@TurningAProfit: Your ring looks gorgeous! Where did you purchase your stone? Are you still happy with your choice? Have you noticed some rainbow effects since you’ve been wearing it?

@Waves56: Thank ou so much for sharing about your experience. That is very helpful! What are your thoughts on the Amora gem? Do you have any?

jayrock :  Just thought I’d jump in here in case you’re still wondering! The store did open up, it’s called Moissy Fine Jewellery. I actually went to the store with my boyfriend a couple months ago, the lady that runs it is very nice and helpful, does not pressure you at all. I just went so I could physically see some moissanites(specifically Harro Gem), and they have C&C, Harro Gem, a house brand and I think Neo. We ended up ordering from Mymoissanite.com (creators of Harro gem). Hope this helps!

gamechanger :  Hi! Are you still loving your Harro? I really want a cushion or radiant Harro and am also trying to decide on cut. Did you get brilliant or crushed ice? Would love to see a pic and hear an update. Thank you in advance!!

waves56 :  Hi! I also want a Harro and will be having Lauren B make my ring. How was your experience? Do you still love the Harro? Does it look diamond-like, and are you happy? Would love to see pics as I might be your ring copy cat!! Thanks so much!!

jayleighday :  Hey girl! I saw you commented on this thread…while I don’t have a Lauren B ring, I do have a 2ct equivalent Harro elongated cushion. It’s very pretty! It’s just sparkly and rainbowy enough for me. I’ve gotten a lot of compliments on it since I got it in late August. I work with a bunch of guys and even they have commented on how cool it is. I am terrible at taking pictures of it…it’s much prettier in person. Here’s a photo or two!

GymnastQt009 :  omg you are an angel. This is exactly what I want!! Well, I actually keep going back and forth between the elongated cushion and the radiants! Did you get crushed ice or brilliant? Do you think it looks super fired like the C&C moissy’s Or more diamond like? Your ring is to die for – I’m so excited to see something so similar to what I’m looking at. I feel like all the moissanite posts are so old so totally unrelatable to the quality of moissanite now. Thanks again for responding to this!!

jayleighday :  No problem! I love sharing my ring haha. I have a diamond engagement ring (cluster halo with a split shank) and this is a right hand ring. I saw all the posts on here and the Harro gem Instagram and I decided I just had to have one haha. I have a crushed ice cut. I was debating between crushed ice and an antique cut and ultimately decided on the crushed ice. Lauren B had very pretty rings! I follow them on Instagram as well. To me, it looks pretty diamond like but obviously not exactly like it. I haven’t compared them side by side. I really do love it for what it is though.

GymnastQt009 :  thanks for responding. I have a 1.25 ct round brilliant diamond ring in a very simple thin platinum setting and have always wanted a cushion or radiant in yellow gold pave. More bling! And also wanted to go a bit bigger. Just curious if it is going to look 1000% different than my diamond or not. That’s basically my biggest question, if the crushed ice look similar to diamonds? I love them for what they are too (especially the price)! BUt I have heard the crushed ice is supposed to look a little more diamond like. I have been doing a crazy amount of online research and there is just not much out there on these newer stones. Plus nowhere to see it in person. Thanks for sharing your thoughts! Again – I am drooling over your ring.

jayleighday :  I think the consensus is that the crushed ice looks more diamond like. I think one of the reasons is because the Harro crushed ice throws less rainbows and more white flashes. I haven’t seen F1 stones but I find my stone isn’t too rainbowy. It’s a perfect balance in my opinion. I love it for different reasons than my engagement ring. Diamonds and moissanite are both so pretty! Maybe you could purchase the stone from Harro and if you love it send it to Lauren B to set. If I remember correctly Harro has a great return policy.

jt267 :  I’ve gone to this place too. She is super sweet and patient. She carried a large amount of rings and different designs. I find her prices were a bit high compared to My Ring Come True (also from Toronto). Ring Come True just started so she doesn’t have too much on hand to compare but can order them.

Hi bees! I have been struggling with the same problem Harro, Neo, C&C, etc etc.

I have decided on a 2 ct center with 1.3mm round halo/band. Only problem I having is getting a Harro H&A center or Neo H&A center. I saw them both in person and like an idiot, I forgot to take videos or pictures of both stones. I noticed that the Neo was more splintery in the center and the harro had chunkier facets slower burst of fire vs the NEO. I don’t want to go down again to compare cause it is far from me (about an hour) so I am wondering if I should just suck it up. Anyone by chance has a video or pictures of  a Harro and a Neo??? Wish someone could just line up all the moissanites side by side. Anyways, thanks in advance! 

By the way, the place I am ordering from is from Ring Come True, based in Toronto. Her name is Shir and she is so nice and amazing with awesome prices. Only issue I have is the CAD rendering. It doesn’t appear how the ring is suppose to look like but she assures me it will. The extra metal is for the jeweler to work with. As for warranty this is what she wrote me: “The stones themselves come with a warranty from the manufacturer that covers discolouration or loss of brilliance for the life of the the stone. I warranty the setting for the first year against any manufacturing defects. If a stone becomes loose to no fault of your own we will tighten it no problem or replace a side stone if it falls out.” She requires a $200 downpayment to get the rendering going and you pay 50% of the ring cost to get production going and the final 50% once complete (pick up or delivery). My total ring costs 2600+tax CAD for 1.3mm round halo in 14k white gold in either a Harro or NEO. $200 more if you want to go up 2.5cts and $200 more if you want 18K (gold is currently expensive in Canada).

Here Here is what I’m getting -Cathedral setting just with the moissanite lowered a bit more (her design)

 

Here is what I am getting but with 1.3mm halo (this one is 1.5mm with a 4ct center) This is on her instagram page: RingComeTrue

And this is how her rendering looks like for this ring she has previously made but with the specs I’ve asked. (This rendering has 1.5m melee moissanites, she hasn’t sent me back the one with 1.3mm instead)

 

Hope this helps people if they are shopping in Canada. 

Harrro or NEO I liked her orginal 3ct Amora she had a while back the Harro she showed me kinda behaves like it.

If you saw the Harro H&A in comparison to the NEO Diamond Cut, the reason the NEO looked more splintery is because it’s a round brilliant, not H&A. I’ve heard some unfavorable things about NEO from more than one Bee. I’d definitely stick with Harro given the choice between those two. 

If I could choose from any vendor, it would be a toss up between Amora Gem, August Vintage, and the new AGS 000 from Moissanite Co.
