My boyfriend of 5 years knows me well enough that he wants me to design or pick out my own engagement ring (smart man) so I will love it everytime I look at it. I love all kinds of metals but for me personally, I really only wear rose or yellow gold. I also want to get a moissanite gem instead of a diamond, for many reasons, none having to do with the price, I am just environmentally aware. I have a local jeweler in Santa Monica who I thought would love to take on the $5,000 or however much I would be paying them to set my stone, but that is not the case. They said they only work on diamonds. My opinion of that place has changed.
Does anyone know where I can find someone to set my moissanite stone in a rose gold setting? Or a jewelry store with a large selection of rose gold? Every store I seem to go to in my area has white gold only.
To be specific, I have a round 1.5 carat stone and I am looking for a halo, very low profile setting.
Any help or pictures would be great!?

Let me know if you find any! When we were shopping recently ( I was also looking for rose gold and a unique setting / stone shape) we went to Jareds and the diamond connection in SanDeigo. Jareds had quite a few options in rose gold but nothing that really screamed perfect for my style. But they are worth checking out.
I don’t believe the diamond connection deals much with non-diamonds, purely based on thier name. but they also had a larger selection or rose gold. Have you thought about getting something custom made? There are many many dealers on Etsy that deal with rose gold. When you were describing the ring you wanted it made me think of this one : http://www.etsy.com/listing/78310364/antique-square-moissanite-and-diamond
She works a lot with rose gold and it says in the description that she can make it in rose gold. It might be worth contacting her to see if she could custom set your stone in to something like that.

@equine86: I am currently fawning after rose gold everything. I personally am looking into rose gold halos, of which I don’t see a lot so it’s a bit hard to gauge. That being said, Eternity Diamonds may be worth checking out. When you email them, Yoni is suuper helpful and they can customize everything (including rose gold). I’ve heard of them setting stones other than diamonds, so hopefully they can set a moissanite. Their work is beautiful and I believe they will send you settings in the mail for you to try before you buy. Let us know how it goes!

[bumping this up]
I like Rose Gold a lot but would be happy with yellow gold, too. However, when we went shopping my SO just LOVED the rose gold tone on my skin and now is obsessed with finding a low-set rose gold solitaire setting. I can’t hardly even find any online, much less in stores.
Is there anyone who could point us in the right direction (especially online)?

@39bride: You could try EidelPrecious on Etsy – http://www.etsy.com/shop/EidelPrecious I fell in love w/ the halo setting in rose gold w/ the peachy tones of the sapphires.
Although I’m going to get something like this made:
My fiance doesn’t want to buy online, so we are left to ring hunting in person and man is it hard to find rose gold settings. Especially one that you like. I have not found any stores, but for online, definitely EidelPrecious, or you could check out Natural Sapphire Company: http://www.thenaturalsapphirecompany.com/Sapphires/Settings/Rings/#&&5p/1EGZc/rglQ9WRZeI5lnoZIiWnnA54zWHZ2mv9OYLHJ70HCAoTMOg5RqXwLOG+VFznoODeRNxr2xb4hAioaJxggLAaI7qYVtlVGynpoFep8RFMzocTgGBxlTjBiat2PiEJsonjhVlPUfHSdV9QzsrVivYrrCAdzHxtHBDHEtI+3iJxooNj3A/XQ6Z0lST0RLL2Xw==
I believe they will set your own stone for you or you can give them the exact dimensions of your stone and you can have it set at a local jewelers.
Happy ring hunting, I hope you find some great rose gold settings 🙂
