Hmm. I have a moissanite half eternity band with round stones, and I also have an engagement ring (different relationship) with a round centre stone.  When I put them on together, the sparkle is clearly different, perhaps not to a passing glace but yes.

Now, with the band you’re looking for, the bagettes will sparkle differently than a brilliant so I’m not sure you’ll have the same visual difference.  I also imagine that the bagettes won’t face up as white as round brilliants, so that is something to consider (ie. the colour of the engagement ring stones vs. the moissanite stones).

Honestly, without seeing them together I wouldn’t say no but I would really lean to getting a plain band now and changing the band out later if it’s an issue of affordability. Or perhaps having one bagette white and 2 coloured.

Moissanite sparkles in a rainbow, but baguette cuts cut down on the sparkle factor. I think they would look great together. You could also get white sapphire instead. They are forever stones like moissanite and diamonds, but their sparkle is more similar to a diamond. They are often cheaper than moissanite or diamond bands.

Here are my sapphire rings (black and white sapphires. There are baguette side stones, princess cuts, and a round brilliant. The set was very inexpensive. I got it on eBay to see if I like the size of the center stone.

I’d check with MoissaniteCo to see if they have a wedding band that looks like this; they sometimes even do custom work.

However, I think whether or not it will be obviously different than your diamond e-ring will rest in the color of your diamond. If your diamond is in the H-K range, the baguettes should be fine, but if it’s whiter then I would lean away from moissanite as step-cut moissanite shows more color than brilliant cuts like modern rounds or modern cushions.

IMO they will look slightly different, like black and navy together.

Could you reduce the quality of the baguettes to get it affordable in diamond? For example, it looks like the middle baguette is partially covered by the engagement center stone. You could reduce clarity in the middle baguette, say by having an inclusion on one side, and then wear the wedding ring with the inclusion part under the engagement ring stone. Also, remember, prices are negotiable and don’t bother working with a jeweler who won’t negotiate.

Your engagement ring would also look beautiful with an all-metal band.
