I’m in Melbourne! I have a solitaire moissanite in yellow gold which I feel like I always post 😂 sorry, I just love it!

however in terms of trends, I see a lottttt of recent e-rings like yours there – white gold, halo, pave. also a lot of princess or cushion cuts rather than round!

My moissy EC & Platinum ring! When I tell people it’s not diamond, they’ve never heard of moissanite before!

thepinkflamingo:  thank you! my stone is 7mm or a 1.25ct equivalent.

nobody I’ve told has heard of moissanite before – I hadn’t even heard of it before reading about it on here! but nobody’s said anything bad about it not being a diamond, and no one’s even noticed that it’s not a diamond! I’ve only actively told close friends and family.

It’s hard to get a clear pic because it’s so sparkly but here’s mine. 1.01 centre cushion and two trapezoids to finish it off. ☺️

I too have a 0.75 carat diamond! I love it, it’s perfect. Fiance has excellent taste 10898229_10205538896625422_86687442589197645_n

I’m seeing a big spike in the number of halo e-rings in Brisbane.  When I first started looking at e-rings about 5 years ago there were mostly solitaires in the window of jewellers, now there’s always at least half halos.  I have no complaints, I have a halo!  I’ve never seen another oval diamond in person though. Definitely a lot more cushion cuts around too which is great as they are such a pretty cut.  

Interestingly I was in an estate jewellers today and asked the owner if he came across many moissys and he said they are so rare in Brisbane he’d only ever seen one. Actually he was very surprised I even knew what they were.

PorcelainBelle:   Your ring is drop dead gorgeous and so elegant.  I would love to see a pic of it on your hand.  If you don’t mind, could you share the specs?

AussieEncore:  For reference, the ring is sized at a 4.5 but needs to be sized down. The centre is a 1.08 ct equiv and the sides are .27 ct equiv each. The band is 2.5mm wide, I think I might have it shaved down to 2mm though because I feel like with a wedding band it’s going to feel like too much on my finger, as silly as that sounds.

Wow, a lot of huge (and gorgeous!) stones. I was under the impression Aussies are usually quite a bit more low-key when it comes to marital bling compared to the US average (and even that being somewhere around 0.5ct if compared nation wide, not the “weddingbee average”)?
