I can’t really read your post. Could you type straight into the text box or somehow just have normal text?

I’ve started the hunt for an e ring (eek!!!) – I want a custom Moissy with matching band. I’ve looked at MoissaniteCo, Schubach & BTD. Have I missed anyone? 

 

Key things:

must ship to Australia
Create delicate prongs. I feel MoissaniteCo don’t quite hit the mark with this but maybe it’s just the photos I’ve seen. If you’ve have a MCo e ring with delicate prongs then I’d love to see it.

 

Where I need help:

Photos of your e ring with delicate prongs and where it was made.
Your experiences with MoissaniteCo, Schubach and BTD (both good and bad reviews). If you had to recommend one, who would it be and why?
How have your Moissy rings faired (fared) after 5+ years of wear?

 

Thanks in advance Bees xx

Why do you want delicate prongs, and how delicate do you mean? Bear in mind the prongs are really what are holding onto your ring and delicate prongs are more likely to bend or even break and you can risk losing your stone, so you need to make sure the prong size is proper for the stone size.

 

A good jeweler should always try to make sure there are enough prongs of the right size to firmly secure the stone you go with.

 The term you’re looking for is “claw prongs”.

I have a MoCo ring with claw prongs. My husband didn’t have any issues with MoCo when he ordered the ring, but he ordered a standard setting, didn’t make any changes, and we didn’t try to return anything. So our personal experience was great, but they have been known to be a bit shady (to say the least). I love my rings, but don’t think I would do a custom project with them.

ETA: I think MoCo offers a setting very similar to that one that you want including claw prongs.

I have no idea on where they ship but a couple more companies are Charles & Colvard. And Fire & Brilliance. But I will say this year is mine and my husbands 10 year wedding anniversary and we’ve decided to upgrade my rings and after researching for a week straight and looking at thousands of rings, we went with MoCo and actually just placed our order yesterday.

My ring was custom made  by Schubach’s back in 2013 and still looks absolutely fantastic. Their craftsmanship is out of this world, but it does come at a pretty penny. For example, I was comparison shopping for a new custom setting… Schubach’s quoted me $2400 and David Klass quoted me $1400. Having pieces from both jewelers, I think they are both exceptional – but if it came down to a $1k difference I’d go with what was cheaper since I know they are both high quality.
