This is my ring for reference 1ct moissanite on a size 5.5. Hopefully this helps give you an idea of what a size you would like more. Personally I love the size of my stone and how much finger coverage it gives but a 1.5 would be nice as well.

Victoriagrace06:  ring shrinkage happens, so I say go with the 1.5! I don’t have a moissanite, but I have a 1.7 carat on a 5.75 finger — and I don’t find it overwhelming or gaudy.

I have a 1 carat forever one moissanite centre stone on a size 5 finger. My ring is also from moissaniteco.

The halo is going to add a lot to the size, so I’d go with the 1 carat center stone.  Hopefully someone with a halo 1 carat ring can post a picture

Victoriagrace06:  I have a size 5 finger and have a 1ct RB in my engagement ring, but I also have a loose 1.5ct OEC. With them side by side I really can’t see too much of a difference(could be my setting though)-I’ll add a pic. But, if you’re adding a halo it may make it look much bigger so it really depends on how much finger coverage you want. Hopefully this helps

That’s gorgeous! I’m glad you went 1.5! Shrinkage is real!

Here is a 1 carat moissy (on the very bottom) and at the very top is a 1.5ct moissy (center ring is 1.20ct diamond). Finger size is 4.25, but I wear the bigger moissy on my right hand which is a size 5.25. I don’t think it looks too big or gaudy, I love a bigger stone. Yours will look awesome!
