Not sure if you specifically want to see moissanites, but I believe that they’re cut so that the top dimension is similar to that of a diamond of the same carat weight, if that makes sense (ie they’d look the same). Here is mine, do notice though that I have a gap in my halo which makes it oddly wide. Hope this helps!

Center stone is around 1.56 carats, finger size is 4.75.

I would definitely go try some on, I thought it was helpful. My fingers are a little smaller (size 4), but I have a 1.25ct moissanite that I love:

@sshumatey:  I went to several stores and asked them if they carried or could get moissanite. One jeweler was pretty pushy about trying to get me to buy a diamond (so I left), but two had a moissanite on hand, in estate rings, and all of the stores I talked to were able to order one. I ended up going with Helzberg, FWIW

Moissonite uses diamond equivalent weight so you can go try on diamonds rings of the same ‘size’ to get an idea.   I’m size 4-4.5 and my center is 1.3ct, bands are 2mm each

I fluctuate between 4.0 and 4.5 depending on the season/time of the month.  Here’s my 1ct Amora enhanced moissanite:

@sshumatey:  Thanks!! Good luck with the hunting!! I know I had a hard time making up my mind! Also, I would check the size conversion of moissanite to diamond, just in case I was completely wrong.

@sshumatey:  Honestly, I was so far under what my fiance thought his budget would be that he was happy to buy any “upgrade” that was available.  The Amoras were also plentiful this summer, so it wasn’t hard to get.  My unenhanced moissanite studs are .5ct and look only a little less white, but they’re also a good deal smaller, so it’s hard to tell what the difference would have been.  I’m really happy with the color (but I didn’t look at any unenhanced stones, so I have no idea how I would have felt about those).
