Hi ladies, my SO has asked me to pick out my favourite rings and I had a favourite all lined up, but then Gabriel & Co went and upped the price! We’re trying to keep it under $2000, moissanite and all. The Gabriel & Co one is only listed in platinum, so white gold will be a bit less, but still… Then I was on MoissaniteCo and I saw a similar ring for much less but I haven’t been able to find any IRL pictures of it anywhere. Which one do you like better?
Gabriel & Co
Moissanite & Co

I think they look very similar so i’d go with moissyco because its cheaper. Have you checked their Facebook page for IRL pics?

I like how the Gabriel & Co one looks in the pictures better. I would need to see the moissanite one first.

I do like both, but the Gabriel and Co has nicer (less bulky) prongs. It is a softer more feminine look, but without seeing both in a photo on someone’s hand, it is very difficult to tell.
If you want to keep within your budget, then the second one is close enough! Like I said above I do like both and I don’t think you could go wrong with either choice.

I like the Gabriel & Co one better. I think the basket is more delicate and interesting

I voted for the moissanite ring because it doesn’t look like there’s a “donut” on the bottom. I.e., it might be easier for you to find a wedding band that sits flush with the moissanite ring.
If it’s not important to you to have a straight, flush ring, then go for the Gabriel ring, because as others have said, the prongs look nicer.

@allinoelle: I voted for the moissaniteco ring, because they are very similar so my vote is for the most cost effective option. If you don’t like the prongs, I believe moissanite co offers different heads, so you could probably have it made with different prongs.

what would the cost difference be? if it’s only a $100 difference then Gabriel and Co because it’s a bit more delicate and seems to be finer workmanship of the milgrain, etc.
But if its a $500 difference then that is more significant and really, they are so similar that if you’re not comparing them side by side, you would probably be happy with MCo once it’s on your finger.

@luvmesumhim: Thanks for the suggestion! I checked out the FB page, but it wasn’t posted there
@mrsmay07: That’s good to know! I checked it out and MoissaniteCo offers some more delicate prongs, which is nice
@mrsmay07: It’s almost a $1,000 difference!!! Crazy, right?
I think everyone is basically saying the same things that I think about the two rings- the Gabriel & Co has a more detailed basket, which I love, and I really like the delicate prongs.

Gabriel&Co handmakes their rings, the rings are more delicate and more intricate. The attention to detail and milgrain will be much nicer. I have a floral band that is gorgeous from them. Customer service is not the greatest but it seems all companies are going that way.
MoissaniteCo’s are mostly stock settings, the rings are not as refined. Their customer service is hit and miss too.

My ring by Gabriel&co, and I LOVE it. It is so intricate, and unique. I’d definitely go with Gabriel&co.

My ring is Gabriel & Co also, I love it. The quality and details are perfect. My wedding ring will also be Gabriel & Co.
