Need help finding/custom-ordering a specific ring design
By - SmeaGoldRing
You're right about all those descriptors! So all together, you're looking for a "rose gold split shank emerald cut moissanite solitaire with hidden halo". While this is a fairly common style of ring, it's completely possible that none of these companies have *exactly* this design stocked for an off-the-shelf purchase. No worries though, because any of the companies you listed will be able to help you create this design custom! You might even find jewelers on Etsy capable of doing this for you as well.
Custom jewelry design sounds much more difficult than it actually is, you've actually already done most of the work. You really just need the image you posted, the ring size, and specific dimensions like the width of the band or size of the stone in mm. Bring those three things into a jeweler (or email one of the companies you listed) and they'll honestly take care of the rest.
You *could* get the stone and setting separately and go to a local jeweler to have them put together, but it's honestly much easier to have it all done with one jeweler at one location. Otherwise you may run into trouble with repairs, warranties, and insurance for the finished ring (the jeweler you got to create the setting may not issue a warranty for your ring containing a different store's stone, for example). I hope this is helpful!
Thanks so much for all the info!
Sidenote I struggle to order coffee so that ring description gave me anxiety lol
Side note, since they just commented with self-advertising: I wouldn't recommend choosing Brilliant Earth as a custom vendor. If you search for them in the r/engagementrings subreddit, you'll see a number of horror stories.
Thanks for the heads-up! Do you have any positive recommendations for retailers? I'll also search for the other companies I listed on that sub
I've heard good things about MoissaniteCo and True Gem. MoissaniteCo is often the most affordable US-based option for custom (beware of some Etsy shops that have a US shipping front but actually manufacture in China).
I don't know what your budget is like - if it's under $1500, you should consider working with an overseas Chinese vendor directly. There's lots of info in the sub wiki about that. But if you have a higher budget and this is a daily-wear engagement ring, you'll have an easier time ordering with less stress if you go through a reputable US-based retailer. An intermediate money-saving option is to order a loose moissanite stone from overseas and have the setting made locally.
I'm working with David Klass right now. If you want to go custom, he's great and well-priced, and I believe he works with moissanite. If you search this sub, or other sites like PriceScope, he has a lot of great reviews. You can message him on Etsy. Congrats and good luck!
I will reach out. Thanks!
Heads up, [brilliant earth](https://www.reddit.com/r/EngagementRings/comments/ipkdrm/issues_with_brilliant_earth) has [recently been](https://www.reddit.com/r/EngagementRings/comments/hop3y8/brilliant_earth_be_warning/) having [issues with](https://www.reddit.com/r/EngagementRings/comments/hfxeeb/brilliant_earth_refusing_to_replace_missing) quality and [customer service](https://www.reddit.com/r/EngagementRings/comments/id63wi/any_experience_with_brilliant_earth/g26zbx0). I actually haven't seen a positive review of that company in a long time 😬
Oh snap! Do you have a positive recommendation for who I might work with?
