Triple Halo Engagement Ring

We had a customer with a bunch of old jewelry that she wanted repurposed into something new. This is a spin on that ring. We made it in round and rounded square shapes as well. The 2mm diamonds in the cushion halo are french pave set, but we could make this a shared prong setting as well. It is also possible to play with stone sizes or even remove a halo if you like.
As glittery as your beautiful partner, a moissanite has no match in terms of sparkle.

HISTORY OF MOISSANITE

Before moving to the extraordinary qualities of moissanite, let us get into its interesting history. To comprehend the improbable story of the stone, we have to go back in time 50,000 years. It was then that a shooting star flashed over the sky and hammered into the earth at a remote spot in Northern Arizona. The fierce effect made what is today known as Meteor Crater, a tremendous opening in the world’s surface 570 feet down and about a mile over. Amid the effect, shooting star sections were dissipated over the desert, some arrival in close-by Diablo Canyon. These parts held minute amounts of a gleaming material, the silicon carbide which is used today as a precious gemstone forming moissanite.

Art Deco Moissanite Engagement Ring

We love this Art Deco Engagement Ring for various reasons. We have both prong and bezel set stones accenting the 6.5mm center stone. It is shown as a round, but any size or shape could be used. Adorning the accents is milgrain, giving the ring an elegant flare.

Floral Split Shank Engagement Ring

This Floral Split Shank Engagement Ring is one of the more unique nature inspired engagement rings we have created. In this stunner, the shank splits from a bezel set stone at 10 & 2 O’clock. From there, two diamond crusted leaves arch up to the center stone. The center stone in our Floral Split Shank Engagement Ring is shown as a 5mm round, but other shapes and sizes can be used.
Found over 100 years prior in particles taken from an Arizona meteor cavity by Dr. Henri Moissan, silicon carbide starts its adventure through a transformational procedure to progress toward becoming moissanite—a fantastic gem of the 21st century leading to the moissanite engagement ring. At first, he erroneously distinguished the precious stone like a diamond; however in 1904 he recognized the gems as silicon carbide. Artificial silicon carbide had been incorporated in the lab by Edward G. Acheson only two years before Moissan’s disclosure. Presently, through the blend of cutting edge innovation and exclusive procedure, moissanite is made in labs these days. Increasingly used around the world, moissanite is loved for its extraordinary fire and light scattering properties. Today, moissanite is second only to diamond as the number one stone for engagement rings.

MOISSANITE ENGAGEMENT RING DURABILITY

Moissanite is harder than ruby, sapphire or emerald—second in hardness just to the diamond. The mineral type of silicon carbide was named moissanite out of appreciation for Moissan later on in his life.

Harry Potter Inspired Owl Engagement Ring

This is another of our diamond owl engagement ring inspired by a film we aren’t supposed to name….but oh well. We just love owls too much. This version has 1.5mm stones in the band rather than the 2mm in the our other version, making it a little more feminine.

Modern Split Shank Engagement Ring

This Split Shank Modern Engagement Ring is an elegant design you won’t find anywhere else. 2 of the prongs are formed by the shank and the other two appear out of nowhere for a dramatic effect.

Making an altogether new and novel classification of gem and adornments, moissanite engagement ring stone artificially known as silicon carbide—is both uncommonly splendid and incredibly exceptional. Accepted to have been conveyed to earth by a shooting star 50,000 years back in follow sums, moissanite engagement ring is presently made in a careful research facility procedure and afterward hand-faceted by ace jewel cutters to draw out its remarkable regular brightness. Set into a fine bit of adornments, moissanite produces the most flame you’ve at any point seen—it’s not normal for anything found normally on earth.

Moissanite, in its regular structure, is extremely uncommon. It has been found just in a couple of places, from upper mantle shake to shooting stars. Stdies have shown that moissanite occurs in natural formations suchs as xenoliths and ultramafic shakes like kimberlite and lamproite. It has likewise been found in presolar grains in carbonaceous chondrite shooting stars.

MOISSANITE ENGAGEMENT RING HARDNESS

Engagement rings can experience the ill effects of an active or clumsy lifestlye. Fortunately, for those that use their hands a lot, we create our custom jewelry to be very durable and sturdy. Moissanite engagement rings are one of the most durable as moissanite is a very hard stone. Because of the quality of the carbon bonds in silicon carbide, lab-developed moissanite is one of the hardest known substances and has a hardness score of 9.25 on the Mohs Size of Hardness. Only diamonds are harder. These intense gemstones are likewise generally impervious to heat, so rest guarantee that your engagement ring will be fine if it needs to be repaired with a torch

DIAMOND VS MOISSANITE

Diamonds and moissanites are frequently compared side by side. Tot he eye, they look very similar. But under closer examination, you can see that these two stones have a few key differences. The clearest contrast is that moissanite and diamond are two altogether gems with particularly unique physical makeups. These give them different physical qualities and optical properties. Moissanite’s compound creation is silicon carbide and diamond is made out of carbon. While both shimmer, the moissanite engagement ring really has a higher splendor than diamond when you think about refractive records. The refractive index of moissanite engagement ring (2.65-2.69) is about 10% higher than diamond’s RI of 2.42. Not exclusively does radiant moissanite engagement ring have a higher refractive file than diamond, yet in addition, its scattering (fire) estimated at 0.104 is about over multiple times more than diamond’s (0.044).

