It’s as if moissanite stones are poison

That’s really odd. That’s like refusing to work with a ruby or sapphire or any other random gem. What are you trying to have done?

I think a lot of jewelers are afraid of being accused of switching the stone with a synethic stone so they won’t work with them to protect themselves.  That’s giving them the benefit of the doubt though, and hoping they aren’t being too hoity-toity to use the stone. 

What are you trying to have done?

have you been trying larger, commercial jewelers, or local shops?  I feel like you might have more luck with local.

@lyns86stc Have you tried the jeweler that you bought the setting from?  What about small local jeweler’s over chain jewelry shops?

Have you considered a designer on etsy? There are many that use moissanite to make their own creations, perhaps one might be willing to set yours?

betterthandiamond has settings that deal with moissanite, and they apparently have awesome customer service

Where are you located? If by chance you’re in the Pittsburgh area, I can give you the name of my jeweler. I have a moissanite ring and they didn’t even bat an eye about it.

@lyns86stc:  Etsy.com. Local (and far) designers can make pretty much anything custom for you, or even pre-made unique things, and the costs are pretty low because they are individual designers (not working for a B&M store). I would search for moisssanite rings on etsy, find someone’s work you like, and then contact them to see if they’d be willing to provide this service, since you can’t find a jeweler to do it. You’d just mail (and insure) your stone and setting to them, pay them via etsy, and then they’d ship it back to you.
