Any recent purchases of smaller emerald cut moissanites from places you’d recommend? I’m thinking 7x5 and affordable. I’m really thinking of recreating a Berricle ring that I’m slightly obsessed with. Or at least something similar as I’m loving the emerald cut!

Another EC lover here, in diamonds and in certain CSs.

Following this, however, I do not intend to get a Moissy in EC, as I love my EC diamonds (one small for daily wear, and a bigger one for more formal occasions) and do not intend to have more.

However, I may, just may, consider getting a 3-stone with step cut traps as side stones.

The rings at Berricle, although stunning, do not suit me as I would only have bezel-set stones. However, I could be persuaded to change my mind, as the stones and rings are more easily replacable financially. :bigsmile:

Thanks @dk168! The Berricle one I have has small rounds and I am a huge fan of three stones and would consider any side stone shape; I have a few three stones and love them! I am definitely a smaller stone gal and get the right amount of bling from the smaller three stones and five stones.

I switch out my wedding rings based on my mood and outfit so I don’t want to invest in diamonds for occasional wear. Berricle is great since it’s so cheap to try something new! I love the one I just got enough to want to invest in something like it that will last longer.

Should I need EC advise, I know who to come to!:)

I am no expert on ECs, there are other PSers who are far more knowledgeable than me!

Moissy are great, so are the likes of Berricle. I would probably get more non-ring items from Berricle in future as they are fun and affordable.

I like it to know that there are quite a few PSers who would mix real diamonds and CSs with lab and imitation varieties, largely, IMHO, thanks to the introduction of the FFJ sub-section in PS.

I was going to say to save a little more and get the 1 carat emerald cut necklace from Lightbox but of course it is already gone. I wanted to do a 3 stone with a 1 carat center and two smaller sides or a daintier E/W setting. It is sold out already now...

I would probably go for one from Tianyu. I think in the size that you are after, it will be very affordable and it cuts down on the double refraction. You can even do some lab diamonds in a bezel on each side. Someone recently did that with it set East/West and I wasn’t sure about it but I actually think it worked.

Lightbox would have been a great idea!

I’ve ordered from Tianyu before and am comfortable with that. I may reach out for a price. Thanks!

I love my moissy August vintage emerald. They are pricey for moissy but the antique cut is amazing and he has sales now and then on them if you keep an eye out.
