It looks to me like it covers all of your finger?

It’s all about what YOU want, girl!  Some women may want 100% finger coverage, whereas others might want only 20% coverage.  It is completely personal preference.

I don’t think anyone is going to look at your ring and thing, “WHOA!  That’s huge!”  However, they definitely aren’t going to look at it and think, “Eh… That’s too small.”  I’d say your ring is an average size that is appealing to many people.


I love the yellow gold, too!  🙂

And since you asked, here’s mine.  I am a simple, clasic girl at heart.

Lol it’s so funny what the internet and our unfortunately vain culture makes us wonder about. Your ring is beautiful. Don’t second guess yourself.

oxstardust421xo:  I think you ring is very unique and covers the whole width of your finger. I also have to agree with a previous poster that it is all personal preference. Some people like a lot of coverage where as some people don’t. If you love it, that’s all that matters.

Why would you need others to tell you if your ring covers enough of your finger? Sorry, I dont get it…

They (the rings) look a bit tight but they cover your finger so I’m confused. If you love it (and you say you do) that’s all that matters.

Ahh, finger coverage.  I wish I was like Emma Frost and could turn my whole body into glistening diamonds.  Now that’s coverage!

Ring finger coverage is another way of saying i want my diamond to take up as much of my finger as possible so it looks bigger. it does not necessarily have to do with carat weight, but how much the stone faces up (how big it looks on top vs holding it’s weight in the bottom where no one sees it). Your ring size also comes into play, obvi the bigger ur finger the bigger the stone u need to cover it. It usually applies more to soliatres, so it’s really not something you have to worry about Since you say you have to wear them together all the time (Your stack). Most of the time women who have a smaller center stone or want more coverage get a halo or add side stones to take up more of the finger, which you already did. if it really bothers you you could upgrade to a larger center stone in the future but I don’t think you need to ESP if you say you love it!

I don’t buy into that at all. I’m pretty sure my stone is considered dainty if not small where I am. BUT it’s perfect on my finger. And yours looks just right to me. Who decides what the correct finger coverage is? I roll my eyes at charts like that. Our love shouldn’t be represented by a carat size or mm size. Just my 2 cents.

You love it so who cares! I personally think your rings are gorgeous! I really like the side diamonds.

Why settle for just finger coverage?
