers, so I’m not sure how that would work. He is going to call one of their consultants but I was wondering if anyone knew about this.

Your best bet would be to order the setting and stone individually, then take them to a local jeweler to have the stone set. Just make sure to let the jeweler know its a moissy so they can use the correct temperatures to set the stone and it doesnt get damaged 🙂 Good luck!

What missapis said; that’s exactly what we did with my ring. We got the moissanite from MoissCo and the setting from Jared’s and took it to an independent local jeweler to have it set. Be forewarned though that sometimes it can be hard to find a local jeweler who will work with moissanite as some still have a bad attitude about it — I don’t know what you’d do in that case, I don’t know if MoissCo will set your stone for you in a setting that’s not their own or not. Perhaps ask MoissCo that as well just to be sure, that way you know you always have that option if you can’t find anyone local to do it!

Talk to your local jewelers first before you buy anything. You don’t want to end up with a loose stone from moissco and a setting from bluenile that no one will touch.

Blue Nile unfortunately does not sell their settings alone , you have to purchase a stone with it .
You can always get a setting made custom

Further on what CanadianMermaid said — Although Blue Nile doesn’t sell their settings alone, Adiamor.com does and they have a fabulous selection.

Thanks so much everyone- it actually turns out we found the perfect diamond ring at Kay’s that came to the same price that it would have been to do the moissanite and the setting from somewhere else…now its just a matter of WAITING aaaah.
