    I don’t know why, but I don’t love the purple and black or blue combo. Therefore I most prefer the moissanite side stones. I would, in all honesty, do the enhancer in moissy too.

    Have you tried green accents? I think peridot or grossular green garnet could look fabulous with the richness of the purple sapphire.

    I like the third option, very pretty!

    Black diamonds aren’t my personal style, but I love the “cross” option for the accent stones; I think it would look stunning when you wear the full set together.  Have you considered red (ruby, garnet, etc.) accents?

    I don’t really like the blue stones with the purple center.  It’s too much color, and since they’re all the same “brightness,” they kind of take away from the center.  Actually, blue side stones with moissy in the enhancer might be enought to break up all the color.  Otherwise, I think you need something paler on the sides and the enhancer, so my favorite is with the moissy, but I’d also suggest moissy in the enhancer. 

    I’m not a fan of the black.  It just makes everything look so dark.  And the cross is a little jarring for some reason.  

    You said you don’t like the paler greens.  Have you tried any other pale colors?

    I like the look of the moissy, but as PPs said, I think it should be on the enhancer too.

    I think if you really want dark accent stones then I’d go with blue sapphire with moissy center. Black diamonds are pretty but they are just soo dark. I think blue sapphire would look better and add some color. Ruby would look nice too

    #3 will make your center stone pop the most.

    shadowysewist:  If it was me, I’d do blue topaz accents on the enhancer (or maybe aquamarine,) and moissy on the band. 

    I just feel like the purple and blue sapphires arent matchy enough (the purple is very vivid, and blue sapphire tends to be more bland, imo) and I dont like the black diamonds with the purple.

    allyfally:  ITA about blue topaz or aquamarine in the enhancer and moissy on the e-ring band. 

    shadowysewist:  Have you ever played around on Gemvara.com? They won’t have the same set, but you can get a feel for color combos. Luckily, it looks like your purple sapphire color will be very close to the amethyst color they have on their website. I wish they offered a variety of sapphire colors!

    The color of surrounding of colored side stones will transfer/reflect onto your center stone.  Unless you want to make your purple more darkish or bluer tinted, I think all white moissanite in the enhancer and side stones will be lovely.  Or choose a pale color for the third color.

    Another idea, how about a light purple like lavender or lilac as the accent stones? Or can you use same center stone in the enhancer band? I think that would look quite lovely.
