I agree with what the etsy people said, and wouldn’t go for that combo. it seems that the smaller the stone, the lower the sparkle. so small white sapphires might look super dull next to a large moissanite. if anything, I’d reverse it: large sapphire surrounded by small moissys. 

be sure to get a good quality white sapphire. I used to think all lab created ones were basically the same, but I heard that low quality ones can look good at first but grow duller after a few years — not sure how though. maybe they cloud like CZs? a good quality lab or natural sapphire will still be an economical diamond alternative for you. 

or if you’re set on moissanite as your center stone, there are ways to tone down the sparkle. maybe the cut? also, some settings will let less light in – such as certain types of bezel settings.

girlywhirly:  I’m not sure how combining one white sparkly stone with a different white sparkly stone is going to tone down the sparkle? How about a less sparkly stone or cut? Like an emerald cut? Or a dark blue sapphire or something?
