I’ve written a lot of posts regarding picking out an ering for my gf of almost 4 years. I found the one. it is a moissanite ring, but I am going to put a 2 carat cushion cut morganite in there (8mmX8mm) and make it rose gold. It also has .75 carats of diamonds in there, making the ring 2.75 and 11mm across. For a size 10 finger, is this too much? I don’t want to overpower the finger.
Edit: I’m ordering this from online, so I won’t be able to have her try it on to see if it overpowers her finger.
any other women with a cushion cut halo ring that is similar to 2.75 that can show me pictures?

@otto2008: I think it will look fine. I don’t think 11mm would be too large on a size 10 (my husband wears a size 10 and has a 7mm or 8mm band and it doesn’t look particularly thick). I think there is a chart that shows ring size to finger coverage based on carat online somewhere, although it may be a little off since you’re getting a morganite.

I dont have pictures, but a 2ct ring on a size 10 finger will look great. Even 11mm across is just over 50% coverage which is ideal coverage imo.

@pinkshoes: Maybe I am an idiot, but I have no idea how to read that thing…how can you tell what is ideal? I have a 5.5. finger with a 1 carat stone.

@secretwife: I definitely uploaded a photo but it may have been too large.

@otto2008: Considering the way it looks on the model’s hand, I don’t think it would be overpowering at all. Sounds like your gf is going to be a lucky lady!

The think the size should look nice on her finger and I highly doubt it’ll look overpowering. Good luck! :)) It’s a really pretty setting!

@luckylady3090: I think the orange section is supposed to be ideal coverage. So your 1 carat would be ideal for your 5.5 finger size if you look on the chart!

@otto2008: I think it is perfect! She will love it and it will look awesome on her finger!! I’ve seen size 4 fingers with 2ct stones so I don’t think you have anything to worry about. Take the plunge! She will adore it!

@luckylady3090: Find your ring size across the top and your ct weight/mm and see where they cross. So at 1ct, size 5.5, you have about 40% coverage. There really isn’t an “ideal”… it’s just personal perferance.

@otto2008: I did a little gasp. Gorgeous ring! And with a morganite and rose gold? So drool worthy!

Hi @otto2008: GORGEOUS Ring !!
Based on the Finger Coverage Chart that @pinkshoes: provided and the fact that it is 2 C Cushion on a Size 10 Finger… I think at about 41% coverage it will look great.
May show slightly smaller than the Photo Link you provided to the Model’s Hand Photo (in so much as I would guess that a Ring Model’s Hand would be Size 6 or 7 which is the Average Hand Size). So in this case the ring would have about 47% to 50% coverage.
NOT a significant difference.
And it will be 100% terrific and your Girlfriend (soon to be Fiancée) will LOVE it.
Do come back when all is said & done, and tell us how the Proposal went… as we’ve enjoyed getting to know you thru your Ring Search Journey.
Hope this helps,

AWESOME pick – love what you’ve chosen and cannot wait to see the finished ring and hear the great news! I know she will just love it and the thought you’ve put into it and think it will look stunning on her!!! I have a 10mm round with halo so about 14mm across on a size 5 finger and I don’t think mine overpowers me and don’t think you have anything to worry about 🙂
