@raychul13:  Where are you ordering from? I personally would not get a ring that was platnium coated just because replating would be expensive.  Can you order the ring see it in person and then if you decide to keep it send it back and have them resize it? That or take a picture of the ring to a jeweler and have it custom made!

@raychul13:  do you have a picture you can show us? because silver may not be very sturdy if you are planning on wearing it daily.

Only you can decide what level of risk that you and your SO are willing to take.  However, I personally would not be at all comfortable making that type of significant purchase from an unknown seller online, given the factors that are still unknown.

@raychul13:  If they want your business they should do whatever it takes to please you. I agree with @emstar168:  though. Silver may not stury enough for daily wear. Have you looked on MoissaniteCo?

I would pass.  You need it sized and they are the best ones to do that.  You also need to be able to return it if it is not what you want.  Too big of a risk For me.

While you are calling, do ask if they can copy or come close to the design in metal that you would prefer.  I just had custom rings made and it really was a good value with a reputable jeweler.

@raychul13:  here is a thread from a fellow bee who got her ring from moissanite outlet (Ebay) – looks like hers did not hold up well from her comment at the bottom. No idea if hers is silver/platinum plated or not, but it was a halo.

Here is a ring with a similar gallery (not sure if that is the correct term – side view) but it is a cushion cut shape: http://www.moissaniteco.com/cushion-cut-moissanite-halo-engagement-ring-p-8283.html
