ALL ALONG i’ve been insanely in love with my ring. it was the closest i could find in moissanite to my ultimate dream ring, see here:
Here’s my ring
and i was on MoCo today, looking for something for someone else, and i saw that they had this
I HATE MY LIFE
8 months ago, they didnt have that. and now they do.
and it feels a little like they’re mocking me.
sorry about the vent.

Oh man, I can see how that would be disappointing!

@futuremrswood25: wooowww that’s identical to your dream ring! It’s gorgeous, but so is your ring! Does mco have any kind of trade up upgrade program? could you reset your moissy in that setting when you get married maybe?

@MissSweetiepie: I have no idea. perhaps i will look into it.
i hate that ring so much right now. it ruined everything. haha.
i know my ring is gorgeous, and i still love it, but i hate it too. its the worst.
how mean of moissanite co to do this to me.

@futuremrswood25: Aww 🙁
I can relate SOOOO much!
My husband & I invested an a regular 9mm coating enhanced round brilliant moissanite in 2010 (when we were saving up for the setting to create my custom dream ring), & about a year later my DREAM Old European Cut (OEC) came out & I was just absolutely crushed! We hadn’t bought the setting yet, so I begged & begged & begged MoissaniteCo to return my unused 9mm RB & exchanged it for an OEC Amora (I had to pay an upgrade fee, of course).
My advice is to get what you absolutely adore! It is so worth it, if you can afford it! Also, if moissaniteco’s rendition of your dream setting isn’t spot on, upgrade to custom. Do what is ultimately going to keep you happy, because it’s worth it IMO 🙂

Maybe they’ll exchange it?

@MrsSkeletonKey: Trusting FI with custom would’ve been a nightmare. there are two different versions of my current ring, and i wasnt even sure which one i was going to end up with, haha. so it was a little bit of a surprise, despite choosing my own ring in advance.
my biggest problem is that mine isnt unused. 🙁 i’ve had my ring 8 or 9 months now.
i just sent an inquiry because im so grumpy about it that my attachment to the sentimental value of my current ring is waning. I loved the dream ring so much!
i suppose i should also know how he feels about all of that. It’s not even really a trade up. the new one is cheaper cause it doesnt have a matching band..which i dont really like. but..dream ring…

@futuremrswood25: Yeah, I didn’t figure MoissaniteCo would take a “trade up” on it because it is used, & also because frankly I have this very keen knack at talking people into things that most people can’t (I don’t mean to sound self-important, I really don’t).
But if you have the funds, I think you should upgrade. My OEC center stone is my absolutely favorite part of my ring, & upgrading was the best decision we could have made.
Keep in mind though, that at some point they will probably come out with an ACC (antique cut) cushion amora gem moissanite, & then you might be sad you didn’t wait for that if the dream ring really is perfect in everyway for you, since it’s center is antique cut.
(btw, was the surpise about your ring whether or not it would have milgrain?)

@MrsSkeletonKey: I could honestly care less about the cut. Its the band that I liked. But if they came out with a wedding band, that would be my next crazy phase.
And yes, to miligrain or not to miligrain. Hahaha

Sell your current ring on the diamond bistro and then upgrade, if you feel that strongly.
I doubt Moissco have a trade in policy.

Be happy with what you have. Just remember the dream man is more important then the dream ring.

@futuremrswood25: Damn, that sucks! It’s like they read your mind 8 months too late. Boo. But on the plus side your ring is lovely AND it’s the one your FI gave to you.

Try and sell your setting and get the one you want! Or save up for it and put another stone in your current setting 🙂

i think they’re both gorgeous! at first i was like huh they’re pretty much the same till i saw the sides. I get why that’d be annoying! hope you have luck trying to change it for that one, but if not i think your ring you have now is amazing!!
