I already have a beautiful engagement ring, but I just ordered a loose moissanite that I would like to have set as a “stand in” ring for when I travel.
My question: Where do I go to have this stone set into a ring? I really would like just a plain, 6 prong, white gold setting.
Thanks in advance!

Hi Bee! Are you asking for specific jewelers? Cuz without more info………
I have heard that some jewelers have refused to set moissanite. I did not have that issue, the first jeweler I went to had no problem setting the stone.
Just be aware that you may run into that…..

I recommend looking for a local independent jeweler. Both places I go to in my city regularly will set and work with moissanite no problem, and can even order it in.
I would just call around to get setting fees and clarify they will set moissanite. It is no different than setting sapphire, etcetera, but some of them could be snobby about it maybe though I have never run into that with local places myself 🙂
The setting you want should just be a stock setting/something they can piece together with findings.
I would avoid any of the “chains” and most will refuse to set moissanite anyway.

I recommend moissanite co. They have tons of settings. Now if you want something cheap…I also recommend jtv. Their line of moissanite is called moissanite fire.
