Size 8.5, 1.43ct. The e ring band is I think 2mm and my wedding band is slightly larger.

For some reason I can’t edit my response but I wanted to add that my rings are loose (can’t tell in this pic), the ering slides around quite a bit but I still have a muffin top just because my fingers are so chubby.

Oh man I feel your pain. I’m a size 11 and I was absolutely convinced I would never find a ring that looked good on my huge finger. I never wear rings in my everyday life because they just don’t look good and I can never find any that fit anyway. 

My fiancé and I went to two jewelers to look at different styles and I thought I wanted a halo for more coverage. It didn’t help that all sample rings come in size 6-7 so LOL I couldn’t even try to get it past my knuckle. 

We ended up picking out this solitaire with side stones from brilliant earth. The side stones add a little more coverage but in a dainty way? I absolutely love it, and I feel so confident wearing it. I never thought i’d love a ring on my fat finger so much! Lol.

It’s a moissanite equivalent to 1.25 carats. Not sure the size of the band but it’s pretty thin.

sevencitiesago :  Wooh, size 11 girls unite! Haha

My e-ring is a 1ct equivalent Moissanite solitaire. But what helps for me in terms of finger coverage is the setting. I knew I wanted a floral/rose inspired ring, and we found this amazing setting!

With the setting AND stone, it’s 10mm across (I think that’s the size of 3.5-ish carats?) from “petal” to “petal”, so it helps add some coverage without needing a giant stone (not the best pic of my ring but it’s the most recent one on my phone and I am a picture addict with thousands of pics so… LOL this was easier than scrolling back!)

I always found these threads helpful when I was searching and now I get to help!

I was concerned about finger coverage as well & I have a size 9 finger (or so I thought, it might be ~8.5 because my ring is alittle loose) and I went with a three stone style. 9×7.5mm  (~3 carat equivalent) OMC moissanite with 6×4 side ovals, so the finger coverage is ~15.5mm and it’s perfect. It doesn’t look at HUGE in real life but perfectly proportion with my large hands.

Size 8.5 finger with a 1.3 diamond and 2mm pave band.  I really struggled with the setting too as my fingers are also very short.  I found the 2mm looked better because it didnt take up as much room and already limited real estate.  There’s no escaping the muffin top for me.  My rings are not at all tight.  It’s just my hands.

Me! My fingers are totally short and stumpy, with short little fingernails that refuse to grow out lol.  I’d always wanted a solitaire diamond ring on a thin band, but quickly learned that my ring finger looked best with a bit more coverage. The best compromise for me was to add a dainty halo and a thicker wedding band to get that finger coverage while still overall having the ring style I’d always dreamed of.  

My ring is 1.07 ct oval diamond (approx 8×6 mm) with a petite pave halo on a 1.9mm band.  My wedding ring is 4mm wide.

Size 9 right here! 1.5 oval and I believe it’s a 1.7 or 1.8 mm band.
