    @FutureDrAtkins:  I totally feel you on the nitrile gloves thing, wearing anything high under those is a nightmare. I don’t think you can go wrong either way!! I think there’s WB user (I’ll try to find her) who has a peachy pink moissy in a RG bezel and it’s GORGEOUS. I have just a plain old white round brilliant diamond in a WG bezel, but I really like the idea of the peachy pink in RG, or an OEC in RG to bring out its warmth!

     

    ETA: Found her! Post 50 in this thread; http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/moissanite-owners-onlyplease-a-positive-environment-to-share-our-moissy-love/page/2

    It’s not a ring, but this is what an OEC looks like in a rose gold bezel. I love OECs in rose gold, so that’s what I voted for.

    @FutureDrAtkins:  Yes, MunsterCat! I think she has two bezels and they’re both so so pretty. Haha that’s funny, I thought the exact same thing… that peachy pink is stunning but for me I would want a colorless stone in an engagement ring and I LOVE the chunky facets in OECs (I kinda wish we got an OEC for my ring instead of a RB). If you feel that way too, I think you should go with your gut and get the OEC, it’s really different from your current set but it’ll still look traditionally “engagement-y”.

    I voted OEC, white gold, because I have an Old Mine Cut in platinum and just love it.  I didn’t want any color to the mounting which would color the diamond.  Mine is bezel set and I adore it.   But, if you love rose gold, go for it!!  🙂

    I have a peachy pink moissanite (pic here) and I love it. But if I was getting a rose gold setting like the one you pictured, I would definitely put an unenhance OEC in it. 100%.

    @FutureDrAtkins:  I don’t have any videos, sorry 🙁 but I can post a few more pics! It definitely has a life of its own. It changes color in all types of different lighting. I would be afraid to set it in rose gold though, I’m not sure if it would clash. I do love the look of it in white gold though. I don’t know, I just really love the old fashioned OEC cut. Do they make the OEC in peachy pink?

    @FutureDrAtkins:  haha, for real. Yeah, I would definitely go with the OEC one. I wear this pink one as a RHR most of the time. It is absolutely beautiful, but even in this setting, I never feel like it really looks like an engagement ring. I personally like a clear stone better for an engagement ring. I had this empty setting and didn’t want it to just sit in my jewelry box, so I bought a loose pink moissanite and had it set. I’ve worn it a few times as an engagement ring, but I do like it a lot better on my right hand with my usual wedding set on my left.

    It is a tough call! I love OEC and peachy pink moissanites… I wear them fifty-fifty, no favourites BUT I don’t think I would have bought peachy pink one if I didn’t have  have rings with colourless stones first.

     

    As for settings, I think both sol387 and Sol259 settings would be great. Sol387 is really petite and low set so it might be more comfortable when wearing gloves. I have to add though, sol364 is my favourite bezel setting 🙂
