    That’s the same setting I want when I get engaged! 🙂  Are you sure she’ll set moissanite in her setting? 

    I came across old cuts online and had looked at a lot of pictures before actually going into a few diamond stores to check out old cuts in person. Obviously the diamonds were going to be smaller in person, but I was personally a little surprised by how difficult it was to see the clear chunky facets of the old cuts when you went smaller (smallest I saw was 1.6 carats, but this is in LA). At 2-3 carats, I could see the facets much better. So maybe something to consider. 

    If you’re unsure about size, you could carefully measure and cut out the stone sizes on a piece of paper, then place it on your hand (or on top of a ring on your hand). Or buy a few cheap CZ rings online. That should give you an idea of the size you like.

    Any particular reason you want to go with ring concierge? I only ask because you’ll be paying more for her as a middleman. She doesn’t make the jewelry herself she just outsources the orders her clients bring to her. You’re better off going straight to a reputable bench and, if not paying less, at least ensuring all the profits go to the actual jeweler. The design is antique so it’s not as though she owns it.

    Hi there! I actually have this exact situation and ordered The Antique setting in gold with platinum prongs from Ring Concierge with an 8×8 mm OMC moissanite stone from Harro Gem. My ring size is 5 and the proportions are exactly what I was looking for, not too big or too small. It’s a BEAUTIFUL setting and I’m obsessed. I can post a picture when he pops the question- should be within the next couple weeks.

    I don’t like super big rings and the biggest I would ever go is 8mm.  My personal sweet spot is 7.5mm.

    Edit: most people have not seen OMC in person (or realize that even such a cut exists) so you’re probably going to get a lot of questions.  If you go too big, you’ll probably get a lot of side eyes as well.

    You can play around with the dimensions on https://www.diamdb.com/ You won’t be able to see what your actual chosen stone will look like, but it will give you an idea of finger coverage.

    Cruzer :  8.5 or 9 mm would probably be perfect for you. The setting sits much lower to the finger than I thought it would, which for me is a great thing. I was concerned about it catching on things but it’s not too tall. I would assume the height will increase with the size of the stone. 

     

    I don’t know the exact timeline but it was about 6-8 weeks for the stone and 4-6 weeks for the setting. RC was great at communicating and facilitating the whole process. We had the stone sent straight to her which was a little scary with not seeing the stone in person first. It all worked out well but it was a process for sure.
