- Wedding: January 2015
So, we started ring shopping yesterday. It was his idea to go and look for a watch, then once we were there, he brought me over to the rings! I went into the ring thing thinking I wanted a pink or canary cushion center in a halo setting. We looked at canary diamonds, pink sapphire, clear moissanite, diamond centers. We focused exclusively on halos.
Then we went to another mall and I tried on few in one store and then asked to try a solitaire since I hadn’t tried one on yet. I fell in love with a 2ct princess cut solitaire set in a 3mm white gold setting. I didn’t want to take it off. But, is was $26,000!
He picked out his wedding band so I know exactly which one to get when I need to.
So, this morning he asked me to show him the moissanite website. We both really loved the moissanites we saw in person but they were way overpriced compared to mo.com and not the settings I would even consider.
I found the identical setting and stone size of the $26k ring so we ordered it! I can’t believe I ended up picking something completely opposite of what I originally thought I wanted but now I can’t wait to get it.
It’s sol224, 7 mm, 2.2 ct princess cut set in white gold. I’ll go and try different bands on when I get it to see what I like but in the jewelry store I tried on a diamond band and it looked beautiful.
