Is anyone cutting MMD half-moons/other "accent" shapes?

I'm contemplating designing a mixed-cut halo setting for a colored stone that would involve a couple carats of diamonds in interesting shapes (shapes TBD! But thinking step-cut half-moons, French cuts, baguettes, who knows!). Is anyone cutting peculiar shapes in smallish sizes? Just finding a source for half moons would make setting a handful of patiently-waiting colored stones a possibility!

There are definitely some vendors I found in the 'List of MMD vendors' thread in this section - have a look through!

Thanks!! Inspiration for the halo will come from what I can find out there, I think.

Tianyu I think can cut them to order. I do think the Ouros will be much cheaper and he already has sets to order for really good prices. There aren’t a ton of people selling shapes other than rounds in lab diamonds yet. You can try working with a custom jeweler to source them for you. Sometimes they have a better idea of inventory and where to get these things at the price you are willing to pay.

I can also recommend Ivy & Rose. They go by mydiamondzone on ebay and I have bought some baguette’s from them in the past for a ring project.

FYI when I spoke with Emily at Tianyu, she said custom cut lab diamonds will take about a week. Their price per carat is comparable to Ouros, but need to keep in mind the shipping cost is separate, whereas Ouros has free shipping. Ultimately I don't think there's a significant difference in price.
