I am going to donate a set of earrings to a local charity. I have a platinum bezel with gold accent that need stones, about 6mm rounds and I want to put in something that is nice but not too expensive. Choices I have are
White Sapphire, Swiss blue topaz, amethyst,
maybe blue sapphire or (good color)moissanite if I go up a little on what I spend.
What color do you prefer?

That is really nice of you. I'm sure someone will appreciate any one of those stones.

I think the amethyst or blue sapphire would be nicest.

What a wonderful donation idea! I would vote for the Swiss Blue Topaz. It is usually a good crowd pleaser. I've attended a few jewelry auctions over the past 5 weekends and I noticed that blue stones were doing really well. Such a "Happy Color."

I think that Moissanite would be a pleaser, and it's still new enough to make a good conversational piece.

That's very generous of you. I would agree that blue stones seem to be very popular right now, and blue topaz or sapphires would be beautiful, I'm sure.

I'm partial to a nice deep amethyst myself, but I know most people prefer blue over purple

I think that the sapphires would be nice.

Are you going to post a picture when you decide which stones you are going to use?

I have to admit that I am interested in seeing the setting since I am looking for a nice two toned pair of earrings.

Wow, good for you =)

I pick blue topaz =)

The contest I hosted recently on DT shows me how much many people love blue topaz

I think a two tone setting would look nice with something coloured more than white sapphire/moissanite............

Post a picture when you are done!

Lovely idea. I like all the colored stones, but I'd vote to stay away from the white sapphire or the moissanite. To most people, the white sapphire's not going to be all that impressive and may just look too much like CZs, and the moissanite's going to suffer from the stigma of being a fake diamond.
