I'll admit: I was skeptical about purchasing moissanite. My fiancé and I looked into several different options (including synthetic diamond). It was actually him who made the final decision on moissanite. However, I have absolutely NOTHING bad to say about the engagement ring I now love and adore. The center stone was GIANT --2.16 carats (something we never could've afforded had it been diamond) --and it's surrounded by equally gorgeous smaller stones. And the best part? NO ONE can tell the difference! I've even taken it to local jewelry stores (had to have it resized) and until they actually tested the stone with their tools, they couldn't tell a difference. In all, the ring cost about $1,600, and from my estimates, it would've been about $25,000 had it been diamond. LADIES: don't settle on an engagement ring that has a small stone or a setting your don't love because you can't afford it. This was such a fantastic alternate route to buying diamonds, and the quality of both the band itself and the stones are incomparable. And, from what my fiancé has said, the purchasing process was a breeze. I would definitely buy from Schubach Jewelers again!

I got my ring from anothe jewlery store in the Chandler Mall, and they really messed it up. The center stone was not centered and the jems on the side of my ring were glued in not secured at all. I brought my ring to Gi Gi and she took care of us. She had an expert look at my ring and figure out what was the best way to make it last a lifetime. She was very thoughtful and wanted to make my ring last a lifetime. Im so happy I went to her and would not change a thing. The best part of bringing my ring to her is now she is my person to go to for check-ups. Every 6 months I cant bring my ring to her and not to the crappy company I first got the ring from. She is the best person to deal with and is perfect for any job you have. She is so much better then dealing with the mall stores. We are planning on getting all of our jewlery from her.
Isaac Jewelers is located at Kierland Commons. Its an outside shopping center, sort of the fashion district/ Rodeo Drive of Scottsdale, AZ. Isaac Jewelers is a very nice boutique store. My husband always gets me my Birthday present there, when we visit Scottsdale. The owner of Isaac Jewelers, Frank Isaac runs a really nice store. Wayne is the GM, we deal with him directly.. most times. Isaac Jewelers is a great shop! There are a couple of other really high end Jewelery stores in Scottsdale, but they are located in the Arcadia area- which is not close to where we stay when visiting. -Elizabeth
