    I think it depends on what look you’re going for.  Just remember that you’re dealing with two different gemstones, with different qualities.  From what I’ve seen, diamonds sparkle more white and moissys sparkle more rainbow.  I personally would prefer the moissy in the middle, but that’s because I favor the way the moissanite looks to the diamond.

    @octoberbaby:  Well moissys aren’t colorless, they have a faint yellow/gray/green hue depending on what light, what kind of moissy, etc.  From what I understand the Amora gems are almost colorless.  A diamond can be completely colorless, but you’d need to have a jeweler or someone with more knowledge of diamonds to tell you what kind of a gem you have.  At a glance, I don’t think the ring will look like two different gems, but if someone is really examining your ring, the stones will sparkle differently.  As for the size, I think you’d just have to go into a jeweler and see how it looks on your hand.

    i think go with either all diamond or all moissy. both sparkle differently and it would be jarring to the eye.

    I’d keep it symmetrical, so if you are getting two moissys, I’d put the diamond in the middle. I think having the side stones not match would be more noticeable.

    I don’t think mixing diamond with moissanite in the way you’re describing would be a very nice look. JMHO. I would go all one or the other. I’d just get a moissanite right hand ring if you love the stone.

    I think you would be fine with the diamond in the middle and moissies on either side, because that would be balanced, but I wouldn’t have one side stone moissy and one side stone diamond. It might look off balance. And your ring would be gigantic if you got a significantly larger moissy for the center stone!

    Since the stones are different, look somewhat different, and perform differently in various lighting conditions, I wouldn’t recommend to mix the two. They are different enough that they wouldn’t quite match and they are not different enough that the contrast would look good (think like having one navy stone and two black stones).

    Why do you want to use moissanite? Just because of affordability? I think if you use this as a center stone with two stones on the side, you could probably find some diamonds for side stones that fit whatever budget you have. Even if their quality is not the greatest, if their color is somewhat similar to your center stone, they will blend in with it better (and perform more or less similarly). Another alternative is colored gemstone sidestones. These would be affordable and would go better with your center stone.
