@sunkissed19:  Excellent! That’s what I asked for for my upgrade. Good to know it should look so perfect. ๐Ÿ™‚

I had the same problem. I felt really embarrassed putting the display rings on my pinky finger. I think 3 stone rings are really flattering on larger fingers and you get good coverage.

I’m  a size 8.5 in rings, and although I got chubby fingers, no one has ever said anything to me. no one notices, maybe when I get asked about my anniversary ring from my bf but they wouldn’t dare to be rude to say something mean. I might throw in, thanks it probably won’t fit you, I have chubby fingers but a girl doesn’t care. Nice rings ladies! Hopefully my anniversary ring will turn into an engagement ring soon ๐Ÿ™‚

@Bunny82:   When my bf and I were ordering my ring, the lady told me to get a smaller size than my finger size too, which is like getting pants a size smaller than what you are! I’m glad we both made the right choice, I got a little bit bugger of a ring due to my hands swelling duse to a medical condition.

@moriah:  I know right? I see these posts with Bees talking about their 3.5 size fingers! I’m like whaaa?! Mine is a 6 and I thought that was pretty small! Who knew I had fat fingers. One more body part and size issue to worry about ! lol

@mestisanz:  I agree with this. I think larger based fingers need coverage going east to west, verses north to south. I wear a 6.5 (thought it was a 6 but Fiance corrected me. lol) and I have to remember that for myself.

The plus of bigger fingers is a bigger diamond. lol!!! Sometimes you have to have it/larger stones so your hand looks balanced. I would also look at a wider band or bands that are decorated.

It’s so frustrating, no matter what body part, when you can’t try something on at the store. ๐Ÿ™

@btothez:  LOL!!! Same here!! I’m a 6.5 and I thought that was average. I’ve only known 2 people’s ring size…mom and a woman I used to work with. My mom is a 5 and that made since b/c she is a petite woman…wears petite clothes, etc. The woman I worked with was a 3.5!! She even said that was really small and I remember that because it was tight on my pinky.

But yes…I see all these sizes and I’m like…oh. So although my hands are small my fingers are little chunks. ๐Ÿ™

Im a UK size S + 1/2 which i think makes me a 9.5 in US sizes.

when we went shopping for our wedding bands it was the same issues that are coming up on here – the stores only seemed to have small sizes to try on. makes picking a ring VERY hard when the only way you can see it on is to squish it on your little finger!!
