@mbmerriman42:  take a look on betterthandiamond.com – there are heaps of pics which may set your mind at ease and a moissaniteco gallery I think… I am having the same wonderings but never heard a bad thing yet. I actually ordered a little necklace in the sale as a ‘tester’ from them and it was perfect. Good luck!

Ummmmm ya. The “hole” you’re talking about is called a culet. Some stones have them some don’t. Some have large ones, some small some in between. It’s not a moissanite thing its a GEMSTONE (diamonds et all.) thing. Some ppl likthereof stones to have them some dont.

I think it would have been wise to at least check out the stone before committing to a ring, but I have done a ton of research on the company, and I have liked everything I’ve seen.

I ordered a stone to make sure I liked it in person, and it’s so beautiful! Are you more worried about the setting or the stone?

I have a 6.5mm amora moissy from betterthandiamond set in a very thin (2mm?) band. It does have the hole in the bottom that you mentioned, but it’s not because my moissanite has a culet, it seems to be due to the more shallow cut. I only noticed it because I held the loose stone up to the sun, but I don’t see it at all now that the stone has been mounted. Moissanite in real life is sparkly and gorgeous. I think you’ll love it.

Have no fear when it comes to moissanite! Mine is a 2.2 carat, cushion cut and I love it! I didn’t want to waste the money to buy a diamond and the girls I work with who have diamonds are super jealous. I get more compliments on my ring, at least twice a week (for almost a soild year). Most people ask to see it up close and comment on how much it sparkles. I think it throws more sparkles then my diamond rings. It took A LOT of convincing and my fiance really was against it but he’s has seen how people react to it and he is happy that I love it. I wouldn’t change my mind and I try to convice friends who aren’t yet engaged to think about something other than diamonds.

I love my ring from there. Their customer service is awesome, btw.

I have a 6 prong 1.5ct solitaire on a 1.8mm band, and it was soo much better than I expected it to turn out. I was really shocked. Also, my ring is also a 5.75, same as yours. Hopefully that helps with perspective on what the stone size will look like on your finger.

I think you’ll love it!!  Moissanite is beautiful, and I think if you already know you like wider bands you’ll be fine.  (It’s also not a huge difference from the original size so I wouldn’t worry too much about changing the stock image.)

 

Be sure and post when you get it!!

@lilsweetie:  I bet they would, too.

 

My ring is from MoissyCo and I found them to be very helpful.

I got mine through better than diamond too I and I agree that they are wonderful.

 

It also depends on the stone.  I got a cushion cut in 2.2 carats and it does look quite small “face up” meaning when you look at my finger.  I did some research and it is stated that cushion cut look smaller.  I am actually really happy about this though.

@mbmerriman42:  You were right to go with the enhanced, in my opinion. Some unenhanced stones are beautiful, but some are just blegh. I don’t really see the “hole” in mine, and hopefully your friends won’t be looking at your ring through a microscope! Most people just remark on how pretty it is, ask you about it, and then move on. 

Moissaniteco was great to work with for us. I want to work with them again! Haha, think I can convince fiance that I need another one? You’ll love your moissanite ring. And I mean LOVE it. I’ve had mine for months and I’m still enamored by it.
