    Order a cheap 7mm and 7.5mm from Berricle or Amazon to test out both. That’s what I did when deciding. So glad because it turned out round looks awful on me lol. I ended up getting a 8x7mm antique cushion cut. But I will say in the round sizes I liked the 7.5mm best. It was big enough I felt like I wouldn’t have regrets but not as overwhelmingly large as the 8mm looked on my size 8 fingers. 


    And here I am 3yrs later looking for a 2ct lab diamond to go slightly bigger lol. Shrinkage is a real phenomenon.

    I don’t think 7.5mm would be too showy or too big for your finger at all. It might just be perfect really! Mine is not a moissanite but it is a 7mm sapphire and my finger size is US 5 3/4. 😊 (I’m really bad at taking ring pictures so I’m sorry about the awkward hand pose).

    I think you’ll enjoy the 7.5mm it’s a nice size!

    7.5 is a great size for a size 7. That is a 7.5 on a 7

    I think you should go with your gut and get the 7.5. I don’t think people usually regret going a little bigger, a long as you aren’t going huge that is (I think big is like 3-4ct size). I personally think that 1.5-2 ct size is perfect, but that’s just my preference! The examples posted all look really nice to me.

    @victoriab127:  Why the stone looks super big on some fingers and some not is because of the finger size. 7.5mm on a size 4 finger would look huge but a 7.5 on a size 7 finger might just be perfect in proportion!

    I have a 8.5mm (2.5ct) and I’m a size 7 (rings are sized to 7.25). I was originally considering a 7.5 or 8 and tbh I wish I would have gone with the 7.5. I feel a little self conscious about it and I think 7.5 would have been perfect. I haven’t felt the ring shrinkage yet. What got me to this size was that I looked at diamonds in store to figure out the size moissanite I wanted and I quickly got wrapped in to looking at something a little bigger.. and a little bigger.. and again a little bigger. And here we are haha. I think a big factor was I thought the stone would sit lower in the setting which wouldn’t have made it pop out so much. so that’s definitely something to consider when choosing stone size. Hope this helps!
