So and I just ordered my engagement ring from Moissaniteco.com and I have a tiny concern. I don’t know when SO will pop the question, so it very well could be after the 30 day return policy has ended. I have seen some beautiful moissy on here, but I have also heard stories of people getting a “dud” and having it be really colored, especially with the cushion cuts which is what we have purchased. I did spring for the FB but I am still nervous. Does anyone know if I can exchange the gem past the 30 day return policy if the one I recieve has too much warmth?

Since you already know what you’re getting, why not check it out when you recieve it, then give it to your SO to hide until proposal time?

@Paiger8: Because I want the first time I see it in person to be when SO proposes. Seeing it online and seeing it in person are two completely different things IMO and we still want the proposal to be as special and surprising as possible. Thats just our personal preference.
ETA: but if we have no other option, that is probably what we will end up doing. 🙂

This is exactly what I want to do too. SO and I picked out the ring, and now it’s all on him to order it. From the last time we talked to moissaniteco, they said they usually can extend the return policy in these cases. If your SO knows when he wants to propose, he should give them a call and discuss it with them. They’re great there.

@Scorpio88: Ditto to this. They have great customer service, so it wouldn’t hurt to contact them. And if worse comes to worse, you take a peak before the proposal.

@Scorpio88: This. I think it’s best to have your SO verify with MoCo about whether or not you’ll be able to get an extention on time in regards to the return period.
We’re actually supposed to be recieving my ering from them this Friday! At first I wanted to wait until the proposal to see the ring. However, I’ve been worried about the size being too big; so, I played with the thought of trying the ring on with my eyes closed once it arrived. That way, I can make sure that it fits properly and won’t have to be sent back to be resized. After giving it more thought, though, we both realized that we should both inspect the ring together first when it arrives (just in case there’s some freak chance the ring comes in flawed and he happens to overlook it, or worse, that we happen to dislike how it looks in real life). So, once we get it and it passes our inspection, my SO is going to have it sealed away until he feels it’s the right time to pop the big question. That being said, even if you do have to go this route, I don’t think it will take away from the surprise of being proposed to. I think if you only see the ring for a few minutes, by the time that special day comes, the moment will still be just as surprising and special.

Or make your man propose as soon as he recieves the ring! lol

My SO and I have also picked out a moissy ring together and I don’t want to see it in person until he proposes. But I am also worried about the color. We have decided that he will show my mom the ring as soon as he gets it and she will be able to give him the female’s perspective on the color of the ring. Does anyone in your family or any of your close friends know your getting a moissy? If you’re not trying to pass it off as a diamond, maybe he could have him show it to a close friend of yours or family member to help decide.

I would make sure you’re absolutely happy with it before the return time period is over. I totally understand wanting to save it for the proposal, but it’s much better to take a peek, look at the stone in a few different types of lighting, and make sure you love it first rather than to potentially be unpleasantly surprised right after the proposal! I think any purchase like that should be looked over and inspected – by someone else, if not you – before the proposal.
