Please recommend a Los Angeles jeweler to design my engagement ring! General questions about custom jewelry as well.
I am very very happily newly engaged, and I have a very specific idea of what I would like in an engagement ring. My ideal ring is white gold, with a small (4-5mm) oval sapphire in the center, and a half-moon shaped moissanite stone on either side. So, sort of like a combination between this ring
and this ring
Our budget is $1000 for the ring, which seems very doable based on our research, but please let me know if you think we're being unrealistic. Less expensive is better, of course. A little bit more expensive is okay too.
Are jewelers willing to work with moissanite? I would really prefer not to have diamonds, but would consider diamonds in order to have a ring I love.
My girlfriend (both female) is planning to get an engagement necklace with a pendant that is the same as my ring, so we'd like it if the jeweler could design both. Will most jewelers be able to do this?
The linked ring is the only ring with the half moon shaped stones I have seen - is this unusual/difficult/expensive?
We're willing to go anywhere in the LA area or order online.
Thanks for any help you can give us!
