    I don’t have one, but I do believe that there is such as thing as too big. many bees won’t agree with me! but I’m a very casual person so bigger stones don’t look right on me. 

    however, you said you really liked the 8×6 and honestly, a stone that size does not scream “fake” at all, IMO. maybe if it was over 10mm, then I’d start to wonder 🙂

    If you don’t care if people know it’s a moissanite, get the size you really want! Who cares if the size is “believable” as a diamond? A radiant moissanite will not look like a diamond at any size – I say rock it for what it is and don’t worry about it!

    I say go for the bigger stone! A moissy that large will probably not look much like a diamond but it’s not supposed to so embrace it for what it is. It’s your ring and you need to be happy with it. Go big or go home. 🙂

    @MrsTorres:  On 4.75 size finger I would go with the smaller one!

    @MrsTorres:  I always think it’s hilarious when guys have such strong opinions on diamonds!  May I ask what your fiance’s objection to the radiant is?  {My SO irrationally hates princess cut-secretly, I think it’s just the name!}

    @MrsTorres:  If you want it to look “realistic”, which I took to mean like a *normal* ring and not like costume jewelry (as opposed to “realistic” meaning looking like a diamond) than I would pick the size you’d choose if it were a diamond.

    If you were choosing a diamond and cost didn’t matter what size would you get? That’s how I’d choose what seemed “realistic” to me. Ex. I couldn’t realistically wear a 5 carat diamond because it’s too gaudy for my taste and I’d feel like I was wearing costume jewelry…get the size that would feel realistic to you no matter what the stone.

    Found this thread searching for radiants… It’s an old thread so I’m assuming you have your ring by now! 😉

    could you post pics and let us know what you chose?
