Moissanite Engagement Ring - Forever One - Recycled 14k White Gold, Made to Order - Eco-Friendly Diamond Alternative, Made to Order
This classically beautiful design features a 7mm Forever One moissanite (1.25 carat equivalent) in a tapered bezel on a 2mm round hammered band. All of the metal used in this ring's construction is 14k white gold from recycled sources.
Please be aware that I do not rhodium plate my white gold, so it will have a warmer tone than the rhodium plated versions you may have seen in mass marketed jewelry. If you want to order something in white gold and like the bright-white look that rhodium plating offers, you should be able to have your ring plated locally after you receive it. This is a non-permanent treatment that will likely need to be re-applied every couple of years to maintain a bright white finish.
As you can see in the fourth listing photo, this ring has a notch at the base of the bezel on one side, to allow it to stack nicely with a matching band. I can make yours either with or without the notch.

Moissanite was originally born from a meteorite over 50,000 years ago, and was first discovered by Dr. Henri Moissan in 1893 in material collected from a meteor crater in Arizona. These incredibly brilliant sparkling crystals might have been considered "diamonds from space," but Dr. Moissan's research actually identified them as a new mineral find - silcon carbide, whose chemical composition is SiC (diamonds are made from carbon). This stunning jewel is extremely rare, and almost impossible to find in nature. So rare, in fact, that the dream of using it in jewelry was an impossibility until man discovered a way to create and craft these incredible silicon carbide crystals here on Earth.
With more fire than any popular gemstone (including diamond), no other stone or jewel compares to Moissanite. In fact, fire can be measured scientifically and moissanite has nearly 2.4 times the fire of diamond. Moissanite also has 10% more brilliance and luster than diamond. Proven to be harder than ruby, sapphire or emerald and second only to diamond, moissanite is also extraordinarily heat resistant, durable, and tough. It is extremely resistant to scratching, abrasion, breaking and chipping. And because these phenomenal stones are grown in a laboratory, you don't have to worry about the ethical problems involved with harvesting diamonds and other mined gems.
This design uses a Forever One moissanite, the very best of all the moissanites, with a color rating comparable to a D-E-F rated diamond (a rating considered colorless by GIA standards).
