Hi Bee,

These are all things that you can communicate to a jeweler.  Are you looking only for pre-made settings?  A custom setting won’t cost you much more and will offer you peace of mind because you can literally do whatever you want.

You also should steer clear of big name jewelers and get any custom work done by a small, mom-and-pop-shop, type jeweler. Hope this helps πŸ™‚

Im getting 4 prong claw which i think looks really nice but how many promgs you get is really a personal choice they both look nice whether it is 6 or 4

I ordered this one (7.5mm size 6 in platinum) to propose with.

They can do customisations so if you email them and told them what you want I’m sure they could round the prongs or something to make them look less obvious, although I don’t really notice them anyway (maybe a bigger stone would help?).

I had a great experience with them (I know not everyone does) and even allowing for import duty and VAT it ould’ve come in at around £800 cheaper than getting it over here in the UK and the setting was just what I was after.

Jillyb33 :  I see.  Well the prongs in the bottom picture are called claw prongs.  In the top picture, they look round but they’re soooooo tiny!  I’ve actually never seen prings that small on any ring.  It may have been just an effect they created in the photo.

Sorry if these pictures are giant, but I just got this OEC (looks like maybe transitional cut though? I’m no expert.) moissanite ring off of Ebay (seller is Carob Jewels) a couple of days ago and I love it! He made me an 8 mm in 10k rose gold for $300.00! So though not as cheap as other India moissanite sellers, I do feel like the quality is really nice. I’m sure you could ask for the prongs to be made to your liking. I got the ring very quickly and I’m excited to have a solitaire to wear when I’m not in the mood for all the bling on my halo engagement ring. I would highly recommend the shop! πŸ™‚
