Hm, in what way are smaller moissanites not supposed to be as good?  I’ve not heard this before, but I hadn’t really looked for anything about smaller moissanites, because it hadn’t occured to me that it would be any different.  I just got my wedding band in the mail about a week ago, and it has… I think they are 1.5mm moissanites?  I’m not home at the moment to share a picture, but from what I can see, at least, the stones look great and sparkle nicely.

I’ve heard smaller moissanites can sometimes crack so I would go with the diamonds!

i would stick with all moissys. that way, theres not a noticeable difference in shine. plus ive also heard that with smaller moissys you dont have to worry about doing the fancier colour upgrades because they show body color the bigger they get.

but if you want diamonds theres nothing wrong with that! hooray for all sparkly rocks!

Any pave work (moissy or diamond) is eventually going to crack/chip/lose a stone, and while moissy is overall tougher than diamond, it is cut with a VERY thin girdle, and the small stones do tend to chip/crack more according to some jewelers I know. 

I’ve always opted for diamond side stones, because any jeweler will work with those, vs. most who won’t work with moissy, which can make it a pain to get them replaced.
