    wait…are you getting a morganite because you want a bigger stone but less sparkle or are you getting a morganite because you hate the sparkle on moissanite. I’m not sure why you just wouldn’t get a bigger moissanite. If morganite looks like glass, it’s going to look like glass at any size.

    ooh, I had to google it. I love the pink color! I don’t know to be honest with you. I don’t know anything about the stone to give advice. It’s really pretty though.

    I vote happy medium – because I am super indecisive. 🙂

    I have a rather large white sapphire.  Sapphires are also pretty glassy without much fire to them.  I would say go for the smaller size.  The larger the stone, the dirtier it looks.  I hate that I can see so much dirt at the back of my stone, especially after it’s just been cleaned and I can see the dirt under the prongs.  I often wish it was a little smaller so it wouldn’t be so obvious.

    I think 7mm-8mm + a halo would be a good size. You could always find one of those diamond size charts (I think there’s one on Tiffany’s website), print it out, find the 7mm (1.25ct) and an 8mm (2ish ct) sizes, cut them out and put it on your finger so you can get some idea how much finger the stone will cover. The halo will take some imagination unless you know how big it’ll be.

    Its very pretty..however Im not sure it would be good as an engagement ring (if thats what youre planning on using it for) for the following reasons:

    “It tends to develop internal cracks due to sharp blows or hard knocks. Similarly, it has to be protected from excessive heat, large temperature changes and extreme sunlight else the mild colour of the stone would fade with the passage of time”

    Also I hear excessive cleaning can damage the stone. 

    I wash my hands 10+ times a day so I wouldnt be able to have it as a ring.
