My boyfriend and I are planning on getting engaged soon, but haven’t settled on a ring design yet. I’m leaning towards moissanite, but haven’t been able to find the setting I want through C&C and other retailers. MoCo has soo many options, but I’ve read quite a few horror stories, so I’m hesitant to let my bf order there. Anyone have any recent experiences with them? A lot of the stories and reviews I’ve seen seem to be older, so I’m hoping there’s fewer issues today. I’m looking for a round, H&A F1 stone around 7.5mm (1.5ct) with a platinum pave or micropave band (2mm or less in width).
Stories, experiences, pics of rings are all welcome here! Thanks a bunch!

Just know, that if you have something custom made, you cannot return it. You must be able to find a vendor that has a good reputation for being amiable if problems arise post creation. Be clear in your warranty terms is all I’m saying. If you buy retail, read the fine print.

My suggestion and what I wish I could have done with my ring. Is to buy to loose stone and find a local jeweller to purchase the custom setting you want and mount the stone(s) on. that way you get the cheap price of the stone and can pay for the setting.

I have to agree with PP’s. I purchased a ring from MoCo last spring and while the stone was stunning, I had trouble with the setting. They aren’t super great at fixing things and you have to do a lot of mailing back and forth (possibly on your dime), emailing, calling etc.
Order a loose stone (I loved their AGS000 stone) and then find a local jeweler to make the setting. Just beware that not all jewelers will set moissanite and most (but not all) charge a fee for setting outside stones.

I have seen some decent reviews for them from Bee’s on here but lately, there has been a lot of bad reviews, such as them giving CZ’s out instead of moissanites and there possibly being a class action law-suit and all that jazz, just search the boards, you can read all about the nightmares!

I got engaged on Xmas eve with a 8mm moissanite co. I love my ring! No issues with them so far. Ring seems very nice quality. It’s so sparkly
