I am designing my own ering, and I really want an oval moissy as my center stone. However, the oval moissys I have found aren’t “oval” enough.
I know I might seem super picky but I’m designing it myself for a reason, to get it perfect. I have searched and searched but the only oval moissanites I come across only differ 2mm between length and width. That’s too round for my taste. I would prefer at least a 3 or 4 mm difference. Every single oval moissy seem to be 8×6, 9×7, 10x8mm.. You get the point. I would ideally like it to be 12×9 or 12×8. I feel like I have looked everywhere 🙁 should I just settle for another type of stone? A diamond that big is way out of my budget but I don’t know any other clear stones. Does anyone have any suggestions? P.s sorry if my english is weird, it’s not my first language. 🙂

I can’t help, but your English is fine 🙂

The sizes you posted are the standard sizes for most oval lab created stones. Unless you can find a custom cut moissanite, those are the sizes you’ll have to choose from.

That just the way oval moissanite is cut so you won’t find any different measurements. The oval amora gem ultra is suppose to be released at the end of this month, but they would probably be too round for you too. You can get more info at betterthandiamond.com.
Another option would be to look at oval white sapphire or white topaz

What you’re really looking at is the length to width ratio. The smaller the length to width ratio is, the “fatter” the oval will appear. A 12×9 has a LW ratio of 1.33, which is the exact same as an 8×6, even though they appear to have different ratios because of the dimensions. If you want a “skinnier” one, you’ll have to go below 8×6, because they only get fatter as you go up with a 2mm difference.
I’ll recommend diamdb.com as well, it’s what I used obsessively to look at diamond and moissanite ratios when I was deciding what I liked.
Here’s a link showing that 8×6 and 12×9 are the same LW ratio (read same “size”)
Same thing with a 6×4 and a 12×8
(ignore the “inadequate” carat size, I was going by dimensions only, not stone weight)
