    I would have happily had a smaller moissy, in fact half a carat sounds lovely, but Fiance liked the idea of a 1 carat equivalent, so that’s what I have. I think because the price difference doesn’t come into play the same way, there’s less likely to be a discussion about stone size, maybe? And it kind of seems like a lot of guys feel like a carat is a kind of “should” stone size, which I think is arbitrary and kind of silly, but hey. To each their own.

    I have a .75 carat moissy! I didn’t want anything bigger than that for myself personally on my size 5.25 finger…although, the .75 moissy that I have has the same width as a 1 carat diamond at several jewelers that I’ve been to. I love the moissy I have and am def glad I didn’t get a bigger one…in fact, the (large, to me!) size of the one I have took some getting used to!

    My moissy is .85ct plus a halo (unknown weight). I insisted on having a non-diamond stone and <1ct stone (I’m not big on bling) so I think it’s perfect for me!

    One of the final contendors for my ring was a 1/2 ct moissy in marquise cut.  However once we realized that those tend to show a lot of color, we went with a larger round cut.  I just LOVE the smaller marquise cuts, so dainty and elegant!  I would have loved a .75 ct round, but Fiance wanted to get me a 1ct, which I also love.

    @patchy:  We got mine from moissaniteco 🙂 It’s 6mm across, which was the same as several 1 carat diamond measurements at several stores! It was generally closer to 1 carat than .75 carat round diamonds. Where did you get yours from?

    Me! Mine is 5.5mm or 0.66ct equivalent. I love it!

    Me! It’s a 0.75 but I wish I’d gone smaller, I feel it’s a bit big. And patchy, I love love LOVE yours. It is stunning.
