How long’s a piece of string?

popular sizes range from between 1ct to 1.5ct, but it really depends on what size fingers you have, what you deem to be large enough and the shape stone you like. 

if you search the boards for moissanite you’ll find a ton of threads regarding finger sizes and carat weights 🙂


Do you have a preference on stone shape and ring style?

Depends on your finger size I’d say. I am a size 8 and got a 2ct moissy. Though it may be a bit larger once set, I think it’s a fab size! I think a lot of women go with 1-1 1/2 ct. a little more. I just have big ol’ man hands!

Any size you want.  The great thing about moissy is that a 3 or even 4 ct is not that much more than a 1ct.

Chaedra:   I’m a 4.5-5 finger size, and this is a 1ct (6.5mm) Moissanite. I felt if I went any bigger it’d be too big. I feel its perfect for my size- so I’d base carat size off your finger size.

Definitely base it off your ring size.. I am a size 7.5 finger and here is the 1.5ct we got. I love the size.

Chaedra:  Is it for a ring? I’d go try on a ring in different carat sizes (most likely it’ll be a diamond or CZ) and see what looks good on your finger. I’m a 4.5 ring finger and I’m getting a 1.5 carat (7.5mm) moissy.

I chose a 5.5mm (.85 carat equivalent) moissanite and I couldn’t be happier with it! I’ve tried on 1 carat engagement rings and they were just too big for my taste. I think it looks perfect on my hand. Size 5.5 for reference.
