I’m a 7. Which is nice because just about all the rings I tried on where a 6.5 or a 7. I could try everything on the first go.
But I also have very looooong fingers (to go along with looooong limbs in general. I wear a 38 inch inseam, I’m 6’1 and a size 11.5 shoe! Everything is long on me.) If my fingers were slimmer I think they’d look creepy. Long skinny spindly fingers… like a skeleton. 😛 (Thin fingers look fine on other people because they aren’t super long.)
Also the fingers on my left hand are thinner (and straighter) than my right. I play a lot of sports and I broke all of the fingers on my right hand at least once (two have been broken more than once.)

I’ve got pretty long fingers, reaching an octave and a half on a piano, and they’re a size 8. My fella has shorter and thinner fingers than I do, despite us having the same size palms, but he says his hands are dainty. Personally, I prefer about a 30% coverage on a finger, so I’m thrilled with my 1ct stone. I don’t think it looks small at all, though my mom says she wished I’d have been able to have something bigger because she’s got a 1ct. I just think a smaller stone and daintier setting help balance out bigger hands.

Lady, I know your pain! 6′ tall here with a 36″ inseam and a size 11 shoe! Knuck, yo.

Size 8.5 here and finger coverage was a HUGE concern for me when ring shopping (oh, first world problems. lol).
We ended up choosing an oval that was cut on the shallow side. It’s 1.48 ct but 7.3×9.7mm (so face-up equivalent of a 2ct). I was surprised that a thin band (2mm) actually looked good on my chubby finger.
And it’s yellow. *Swoon*

I’m the opposite and still not thrilled, lol! Guess we’re never happy with what we have. My finger is 4.5, so kinda small. I can’t really have any interesting design on the side or too much bling because there’s no room. Lol! I guess the only “good” thing would be I could buy a small stone and it might look bigger. Ah well…
