First time poster, long time lurker.
I’ve been with my SO for four years and for a few years before that I have been interested in a moissanite ring, after drooling over an antique-style ring on moissaniteco.com I started to think about the practical aspects of ring keeping (I’m actually divorced, but I didn’t get to pick out my e-ring back then) such as finding a matching wedding ring, subsequent replating (if white gold), cleanings and overall timelessness of the design of the ring.
The ring I picked first was from moissaniteco.com Clara, with the diamond side stones. After much more research on the weddingbee boards, I realized that there isn’t a wedding ring to match that would be easy to find, this worried me very much. I then fell in love with a wedding set that looks perfect to me, from moissaniteco.com wed380.
After seeing jdhall89’s gorgeous e-ring, I noticed it is in a similar style to what I chose, except for the moissanite baguette side stones, peg height, and the design of the wedding band.
For my ring, I’m choosing Palladium, with a .50 ct eqv. round moissanite stone (I don’t plan on enhancing), and double claw prongs.
The reason I’m picking a .50 ct eqv. stone is because of my 3.50 ring size and the fact that I have a baguette of each side of the stone, I’m worried it will be too busy on my small hand. My SO and I have agreed that if the stone looks too small, then we will upgrade. I realize that the double prongs may overwhelm the stone but that would be another reason to upgrade, either way, I really like the double prongs.
Any bees out there with a 3.50 ring size with a non-solitaire e-ring? If so, show me your e-rings 🙂
We haven’t ordered the ring, yet, as we plan on visiting a local shop, probably the only one in the city, that sells Moissanite. They say they can special order rings from their catalog, hopefully they will have the design I want, since I’m still hesitant on making such a large purchase online, sight un-seen (technically).
