@RachelJay:  1. No it isn’t!

2. My ring is from Schubach’s which was wonderful to work with. We used them for my wedding band too and again, flawless customer service and quality control. Its 1 ct equivalent FB moissy set in palladium with 7/8 ct. of diamonds in the halo and shanks. It cost just over 3k.

We got ours from MoissaniteCo and ordered the loose Amora first to see the stone before setting it. It’s a 1.5 Carat and I have size 8.5 fingers. We paid just under $1000 for the ring as it is a plain solitaire and got it in palladium to avoid the re-dipping of gold and the heaviness of platinum!

to answer your questions,

1) not if you’re both down with it! it’s just a pretty trinket, at the end of the day

2) I bought my stone loose and had a local jeweler set it! I would’ve used moissanite sidestones, but diamonds in that size are way easier to source than tiny moissy. I’m guessing total cost was around $1000.

@ClaireM:  thanks for your encouraging words! I designed it, and now that the perfect mold’s been created, it’s actually available for sale on request. this isn’t really my line of business, so I’m not in it for profit. I just want to create beautiful things. :’D

This is my 1.5ct RB FB Moissy, on a size 7 finger! I got it from Moissaniteco.com and I LOVE IT! It’s style WED 560, or ENG 192 in the 14k white gold and total it was about $1800. When I was making the decision to go with Moissanite, and trying to get FI on board with it, I showed him a bunch of pictures of diamonds next to moissanite and had him tell me what one he liked better. 9 times out of 10, he chose the moissy!

@RachelJay:  #1 No it’s not ridiculous to change your e-ring! We upgraded. I’m allergic to white gold, and it just isn’t my “style” (princess, I’m a cushion/round gal).

#2 (hehe #2) FI got my ring from Etsy, from a store called Rare Earth. She answered all his questions and her craftsman ship is absolutely supperb. I haven’t checked how much is cost, but it was around $2500. I’m sure if you need to try it on, the online jewelers will send you the wax moulds so you can get a feel.

#3 I have a 1.5ct antique cushion with 5/8ctw natural diamonds around the double halos and the shans. I absolutely adore my ring! 

I hope this helps! I’ll pop in the stock photo and the irl photo!

& IRL:

Good luck!

I’ll play along.

Mine is a MoissaniteCo creation. 1ct equivalent, unenhanced. My mom can’t tell it isn’t a diamond, though I didn’t get moissanite to try and pass it off as such. I got moissanite because it’s gorgeous in person, has a lot of personality, and was more affordable for us.

And for what it’s worth, if you and your fiance are both on board with changing your engagement ring for something else, go for it. I don’t think it’s ridiculous at all if you’re being smart about it and this isn’t an impulse thing.
