    I'm trying to read through the thread but it's so long! Can anyone share about how long it took to receive an in stock stone? Also, has anyone returned a stone they didn't like and what was that process like? Thanks!

    I got my tracking number overnight last Thursday and the package arrived yesterday. I probably would’ve gotten it Tuesday had it not been for the holiday weekend. I’m in Louisiana if that helps.

    As far as sending back, you’re better off just selling it on Diamond Bistro or Loupetroop because shipping back via USPS with tracking is not only risky, it’s expensive. (About $35 I believe.)

    Thank you, that's really helpful! What is the easiest way to order, through ebay?

    I’d contact a rep directly through WhatsApp. That’s the quickest and easiest way. They’ve had a lot of staff turnover recently, and I was working with Lucy who’s now gone, so maybe someone else can chime in with contact info for a good rep. I don’t want to recommend anyone I haven’t used personally.

    They’re having a sale on Alibaba right now so that would be worth looking into, depending on what you want.

    I posted a video on Reddit, but I wanted to share here too since I’d previously posted the CAD and such. I received my Hydrothermal Emerald and OEC ring yesterday. There are a couple things I could nitpick if I really had to, but on the whole I really love it. The green is a beautiful shade.

    I love the proportions of this — what size are all the stones and what finger size are you? I love this so much.

    Thanks! The stones are 5.5/7/5.5, and I wear a 5.75, lol.

    Generally, how long does Starsgem's shipping usually take?
    The order details thru ebay is giving me a 25 day window.

    They send with DHL speedpack and it takes around 3 working days. My last ring, DHL picked up at Friday evening and delivered on Monday afternoon.

    If you are ordering a loose stone and they charge $3, it can take around 3 weeks. If you ordered a ring and it says ‘speedpak’ then it should be 3 days. Can you check to see if there is tracking on ebay? If it says shipped but there is no tracking, then it could be 3 or so weeks.

    Agreed! When I ordered one off eBay last year I did the $3 shipping not knowing and it took almost a month. Never again.

    Also my sales rep is Alisa and she asked me to not order through eBay as it will be more expensive. Their shipping cost with DHL is $20. Should I trust them?

    That doesn’t look like an ACC to me. It looks like a modern cushion.

    This looks like a regular cushion cut. Is that what you asked for?

    I mean for moissanite, which one is better (look more like diamond), modern brilliant (regular) or antique cushion cut? :)

    IMHO the antique cushions are very realistic. More so than regular cushions

    I just ordered loose stones from them, so I’d trust them as a company, but that price for a loose stone seems exorbitantly high!

    Others that have ordered a comparable size, am I way off base or have prices gone up that much? I was thinking half that, if not less. My price for an entire completed 3 stone ring was less than $400.

    Wow!! Thanks for sharing!!
    They quoted me $95 per carat for moissanite.
    Total ring price + 14k gold is $480
    Also they will charge me additional $20 for shipping to London

    Can others also be so kind to share SG prices pretty please? :)

    Ahh okay thanks :) good to hear that! I was concerned that bigger facets might make antique cushions look dead (only white, no depth)

    Oh, ok! I thought that was for the loose stone only! Makes much more sense now as my ring was rounds, which are less expensive, plus they are much smaller.

    Well, my Moissanite are for sale on DB actually. I’m not sure it’s the stone for me. I’ve had my mind made up for quite some time, now if my wallet would just get in line!

    I’ve had my fill of spending money on moissanite being disappointed having it recut, etc. I may buy one of Jonathan’s ACC’s or OEC’s someday but that’s it. I’m saving for a diamond upgrade through one of the finer companies. Or holding out for MMD. Oh wait, I forgot I have some Chris CZ’s coming soon lol!

    Yeah but those are so inexpensive I say they don’t count :lol: I figured you’d be on the diamond hunt soon! I’ve got my sights set on lab created as well.
