I picked out my own ring and wanted something large. I have always loved large stones and their larger facets and bigger sparkle. I live in a city where it’s not unusual to wear large carat rings. I am very busy and active but always keep my ring on. I wear a silicone sleeve to protect it at crossfit, with sports gloves. I find that my simple bezel setting and beaded wedding band keep the 3ct 9mm OEC moissanite classy looking. I also wear a 2ct 8mm amora moissanite on my right index finger 🙂

I’m in Australia too- I have a 2.3 on a 7.5 hand so it’s pretty proportional according to that coverage scale that floats around.
I live in the eastern suburbs of sydney and my ring is the same or smaller than others on my street but bigger at work etc. Do get a lot of comments about its size which I am a bit awkward about and usually just say we had to go a little bigger because my hands are large.
I haven’t experienced the ‘ring shrinkage’ phenomenon- I think the comment above about being comfortable with your ring is spot on.

I have a 4 carat sapphire center stone. I love it. I do have a 7.5 finger though so I’m not sure how something this large would look on a smaller finger

novicehame: That ring is really beautiful it reminds me of princess Diana. It’s great size for your finger, yeah on me it would be far too big. I’ve looked at either 2ct or 3ct which in Moissanite is 9×7 or 10×8. The 9×7 is probably the biggest i should go. I love the thought of something bigger but i am concerned of practicallity. Thanks for the beautiful pic.

Two of my rings are the 2.5ct range, one is 3.2ct. It’s an antique cushion, so I think it faces up smaller. I could have gone for more carat weight, but there’s a certain size I’m comfortable with, and for various reasons I don’t want to go any bigger. I get enough comments as is.

princessforever77: you said you want to try to pass it off as a diamond. I can id moissy (I have one) and so can my friends. Especially being sooo big, others will know even if they go along with the pretense. It’s a beautiful stone, you may want to own what it is or buy a used real diamond ring. No worries then.

I also think if your going to try and pass it off as a diamond..go smaller. The larger stimulants are easy to spot. Ovals are alot less expensive than round brilliant diamonds..maybe look at a couple in the near colorless group like a g, h, or even I..a 1.50 oval is still going to give you great finger coverage..and it’s real, so you can upgrade it to a bigger diamond down the road.

My ring is 2.5 cts on a size 7.5 finger. Ring shrinkage is definitely real. I wish I had gone with 3 cts:
