 lualualua :  What I did was found an insanely expensive vintage ring I liked, too, and then had Joseph Schubach’s in AZ recreate it. I live in MN and did it all via phone and emails.

Here’s the ring I loved:

And here’s the ring they made with an OEC moissy. The photo is from their video so it’s a bit blurry. I didn’t have them carry the diamonds all around the band like the original.

lualualua :  Very pretty ring! First off, I would encourage you to go and try on rings, maybe with your sister. Make sure you like the style and shape you think you do. Maybe try a store that also carries estate jewelry (ie: not a chain store). 

As for the ring you linked, it’s a Art Deco, with a round Old European Cut diamond (a vintage cut for round diamonds that has chunkier facets like the one on the left, vs a modern round brilliant cut on the right) 

It appears that it has french cut pave with an engraved band. 

There are OEC moissanites, but I’m not sure they’re still being produced (someone more familiar, correct me if I’m wrong). You could have a setting custom made (check out David Klass or Etsy) and have an OEC moissanite set in it. 

Check out JYB Jewels on Etsy, she seems to have a smiliar style. 

 

There’s TONS of info out there about stones, settings, etc. Try to decide what you like (ON your hand) and go from there. Good luck!

other details on your ring include wheaten engraving with milgrain edging, what looks like claw shaped corner set prongs, with surprise stones set into the head and prongs, a non-cathedral set head, with a very open gallery.

That is either an INCREDIBLY poorly cut OEC, or an upside down rose cut. I very much think it’s the latter. OEC’s have high crowns, small tables (~40-50%) and open culets. This stone has almost no crown, a ~90% table, and no culet. Rose cuts have flat bottoms and domed tops.

The ring is beautiful though. I think you’d do best with a rose cut moissy – get it solo online wherever you can find one, then work with someone like Schubach’s or David Klass to custom make the setting.

If you search “rose cut moissanite” on Etsy, you’ll find lots of pretty examples.

lualualua :  I did the same as PP (also basing my design on rings from Erstwhile) and bought an OEC moissanite from Joseph Schubach and sent it to David Klass to design and set in platinum. You get the best of both worlds- a forever ring that looks vintage but doesn’t cost $10k!

I’ll do the same as ButternutPoppy  and share my inspo:

And my ring:

Working with David was great because I didn’t want a straight up replica, I had some minor tweaks I wanted to make. We went back and forth a bit on the CAD and I found advice here on the bee super useful. It was $2200 for the setting, but it would have been less if we hadn’t done platinum.

If you’re not looking to make a custom ring but to find something similar to the one you linked, I’d look on Etsy for OECs, vintage, wheat patterns, and claw prongs. Good luck and keep us posted!

I would highly recommend moissaniteco! I love my ring from them, ultimately i decided to go with a ring that they already made the eng440. Their instagram literally has so many examples of all the styles they already offer. Before i picked my ring i was really interested in having a moissanite ring made to look like a more expensive ring i had found. All you have to do is email them with pictures of the ring you want to recreate and give them all the info of what you want like if you want white or yellow gold. What size moissanite you want and stuff like that. If youre unsure of how big you want your center stone to be, their website lets you print out a size chart where you can cut out center stone sizes to put on your finger and see how big it will look on you!
