@misspj3: I too found this photo on Pinterest just last week. This is my first post here on the forums cuz I wanted to help you in your search 😉
I am obsessed with finding this band, lol! My Boyfriend or Best Friend and I decided just this past weekend that we want to get engaged very soon so we can start planning our wedding for next year. He wanted to take me ring shopping, but deep down I really wanted it to be a surprise proposal so we would have a fun story to tell 🙂 However the control freak in me wanted him to get me the exact ring I wanted, since I would be the one wearing it. I had always liked the look of princess and cushion diamonds, and not really found or rounds except when set in bands. That was until I found that Pinterest photo.
I have seen many halo rings and thought that would be the best way to achieve the bling I wanted. So I decided to go a jeweler on my own, try on the few styles I liked and then tell him which style I wanted so he could purchase one that fit his budget. I also wanted to see what carat size I liked best, but after trying on a carat and then a 1.5, I nearly had a coronary when I saw the price tags. I figured I’d prolly be stuck getting a small stone with a halo just to make the ring look bigger.
In my search for rings, I found this photo. I instantly fell in love and the hunt began. I knew that I wanted at least a carat, but with how flipping expensive they are, I knew I could not get both a big solitaire AND this type of band. That’s when I discovered the Amora moissanite. I am so freaking excited, cuz now I can have the both the big solitaire in that classic 4 pring setting and have a sparkly band that can stand alone. Win! I showed my Boyfriend or Best Friend this picture and he loved how both delicate and classic this combo is. He also loved the idea of the moissanite and real diamond band combo. Phew! Glad he’s ok with the moissy like me. No one will be able to tell the difference anyways 😉
Anyways!! Here’s what I’ve found. The first band I found was the Kwait one. Shreve & Co carries Kwait and so does Nordstrom, so my hunt began there. Nordies had the two row band there and it was a showstopper! It was so petite and delicate, just like in the Pinterest image, but I just really like the three row better. They said they can order it for me. However even with the money we are saving by getting a moissy, the price bothers me, so I have kept looking.
Hidalgo makes a three row braided band as well and it is a lot less that Kwait’s. Shreve is also an authorized seller so I’m hoping they can show me this ring in person as well. It can be made as a half or full eternity, and they make it in platinum, which I want my moissy set in, so this may be the route I go. I just want to see it first to make sure it has the same delicate look as the Kwait one.
Sparks also makes one too, but the carat wt is tiny, so it won’t have the same impact like the others band will.
Hope this helps!! Thanks for reading my long post, just so excited I can’t help it. Sent him the email will all my rings deets. Now I’m just (impatiently, lol!) waiting 😉 If anyone’s interested, I can post a pic when I get the combo together.
