by stargold » Jan 15, 2018 Hello, I've been lurking for a while and you've all been so helpful, so I'd like to pick your brains! I've been wanting to get myself my first really nice ring and fell in love with Julia B Jewelry's blue-green OEC moissanites, here: https://www.etsy.com/listing/526663988/blue-green-old-european-cut-oec I'd really like to set a 5mm one in a rose gold bezel setting with an open gallery and sort of cathedral shoulders, and have come down to two settings, one by Julia B herself and the other by another etsy vendor: https://www.etsy.com/listing/482655011/custom-design-bezel-engagement-ring https://www.etsy.com/listing/485338843/moissanite-ring-14k-white-gold The cost to set the stone with the second vendor is several hundred dollars less than with Julia (and I'm a grad student and would really like to stretch my dollar), but I know Julia has a great reputation on PS and is obviously familiar with setting OEC moissanites. Basically, my question is, how much should I expect to be paying for a setting like this, and how important is it for the quality of the final ring that the setter is familiar with OEC moissanites? Both jewelers appear well-reviewed and since this is my first jewelry investment, I'm a little lost with how to decide. Thanks!
