My fiance and I just started looking at wedding bands and I’m not finding anything I’m in love with that is also in my budget. I started looking at some moissanite wedding bands, but am unsure how that will look next to my diamond e-ring. I’m worried they won’t match or one will make the other look bad. Anyone have pictures they could share?
Here’s my engagment ring. Plain shank halo, round .66 ct diamond centerstone, size 5.5

If you buy enhanced moissanite you shouldn’t notice much colour difference, but the sparkle/fire difference will definitely be apparent in certain lights.

@lastlastfirst: you have a lovely diamond engagement ring, personally I would not couple that with a sim. Even enhanced moissanite doesn’t simulate a colorless diamond-its more warm tinged. I know that’s probably not what you want to hear but I would get a stand in thin plain wh gold band-until I saved enough to be able to comfortable afford the genuine diamond band I really wanted. This is your wedding ring and you’re going to wear it forever, would not settle unless absolutely had no choice. My 2c
Let us know how it goes!

I think if you got the amora moissanite you probably wont be able to be able to tell that much of a difference. also depending on the size of the stones in your band are.

From what I saw, the price of a moissy band doesnt really save enough to be worth it if you already have diamonds and want diamonds. The only real savings for moissy comes when you’re talking about a larger stones that you’d use as a center.

I also looked into moissanite and other stones. One thing that deterred me from the forever brilliant moissanite was that the company that makes them has no transparency in terms of their manufacturing process. I went to their website and called and spoke with one of their representatives. If you are concerned at all about potential radiation from irradiated stones and the duration of half-lives, I would urge you to consider another alternative. However, that is a decision that I came to that was right for me, so of course, this is just food for thought depending on what you want and what you feel comfortable with. Sorry, I have no pics, but I am looking forward to seeing other pics posted!

I’m abit late but I have a 1.1ct cushion diamond vs1 colour – it’s just beautiful and originally my now DH set it into a plain very thin platinum setting. It never felt right on my hand I wear very chunky jewellery because I have thin thinking fingers and a lot of real estate to full between knuckles so i finally talked him into a reset. I chose a moissanite eternity band that moissyco modified to an e ring that would sit with my moissanite wedding ring.
I can see a colour difference but it doesn’t bother me. I love the sparkle and fire and colour of the moissanites. So much so I’ve ordered a moissanite e rinroad a second honker set 😉
and now for some pics for you:

In some lighting there’s is no difference but when my diamond is clean it’s definitely whiter.
hope this helps!

@lastlastfirst: I have a 1.25ct moissy center with .90ct in a diamond setting. I think it looks fantastic, but I am slightly biased . If you do mix diamonds and moissanite, just make sure the color grades are close. So for example, if you have an H color moissanite, you want to make sure the diamonds are G, H, or I in color so that they blend. Here are some pics:
