Based on your comments, I would go with the 6mm. With the halo I doubt you’ll feel like you should’ve gone bigger.

I was debating this myself and went with a 6mm (no halo)… so with a halo too, I would definitely say go 6mm

Here is my 6mm Moissanite ring. For Reference the ering band is 2mm and the wedding band is 2.2mm

I agree with PPs and vote 6mm too because of the halo.

I think a 0.5mm difference isn’t that significant. So either would look great!

mdom7 :  6mm with a halo should be substantial enough. Have you looked into lab diamonds? They are becoming much more affordable and don’t have the optical and staining issues of moissanite.

mdom7 :  Moissanite is double refractive, so some people can discern quite easily that it is not a diamond. Also, there have been bees that have reported complaints of staining on their moissanite (search the board). Looking at Lightbox’s website, their .75 carats are about 500 more than the cost of a 6.5mm on Harro Gem’s website.

Wait, does she know you are getting her a stimulant and not a real diamond? As in, are you trying to fool her as well and that’s why you want it to look more believable? I would strongly recommend discussing her preferences with her for stone realness as well as size.

mdom7 :  Whatever size is on the finger in the pic looks perfect! Such a beautiful ring too.

 

My finger size is the same,  and I have a 0.5 carat solitaire with no halo so I think the size you are looking at is a great believable middle ground. It doesn’t look gaudy and at the same time it definitely does not look small.

mdom7 :  ok awesome! I think the 6 mm will be really pretty and not overwhelming with that sparkly halo.
