michellelynn9175 :  I love that story about your Grandmother! My Gram has passed too and I inherited her love of jewelery. She would sit and stare at her hand admiring her rings and every time I catch myself doing the same thing I think of her.

I have to admit, I’m afraid you’re going to be disappointed with moissanite. I have LED and halogen lighting in my house and every night when it gets dark the rainbow fire starts big time. I’ve grown to love it but you seem so dead against the colored fire aspect. And my stone is an old cut which minimizes that. You’re looking at a modern cut.

Maybe you would feel better if you saw one in person. How about finding a place with the best return policy that makes it easy to send a stone back, then buy a round 8mm moissanite  from neo or diamelia or whoever has non custom stones, and live with it for a few days before returning it. Then you’ll really know if it’s something you can be happy with.

Where is your diamond from? Do they have an upgrade policy? Maybe you could upgrade the size a bit now and then again in 5 or 10 years.

michellelynn9175 :  I’m glad you were able to make the changes you needed to make to keep the relationship working. But you’re still very young and I’d bet this won’t be your last upgrade seeing how much you love jewelry. I’ve been with my partner 17 years…lost my first 5 stone diamond wedding band, replaced it with a cheap tension set titanium and sapphire ring…that broke so I went without for a couple years, then I got my tension set diamond ring…then I bought the large moissanite thinking it would scratch the itch and I would stop thinking about owning a big diamond, but no…I’m still thinking about how I can upgrade my diamond to a 1 carat ACA from whiteflash some day. embarassed

I guess my point is I don’t think we’ll ever be quite satisfied! 

Maybe you can buy a cheap eBay moissanite to get a feel for it if you’re not able to see one locally. I’m off to play miniature golf with my son.

michellelynn9175:  harro gem is phenom his color is consisten e/f/g send him a pic of the cut and he will copy it… his 4 h polytype doenst change color , no green, just most diamondlike color everrrr… i have 4 stones from him the color is way better than any moissy ever.. and his customer service is that of david klass as for other venders some of them get their moissy from him and use their own name.. im a stickler when it comes to color because that is , to me, what will ruin a stone.. his color is gorgeous and diamondlike more than any i have see.  most of these vendors are marking their stones up so much, that it is really sad.. from photos jyb cut looks fantastic identical to old cut diamonds havnet seen in person though to comment on color, hope its good… i just ordered one

If you’re still looking, Zen Moissanite carries elongated cushions (crushed ice look as well as a standard elongated).

Here’s a video of their crushed ice. It’s very similar to the Harro gem if you ask me (but with better prices)! I kept going back and forth between harro gem sellers until I found their Etsy shop! The owner was very responsive and everything went very smoothly.

Zen, Harro, Zaya, Classique, Eternity, and I am sure there are others. All of these “brands” are all coming from the same Chinese Moissanite source.

I know this is so old but I wanted to know what you decided?? I am in your exact position right now going maaaddddd. Helllppppp lol

now I’m reading Schubach is overpriced and color is off?? Noooooo I’ve been talking to them for months! 😭

I started looking at Zen, but now I don’t know! I am having a custom setting done at Schubach with a quote about to come out, but if it’s super overpriced then wtf! 

Where do I go! 

I have been talking to victor canera also for a setting, but I still have no stone! I have tried swaying myself off of the ACC but I really just can’t. Once you get sucked into the OMC/ACC going back to brilliant cut is just weird LOL.

im also doing a halo, but very small. I think the antique cut looks amazing with one.

Hi! I have zaya (1/2 eternity straight baguettes), my ering is neo cusion and supernova tapered baguettes. I’ve not had the zaya very long (a couple of weeks) but I think they look as great as my ering, which I have had for a year. The other ring prictured is princess cut diamonds. 
I have nothing but praise for Jen and the work she does is fantastic. 

I hope this helps a little.

michellelynn9175 :  LOL I was actually going to PM you. Thanks for your response atleast I’m not the only one going Nuts. I just posted a whole subject about this looool! 

I need help!  I’m going to follow you. I’m going to look this place up and email them. I’ve seen them on IG. They do custom? They can get the stone themselves yes? They get Harro only? Or where do they get their stones?  

If you read my thread you’ll see what Schubach is doing. I’m totally lost now. Sorry but I’m not paying 2k just bc you’re saying it’s “more to cut a DEF color stone”  that is so weird to me. Harro is EF no???? All of his stones are right?

i looked at Zen yesterday and I looks like a loose stone would be around 1800-2000. That seems high too. If I order straight from Jason with a Harro it’s around 1200-1400 sooooo once again I don’t understand the price difference for the same size ACC. Is Zen superior to Harro?

Im the same way with all these different jewelers. I have quotes from a lot of different places but I like victor canera so far, just a little bit more expensive than I’d hope and once again I will have to have the stone sent to him. I’m going to check out raven since you’re speaking highly of them. I’m just ready to change my entire set up since this is becoming such a problem. I just really love the ACC! But why would I want a yellow one? Lol. Idk maybe some people like that look since it’s Antique. But all the ACC videos I’ve seen were white and beautiful. 

I admire your goals. Trust me I’ve been researching and changing things for almost a year!!! Lol! Every time my bf is like ummm are you going to email me the link to order your ring yet? And I just look at him and say ummm i changed it again and he just rolls his eyes and sighs hahahah 

for real I think this is why we should leave it up to the men to just go pick something out πŸ˜‚

michellelynn9175 :  hahaha this is almost exactly my thought process for the past few months!! I’m also probably going with a Harro Gem too. I’ve been going back and forth between a brilliant cut and a crushed ice though. I do hear alot of vendors say the brilliant cut is more “diamond like” but in videos crushed ice significantly looks more diamond like to me!!! I desperately wish I could see a better side by side comparison in person. 

May I ask why you didn’t just source your own stone and have True Gem custom make the ring??? I think thats the path I’m going to take. I want to order a Harro and have them set it. True Gem crushed ice looks a bit too opaque to me in their videos. 

I’ve followed Raven on instagram too but their prongs just don’t look dainty enough for my liking. I need to do more ring stalking on their page to check our their work. I’m also in California so it would be easy to go in person to see the stones myself. Its definitely a plus to have the vendor source the stone for you since Harro is only going to send them their best pieces (I think?) I gave my SO all my ring options so I just want him to pull the trigger already so I can stop thinking about it!
