    I highly, HIGHLY doubt those pictures are real moissanite. It’s probably CZ in the picture. Moissanites at that size (and those shapes) are nowhere near that white.

    Do a google image search for moissanite oval and moissanite pear to get a more realistic view, so you aren’t disappointed!

    Edit: Here’s another bee’s picture of an oval:

    I like the oval beter, but I’d be worried about coloring with a stone that big!

    i have  diamond oval halo ring and I wear the same size as you (4.5) bigger stones actually look gaudy on our size finger. My center stone is about .88 with all the diamonds totaling about 1.52. I tried on a 1.5 center stone and Chose to go with a better quality smaller stone.

    You really don’t need a 3 ct  center stone.

    @Sunnyinct:  Agreed.  I have a size 4.5 finger as well and my 1ct center diamond seems pretty large to me.  I have very thin, short fingers and anything bigger than a carat (with a halo) looked gaudy to me.

    That said, I like the oval for its shape and voted for that in your poll, although I’d go with 1.5 (with a halo) max, IMO.   

    Pic of my ring for reference.  1ct center with a half carat in the setting:

    @GoldfishPie:  “I highly, HIGHLY doubt those pictures are real moissanite. It’s probably CZ in the picture. Moissanites at that size (and those shapes) are nowhere near that white.”

    Yes, I totally agree. Plus of course people (especially someone trying to sell somthing!) post the best pictures, not going to see green/yellow ones. …
    OP, I agree with the other bees, go smaller. A moissanite jewel that huge will definitely be too much as well as rather obvious that it’s a diamond simulant (maybe that doesn’t matter to you, don’t know)
    Just my 2c.

    I love the oval! Definitely voted for it.

    I’m looking at ovals for my forever ring as well! Post some pics once you get it? 🙂
