    I have a 2.2 ct hexagon moissanite on an 8.5 finger. I love it!

    I have a 1.25 ct. finger size is 8. I don’t know if I would have gone 2, but I definitely wish I’d gone bigger. I’d go with the 2ct if I were you.

    My solitaire is 2.5 and my band is also 2.5. I wear a size 7-7.5 (7.5 when my fingers swell in the hotter months!). I would definitely go 2 carats ๐Ÿ˜Š

    hissoon :  Your ring looks beautiful.

    I’m sure that a larger stone wouldn’t be anywhere near as flattering or chic.

    Ovals can face up very differently even at the same carat weight, so deep cut 2ct oval can face up very similar in size to a shallow cut 1.5ct oval (thus paying for extra weight you can’t really see).   They really need to be judged by their specific measurements and not ct weights.

    MrBlueSky :  with a simulant it’s better to go smaller if you’re looking for believability. (Especially with moissanite ovals as they appear quite different than a diamond.) Thus I would go smaller than you mentioned.  However no one would be rude enough to ask out loud about someones stone anyway!

    If you don’t care and just want a big, beautiful sparkling eye catching piece of jewlery then go big or go home.  I would go with the larger size!

    I say 2 carats for sure . My ring finger is between 7- 7.5 on my left hand and can be up to an 8 on my right …lucky me lol.

    My pear solitaire ER is 3.05 carats in a size 7.25 and my eternity band is just under 2 (the eternity band is a size 8.)

    Bigger fingers and hands can totally pull of larger diamonds or rings anddddd diamond schrinkiage is real lol…so go for 2 carats.
