Hey bees, so I’ve been looking at rings, and have fallen in love with this setting:
I’d get it set with amora/mira moissy. I’ve got 5.5-6 fingers. I’ve been told I have “dainty” fingers, so I think I can get away with a smaller stone. I’m trying to decide on whether it would be better to get it w/a 6mm or 6.5 mm in this setting. I know there isn’t a huge difference between the two sizes, but I want the stone to be big enough to look proportionate to my hand but not so big it attracts attention. I’m afraid the 6.5 mm might look a little too big, but also know “shrinkage” sets in, and bezels can make stones look smaller. Anyways, please share your thoughts! I told bf 6mm, but if enough ppl think 6.5 would be the way to go, I’ll let him know. 🙂

I vote 6.5mm. That’s what my stone is (but I have a size 9 finger) and it’s perfect!

I vote 6.5mm (: my ring size is 6 and 7mm is perfect for me and 6.5 wouldn’t be much different.

I also vote 6.5mm. Here’s an (unenhanced) 6.5mm on my size 4 finger:
Sorry they’re kinda crappy pics, but hopefully that gives you an idea of size. 6.5 mm is not too big at all IMO. Shrinkage is real!

@abirdword: I think 6.5 mm would be gorgeous! Bezels do make the stone look a bit smaller, and shrinkage is real. Haha
I have a ~7.35mm diamond in a similar setting. Size 6.
@moonadea: gorgeous ring!!
