My ring is still perfect despite working with my hands daily while wearing it. I think their quality is superb as well, though pave settings in general have problems with stones coming loose. Maybe get a channel setting instead?

I had to send my engagement ring back for repairs on the prongs, my fiance proposed on the 22nd of Dec, my ring is a 1.72 carat princess cut solitare with a white gold band. I just back it back yesterday and the prongs still arent prefect but I guess nothing in life is.

I have the low profile eternity band and I absolutely love it. I almost never take it off (wear it in the shower, in bed, washing dishes, etc).  I’ve been wearing it since last august and it looks good as new. the prongs are delicate but strong. 

I’m really happy with the quality of the white gold too. I had a jewler polish off the rhodium plating, and it barely looks yellow at all. most of the time I can’t even tell. with some white gold rings, they can look very yellow depending on what’s in the alloy and that the difference is very noticeable when the rhodium wears off. well, mine is white enough w/o plating.

love moissaniteco and will buy again!

Pave settings are weak in general especially when there are pave stones in the prongs. A prong on mine ripped off too (ring was not from Moissanite Co.) and my jeweler told me they are not very sturdy. The prongs basically have holes drilled into the metal for the stones so they are much weaker. I had also lost a few of the side stones as well.  I ended up resetting my stone.

@msraniah01: Moissanite Co doesn’t sell princess cuts, and the square brilliant cuts they do sell don’t come in a 1.72 ct. size, just FYI

I have a solitaire for just these reasons. I was worried about pave and stones falling out! I got my solitaire from MoissaniteCo and I love it! Its set in Paladium and I have had zero problems with it. (knock on wood lol)!

Back when MoissaniteCo/AshaDiamonds would set customers’ stones in their settings, I sent them a gemstone to set in a 3-stone ring. They did a decent job of it, the ring was definitely heavy and sturdy, but the prongs were kind of wonky. It was a pear stone so required a v-prong at the point, and it was thicker on one side than the other.

I think a lot of quality issues sort of depend on how picky you are. Loose stones are always unacceptable, but stuff like asymmetry, slightly wonky prong work, etc., you can decide if you can live with that. You won’t get absolute perfection from them but their work is very good for the price in my experience.

I agree with PPs, that pave settings are definitely the most delicate. if you are hard on your rings, or just don’t want to worry about stones falling out, I also recommend a solitaire. 

if you really must get side stones, I recommend channel set, bezel set, or prong set where each stone has 4 prongs.  those are the most secure (channel set being the most out of all of those.)

shared prong settings can be iffy depending on how they were made (mine is a shared prong setting from moissaniteco and it seems to be pretty sturdy).  pave is definitely the most delicate, they’re very pretty but I would never get one.

@GoldfishPie: Yes, its the square brilliant 1.7ct Mira Moissanite. When it was ordered 1.7 was the ct weight but on my little card NAGL card it reads 1.72ct weight. My ring is the sol 313 and size 7.5. Didnt know I needed to be that technical, thanx

@janie-janie: can you tell me which ring you have please (model no. or link?)? Are there any photos of it here?

Just yesterday I started a thread on BTD asking about the appearance of MoissyCo’s white gold, because I don’t want my ring coated if the white gold isn’t too yellow. So happy to see your post!

I have a shared prong eternity ring from them, and had it almost a year before a stone fell out.  I sent it to be repaired and it happened AGAIN 24h after getting it back.  Grr.  So the second repair they didn’t charge me but they did charge me shipping, so in total for the 2 repairs I’ve paid about a hundred dollars.  The prongs are a bit wonky and have been from the start but I didn’t think it was a big deal until the initial repair, and even though I asked for them to fix the prongs this second time they didn’t.  However, I would purchase from them again but would make sure to choose a design that has a more secure setting.
