Hi @Whitelight: First and foremost, as this is your DEBUT post on WBee… a BIG Welcome to “the Hive”
I DID NOT VOTE
As I am a strong believe that it is ALWAYS best to try on rings (more so if you have a particular one in mind)… cause what you see in a picture isn’t going to quite the same IRL
And just like buying clothes on line or out of a catalogue… what you see, and what you see in person can be 2 very different things… not every article of clothing (or style of ring) is going to fit / suit every woman. Everyone’s hands are different etc.
So ya, you really have to GO LOOK & SEE FOR YOURSELF
That said, I guess you are asking also about band size etc.
Measure the distance from the base of your Ring Finger to the first knuckle (bent)… that will give you a general idea of how much room you truly have that accommodate a ring(s)
I have very short stubby fingers (almost childlike) and I only have 3/4 of a inch (19 mm) of space.
BUT I still manage to rock a lot of Jewellery in that short span.
My ERing faces up at 10 mm, and down at 4 mm… My Sparkly WBand is an Eternity Band at about 2-1/2 mm (and my Plain WBand is also 2-1/2 mm)
On average I wear my 2 Sparklies together (10 mm + 2-1/2 mm = 12.5 mm for the Topside) -OR- (4 mm + 2-1/2 mm = 6.5 mm for the Bottomside)
The rare occasions when I wear all three, then you have to add on another 2-1/2 mm all around… so (12.5 + 2.5 = 15 mm for the Topside) -AND- (6.5 + 2.5 = 9 mm for the Bottomside)
And now for some Ring porn…

BTW… My Feature Stone is 0.80 Carats, and I wear a Size 7 Ring
Hope this helps,