This crossover engagement ring is surely a stunner with it’s crossing bands of Diamonds and Gold flowing into the halo surrounding the diamond in the center. We could also make it with stones on both shanks.

Sculptural 6 Prong Solitaire Engagement Ring

This Sculptural Solitaire Engagement Ring is a type of bypass ring that we just love. The shank is a wave of motion is it travels from one end of the ring to the opposite end. The 6 prong basket securely holds even the largest stone intact.
Curiously, diamond has a characteristic proclivity to oil, which develops on a diamond’s surface and can lessen its brilliance appearance. Whereas moissanite is more averse to absorbing oil, shining brilliantly notwithstanding when it hasn’t been cleaned in quite a while. Moissanite engagement ring is likewise stronger than diamond and less inclined to separate into two pieces when power is connected. Additionally, the present usually advanced wedding band diamond is lower in quality, and moissanite engagement ring excellent cutting is clear by the way moissanite eclipses numerous diamonds. One of the key contrasts among moissanite engagement ring and diamond is that moissanite stones reflect light in an alternate manner to diamonds. Because of their faceting, radiant moissanite jewels make flashes of light that have a rainbow impact, though diamonds produce three kinds of light: brightness, scattering and sparkle.

MOISSANITE VS CZ

At first look, moissanite engagement ring takes after diamond and may be confused with diamond, a manufactured diamond or diamond substitute. Indeed, moissanite engagement ring isn’t a diamond resemble the other alike or a ‘me-as well’ simulant like cubic zirconia. Moissanite is a totally special gem with exceptionally attractive characteristics. Furthermore, when contrasted with cubic zirconia or CZ (maybe the world’s most mainstream diamond simulant), the distinctions are self-evident, and the uniqueness of moissanite engagement ring turns out to be significantly progressively alluring.

Asymmetrical Cathedral Engagement Ring

This Modern Cathedral Engagement Ring is a new twist on the cathedral engagement ring. There are 2 rows of diamonds on the opposite sides of the band, which is a little cool, but then those rows are interrupted by swooping lines of stones that go up the sides of the cathedral. It is a very dramatic effect.

3 Stone Engagement Ring

YES…WE KNOW THIS IS A MOISSANITE PAGE, BUT THIS ONE WOULD WORK VERY WELL WITH MOISSANITE. This Sapphire 3 Stone Engagement Ring is a stunning take on an old classic. There are diamond accents on both the sides and top of the ring. What we like about this one is how the prongs are formed and they you can see through the ring.

CZ is a reasonably reproduced diamond resembles the other alike and is the second rate in pretty much every gemological property to moissanite engagement ring. CZ is mass delivered under a heap of exchange names and advanced with different brand names. Contrasted with a moissanite engagement ring, CZ has a lower Mohs hardness. It scratches and scrapes effectively, which makes numerous shoppers state that CZ loses its surface radiance after only a couple of years. Despite the fact that CZ professes to scratch glass, numerous gemstones and gems are positioned above the glass in hardness and can without much of a stretch scratch glass. Genuinely, there is no correlation between moissanite engagement ring and CZ. Moissanite constantly emerges as unrivaled.

PROPERTIES OF MOISSANITE

If you take a Diamond and a Moissanite with the same diameters, a moissanite will always weigh less. It doesn’t really matter, as moissanite is sold by the size and not by weight. However, this information can be useful when trying to differentiate between the 2 stones.

Art Deco Engagement Ring

MOISSANITE ENGAGEMENT RING COLOR

Reviews

I found Valeria custom jewelry online and when I saw their awesome work on their website I knew this was the best place for custom jewelry. I live in New York and distance was no problem, I contacted Valeria jewelry by email with pictures of a ring that I wanted rubies mounted in and the price was very competitive so I doubled the order last minute and I sent two rings for custom work done, which they said was no problem. So I mailed the two rings and a few weeks later I have the rings and they look great! Job well done to Valeria for the custom jewelry and I can’t thank them enough they surpassed my expectations for the rings. Getting custom jewelry done through the mail was easy safe and secure by insured usps. I look forward to having more jewelry done in the future at Valeria and am completely happy with my rings. Their website has good examples of their work so I am sure no matter the distance or need they will get it done quickly and with a good price. Thanks again Valeria !

I found Lucas via a google search, and his reviews honestly seemed too good to be true. I reached out to inquire about setting an antique diamond from a pendant into an engagement solitaire ring, and enlarging an antique wedding band. He responded to my initial email within minutes, and very quickly gave me design choices and an estimate for each. After dropping off the items, the rings were ready within 5 days - and they look better than I was even hoping for. His prices are exceptionally reasonable, and he gave full market value for the scrap gold my diamond was originally set in. I highly, highly recommend working with Lucas for the ease, responsiveness, and exceptional results he provides.

Lucas was absolutely amazing with his level of attention and detail to not only what I was looking for in the creative and concept stage, but throughout the process as a whole. We went back and forth for weeks about setting design and material, and specific gem selection and he was communicative and patient the entire time. Absolutely recommend he and his teams services.
