@JazzyGemini:  Yeah, it does sit pretty high… but I’m so used to it by now that I don’t even notice.

@mepayne:  Go the second hand route so you get more for your money.

Diamondbistro.com has great prices. Ebay too.

OP, I think you should go for the ring of your dreams. I don’t know about you, but if I had to settle for something other than my dream right for a couple hudred bucks less, it would always feel like the one that got away and I would regret it.

I see it would be $200 over budget to order the ring you want. Here’s what I have done and would do in your position. Order a loose moissanite from moissaniterus on eBay. He’s a highly praised seller around a couple jewelry forums and is known for having white, high quality stones. He charges $199 for a 6.5mm round instead of $275 from MoissaniteCo.

Then contact MoCo and tell them you would like the semi-mount instead of the full ring, and you will mail them the stone for setting. Both times I have done this, I’ve been charged less for the semi-mount than the listed cost of the full ring minus the cost of the stone. For example, if the cost of a full ring was $1500 (including a $500 center stone), you might be able to order the semi-mount only for $900 instead of $1000. I don’t know why it works that way, but again, it’s happened to me twice. They don’t charge for setting, so the only additional cost will be shipping the stone with insurance ($12 for me, might be more from Canada). 

Add in any additional cost over $700 out of your pocket (because marriage is a team effort, and there is nothing wrong with both parties contributing), and you will have your dream ring 🙂

Of course if you weren’t that attached to it, I see nothing wrong with going the simpler route and just choosing something cheaper, but I wanted to share an outside-the-box idea.

@JazzyGemini:  Men… Undecided

In that case, my only input is that I love the prongs on this one: Sol350

I own a 0.75ct Ring Bearer ring from moissyco, and many people have commented saying it looks closer to 1ct. I had the chance to compare it to diamonds at a store, and to me it visually looks closest to the 0.9ct diamonds.

This one on sale has 1.0ct equivalent and 3 sidestones on each side http://www.moissaniteco.com/round-moissanite-channel-engagement-ring-036ct-p-17720.html

This one is on sale with an oval http://www.moissaniteco.com/designer-inspired-moissantie-solitaire-ring-p-17635.html

This one is at the top of the budget, on sale with a 1.25ct equivalent http://www.moissaniteco.com/round-moissanite-knife-edge-floral-leaf-solitaire-ring-p-16443.html

@JazzyGemini:  I did a quick search, I know this isn’t exactly what you want and I don’t know this company but I found this moissanite  for $599:http://www.moissanitejewelryshop.com/index.php/moissanite-engagement-rings/moissanite-engagement-06-5-mm-1-25-cttw-14k-white-gold-65756.htmlhttp://www.moissanitejewelryshop.com/index.php/moissanite-engagement-rings/moissanite-engagement-06-5-mm-1-25-cttw-14k-white-gold-65756.htmlthis for $540:

 

MOISSANITE ENGAGEMENT RING 06.50MM=1CT 14K White GoldI found this on Pompeil3: It’s actually all real diamonds but I1-I2 clarity and $549 so prolly won’t look so great..http://www.pompeii3.com/p-4384-70ct-vintage-diamond-engagement-ring-14k-white-gold.aspx  although some of their stuff must be decent or they couldn’t stay in business.

I’d check Shopnbc.com and JTV.com too as they both sell moissanite.

Good luck!

I can’t give you exactly what youre looking for, but I just wanted to agree with a PP who mentioned that moissanite tends to look larger because of the cut of the stone. I have a .75 equivalent moissanite and everyone assumes it’s more than 1ct and the jeweller that set my stone said it measured to be similar to a .9 ct stone. Here’s a pic to give you an idea of a .75 moissanite on a 5.5 finger because it might mean you could get your dream ring if you get a slightly smaller stone. My setting is a diamond one from another store but it looks similar to one of the ones you posted.
