    They are both beautiful! I’m 50\50 honestly, which I know isn’t helpful. I suppose I’d go with the moissy since its more durable maybe use the tourmaline for a RHR?

    I love mint stones in rose gold. Sooo beautiful. I love light mint sapphires. There’s a Bee who has the EidelPrecious mint green oval sapphire in a rose gold setting (I can’t remember if it also has a halo) and it’s soooooo pretty.

    Both stones are beautiful! I think you should set the blue tourmaline on the white gold band and maybe find a yellow gold setting for the mint moissy? I think that yellow gold (or even rose gold) would compliment that stone more than the white gold would

    Crap they’re both beautiful 😬 I guess I lean toward the blue because it’s slightly prettier in color, but the moissanite because of durability. Honestly, you can’t go wrong with either! Is that the natural color of moissanites or a colored variety (like the pink or blue or clear ones?)

    I say go with the one you like more. I have an onyx (6.5-7 on the mohs) and after a little over a year it hasn’t taken any damage. And I’m not very gentle on my hands.

    Wow, excuse me while I drool…

    I think I’d go with the moissanite, but I agree with PP’s that would look divine in rose gold…oh my word just thinking about it makes me jealous 

    Anyway, back to drooling…

    saukbee :  I love both blue and green stones but I would pick mossinate for the durability. I had a pink tourmaline and within a month it was chipped from everyday wear as an engagement ring. But that’s just my personal experience with the stone.

    Either one will be beautiful

    saukbee :  just out of interest….did you get the mossanite from aladdinscave on etsy? It’s very similar to one he sells 😊 I eyeball it often 😍

    saukbee :  I voted for the moissanite but they are both soooooo beautiful. Maybe look for a setting for the tourmaline with a halo or something similar that will protect the stone more, then wear it as a RHR?

    I would pick the green moissanite. It is very pretty and more durable than the tourmaline.

    I vote both as a moi et toi ring! πŸ˜‰ 

    I think I would go with the moissy because the color is more subtle and the stone is more durable…
