I am a long-time lurker and LOVE looking at the wonderful rings on here. I have a question to all of the moissanite bees. My boyfriend and I decided on moissanite. However, I want to do a halo setting with diamonds (for ease of local stone replacement if any fall out). Any suggestions for online vendors who will set a moissanite in a diamond setting? Or has anyone else bought a loose moissanite from Moissanite Co. and had it set elsewhere?
I feel like it will be difficult to find a jeweler (or online diamond vendor) who will be willing to work with this stone. Thanks in advance!!!

I think deathbydesign ordered a loose moissanite and had it set in a setting from the internet. You can look up her posts; she just got engaged. Her ring looks really nice.

This halo moissanite ring has diamonds in the setting:
If you contact MoisCo, they’ll pretty much do whatever you want. I know they’ll make eternity bands into 3/4 and 1/2 eternities for people, and they do custom jewelry all the time. It should be no problem. Good luck!

I am going with a moissanite ring as well, and while searching on moissaniteco.com I found one setting that I loved, but decided against because the small stones were diamond. It just seemed to make the ring so much more expensive than the other settings I was looking at.
here’s a pic (if i can get it to work, i’m new here)

Definitely call around to local jewelers… it shouldn’t be a problem finding one. My jeweler works with moissanite on a weekly basis now. He created my setting as well with a center moissy.

Start with local family owned jewelers. You won’t have too much luck with the big chain retailers.

Thank you all so much for your speedy and helpful replies. Apparently, Moissanite Co. will set your moissy if you send them the setting. Has anyone done this? I will go this route if I don’t find a local jeweler willing to set the stone.
