You keep posting wonderful pictures of the most beautiful, sparkly, ethical, super-lovely rings I have ever seen and it is making me want one! I’ve never felt this way about jewelry in my entire life, but now I’m having serious moissanite envy. I love the wooden rings we ordered sooo much, but…the sparkle….oooohh, pretty…. I have Weddingbee in one tab, MoissaniteCo in another one, and homework…well, underneath it all somewhere.
Really, it’s just too much 🙂
Would anyone with a moissanite ring know if MoissaniteCo can use recycled gold to make a setting?

You know, you can buy a loose stone on that site, I think. Then you could just find a recycled gold setting you like somewhere else and voila!
Can I see a pic of your wooden rings? Sounds cool!

Sure! They’re ash and jade, with rosewood on the inside. Lovely, natural, representative of everything Mr. Bunny and I are about. BUT…there must be something in my female raccoon brain that is just attracted to sparkly objects, lol

Oh! I love the bands you have now, but I understand the sparkle need!
I’m not sure if MoissaniteCo can use recycled gold, but we got my set made by a local jeweler. He used my grandmother’s gold from her engagement ring and melted it to create mine. I love it!!! The center is a an unenhanced moissanite. He works with moissanite a lot and has a good Charles and Colvard supplier. I would check into local jewelers in your area to see if they can do something similar.
Here’s my grandmother’s set (I only used the e-ring)
And here’s my e-ring

I have to admit I have major moissanite envy too! I absolutely love my sapphire and definitely don’t want to replace her–I just also really want some moissanite jewelry now, too! I’ve hinted at the future Mr. that a wonderful anniversary gift would be some super sparkly dangly moissy earrings…. 🙂 I wear earrings way more than rings (I have 5 holes in my ears lol) so I think I’d wear earrings more than another ring…

I have massive moissanite-envy! I have a cute little ruby e-ring and I love it, butttttttt…. I have a mild obsession with the tiffany-inspired 0.66 ct solitaire on moissaniteco! (feeling a little guilty about that haha)

@ThunderBunny: Those bands are amazing! Wow!
I totally understand your sparkle lust. I used to have a band (it wasn’t plain but it had tiny diamonds I really love it but it was much too uncomfortable for me to wear, especially after my son came along and honestly, I craved a little more bling! LOL!). So I am now the proud owner of a moissanite ring! I LOVE it! Having an ethical ring was VERY important to me too, (my old ring had diamonds, but they were recycled). I am SO glad I discovered moissanite! Now I can have pretty sparkle without worrying if someone was killed for my diamond. Diamond owners, please don’t jump down my throat for saying that, I understand that they are trying to make the diamond industry more ethical.
Anyway, good luck with whatever you decide to do. If I were to ever wear just a band again, I would want something like yours! They are stunning!!
Here are a couple pics of my ring. I’ve posted it on a couple other threads already but I couldn’t resist posting it again. I can honestly say this is the first piece of jewelry that I LOVE!! I’ve never felt this way about jewelry either!

I love moissanite too! I have diamonds but seriously might want some moissanite solitaire earrings!
all a gorgeous stone is, is a rock that does really great under pressure!
Hats off to all the ladies with the lovely rings!

Beautiful rings everyone! 🙂
I like the idea of some moissy earrings…or maybe a right-hand ring someday. Honestly, I’m kind of excited about wearing my wooden e-ring so I can tell people about it when I get engaged, lol. It would be a shame to miss an opportunity to get on my soapbox about something. But seriously, how awesome is it that moissanite even exists?! What a great option. And man, is it pretty.

I love both moissanite and wooden rings. I have a diamond, which I love too, don;t get me wrong. But I have this secret hippy side, no offense, that really would have adored a wooden ring. Cest la vie!

@ThunderBunny: You can buy a loose stone and put it into any setting you want. I’ve been engaged since Nov and I still visit moissaniteco.com. ^_^ I’m looking for a right hand ring and also a bracelet. Your wooden rings are amazing! I love what they mean to you.
