    emvee :  Rings always look so much bigger in pictures then they do in real life.  I wear an ‘8’ and a 2 carat on my finger looks like how a 1 carat looks on a size 4 finger.  You have to keep that in mind as the average size finger is around a 6.5 and stones may look larger on other people’s pics & images.  I would suggest ordering a $10 CZ off of ebay or go to a store and try some things on.  There are always tables at Macy’s or Kohl’s that have engagement style CZ’s that you can try on to get a better idea of what the size will look like on your finger.  Other considerations are solitaires versus a 3-stone or halo which will add more finger coverage and probably wouldn’t require a larger stone.

    emvee :  Keep in mind that that 2ct stone may have been bottom heavy, and all of the weight of the stone wasn’t in the table. With a measured stone, 8×6 or 7×5 you are really going to get those dimensions across the top of the table.

    Just for a little bit of fun, I thought I’d lay it out for you design wise… and the graphic is crazy tiny. So I thought you might want to see it in print form instead.


    The circle on the outside should be the size of US Dime. You can see them side by side for comparison, and also the one inside the other.

    You could also be as insane as I am and print two copies and put both on your finger to see which will look better!

    emvee :  I haven’t voted, but I have a 7×5 MoCo moissanite. The ring is a size 5 but I wear a 4.5. I know it’s quite a bit smaller than your finger, but maybe it will help.

    Mines a 5 x 7 diamond on a size 6. I think I might go up to a 6 x 8 but wouldn’t do any larger, for sure. In general I’m very pleased with the size. I think the band is 2.5mm?

    Here is a shot of both the 7×5 and 8×6 on my roughly 5.5 size finger.  There is a big difference size wise.  These are both C&C stones.  The 8×6 is a Forever Brilliant, the 7×5 is a Forever One near colorless.  I chose the 8×6, and I will put more pics of it for you alone.  I got my pics mixed up, the pic with both sizes is last.
