    foxxysoxx :  The cut on the NEO pear is much better than the ones from MoCo. I would personally choose the NEO. No contest. 

    If you go with the NEO, JHollywood can make the ring, which will be easier than mailing the stone to another vendor for setting.  She has several similar settings to your inspirations, you’ll just have to ask which can be modified for a pear.

    foxxysoxx :  I can see what you are saying. But, it is the lighting. It looks like that was shot to show the faceting, so it is lite from the side (see the shadow in the first video). In other light, I don’t see the darkness.  Have a look at this video comparing the SUPERNOVA, F1 and Neo. They all have the same look when lite from the side…

    I agree with glittery. Go with the neo. It seems to have a better cut than c&c

    I like the Neo! I have never seen it, so thanks for sharing.

    I’d honestly look at pear settings for ring inspiration. 4 prong settings aren’t going to work well with a pear shape, because the tip will not be protected, and is more prone to chipping. My personal favorite way I’ve seen pears set is in a bezel, particularly if it has a nice halo around it. 

    My favorite pear setting, ever, is JooJooBee’s for her barely pink moissanite.

    foxxysoxx :  I feel your pain! I’m way to clumsy and use my hands too much for anything pointy. My son called my pear sapphire cabochon my “mean” ring, as I scratched him with the tip several times. So, I reluctantly gave the ring to my pet and child free cousin, since I could not bear to re-set the stone.  I tend to stick with rounded stones and settings (cushion, round, oval) or things that are very low to the hand.

    foxxysoxx :  personally I like the first band but I love skinny bands. My ring is from moissaniteco and I’m obsessed, it’s a forever one 1.5 equivalent. I will attach a picture so you can see how skinny the band is on the eng 161.
