I totally wish I had smaller fingers, but… they are what they are. Even when I was a lot thinner, I was still a size 10! My fingers are long, too, so I can never find gloves that fit. 

I wound up going with what I thought was considered a halo, but is actually more like a cluster setting for more finger coverage for less money. (I would have loved a 2 carat, but it was waaay out of our price range. Congrats, you lucky lady!) My mom has a size 10 finger with a 2 carat round diamond, and it doesn’t look gigantic on her finger – it looks (IMHO) just right. 

Here’s mine! ETA: This is a .58 center stone; the smaller diamonds in the halo/cluster bring it up to a TCW of 1.16.

@shortie1848:  I hear you! My fingers are not big, and I *still* wish they were smaller! I think 4 is the perfect size …. something I never considered before the bee! I got finger envy from this website!!! 😉

Size 9.25 here. I do wish for smaller fingers sometimes, but it’s not that big of a deal. I love how my rings look on my finger!

I’m a size 8.5. Every once in a while i wish for a size 8. lol. This is my RHR and not sure of the carat equivalent.

Mine is a size 8, I am thinking I may have to go to an 8.5….it is what it is, nothing wrong with big hands 🙂

Size 9-9.25 here!!!  I just changed the setting for my e-stone because I didn’t like the lack of finger coverage I got from my original set (and DH didn’t either!)  So we chose a new set together that I LOVE… Here is my before and after.  The stone is a 1 carat princess.

@shortie1848:  I feel your pain — I wear a size 10 1/2 ring….and a size 12 WW shoe…so while I am plus-sized, I do also have REALLY big bones! 🙂  I like my fingers because they are long and not too chubby, and I don’t have ring “muffin top.”  Here’s a picture of my 20th anniversary/50th birthday ering and band upgrade — the center stone is .93.

@shortie1848:  Here’s my 2.02 center stone on a size 8 ring.

I do! My ring finger on my right hand is a smidge over an 8, and even though my ring finger is a bit smaller, I occasionally worry that the ring of my dreams will be out of reach. I prefer my jewelry bold (my favorite loose stone in terms of finger coverage is a star ruby of mine that faces up at 7.5×8.8 mm – with its depth, it’s the equivalent of 2.5 carats of diamond), and I will likely get engaged around age 21 or 22.


Oh well. Who knows what will happen before then? 🙂

I also wear a size 8 and wish they were a tad slimmer, but oh well. I do have a 2 ct cushion cut stand-in from Berricle and I think the coverage is more than enough.

@shortie1848:  I have a size 8.5 ring finger, you tell me what you think about my finger coverage.

Same ring, different (natural) lighting..

The only thing I hate about the size of my fingers is that I feel like I have a mini fat roll above/below the ring (not sure how to explain this better)

I frequently wish I had thinner fingers. I wear a 9 and my hands are rather big, so smaller stones just look ridiculous.

@MissMay3003:  Hi!  I love your Ering!  My ring too has stones front, back, & top.  What type of  wedding band are you considering?  I’m wanting eternity bands but I’m just not sure.
