Didn’t I already recommend the diamdb.com site to you? With moissanite it doesnt matter what the carat weight is. Really, with any diamond. There are “general” mm sizes, but every stone is cut slightly different and there can still be variations within each ct weight bracket. With ovals you also have to consider the shape. 11×9 is a pretty fat oval. It will look completely different than a 12×8, which is similar in overall size. 

11×9 on a size 4 sounds massive.

I think they’re both huge personally but then again, I’m not a blingy person

fcm16 :  10x8mm is going to be huge on a size 4! I’m a size 8 and my 10×8 oval morganite is pretty big on my finger.

If you’re just trying to figure out how big it will look on your hand, don’t worry about how many carats it is. Moissanite weighs less than diamond and moissy weight varies from one manufacturer to another.

Can you have it cut to be 11×8? Then you get the length you were looking for but it’s not so chubby. 

I had my radiant custom cut from the typical 9×7 to be 9×7.5, so whoever you’re going with should be able to do an 11×8 oval. 

Here’s mine, in case it helps, ring in size 4.75
