I am glad you finally got your replacement since I know you missed your old ring. I assume you are going for the solitaire set again?
Most likely, just not sure what kind of solitaire I want yet. I was always partial the Classic Tiffany, but I’m liking 4 prong cathedrals more and more these days.

I like cathedrals only because I can switch around any band and they can still sit flush w/o a spacer. There are designs that can still sit low enough though. Your stone looks a bit bigger so I assume you went larger than 2 carats? Tianyu does a really nice OEC cut.

Hi mamabean - had a small favor to ask. I am trying to help someone out who is looking at either a Princess cut from Tianyu or the diamond ones sold at Costco. I know you picked up a pair when they had that accidental sale online. You are the only person I know that has both. Would it be possible to get a picture of one of the earrings next to the Tianyu moissanite so I can share that with her? No huge hurry but if you have the time this weekend Thank you!!

Hi Everyone!
Two questions: does anyone here have lab diamond pave on their ring from Tianyu and does it look good? Secondly, H&A or OEC? I’ve had both and sadly my last OEC from them wasn’t as nice as the first and I’m wondering if H&A might be a better bet. I look forward to to your thoughts.

There has been a lot more activity on the reddit moissanite page if you want to see a ton of examples. Most of the people on this thread seemed to have bought enough moissanite and things have really slowed down. I don’t have a lab diamond melee setting from Tianyu but I have had both of the H&A and an OEC from them. I think I did prefer the H&A if I were to pick one. I still love an OEC but I don’t think I will be satisfied until I get a diamond one. The H&A moissanite from them is still pretty nice.

Thank you for responding. I asked for a H&A cut G/H color with pave lab diamonds halfway down the shank on each side. I hope it comes out beautifully.

Frenchie has arrived! To say Tianyu exceeded my expectations would be an understatement! The French cuts are divine and they did an outstanding job on the setting - it’s a nice weight and very, very comfortable. The setting is 18k white gold/palladium and each French cut is 2mm square.

Here is the CAD and close up of one of the stations:

I’ve learned that French cuts are deceptively difficult for me to photograph, constantly reflecting light so it makes it hard to get a good shot of the cut because of the sparkle. :mrgreen2:

Stacked with my bezel diamond band and OEC solitaire:

With just the soli:

And why not try a stack with Sparkle Spice the ACC five stone while we’re at it, right?? :lol-2:

So thrilled with this band! And now wishing I had more real estate underneath my knuckle so I could stack even more! :lol:

Hi! I know this is an older post but I just love your rings. I have an OEC solitaire that I was wanting to pair with a milgrain bezel band and yours is just stunning. The size looks perfect, may I ask the size of the band width and the stone size??? I love love love your Frenchie band as well and just may copy your whole darn stack if you don’t mind having a twin running around in LA, oh and mine will be in yellow gold.

I thought I would respond since mrsgreeneyes hasn’t been active for awhile. I have the same bands you are talking about. I know her bezel band was diamonds and made by David Klass. Mine was 18K yellow made by Starsgem with DEF moissnaites. You could have the Chinese do it in lab diamonds now. It was 2 mm round’s with a milligrain edge.

The French cut is moissanite in 2mm square’s but they don’t come as lab diamonds yet though. We both had it done in 18K &. Palladium from Tianyu but they don’‘t offer that metal combination anymore. I would check out the miligrain options with each company and go wirh the price on the one like best. I think the band would look better in platinum or yellow gold.

Hi all!

I just got this video of my custon ring from Tianyu & am looking for some advice.
1. The pear side stones both have noticeable bow-ties. Am I allowed to ask them to swap these? Will they charge extra? Is it even possible to find a pear that small with no bowtie? (2.5x4mm)

2. How does the oval look? I might be in my own head but the facet at the very top of the ring looks very large/flat like a chunk is missing... Any thoughts?

It is very difficult to get those small pear side stones without some sort of bow tie. You are seeing them in fancy lights though and they show up darker. I had a very similar ring and they look more white in daylight. On the oval itself, I think that is just the angle that you are seeing from the way she is holding the ring.

When I got my oval last year, they were still doing brilliant cuts which were very splintery. I know they are now doing the oval as H&A cut’s so you don’t have as big of a bow tie with those. I don’t really see anything wrong but they are moving the video pretty fast. You might be better satisfied if you see some still pics before they ship.

They had a promotion that started on December 1st but I am going to guess you probably placed your order before then?

Thanks v much! I'll ask for some stills but I think you've mainly answered my questions. Yes I ordered on the 23rd so I just missed any promotions!

Hello all !

I received a message from Tianyu today ... the ring is ready :D

I attach some photos and a video, tell me what you think!


Thank you all for your help
Your ring looks fantastic btw.

I know my gf likes this exact ring style you made (minus the side diamonds). Do you happen to have any post-purchase thoughts on your ring now that it's been awhile since receiving it? I'm considering going down the tianyu path too, and am also considering how to get the possible wedding band to stack nicely with it.
