You can check out a weight vs. finger size chart here, which is pretty interesting (but just a guideline). I have long, skinny fingers with a 4.25 ring finger size, and 1.4 carats looks nice on me, though I’m sure I could go bigger or smaller without any problem.

E-rings are so personal its hard to say whats a ‘good’ size.  I’m a size 4.5 with a 1.3 center.  That was my ‘dream’ size, with cost constraints.  If I had gone the moissanite route where cost wasnt an issue, I could have happily went as far as 1.6.  Personally, I think any larger than that would’ve been too big for my finger.  G’luck!

I wear a size 7.5 (and my fingers are pretty long), and I went with the 1.5 carat in a very classic Tiffany inspired setting.  I also have a moissanite!  I love it.  We chose it over a diamond for ethical and financial reasons, and I’m very happy with our choice.  Plus, it’s more sparkly than and diamond and the precision in the stone and in the cut is amazing.  I don’t notice any yellow coloration eithier. 

At a size 5, I think a 1 carat would be a good choice to still be believable/not too gaudy but still wow people.  If you want a little bit more “wow”, I think you could do a 1.25 or even 1.5 carat as well though.

@pui.puni: We ordered it from moissaniteco.com.  Their customer service is really good and it took a little over a week for them to make the ring and ship it.

@mara86: What a beautiful ring!

With cost not being any object, I would say anything up to 1.5 carats would look great. Anything over that may very well look too gaudy. If I were you, I would probably go with 1-1.25 carats because my taste is not too flashy, and I have smaller fingers like you.
