If you’re okay with ordering online…What about MoissaniteCo.com? They work in palladium (and moissanite obviously lol), are reasonably priced, and have good reviews. My ring is from them but I haven’t received it yet to give you my own opinion.

 

I believe it takes like 2-3 weeks for them to make the ring and then send it out OR you can look in their sale section and get it within a week because all they have to do is resize it.

@Arrowchan:  Oooh that’s really pretty! I love the six prongs! So you’re going for a solitaire then?

I like that trellis solitaire. Mind you, if it’s becoming too much of a stress to find something within the timeframe, I’d suggest getting a cheapie silver (or whatever metal that works for you) band, elope (and have fun!), and then do the ring search post-elopement with much more time on your hand (no pun intended 🙂

you could try sundarigems on etsy – a few bees have rings from her and they are beautiful! very dainty, and she uses diamonds, sapphires and moissanites for center stones.

@Arrowchan:  argh, so sorry you’re going through this. I think anytime you are looking outside the box (ie special metal paladium vs gold or diamond sim vs diamond) from a private jeweler, it may be an  issue, especially if you can’t drop mega bucks.I’m sure there are exceptions but finding those exceptional jewelers would be challenging.

Think you got some good advice above. You may also want to look at weddingbee classified, diamond bistro, ebay has tons of moissanite rings, jtv.com has some too. From what I’ve seen you can get alot of bang for your buck at these sites.

Good luck!

This one is 1.5 (d.e.w.)moissy in gold for $750 or best offer. Tons like this out there! Would be $15,000 for a high quality diamond…

I second PP’s suggestions not to rush. It took me nearly a solid year to decide on a setting, but I’m glad we didn’t rush because I have never seen another ring I like better than mine. (:

PM me if you want details on my setting. It’s platinum. We ordered it online from a private jeweler and had the moissanite set locally. Originally this setting came with little surprise diamonds on each side, where the sort of pentagon shape is now, but I had it customised to remove the diamonds. ETA in real life the prongs are very slender and dainty.

@Arrowchan:  A bee posted that final etsy ring you posted above, (or a very, very similar one) on weddingbee recently, but it was about how a large corner of the moissanite had chipped right off.

I know you think the brittleness comments about moissanite you heard from ppl at the Diamond District are not true, but I’m not so sure myself…I suspect it really is brittle (not necessarily the mineral but the final version as a diamond sim). In any case, that setting seems to be particularly risky.
