@Kriddlelouise:  i would think it would look different next to each other not in a good or bad way moissanite always looks like it has a yellow/green tint to me when i see it. that could be just me but thats how i know when i see a moissanite stone.

I’ve heard lots of moissanite owners say it looks great and no different but here’s a comparison pic from BTD. The whiter one is cz, but a warmer color cz I believe. Still, I can tell a huge difference and I don’t care for it personally. If you’re not bothered by the green/yellow/warmth then it might be a good option for you. I personally am too color sensitive.

@Kriddlelouise:  moissanite is a lovely man made jewel !so affordable. However there have been bees who posted that there cam be a noticable difference in color next to a diamond. Do a search on here. Jtv has some lovely moissanite bands.

dont forget to post a pic when u have it. sorry for all typos, on my phone.

I just ordered my forever brilliant wedding band and I have a 1.5 c diamond princess cut e-ring with a halo (no clue what the TCW is).   I should be getting it in a few weeks – I will send you picture when I get it!

I have a moissanite center with diamond sidestones, but I don’t think the sidestones are very white (maybe G-J?) and my moissy is 6mm.

If the stones on the eternity band are on the smaller side, I don’t think you’ll see much difference.  The differences between the two become more noticeable the bigger you go.

@HisNightOwl2014:  @Kriddlelouise:  

actually, when a moissanite is pretty small (like they would be in a wedding band), they don’t show any color at all. you also can’t even tell that they’re cut differently or really see any double refraction (I’ve looked for it).  

I think from what I heard, anything under 4mm will be like that. 

my band has 2mm moissanites, and my e-ring diamond is an E (colorless).  you can’t tell the difference at all. when I took my rings into my jeweler for work, she was pretty amazed. 

Edit: what is awesome about a moissanite wedding band is that it will sparkle like flawless diamonds. I think that if I had a slightly flawed diamond band of the same size, it would have cost more and not be nearly as sparkly as my moissanite band. and it only cost me $450!

@nerdybird:  +1 makes sense to me ; ) i notice right away the bigger the moissanite stone is the more i see the yellow/green sparkle.

@Kriddlelouise:  I have the opposite. I have a moissanite gemstone engagement ring next to a diamond wedding band. They look wwonderful together. I have a FB moissanite and it matches quite well with the diamonds.

@Kriddlelouise.  well, my ring came in today and it is HORRIBLE.  I will take pictures shortly.   I ordered forever brilliant from moissantebridal.com.  The stones are cloudy, off color and have almost NO fire.   They look plastic next to my engagement ring.   Horrible.    🙁
