    haha i did the same with mine!! I would say 6 if your jobs dont pay a lot or have a lot of people to judge. the smaller the stone the easier it is to pull off being a diamond and people not questioning. i am getting a 5.5 or 6 depending on what my SO chooses. Mine will be with a halo setting so we went a little smaller

    I think either option will look beautiful. However, I probably would choose the 6.5mm/1.4-c equivalent.

    @MarshmallowLatte:  The 6mm will be easier to pull off without people wondering so much but I think either looks great! I think you should go bigger!

    I say go bigger. You’re going to (in theory) have it forever. Situations will change. The bigger size will suit your finger better.

    Bigger isn’t always better in my opinion. My ring is 1/2 carat diamond but it was my fiance’s great-grandmother’s diamond and I would rather have that beautiful heirloom on my finger than some giant rock 🙂

    Depends on the setting. 6 if halo? 6.5 if solitaire?

    I just love that you cut out those pics!!! I think that if you are going to pass it off as real then you should go smaller. If you are going to be honest about it being a moissy then go big or go home. U better post pics lol

    6.5.  Shrinkage happens, you’ll get older and it’ll ‘look more right’.  No one is really going to think about what a cushion equivalant is anyways vs what the round size would be.

    I say buy whatever you want and if people ask, tell them “it’s nunya”…hahaha..jk…I think either is good. Tell people whatever you want. It’s your ring and if you’re happy, that’s all that matters.

    I have a 6mm round moissanite (.75 ct. equivilent) and the same size finger as you. Thought it might help you to see what the size looks like on me. 

    If you’re really having trouble deciding though you could go try on diamond rings just to get an idea of what size looks best!
