mrscarostone :  For me, it is a bit of both like luckyrabbit says.  I think if you are getting a moissanite solitaire or simple pave band, they can produce a ring almost as good as some of the US companies at a fraction of the costs.  My favorite stones though, I am redoing in some nicer settings because I want miligrain and hand engraving.  They can do miligrain ok but it will not be as fine as the NA companies nor do they do hand engraving….if you want something complicated or this is your only ring, I usually suggest to buy the loose stone from them and have it put in a setting over here.

luckyrabbit :  i think justjeauxs oval was colorless? Might be mistaken. Why it wouldn’t look yellow! Although i guess it would give off warmth from the gold i guess?

jordanalicia :  I think she got G-H color? I guess I was worry the color would be too warm. Like yellow tint. But it seems to go well with the yellow gold.

luckyrabbit :  just went back to make sure and she did say EF! Is that as colorless as you can go or will that still have warmth potentially? I guess depenss on cut? Im stuck on these little details, im sure it doesnt matter too much but i don’t want to be disappointed with it

jordanalicia :  ooohhh, I guess I must have missed that part. Yes, that is as colorless as they can get. For fancy shapes. Like pear , emerald cut, and crushed ice, me personally, I would stick with colorless E-F color. I’ve seen a few G-H that looks pretty noticable warm. Chinese warm will not be the same as North America warm. If you’re going with yellow gold, that might be ok. If your metal will be white, I’d do colorless. 

The cuts that they have been good and have been done a lot by them, like round brilliant/H&A, oval brilliant cut, and ACC that I’ve seen. G-H still comes out white. So you’ll be fine going with G-H color with whatever color metal you’re doing. 

Also, when in doubt you can ask your sales rep. It could also be the quality of the moissanite rough they’re using as well.

jordanalicia :  also, it depends on how color sensitive you are as well. I’ve become slightly color sensitive. I have an oval brilliant cut from SG. I asked for a E-F and it’s in 14k yellow gold. Even though the yellow gold warms up the stone, I still notice a little contrast of the whiteness of the stone. Other ppl probably wouldn’t.

mrscarostone :  the one I’m making will be my forever ring! I don’t usually wear rings due to my baby hands (small and meaty). But I’d be pretty interested if SG starts doing other jewellery. Wouldnt mind a grey moissanite necklace…

My ring is finished!!! Here’s my CAD and the video Cherry sent last night. I was concerned about the spacing and prongs on one end. It wasn’t clear in the video, so she sent pictures. I still questioned the prong size, so she took it back to the jeweler and had it measured. She did not complain about it at all. I felt extremely comfortable going back and forth with her. Can’t wait to see it in person.

hm2012 :  This summary is amazing! Definitely helpful for people jumping in to this vendor. Going to have to remember the page number, lol! I would also note that things go much faster if you communicate with them during their working hours. It requires you stay up later at night, but conversations and responses can happen much quicker than it usually does with the time difference.

hm2012 :  That’s great that you did a summary. If people come on the board before buying, that and the bees can definitely help before paying the moola:)
