Gabriel and Co has a ring that looks identical to this. A family member has it. I will try to find a pic.

I went with David Klass for mine and he was incredible. I have tried with Zhedora on Etsy before and she was abysmal, the ring she sent me looked nothing like it should have and it took forever and even longer to get out out m back. My friend recently got one custom made from Camilla and is very happy with it. I really really recommend David Klass though. His prices and workmanship are just unmatched. He also used better mixins with his white gold you can leave it unplated and it will stay white. I really love the oval from moissaniteco, it’s cheaper than most others but that is not a reflection of quality. It’s incredible, the most beautiful stone I’ve ever seen. It’s cut how a diamond would be so it’s sparkler than an oval diamond would be but about the same as a high quality round diamond. I was super duper picky and sceptical but David Klass knocked it out of the park. I can’t recommend him enough, he’s my jeweler for life. You can check out examples of his work on Instagram, here’s my wedding set he made for me. I’m constantly blown away with how every tiny prong and detail is just perfection.

For a custom ring, I’d work with David Klass for that setting and once you get CAD — post them over on RockyTalky on Pricescope. Just don’t ask about the moissy on that board. 

Ovals are a bit tough in moisssanite as they are not cut to be very similar to an actual diamond…look at the belly facets especially.  In modern ovals, I like the SuperNova and Amora Gem Oval. I don’t recommend C&C as they are very inconsistent. Old cuts are generally more successful than moderns ones if you want it to pass for a diamond. If you ike old cuts, have a look at Love Affair Diamonds ovals (hubba hubba) and JYBJewels on Etsy.


Are you sure you want a moissy? That ring style looks amazing with a colored gemstone. What about a sapphire or spinel? 


Comparing Oval Diamond to Moissy, look at the faceting
