I highly recommend Joseph Schubach jeweller’s. My fiance worked with them and he is beyond impressed with how much Beth did. She really ‘put’ herself into designing my ring, and the whole experience, in his words, was flawless and simple. 

They have settings you can choose, you can even do a semi custom design or go full blown custom! No matter what, their prices are great, and their attention to detail is phenomenal.

Custom with David Klass of course . Or you could buy a semi mount from Amcordesign.com, they have a large selection, great prices, excellent customer service, and return policy.

ringseeker:  We purchased ours from BTD and I found a setting online that I really liked. We took the stone and pics of the setting to a local jeweler and had it made there. Was also nice because now I can get it checked at a physical location and we trust the shop 🙂 Good luck! A lot of great styles out there! You could look at moissaniteco.com to browse the settings too.

Custom rings can save you money too!

ringseeker:  There have been many bee’s that go for designer settings and set them with Amora’s. You could always go the route that we did. We tried on Tacori’s at jewelers, found one that we fell in love with, and then found it on EBay next week (paid 1400 for the setting rather than the 5k+ retail for a Platinum setting). 

My Amora gem is getting set this week in the setting, but i’ll attach a picture of the setting with just a CZ in it (that’s how it came). We aren’t orphans, but are also paying the wedding entirely ourselves and really appreciated the bargain we got on my dream ring 🙂

Get a feel from her of the TYPE of ring she likes. It doesn’t need to be exact…just pics of rings she has seen that make her swoon. Come back with 3 or 4 and post them. Then let the games begin

My diamond halo setting was custom made by David klass and I have an amora gem ultra center stone. David is absolutely amazing to work with and his prices are outstanding. My setting is 18k white gold with .45 carats of G Vs1 halo diamonds. I highly recommend him! 

I also want to recommend Amcordesign.com, they have tons of semi mounts that are very nice. They have great prices and customer service.

I second going with David Klass. He is amazing! His prices are great, his rings are absolutely amazing… He just did a ring using my ruby and it’s better than I imagined. I’ll be using him many more times in the future and highly recommend him to everyone!

I purchased a designer setting from a local jeweler and had the Amora placed in there.  I went with Verragio, which you might want to check out as it seems in line with her style.

ringseeker:  The don’t sell just the settings by themselves, but if you find a setting you like, you can send the link from MCo to Amcor or Schubachs and they would be able to give you a quote on the setting, and you could also send them your amora and have them set it so you have a finished ring. 

As far as the side stones go, I would pay extra for diamond over moissanite. (And have, twice). They are simply more durable, and much easier to replace if one falls out. Most jewelers won’t touch moissy stones (side or not) with a ten foot pole, sadly. Plus, they tend to look a little better, IMO.

ringseeker:  I’m not sure what PP means about a ten foot pole…first jeweler I went to had no problem setting my Amora. moreover, if you end up buying a Tacori setting retail you have to send your stone to Tacori to have it set, and I know for a fact they will set an Amora or moissanite no problem

I personally would go with diamonds as a side stone, they are definitely much easier to replace as any jeweler can do that should one fall out. Also you will just have a lot more setting options not limiting yourself to moissy settings  

She seems to like the peek a boo stones in the sides of the setting, so definitely look at Verragio and Tacori as they both have settings with those. 

and if you are worried about the Amora being “believable” I encourage you to order one and look at it in person. Better than diamond sells one of those tweezer temporary settings so you can see what it looks like in a ring. If you don’t like it you can return it. I have the Ultra H&A and it is gorgeous. I’m not trying to pass it off as a diamond, but nobody would/does look twice. It’s really beautiful. And if you go on the message boards on Better Than Diamond, you’ll find many stories of Amora owners taking them to the jewelers and the jewelers not realizing they arent diamonds until they realize they are almost too perfect under magnification
