Choosing the right size of moissanite is an important decision. With so many sizes of moissanite to pick from, it may be difficult to choose the right choice for your requirements. But, if you take into account some key elements you will be able to make an informed choice about the best size of moissanite to select.
It is important to be aware that the size of your stone or the carat weight you’ve selected doesn’t determine how much you cherish your partner or how much you are beloved by them. Although it may be challenging to envision, we believe that bigger isn’t always better. Choosing the stone that best complements your personality depends on your style, the size of your hand, and your preference for setting and budget.
Tip 1: Standard & Average Sizes
Based on where you live, the average engagement ring size is likely to vary. A 1.0-carat center stone was once the most popular size for engagement rings. However lately, we’re seeing this trend shifting towards an even larger stone with couples opting for stones that range from 1.25 up to 1.50 carats.
Tip 2: Think About The Wearer’s Style
Does your spouse have an active life or profession? Someone who is hands-on (like an educator or stay-at-home mom) or has a passion for active activities (like gardening or working out) could be more suited for a small center stone.
The size of the moissanite must match the fashion of the individual who will wear it. Someone who has a more subtle style may opt for smaller-sized moissanite, whereas someone who is bold may want a larger moissanite.
Tip 3: Think About Your Budget
One of the important things you should think about when buying engagement rings is the budget.
Does your partner like diamonds? Many environmentally conscious consumers may like the look of diamonds, but not the price or environmental or ethical abuses associated with them. Moissanite gemstones are the ideal solution.
One of the nice benefits of the cost-effectiveness of our moissanite stones is the fact that it means you probably won’t have to compromise the size you prefer due to financial constraints.
Tip 4: Understand The ‘illusion Of Size’ Created By Different Moissanite Shapes
After you’ve set the budget, it’s time to move on to the exciting part: selecting your moissanite’s shape. Every moissanite displays its carat weight in a different way and the shape is a crucial aspect to take into consideration.
For instance, a 0.50CT round moissanite could appear larger than one that is a 0.50CT princess cut stone. While they weigh the same, the mass is distributed in a different way, and this could confuse the eye.
Tip 5: Try Different Sizes
Before you make a decision, it’s a good idea to test different sizes of moissanites to determine which one you like the most. The test will provide you with a clear understanding of what sizes you prefer and which one is the most appealing.
Below is a simple visual guide to round-cut moissanites in different sizes. Here is a look at what a small 0.25CT moissanite solitaire ring looks like on a hand and then look at the rings with progressively larger moissanite.
Tip 6: Consider The Shape Of Your Hand
Additionally, take into consideration your hand’s shape when selecting the ring for your engagement. If your hands aren’t larger than a 6.5 ring size, you may think about the size of 1.0 carat stone or one that weighs less than 1.50 carats. If your hands are bigger than a 6.5 ring size, you could choose a larger ring such as 1.50-2.0 carat.
Remember that the smaller your finger, the bigger the moissanite will appear.
How To Boost The Size Of Your Engagement Ring?
If you receive your ring, and you aren’t a fan of the size of the moissanite do not panic. There are options to enhance it. It is possible to make the ring appear larger by selecting the appropriate setting. Jewelers can even change the setting of your ring to include additional stones or change the central stone for something bigger.
In the end, the most effective way to increase the size of the ring you are considering for engagement will depend on your own personal preferences and your budget. You should consult with a jeweler to look at your options and determine the best option for you.
