I don’t have one but I thought I’d share an awesome website with you that another bee shared with me – you can pick a diamond cut, then size, then there’s a window with a finger where you can choose your ring size and finger length, as well as the metal colour and band width!  It’ll give you a nice idea of how a size will look on the finger.  It’s not as clear as a hand shot where you can see how it looks in reference to a whole hand, but I found it very helpful nonetheless!

@MissCoffeeBean:  I had a 1.4 cushion FB moissy but it had a doulbe halo, so pics are no help to you here. Maybe you could cut out small square pieces of paper 6.5×6.5mm and 7x7mm and hold it over your finger? If you are not flashy I would go with the smaller one, it was plenty of bling for me!

@MissCoffeeBean:  I have a 2ct cushion cut diamond solitaire on a size 8 finger. I don’t have a moissanite, but if you are looking for finger coverage, it would be the same as someone with a 1.5ct on size 6 finger. Let me know if you’d like to see.

I have a 1.65 ct cushion (diamond, so I won’t post a pic) but the finger coverage is about the same as a 1.3ct round brilliant (finger size 5.75)

I have a 1.1ct cushion cut and my ring size is a 6.

 

Hope that helps!

@MissCoffeeBean:  Aw thanks! Cushions are def a “deeper” looking cut- I think what you lose in MM size you get back in depth and cut- my ring looks and feels chunky and heavy, which I love (it’s NOT a dainty setting either!) I wanted something that stood out and I looooove cushion cuts, so I wasn’t upset losing the finger coverage

@MissCoffeeBean:  SO got me WED509, which is ENG161 without the wedding band. I have to say that I lost one of my diamonds from my side stone within 12 hours of receiving it though. 🙁 It’s seriously so beautiful and I love it! I hope MCo fixes it right away so I can have it back 🙂

Let me know if you have any questions. I’ll be more than happy to help!

@MissCoffeeBean:  I can weigh in on the “dealing with issues” part. I lost 2 pave stones from my MoCo band – the first after 19 days of wear and the second after about another 2 weeks out from the first repair (and they said they double checked all the other stones). 

As far as dealing with things went, I wish they had a phone number! There were nights when I wanted to pull my hair out because I just wanted to hear something…anything. All you can do is send e-mails and hope someone responds. One weekend it was a Friday night and they just told me it was possible that I would never get my ring back. I asked if I could get a refund and literally begged them to give me a response so I could enjoy my weekend. Nothing. That drove me insane. At the end of the day my ring couldn’t be fixed and they tried recasting it from palladium to white gold.. and it still wouldn’t hold stones because the prongs are too short in the design. Why it is still up for sale on their website when they told me they would discontinue it is beyond me. I’m happy I got a refund and could move on!

@MissCoffeeBean:  Yeah :/ for pave bands I would recommend either getting diamonds instead of moissy so you can have it repaired locally if something happens and/or purchase a lose stone and have a trusted local jeweler set it.

Yes, I just received it about an hour ago and I’m getting ready to upload some pics! It is similar to the setting (double halo) but much different in other regards and IMO worlds and worlds prettier/sturdier/more “me.” I love it!
