Just wanting some opinions / alternatives on the following short list we have made for a moissanite engagement ring. My fiance’s finger is quite small (US 4.5), so we are looking at a 1.25-1.5 center stone on a white gold (or platinum) ring. We are ordering the ring from New Zealand. We are looking at a forever one gem (non H&A) moissanite as that seem’s to be the best that is available currently.
This is her favourite ring thus far:
The cost is $2015USD for a 1.5ct Round Brilliant Forever One in 14k whitegold

I’m wondering what people’s thoughts are. Is there a similar ring os moissaniteco.com that I should be looking at instead.

Moissaniteco.com has really great pricing and what most people do not know, is that if you go the custom route, you can often end up spending less than buying something off the shelf. If you sent them this ring, they would be able to quote you and Im 99% sure they’ll beat the competitions pricing. I had 2 custom rings created by them, start to finish turn around time was 2-4 weeks. They charge a $200 fee [last time I checked] for the creation-but what you should realize is that there are no returns [aside from defects within a relative post purchase time]. I’m looking on their site though 🙂

You could also look at http://shopping.schubachstore.com/. There are bees that had rings designed there as well, and they come highly recommended.

Sorry to be a thread hog-but here is something else to consider. Because that basket has a halo-any band you get will end up covering that pave detail on the bottom [at a minimum]. so in order to see it you’ll have to get a thin mm curved band.

I also would want 8prongs or the classic “crown” prongs to further the vintage feel. That ring also has a pretty high profile which would make it restrictive to wear for marital bling for me (especially if we’re taking 1.5ct on a 4.5 finger). Just my $0.02.
Happy shopping, Groom to Bee!

I prefer the profile of the second one if you are going to go with four prongs, myself, but it is not my ring!
The third one is way too fussy for me, and the rows of pave are more modern than antique. Also, pave if not done well, and even if done well, can add to the maintenance.
