Mine is a little over 12mm on a size 5.5. My center is 7mm I believe. Whatever 1.25 ct is.

Briannacorrinec:  When I saw your gorgeous design today it got me thinking.  I too am having a custom ring made by Moissy Co but I was not 100% loving the design as I really wanted side stones in addition to the halo. When I saw how custom your ring is I decided to contact Chris about adding stones to mine. I just submitted this order request 2 days ago mind you. He’s been so nice all along. …UNTIL TONIGHT. He sent me backa very fast email saying it was going to be a problem because they have already hired a designer and they are already working on my CAD.  He said”we’ll see where they are at tomorrow”. That interaction is really bothering me! I have already spent $1100 dollars with them. Told him cost not an issue.  Jeez,  it’s not like they’ve already cast the rings or anything. I was excited about the changes, making my ring set to die for perfect for me, but now I’m just feeling a little UGH. Not a good feeling at all. Can’t understand why he’d treat a customer willing to spend even more money this way.  

Wondering if I should have gone elsewhere. ..

Your ring looks gorgeous by the way, and the size will be fine.  You get used to it!

Sorry for venting on your post, I was just kind of shocked cuz he’s been so patient and nice before.   Don’t feel bad, your ring was inspiring to me, not a negative thing at all!!

That beauty will be on your hand before you know it!

My original plan was just to modify one of their online designs from prong set to bezel.  No big deal.  But I was torn between 2 rings they had.  One has beautiful scroll work.  The other was a 3 stone halo with a round center and trillion sides. Now I’m asking them to combine the two and get ALL of the elements I want. It’s going to be a honker! 3 ct center,  halo,  trillions,  scroll,  miligrain,  pave. I’ll never get bored with it, lol!

That ring is amazing! I didn’t realize that MoissyCo does fully custom rings. Is it very expensive? Like do they charge you an extra design fee? I’ve been trying to choose bewteen three rings on their site but none of them are QUITE right. But I don’t want to go custom and kill my guys budget.

The custom work runs about 185 to 300. Email them what you like on each ring and ask for a quote. They send the CAD right to your email. I so feel your pain.  I loved the top view of one,  side view of another.  Trying to combine them!

MoissyManiac:  Ugh. They really still need to work on their customer service! That is not OK! Adding side pave to a CAD design shouldn’t be difficult at all. Like you said, it’s not like the ring has already been cast. I hope everything works out for you with them. It is really frustrating not having a phone number to call when so much money is involved, and on top of that, with the shear volume of clients they have you would think they would hire more people to help…

FutureDrAtkins:  right?  Isn’t the whole point of doing a CAD is getting design perfect before casting?  I would understand if they were already making the rings,  but we just started the CAD process!

I think OP is right,  let it roll off my shoulders. I certainly would not want to be answering ring questions all day. (Except here, of course!)

We’ll see if he’s in a better mood today.  Waiting for an email now.    I just want to be totally happy and not settle for good enough.
