I don’t have an e-ring yet, but my ring size is an 8 1/2. I completely understand having man-hands with nice nails Tongue out

I found a store that had CZ solitaires out for you to try on in all different carat sizes so you could see what looked best on you. I went with a friend who has a size 7 finger. A 2 carat looked on me like a 1 carat looked on her. The 1 carat disappeared completely on me. It was an interesting experience.

My hands are somewhere between “Golaith” and “Yao Ming” sized. Honestly, I have bigger hands than anyone I know other than my 6’8″ beast of a father. And they are fractionally smaller than his. I don’t have “fat” hands persay, just insanely long fingers and a huge palm. I also have these giant swollen knuckles from jammed fingers from 10 years of contact sports. But I will say, my 1/2 carat diamond ring still doesn’t look tiny on my hand. I think part of what helps is that it is a solitare with a design that is “v” shaped on both sides so it looks wider. Of course I am one of those people who would beat the heck outta a stone that was any bigger so it was a good thing. I will have to take and post a pic on my hand since all I have is it off on something pretty.

I have very large hands as well. We call them farmer’s hands in my family 🙂 my mom and grandma both have them too. My fingers are still relatively thin for my hands (I wear a 5 3/4), but I’m not into big blingy jewelry so I just went with what fit my personality and didn’t even take into account the size of my hand. I only wear my wedding band on my left and I wear my small ering on my right.

Same sitch here!  “Well-manicured man hands”…that’s perfect!  Hahaha.  I’m a size 9 with verryyyyy long fingers, so my friends’ 1-carats look smaller on me than I’d like. 🙁  SO and I will start ring shopping after the holidays, and my goal is a 1.1 or higher cushion with a halo.  I think the halo should help balance out the sizing perception difference.

I have big hands, but was lucky enough to get a great deal on a diamond from a family member, so it still looks plenty big on me

I wear a size 9.5-10 depending on the weather. I find oval/round cut nails ( almost alway fake ones) give my hands some lenth.

I wear an 8.25, and I think my big hands look better with a dainty ring. Thick bands look weird on me. My center stone is .94 and my side stones are .15 each, for a 1.24 tcw. the band is another .7tcw. And for comparison’s sake, Mr. LK is a 10.5. And yes, we were totally testing out our wedding bands a few days ago. i cannot wait to wear them all the time!!!!!!!!!! So close!

I have large hands (thanks, Dad!) with tapered fingers that are fuller at the bottom than at the top (thanks, Mom!).  I have a 2.71 carat sapphire centerstone, which I believe is about 50% finger coverage.  I do have a small halo around the ring, so it may be a wee bit more than that.  Here’s the chart if you havent seen it:  http://www.pricescope.com/forum/rockytalky/carat-weight-vs-finger-size-finger-coverage-percentage-t131327.html

I wear a size 8. My center stone is about .45 and with the halo and pave band I think it brings it to about .75 ctw
