I don’t think there will be any visible difference.  Go for it!  Beautiful band.

I heard that for melee, moissy are not very recommended since it not cut as good as the big one. I might be wrong though…

I’m currently considering between lab diamond vs moissy and just got quote from stargems. it was $350 vs $270 so not that much different, and according to her the lab diamond is whiter and have more sparkles. Hope it helps.

Smaller moissanites are thought to be brittle that’s why even a lot of moissanite rings use diamonds for smaller stones

ohiobee :  if you are open to chinese vendor, you can check tianyu or stargems. They are pretty popular among the bee!

Edit: but they only have round lab melee I think. I would also love a marquise lol..

ashleyroo :  

I’m not sure why you think they’re going to be brittle. It’s a stone with 9.25 hardness and a toughness higher than diamond. It’ll last longer than the prongs holding it.

 

The main reason to go with diamond pave is potentially more consistent cut quality, as well as a greater variety in available sizes as only C&C makes melee moissy. I think everything else is just myth.

Go with diamond if you can afford it. I’ve had two moissanite wedding bands with round stones and the moissy does not perform as well as my diamond wedding bands. I’ve had C&C as well as Chinese moissy wedding rings. Moissy melee sparkles but falls flat as compared to diamond melee.
