Hi everyone, I have been a member forever but haven't posted in a LONG time.
I just ordered a new ring for travel, a 2.5ct Asscher Moissanite.
Then I remembered that Asscher diamonds face up smaller...... is this the case with Moissanite?
I have a 2ct round diamond and I am worried I will think the 2.5ct Moissy will look small.

Can anyone help me out? Should I get a 3ct?

I would just go try them on but we are currently locked down due to Covid and will need to change the order ASAP if I decide to change the stone size.

My ring size right now is just under an 8. Am losing weight, so will end up being a 7 when all is said and done.

Thanks!

I am not too familiar with moissanite but best to check the measurements. A 2.5ct asscher will face up about 7.5 x 7.5mm. A 2ct round is 8mm.

Maybe you could draw it up on a piece of paper and stick it on sticky tape on your finger and see what the face up is like? I loved asschers but yes they do face up small. LOL if I could have my way.. I would probably want a 5ct lol.

Thats exactly what I was thinking! I did some googling and on a size 6 finger a 4CT looks amazing! I don't want to go too big though. I have decided a 3ct is probably the right size for me. I like the idea of the drawing and putting it on my finger. I am going to try that! Thank you all!

I would definitely say 3 carat or around 8mm. I just bought a lab diamond Asscher and a precision moissanite Asscher. The lab diamond is 2.69 carats and is 8mm and the moissanite is 8mm and called 3 carats. My finger size is the same too. This is what the moissanite looks like.

Thank you so much for that! The jeweller got back to me and told me the 3ct is 8.5x8.5 and now I am worried it is going to be too big! Its all said and done, so I can't change it now lol

I don’t think you’ll be able to notice a difference between 8.5x8.5 and 8x8mm. Plus once you get used to it, it’ll be even less noticeable. Please show us when you get it.

I agree with other’s that it won’t be that noticeable. if it is in a solitaire, it is visually a very small difference. I also don’t think that size will look crazy big on your finger either. It sounds perfect to me!
