My engagement setting has sapphires that would flank the main stone. I am worried that a mossanite center stone would not be white or absorb the color from the sapphires. Does anyone have a mossanite stone by another type of stone? If so does it still look clear when next to another color? Thank you

I have a moissanite but I don’t have any colored gemstones in my ring. I can tell you that I’ve never heard of moissanite absorbing color from colored stones set in the same ring and I’ve seen other bees rings with sapphire and moissanite that look stunning. If anything the contrast between the sapphire and moissanite will make look whiter. I suggest getting an enhanced moissanite, forever brilliant or amora since you seem to want a more colorless stone. I have heard that moissanite can pick up the metal color it’s set in which is why most people recommend setting it in white gold or platinum.

I have a ring exactly as you described, see below. I was initially worried about colours being reflected in the moissy too, but that is not a problem at all! I can’t see any reflected blue in the moissy under any lighting, and believe me, I’ve been looking REALLY closely!

I don’t have any moissanite, but eventually I would like to get one for a RHR.
From everything I’ve read, moissanite can be identical to diamonds to the untrained eye — if you get high quality moissy. So I think you should be fine as long as you purchase your moissanite from a vendor that has a really good return/exchange policy. That way if you don’t like it for any reason, you can exchange or return it until you find a moissy that you feel good about.

Beautiful ring! I’ve never seem moissy in person, that I know of, but I sure love the way it looks in pics!

Thank you all for the info. Great help! Dobedoop does anyone notice your stone is not a diamond? I really do want my ring to look as a traditional diamond er.

Metal colour would play a larger role with moissy, than coloured side stones. But for overall warmth, the cut of the stone is also important. RBs are the whitest by far.

I’ve never had anyone question whether it’s a diamond or not. Though if someone says “wow, what a beautiful diamond!” I do correct them and tell them that it’s a moissanite.
I don’t wear jewellery at all so I don’t really know what diamonds look like up close but from a quick comparison against my friends’ engagement rings, I don’t notice a difference.
