I have a FB moissanite engagement ring and a diamond wedding band. They had just stopped making FB and didn’t make it as small as I wanted. We used warmer diamonds so the color wasn’t off.

msmanchoo78 :  I have read that smaller moissanite are more prone to brittleness thus there are jewelers who won’t use them in settings. In addition if one needs to be replaced, the ring must be sent off as moissanite is not readily available.  Aside from that,  do you really want to settle for a diamond simulant wedding band next to your gorgeous diamond e-ring just because it’s a little cheaper? Maybe you do, but you may want to consider that you’re going to be wearing your wedding ring forever….it might be worth a splurge.

Have you looked into lab diamonds?

mrstodd2bee :  

Why does exploring other stones have to be “settling”? Why can’t a Moissanite band be just as gorgeous as a diamond? There are plenty of bees on here who have stones and bands other that are not diamonds, and regardless of their reasoning behind it, I think it’s a bit offensive to say that they’re settling. 

 

I’m sorry if you meant no harm, but the diamond snobbery always puts me on edge.

 peacebethejourney :  *Any* stone can be gorgeous that’s very true. Cz/moissanite etc are both *beautiful* man-made stones created and manufactured for the express purpose of simulating a diamond.   Op wants the original/genuine diamonds  but is considering an imitation/simulant (moissanite) for its much cheaper price. Thus she’s willing to settle to get the price/stone size she desires….which is why I used that verbiage. There was no disrespect meant to you and others that have simulants such as moissanite or cz.

msmanchoo78 :  I personally would not mix the 2 because they reflect light in a totally different way. In most videos they try to make them look really similar but here is this one https://youtu.be/2aiUnAzknrM the pear shaped ring is the diamond obviously. Moissanites are beautiful, that’s why I have one, but their fire is sooo different from a diamond. Lots of green and yellow, purple, red, orange.. while a diamond’s sparkle is mostly white with some other colors occasionally. The “disco ball” effect is no joke – which is actually very pretty but I don’t think they would be good together.

I think it depends on the size of the moissanite you’re looking for. For a tiny pave band (2mm) it literally doesn’t matter what you have- Cz, moissanite, Diamond, they all basically look the same because they don’t reflect much light.

For thicker bands I think the moissanite is “just similar enough but different” to be a little weird… unless you have a much larger than usual e-ring that doesn’t have the same concentrated sparkle that smaller e-rings have. If both rings are super sparkly they will compete.

In general, small diamonds are so inexpensive that you probably won’t get much cost savings anyway. If I were you, I’d get a different piece of moissy jewelry if you need some of the sparkle in your life, and stick to a diamond band.
