I adore oval stones. They will deffo make her fingers look slimmer if that is what she’s going for.

I have an oval engagment ring, real diamond, and it actually looks larger than it is. Ovals look like the have more carat weight than I regular diamond.

@Xenon54:  I have a color enhanced (Amora) Old European Cut 3ct moissy. Custom setting.

I love this cut! It’s so amazing & dreamy 🙂 but I will say that if your GF isn’t comfortable with at least a little bit of warmth (slight yellow tint) then it might not be for her. Here is my ring, nonetheless. 🙂 (the first pic my stone is a little dirty in, sorry bout that)

Here is a picture of my OEC moissanite next to an OEC diamond. The diamond is on the left (an H color, so more white) & the moissy is on the left (J color, so a little more tinted).

Also, the OEC will show a little more color than a round brilliant, fyi.  I don’t know anything about ovals showing color or not, but as far as moissanite goes, round brilliant shows the least color.  And even a round forever brilliant can be buttery yellow in certain lights (mostly in indirect sunlight for me).

My SO is getting my moissanite ring custom made but trust me if you go that route it will NOT get done by September. I have been waiting almost 8 months for mine. The jewlwer was fine with working with moissy, he even ordered it for us, but he did seem to think that we should go for a small size. I don’t know if that is just waht he thought would look good on me, if he thought that would show the color less, or what.

 

I like wed 635

I’ve got size 6 fingers and was trying to decide between round and oval. My FI decided we should go oval and I’m so happy we did. The oval looks a lot better on my stubby fingers than a round does. I’d encourage you to go oval if your girlfriends hands look anything like mine.

@Xenon54:  How exciting that you’re getting ready to propose! Congrats! I would suggest you take a look around the betterthandiamond.com forums, there is a ton on moissanite info and pics, as well as info on great vendors who do work with moissy. Good luck picking the perfect ring!
