i know that this question has probably been asked a billion times, but i can’t help asking…
i have a very antique engagement ring that is a family heirloom from my side of the family. at first, i was completely in love with it and was happy to have something on my finger that has been in my family for a very long time. however, as the months have passed, i have decided that i would be much happier with a more modern and traditional engagement ring. the current engagement ring i have now is a 1 carat ruby flanked by 13 smaller rubies and six diamonds set in platinum. i asked my mom if i could reset the rubies into diamonds and she sort of freaked out at the idea…i think it’s because it IS a gorgeous ring AND has been in the family for years so i understand her reaction. so with that said, i backed off and i am now looking at different rings.
i really can’t imagine spending a lot of money on an diamond engagement ring because i feel slightly guilty (okay, really guilty) that i have a really gorgeous ring already. so, i’ve been looking at diamond alternatives and have been toying between asha diamonds and moissanite. i have gone to moissaniteco.com and have searched their ‘solitaire’ sections…i am very confused at how you would go about ordering a ring from there. or maybe i’m being blind/dumb?
so i guess my question is, is there a way to buy an already set amora moissanite/forever brilliant moisannite solitaire engagement ring that has a ‘near flawless’ color? i looked here and can see the ordering options but it can’t be THAT easy right? and if it is…how do you select an amora moissanite or the clarity and cut of your moissanite? i am so confused!… and what is the difference between forever brilliant moissanite and amora moissanite? is there one you prefer over the other? pros? cons?
thank you SO much for your help. i know i rambled a little bit and i know i probably worded my question very oddly. but whatever help you can provide… it is very much appreciated. xo
