    Independent jeweler, I purchased the setting from him and had him order my moissanite for me.

    Fiance got it from a diamond broker in another state… so did not pay sales tax. HUGE savings…just like with Blue Nile.  The local high end jeweler was amazed at the diamond – and they would have charged twice as much.

    Blue Nile.

    Loved the diamond – hated the setting (standard solitaire – but the basket around the diamond was thick and misshapen).  Ended up going to a local jeweler for a new solitaire setting.

    Ordered ours online from a coloured diamond specialist company in Israel. Nervous would be an understatement! But it all worked out and we got a stone we would not have been able to afford , no where near so it was worth it ๐Ÿ™‚
