I also went for a big stone but the height on the ring was so high, I am in the middle of replacing it for something smaller. I do like having a larger stone for my finger size but these cushions are so deep. You have a peg head and it looks like they put it as low as it can go. I was having a hard time just getting the ring to stay upright. In case you have major problems with the height, you can always change it out for something smaller. I am putting mine in a pendant so it is not wasted but I just couldn’t deal with the height of the ring. Mine was 11x10 so just slightly smaller but it does look like an ice cube balancing on top of the band....I am referring to my ring with this comment. You might be fine with your’s and give it a few weeks to see how you feel.Long time lurker, first time poster So I apologize if my formatting is wrong
I ordered an IJ 12x10 moissanite from Starsgem, my rep was Demi, paid on the 29th of April
Total was under $500, paid via the Alibaba site with zero complications.
Received the CAD that very night, using all I had learned from these threads, WeddingBee, Reddit etc I pre-specified what dimensions I wanted the ring made to ensure proper sturdiness; very few revisions needed to be made otherwise.
Received the photos tonight from Demi, she will be mailing it out today
I was a little surprised by the size of the stone when I first saw it... even though I knew what i had asked for:roll
I ordered this size centre stone because I wear US size 9, and wanted something proportionate to my blingy standards I'm hoping once on my finger it will feel juuuust right
I went with an I-J stone because I did not think I would enjoy too much the stark white of a DEF-GHI against my (medium brown) skin tone. The yellow gold I thought would also be complimentary.
Demi was kind, informative and highly responsive. Some of the other reps at SG froze me out once I'd been asking too many questions, but she was always happy to see to my needs I would highly recommend contacting her if you are interested in having something made I also had the opportunity to speak to Mona, sadly we could not work together on this but she was also very pleasant and helpful and I hope to work with her in the future
Thank you to all of you who contribute to these Chinese moissanite threads! It took months of me educating myself by reading and re-reading to feel confident enough to make a purchase. I will of course do my small part with this post and will also update with my own photos and videos once received
