Which Ring Would Look Best on Your Finger?

17 Apr 2019 5:24:41 pm

Choosing the right engagement ring for your finger is quite similar to selecting the right dress for your body type.
While trying on different styles of engagement rings, you’ll find that not every style looks great on your finger, even if it does in the display case or on Instagram. But not to worry - there’s always a ring style and shape to flatter every finger and every hand.

With this handy guide, you can narrow down options, rather than spending hours trying on the wrong rings in a a display case.

How to Find the Perfect Ring for your Finger Type?

To find an engagement ring that flatters your unique finger type, you need to consider the following:

  • Finger size and shape
  • Ring width and profile (flat band, round band etc)
  • Ring style
  • Diamond shape
  • Diamond size

Here are a few guidelines that will help you find the right ring:

Long fingers - Most styles work perfectly for long and thin fingers, but consider these points before choosing:

  • Radiant cut diamonds and oval cut diamonds grace long fingers.
  • You can get away with a wider band, as you will have more of a bridge between your knuckles. This might also mean larger accent diamonds on the band.

Short fingers - An engagement ring for short fingers should make your short finger appear elongated:

  • Pear or Marquise cut gives an elongated appearance to your finger.
  • Slender and narrow-width bands create an illusion of length.

Big knuckles and small fingers – it’s very common for women to have slender fingers but a large knuckle, so if you are one of these women you are not alone! However, there are some easy and beautiful ways to flatter this type of finger.

  • A top-heavy ring will swing around on a finger with larger knuckles, so we want to redistribute the weight across the finger. A cathedral or under-rail style is a great way to do this while still being able to put a wedding band flat against your engagement ring, or if you’re thinking about a unique fitted band as your wedding band we can bring the setting as low as possible.
  • While choosing your ring, look at the bigger picture— it’s not just about your finger, but also your hand. There are always options!

Small hands

  • You can keep the overall size of your ring small if you have petite hands – fine band and low settings, etc.
  • You can opt for a smaller round, princess-cut, or heart-shaped diamond if you like.

Large hands

  • If you large hands, a moderate band works nicely – a thin band will get lost but a thick band will make your hand look stubby, especially when your wedding band gets added later.

Your unique finger and hand shape is just a small part. There are many other factors that you need to consider before buying an impressive engagement ring. Please come and see our helpful staff at All Diamonds to guide you through the process of choosing the perfect engagement ring.
