So I’ve never saw a moissanite ring before IRL but I’ve read about them enough to make me want one…
Needless to say money is tight during the wedding planning and I’d rather pair a blingy wedding band with my ering than a plain band. My ering is a F color emerald cut diamond. Do you think I could put a moissanite band next to it or would it be too noticeable? I can’t find any local places that have the mossy band I want so I can try it on.
Please post pictures if you have mixed the two stones! 😉

I have a mix, but mine’s opposite! Moissy center and diamond band (jeweler didn’t work with small moissys). I think it would look great! You won’t have to worry about the color difference since the moissys will be smaller in the band. Go for it! Here’s a pic of mine and my 1.5 eqv moissy is NOT enhanced! (the sidestones are G/H in color)

I thought about doing this as well to save money on the band, but after checking moissaniteco, I didn’t find that going with a moissy band saved enough money to not just go ahead with a diamond band also, since thats what I really wanted anyways. In white gold, I found a diamond 13 stone 0.4 ct semi eternity band for $685. The moissy ring most similar to it was http://www.moissaniteco.com/low-profile-moissanite-shared-prong-eternity-ring-p-10687.html, except that the diamonds only went half way around. At $470 vs $685 (or $1100, since I got platinum to match my ering), for my wedding band, I felt the difference was worth spending and not something I should cheap out on.
But heres a moissy next to a diamond: Top moissy, bottom F color center. The picture is yellow tinted since it was taken without a flash. The flash always washes everything out.

I got the low profile eternity band from moissaniteco, and had it custom made to be 3/4 eternity, 14k white gold. it was only $430, no tax, no shipping!
I think it looks perfectly fine next to my diamond. the small ones are pretty much colorless, you only have to worry about color with large moissanites, 1 ct or larger.
I think it is much higher quality than a diamond band in the same price range. I saw some super cheap diamond bands on amazon, and some of the reviews were that they were noticeably dull and/or grey. my friend has a $200 diamond ring, and I personally think it’s pretty dull looking -I would never tell her that though! I’d much rather pay for super sparkly moissy and moissaniteco’s good craftsmanship any day!
