Charles & Colvard Forever One Loose Moissanite DEF Colourless
Beautiful and simple ring - I love wearing it every day!
My husband and I chose this ring together and so happy we chose Lily Arkwright - they were super helpful, sent sample photos and made the whole experience easy and exciting!
Beyond proud of and IMPRESSED with my moissanite engagement ring as I was on Day 1! Mine has got the C&C hearts and arrows round cut and the stone is 0.81ct.
Before we bought this I was feeling greedy and thought maybe I would prefer the 1.04ct instead.. HOWEVER, now that I've worn the 0.81ct for a month I can honestly say it's the right size for me! Trust me, ladies, it is big enough to be easily noticed even on photos and already getting caught on things... Given how much it sparkles, I don't think I would feel safe wearing a 1ct out everyday especially in the evenings....
I was also worried about the band being too narrow for my finger... Thankfully, this was so not a problem! You can see how it looks compared to my 2mm wedding band!
In all honesty, the ring itself was SUPERB! It's SO SPARKLY that I can't stop looking at it! (photo doesn't do it justice) Once I was waiting for the tube and saw how the rainbow colours were just flashing away and it made me almost nervous wearing it out!!! lol
Bottom line - If you are looking for an ethical alternative for diamond and thinking about getting a Moissanite ring - LOOK NO FURTHER! You will be OVER THE MOON with this!!! Their customer service was FAB! Resizing was easy!
Yes, I did also receive my C&C warranty card with the ring and a nice classy ring box with it.
Lastly, Lily Arkwright, please open a showroom in London - it would be such a treat to see more of your rings! But also probably too dangerous for my new husband's wallet................
My partner and I visited the Lily Arkwright showroom to try on the Giselle, but ended up falling in love with the simplicity of the Grace. Kate was so helpful and patient as I tried on various sizes of Moissanite stones. We settled on the 8mm Hearts & Arrows in yellow gold in the end! Shipping was very quick and customer service amazing from start to finish. I still can't believe how beautiful my ring is. I'm obsessed! Thank you so much xxx
This is a lovely ring from every angle. The band is nice and solid and the details of the basket are fine and harmonious. I generally don't like cathedral settings but this is beautifully designed and isn't too tall. I opted for yellow gold and an 8x6 Forever One. The colours in the stone are gorgeous and the cut and polish are outstanding. The service was also fantastic, thank you so much!
This ring is absolutely beautiful , I haven't stop staring at it since I've had it on my finger. It sparkles so beautifully in the sunlight, it's just stunning! Couldn't be happier, thank you 😊
The ring is gorgeous and the customer service is perfect!
A big thanks to the whole team!
If you are still considering to place an order, don't waste your time, GO ahead!
【P.S. Kate you are the best! ;-) 】
My fiancée and I were blown away by the service we received from Lily Arkwright. The production time was slightly longer than expected due to covid but we were kept updated. We debated the Juliet and Julietta for ages before deciding on Julietta and my fiancée says she's so glad she did. The slightly higher setting makes the moissanite look slightly bigger than other lower set rings we had seen in person without being bulky or so high that it snags. The platinum gives it a lovely weight too. My fiancée wanted to add this is a 1ct moissanite for reference for those in lockdown working out which size they'd like!
This ring is absolutely perfect, and everything I could have asked for! The service was outstanding and we couldn't fault it. Thank you! A special thank you to Phillip for helping my now fiancé sort my dream ring!! :)
My partner proposed with this ring. He knew an ethical ring was important to me so opted for the moissanite centre stone. The sparkle this has is absolutely unreal and I get so many questions on where its from! The service recieved was excellent, I needed the ring resizing and this wasn't an issue. I wouldn't hesitate to buy from Lily Arkwright again :)
I had mulled over the thought of a moissanite ring for a long time. I’d considered lab diamonds, but my budget led me to look at J-K diamonds and I just wasn’t happy to compromise on the colour. I had then settled on a ring from the Charles and Colvard site, only to find huge UK shipping taxes added at the checkout! Not willing to pay the extra, I shopped around on google and found Lily Arkwright. A UK jeweller who used the Charles and Colvard stones.
I immediately got in touch with them via email to discuss different settings and different metals. All in all, I’m pretty sure we exchanged about 30 emails and I’m almost certain I must have bored Jennifer and Kate to tears. I felt like I was becoming a stalker or a creepy pen pal. However... every time they got back to me about my little questions - ‘can we remove this bit of the setting?’, ‘can I have a warmer stone?’, ‘could we make the band wider?’, ‘can you quote it in platinum and 9ct gold?’ - I can honestly say I got the most warm, engaging response I have ever had from any company. Bear in mind I manage communications and branding at a £10 million pound + turnover company, and I can honestly say that I have never felt such a valued customer anywhere. I felt they would have bent over backwards to make me happy.
The setting I ended up choosing was not one of my original choices (I picked Laina Rae initially), but instead one recommended to me by Kate, who suggested we could have it adapted into a lower setting to suit exactly what I was looking for. I wouldn’t have considered Lottie from the stock images, because I wanted something quite discreet and set low, but the final ring is EXACTLY what I was after.
For reference, I custom ordered Lottie in platinum with a GHI/near colourless Charles and Colvard hearts and arrows stone (7mm/1.31ct) in size Q. I like the warmth, it looks closer to a diamond that is in my budget. Plus the hearts and arrows cut helps tame some of the dazzling rainbow fire from a brilliant moissanite.
Would absolute recommend the people and the jewellery here 100%. Will be back for Aurelia in a few months. All my love to the team and everyone who helped me find the perfect ring. You truly are fantastic at your job.
Fantastic experience buying a engagement ring, customer service (Philip dealt with me) were great and helped keep updated throughout and a free upgrade to a bigger stone. The ring itself is great quality and has received many compliments. Would highly recommend the ring and Lily Arkwright to anyone thinking of purchasing a ring.
My fiance got me a bespoke ring using this band but with an Oval mossanite, its absolutely stunning i love it, its so shiny and just perfect. I'd been suggesting lily arkright to him for a while so I'm glad he picked up on the hints :), the mossanite in the picture is a 2.10 oval incase anyone was wondering (the gem itself is quite big but I do think it looks a bit bigger in the picture)
Absolutely in love with it and can't stop looking at it :)
This ring is absolutely gorgeous, I couldn't be happier with it 💕
My ring arrived yesterday and is stunning, it far exceeds my expectations. I had to wait for it to be made but it was really worth waiting for. Jennifer was brilliant and kept me fully updated, which i really appreciated , it was ready early and arrived in lovely packaging. Thank you Lily Awkwright I will definitely point my husband in your direction again!!
Celine - Charles & Colvard 1.5ct Pear Solitaire Ring. I am so pleased with the ring my husband bought me, it is beautiful. I have arthritis in my hands and swollen joints meant I could no longer wear my diamond cluster, so I wanted something to replace it. I didn't want to pay diamond prices and found this site totally by accident. Jennifer was so helpful throughout the process and kept me updated, arrived early in lovely packaging, really impressed with the service. But mostly I just love the ring, its beautiful.?.thank you Lily Arkwright.
