coreyb7580 :  I agree with you. From the photo, I don’t think this stone shows the crushed ice look the way some others have and the center does look strangely dark to me too. I don’t think you’re being too picky, if you paid for a crushed ice stone, then you definitely should get what you paid for. This one leaves a lot to be desired so I would contact them and send them this photo.

coreyb7580 :  honestly I think you should go with your gut. Especially if you’re looking at it and doubting it and not liking it. You deserve to love your ring! Get a refund girl and buy it straight from the Harro website! I do not think you’re being picky. Is it maybe the lighting possibly? Keep us posted!

coreyb7580 :  it does look a little different than mine does in the center of the stone. However, I think yours looks very much like an oval diamond!

I’m happy to say that Harro came through! I emailed them directly and they replaced the stone. It’s absolutely beautiful in person and I think it looks just like an oval diamond! Pictures really don’t capture the true beauty of the stone.

Hi all, I am interested in purchasing a Harro Gem crushed ice cushion. I would really love to know why some people are buying their gems seperate from the actual jewler. Is this to cut cost? Ideally, I would like to buy with Lauren B – can anyone share their experience with having their moissanite set with Lauren B? Or the process? I love PharmaKath ring but a bit smaller.

hansstillsolo :  Hi, can you share you experience w/LaurenB service? I would like to choose from a setting with them once I purchase my moissanite. Thanks =)

reganco95 :  I didn’t in the end. I have to say I’ve really gone off the Harro’s  So many inconsistencies in the cut and liveliness of the stones. I have fallen for LADs antique pear moissanites though. Adult life is just getting in the way at the moment and my money is needed on more ‘responsible’ purchases!

I know I posted about my oval crushed ice Harro several months ago. Well, the stone fell out and for the “redo” I completely changed the setting and stone. This ring is from Lauren B, the stone is still Harro and crushed ice!

Wow big difference! Very pretty what is LAD? Sorry not up on all the names yet. I have been narrowing it down to 3 places that I have been stalking thier instagrams and checking out the choices. 😀 Lauren B, Raven, and JHollywood. If anyone has gotten rings from them would love to hear thier experience.

smcm585 :  LAD I believe is Love Affair Diamonds. They have REALLY pretty OEC moissanite. And my ring is from Lauren B. The craftsmanship is really exceptional, but I got my stone directly from Harro Gem. I know Raven, and probably Lauren B also, buys moissanite from Harro Gem wholesale at a discounted price and they just hold on to the inventory and sell until they’re gone before buying a new batch. The problem with that is that Harro recently switched over to a new “model” of crushed ice and I was afraid that crushed ice stone from Lauren B or Raven would be the older, cloudier model.
