@RastaCook:   hi I see no one else has replied to you yet. I do not have a moissanite ring but I will be getting one when the amoras restock. However I have been researching and lurking on these boards for a very long time so I may be able to help u. 

 

Moissaniteco.com seems to be the favorite around here  they have some amazing settings and u can also customize ur rings.

 

The last time I checked moissaniteco did have a few amora rounds in stock but were above 2.00 ct.

 

I wouldn’t waist the extra money on the high pressure enganced rings from btd and yes their settings are pricey. Moissyco has a lot of similar settings for less.

 

Ordering a setting and a loose stone from two different companies then having a jeweler set it would be a lot of hassle and probably more expensive than doing it all in one place. The only time I would say it might be cheaper is if u were buying a loose diamond. 

 

I have heard multiple times that white metals tend to look best with moissy and that it makes the stone appear whiter. I think the matter of diamond side stones vs moissy side stones is a matter of preference also I know that moissanite can only be cut so small and for that reason diamonds are used. I doubt it would be obvious that  the side stones are different because they are so small however if u choose a setting with larger side stones I’d go with moissy to ensure a perfect match.

 

I like 6 prongs for round stones it helps keep the round look of the stone  and looks elegant. But again its a matter of preference. 

 

I have small hands size 4 finger. If a band is too thick it will over power. So a dainty micro pave would be beautiful. A shared prong band is a safer option and is less likely to loose a stone. A simple solitaire is classic and elegant.

I forgot to mention that the forever brilliant enhanced moissanite are beautiful too and more white than regular moissy and cost less than amora. They are available right now and you won’t loose ur c&c warrenty like u would with the amora enhancement. Goodluck hope helped!

@mrssloan2013:  I’ve been meaning to ask and forgot why we lose our warranty if we get the Amora? I have an Amora and a FB and to be quite honest, I like the FB better. I think they’re both just about the same. However, I just don’t understand the fact that the warranty doesn’t cover the Amora.

@Kingbee2012:  It is because the Amora isn’t enhanced by any company affliated with the patent holders of moissanite (C&C). The Amora is enhanced through BTD, and since C&C cannot back the treatment that a 3rd party gives to their stone it voids the original warranty.

@FutureDrAtkins:  Thank you VERY much for this info. I just ordered a set with a FB and I already have one, to which I like a lot. In all honesty, I don’t see that much difference between the two and really…who looks long enough to noticed anything. As long as we love our stone that we look at ALL the time, I think it’s all that matters. I’ve realized that getting the size that fits your hand just right is what matters because it will be ‘you’ if this makes sense.
