dollmann :  Check out Blue Nile’s build your own ring option. That will give you an idea on the cost of a diamond ring with the qualities you are looking for.

There’s so much to advise you on. Firstly do you know what kind of cushion you want? ….and old cut chunky faceted one (in which case check out jewels by grace, good old gold – esp their august cut cushion and other estate sellers selling OMCs etc). If you’d like a more modern cut which tend to be the elongated crushed ice look then there are lots of online sellers who offer good service. James Allen and blue Nile being two – but do go to the pricescope forum to get advice on your final choice as they can ensure you get the best preforming diamond for your budget. 

Do you have a preference over clarity or colour? The simple solitaire setting you like is a bonus as it means more of your budget for the diamond.  4 prongs will keep the slightly squarer look, 6 will round it off a bit.

2.03 carat cushion, Triple excellent, VS2. I’d rather not post the exact cost on here but it was a lot more than I would have imagined when I first started looking at rings. You can go to any jeweler’s website and search by stone to get an idea what the size you’re hoping for will cost. The setting won’t be much if you really just want a plain gold band–mine was only about 500.

Check out James Allen or Blue Nile. The real cost for the ring is always the stone itself. If you want a stone with higher quality specs (clarity, color, etc.), then it will cost more. If you go to the James Allen/Blue Nile websites, you can choose an exact setting and specific stone, and you can set parameters for what kind of stone you want, or the price range you are looking for. That way you can get exact pricing for a number of rings you are interested in!

Also – I know you said you weren’t picky about the other details of your ring, but the 4 c’s are important if you’re buying a diamond! If you want your diamond to sparkle, cut and clarity is really important. Otherwise, your stone can look dull. But, having a better quality stone makes the price go up, so you have to consider that, too!

Also, sometimes, if you purchase the stone and setting from the same vendor, they’ll give you a discount on the setting. But again, echoing other Bees, you really have to narrow down the specs of the stone first. For example, antique cut vs modern cut can make quite a difference in price. Once you’ve selected what kind of cushion you want, what size, and what specs, then the setting shouldn’t be too pricey if all you want is a really plain band. ๐Ÿ™‚ I believe the plain 14k white gold band I ordered from Wink when I bought my Amora Gem was around $500 usd. It was called the Kanata setting.

MammaPants :  of course! I guess it was $1365 tho. I was close. It’s kinda hard to visualize what you’re getting with moissaniteco because they’re SOOOO customizable, which is cool. But the bee really helped me narrow down what I want. This is exactly what I have.

 I got my 7mm moissanite in this white gold setting with a matching half eternity wedding band from Zhedora on Etsy for $840 and I couldn’t be happier with it!
