@MrsGtoBe39: newer moissanite is much whiter than the stones that were produced a couple years ago, due to improvements in growing the rough. I’m sure you would have very little trouble matching the moissanite to diamond side stones, as long as the side stones are in the typical color range around G-H. If you’re still worried, make sure to choose a brilliant cut like RB or cushion instead of a fancy or antique cut.
And don’t listen to obsessive moissanite-bashers who impose themselves on every thread just to spew “information” that nobody wants to hear. I recommend The Facet Lounge as a great forum to learn much more about moissanite without having to deal with that crap.

My e-ring is 1.25 unenhanced moissy and my wedding band has diamonds. I don’t notice a color difference at all, in any light. I don’t have the greatest pics, but here are some pics.

@gemgirl6: I didn’t use trickery to make my moissanite look more like my diamonds…that’s a picture in my office on a cloudy day. Definitely not my best. It just doesn’t look different.
Here’s the most unflattering photo ever, and a shot of a previous ring I owned with a moissanite center and diamond side stones. Both moissanites are unenhanced. Maybe I’m not picky enough, but as far as I can tell, they look fine next to each other…
I love how any moissanite thread goes south. Lol.

@Someday_Mrs_Maguire: I love how it turned out! It was a cluster center originally.

@Someday_Mrs_Maguire: Wow, I usually hate bezel set, but that’s beautiful!
Just wondering, has anyone ever experienced a jeweler throwing a hissy about setting a moissanite? I hope I’m not going to run into that…

@Sandeek: Wow your ring is gorgeous!

On the topic of a moissy center and diamonds in the setting, any of you have 7.5 or 8 mm FB cushions in diamond settings? I have the same question as the OP, so rather than making another post on the same subject, I’ll just tag along for the ride.
@MrsGtoBe39 – Great topic/question, by the way!
Originally, the setting was going to have G-H, SI diamonds–I think one or maybe two pointers–but I wanted VS to better match moissy’s clarity, though with that size it probably doesn’t matter. Maybe I should be more concerned about the colour of them with the moissanite center stone?

Hi, original poster here…and would just like to thank everyone who tried to keep the thread on topic. I’ve done quite a bit of research on moissy or I would not have made the very personal decision that I prefer it to diamonds. Also, my boyfriend already has purchased an unenhanced stone so there’s no point in me looking at forever brilliant or amora. I would prefer a moissanite setting, but I understand that he would prefer the benefits of a brick and mortar jeweler (none of which around me seem to offer moissanite) so I was just interested in knowing about diamond settings in case that’s the route we go with. Thanks so much for everyone’s helpful replies! I haven’t figured out how to reply multiple people at once..or if you can..but I love both rings and they look that they are the same type of stone. I definitely feel better now! I also appreciate the advice to match the color grade with the jeweler, I hadn’t thought of that! thanks again!

@MrsGtoBe39: If you click on “reply” at the bottom of someone’s comment, you can reply specifically to that person and it will just show up in the comment box. You can click the “reply” on multiple bee’s comments and they will all show up in your comment box at the bottom. Also, you don’t have to tell us you are the OP (original poster) because there is a green outline around all of your comments so it is easier to find. You’ll get the hang of it! 🙂
Anyway, I have an enhanced OEC moissy in a diamond setting. I honestly don’t know the color of the diamonds in either my engagment ring or wedding ring. There is a difference sometimes, but it is very common for people to have different colored stones even in all diamond settings.

Okay, this thread is seriously making me drool… beautiful ring, @luckylady3090! I’d love to see some bees post any fancy colored moissanites…

I don’t have a moissy, but I would imagine it would depend on the quality of the diamonds in the setting. You’d want to try to match the color as closely as possible. But that’s true even when you have a diamond center stone. As long as there isn’t a huge difference in the color, no one will notice.

Sorry if I’m misreading, but did you say you’ve had your moissy for 10+ yrs? I didn’t know it was available all the way back then! Very interesting to see it increasing in popularity. I would have thought it would be much more popular by now if it was available a decade ago.
To all the other posters, beautiful rings!
