@ForeverMrsB:  First of all, please do not listen to anything a Kay jewelers salesperson tells you…about any stone, including the ones they sell. To answer your question, no, it is not true: moissanite is cut to standard diamond sizes. If you want to replace a moissanite with another stone the only question is if the setting can withstand a stone swap (some tension or bezel settings can’t). As for the cons of moissanite, there are other threads regarding this issue, but really there are no cons aside from it being man-made (a plus to me!) and in the G-H color range.

 

If I were you I’d be looking at barely-pink moissanite. Aquamarine and morganite are beautiful but they are soft. If durability is a concern, you can’t do better than moissanite. You should visit the BetterThanDiamond.com forum for more info, those ladies are extremely knowledgeable.

 

Here is an absolutely stunning ring which is below your budget with a 1 ct stone: http://www.moissaniteco.com/round-brilliant-moissanite-diamond-petite-halo-engagement-ring-p-13100.html

 

I’ve seen IRL photos of the above and really, it is beyond gorgeous. The stock photos do not do it justice. But note, any setting that has pave stones in the band requires more upkeep. You might need to replace stones frequently. I was considering this set for my ring, but ended up choosing a plain band because I didn’t want to have to baby my ring or worry about replacing stones.
