My SO and I are currently looking at rings for the future (eep!). I’ve already made some decisions, but need some help! I know I want a moissanite for financial and ethical reasons, and I know that I want a cushion cut. I also know that he doesn’t like it when rings have too much height. I’m looking at a ENG295a on MoissaniteCo.com, but can’t seem to find any IRL pictures! Does anyone have this ring? I’m also a little nervous about the sidestones falling out… does anyone have any experience with this?
Of course, if anyone wants to post a similar ring they’d suggest, I’d be so happy to see them, too!
Here’s the link to what I’m looking at:

@nutmeg36: Here’s a pic for everyone.
There are lots of bees with this general style. Any time you have side stones set in that way, it is possible for them to fall out. Or maybe even probable? That isn’t the most secure setting, which has nothing to do with the quality of MCo in general. I (and many many other bees lately) have had a great experience with MCo. It sounds like you are going to end up with a beautiful ring! What size center stone are you thinking about? Did you know that they post tons of real pics on their FB page? https://www.facebook.com/pages/wwwmoissanitecocom/42054749452?ref=br_tf

@ceebree: Yes, I just spent about an hour scouring through their Facebook to see if I could find a picture of this one (no such luck!). But, further investigating has actually brought me (back) around to SOL 026. I’ve been considering it all along, but wasn’t sure about how high it was set… now that I’ve seen pictures, I’m fairly well convinced! J don’t have a rough job, but can be a bit hard on my jewelry, so the sidestones make me so nervous!
I’m abotu 98% sure that SO will be going through MCo, I’ve heard such wonderful things about them! I’ve suggested either a 1.4ct or a 1.8ct to SO; we’ll see what he picks.
Thank you so much for replying 🙂

@nutmeg36: Sol026 is very pretty! Another pic for everyone. I think in the end you’ll be glad you avoided the broken heart that results from a missing pave stone. That ring is so classy!
