    They are so similar, I think you could go either way, and be perfectly happy.


    I will say though that I have a raised setting, and I love it. BUT I do have to clean it way more often because all sorts of little fibers and things get “stuck” in the opening, just FYI.

    I like the 2nd one.  Mine is a raised setting and I feel like I’m always banging it around.

    I like the way that small cathedrals like that will sit juuuuuuust a little higher than the wedding band. It gives some differentiation to them on your finger and I love how that looks! I vote for the first one. Also from a logistical standpoint it’ll be less fuss to order the whole ring from Moissanite Co and get it with the stone already set, rather than order a setting and stone separately and try to find a local jeweler who doesn’t hate moissanite to set it…I’m in that boat right now and I’m actually dreading going to the jeweler’s tommorow with my moissy ๐Ÿ™

    I have a cathredral setting & love that raised look. However, I really prefer the Blue Nile setting to the moissaniteco setting no contest.

    I really love cathedral settigs, for the make the diamond stand out a lot, though perhaps they look better when the diamond is not a huge one? (just assuming, I really wouldn´t know.)

    The con for me is that I feel like I bang it against everything.. really. So a low setting might be more comfortable if you work with your hands a lot and you want to keep your e-ring on all the time (I leave it at home most days, it kind of make me nervous to use it for work, even when it´s an administrative job, I feel like I bang it again furniture when getting things out of drawers, which is very often). But then I´m kind of a dumb person, lol! so maybe is just a  personal issue! Tongue out

    oh, do the first one! (I’m pretty biased…mine is almost exactly like that, but with small diamonds around it, and it’s from Mo&Co!)

    I voted for the blue nile, but they look really similar to me.  Maybe you can try on similar ones and see what “feels right”?

    I briefly considered setting my 3ct enhanced round moissy in that EXACT setting for bluenile because I LOVE it! I’m not a huge solitaire fan, but I love the prongs on the bluenile petite setting (they look a bit like deathbydesign’s prongs!), and the fact that the band is soo thin! It’s really tough to find that thin of a shank, and I think that it would still look really petite and feminine once the 2mm w-band is added. I’m all about a nice profile, so couple the thin-ness of the shank with those swoonworthy prongs and you’ve got yourself a stunner!

    Why don’t you take this over to the jewelry forum on BTD?

    Mine is not raised and I worry that when I purchase my wedding band (which will be an eternity ring) they may not sit well together. Not sure what other’s experiences with that have been (my bad for not reading replies before posting).
