lilsweetie:  I’ve ordered a few settings from jamminggems.com. Another bee recommend them to me. The prongs are pre notched so its pretty easy to do. It only works w exact mm though. (6, 7, 8.5 ect)

Mrs.Fay:  and you set them yourself? what tools do you need?

I’ve also ordered settings from jamminggems.com. The silver pendant setting I got is under $3. They also sell gemstone setting pliers which is what I use to set my stones. It’s pretty easy to set them yourself, and moissanite is a hard enough stone that I don’t think there’s too much of a risk of chipping it.

clockwork247:  lilsweetie:  I did! (Well my husband kinda took it over!) we just used needle nose pliers. That was it! There’s a short video on their website. I haven’t tried with anything but exact measurements yet, sorry!

Here are the two I ordered. The top (larger) one was listed as a “Sparking 1.20 ct 6.85 mm Lovely Fancy Green Round Cut Moissanite VS2” and the smaller one was listed as a “Sparking 0.76 ct 5.95 mm Lovely Fancy Blue Round Cut Moissanite VS2”.

At first glance when I opened up the package the colour of the stones looked the same, but the smaller one is actually blue with a green tinge.  I was hoping for something a bit more blue but I’m happy for the price I paid.

My “fancy light grey” moissy came! It’s 6.5mm and I don’t really remember the price, but under $20. It doesn’t really seem too grey to me 

These are both outside in full sun.

I decided to jump on the bandwagon. I won a “1.13 ct fancy brown round cut”! I just fell in love with the light brown/champagne color! I cannot wait to see it in person. I plan on eventually getting a rose gold setting for a RHR.

I jumped too! I ordered “Loose Moissanite Fiery 1.23 ct 7.15 mm Fancy Blue color VS1 round brilliant cut”. I won the auction w/ a $11.50 bid. ๐Ÿ™‚ 

Can’t wait for it to arrive! 

I’m thinking about setting it as a backup e-ring for vacations/travel etc.
