tracybee1970 :  for a ring size that large I’d consider a 3 stone setting. Maybe even one with halos. Maybe it’s just my own preference but I’m not a fan or trying to achieve finger coverage from a single stone.

My fingers aren’t fat per se, but they’re really short. I have a 1 carat equivalent moissanite with a pave band.

I had to look up the conversion to see what size that would be! Looks like 11.5 in US… that gives me an idea of a direction to help you! I would suggest Etsy, or Moissanite CO as you can choose any ring size! If you’re on a more strict budget you may even have luck on Amazon or Overstock 

I have what I consider short fat fingers (I swear they are like little sausages) and prefer a lot of finger coverage. So I know how hard it is to find that perfect fit! I have a sapphire Engagement Ring which I found easier to locate my perfect ring going that route than with a moissy, hope you find something you love! ♥️

I agree with pp but if your looking for decent prices on moissanite rings in large carat weights  try JTV, they do go up to size 12 I believe. They have nice moissanite rings in gold or silver and have a large selection to choose from. Good luck in your search!

tracybee1970 :  Have you considered a band? A substantial 5 or 7 stone band or an eternity ring would look lovely and timeless. Depending on your budget, I’m sure people can point you in the right direction.

If you want big finger coverage without such a high price I would go with a double halo ring, they’re soo pretty and sparkly!

I have chubby fingers and told my Darling Husband I was going to need some real coverage! I ended up with a solitaire e-ring and a 5 stone wedding band. Both my rings have pretty large individual stones (2.7 carat solitaire and 2.7 tcw wedding band with each diamond being just over 0.5 points) so sometimes I’m like this is a lot of bling but it definitely achieved what I wanted with regards to coverage. My husband got my ring made in NYC (we’re from Australia where the tax hike on diamond prices is ridiculous) so to us the prices were amazing! My husband also looked at James Allen and Blue Nile and said he really liked some of the options they had too. If I were you I’d definitely get a larger stone or look at a 3 stone engagement ring to maximise finger coverage. Good luck, how exciting!

I have a size T (probably should be a U as it’s a little tight!) ering which is a blue topaz stone reset from a previous ring. I find it’s perfect coverage for me without being too ‘in your face’ I had exactly the same concerns as you when I was thinking about what ring I wanted every high street ring was so tiny on my hands it made me really anxious. I’ve always had short fat fingers! But I absolutely love my ring. I’m not sure of the dimensions but I can find out for you if you like. Also because it’s so blue that’s automatically what I notice now as do other people. My fiancée has a moissy which is a 1.5 ct equivalent. She has slimmer fingers (think she’s an O) but I’ll show you a picture for conparison.

I would really recommend getting a custom made ring as I found that us larger fingered ladies aren’t catered for as much. Are you in the U.K.? Both mine and fiancées rings were made by a jeweller I found on Instagram and he’s ding our wedding rings too! 

 

Will post some pics in a sec! Slow internet here

I also wear a size 11 (size w) I would go with a pear shape or marquise as they have the largest coverage. I would also have wedding band that’s atleast 5mm and either pave or 3-5 stones. I have a 4 carat asscher cut center stone, half a carat on each side. My band is 10.35mm with asscher and round diamonds like my engagement ring.

I think I’m probably a size R and I’m very happy with my 0.25 ering. You can go as large and as dainty as you like. Obviously, a smaller ring will be less pricey. I got mine from a shop that specializes in antique jewellery.6fe09a47-994f-4fed-b9e1-09b897e40235_(2)

tracybee1970 :  I’m between an O & P, but my fingers are quite short & pudgy. I have a 1.25ct elongated cushion moissanite with a thicker bezel. Try cutting some pieces of paper to the size center stone you want and see how it looks 🙂

bezelbee :  Your ring is beautiful. I’m a longtime fan of bezels and your ring glows.
