Does the knife-edge setting make my finger look chubby?!

I thought it was just me who thought that, my knife edge makes my fingers look chubbier too. I prefer the other setting on you

I think the second setting is better, looks pretty.

I don’t know if it’s necessarily the fact that it’s a knife edge but it does look a little tight on you.

It might just be too tight, causing the finger muffin. Does the second ring fit different (ie, comfort-fit; slight curve on the inside)? If you find both fit the same yet just looks different, then maybe for your finger non-knife-edge would be more flattering.

Though I prefer non-knife-edge anyway for more comfort when holding hands (and getting hand squeezes!).

It looks way too tight! The second one looks much better.

I think the first one is too tight. It may not necessarily be the knife edge.

Love your nail color!

Pretty manicure. I think that the knife edge band actually draws the focus on the stone more so than the second band. Personally, I don’t have a knife edge setting for my e-ring b/c I don’t find them to be particularly comfortable. I agree with other bees, that the knife edge may simply be a little too tight. But it seems that it’s not something you wanted in the first place, so why not get what you thought you were getting in the first place, this way you will never have any regrets 🙂 GL

They both look too snug. You need to size up.

Yep. But really who’s looking that closely at your fingers on the reg? As long as it fits, it doesn’t matter if it makes your fingers look a little fat.

nous2 :  agree! It makes the stone stand out and look bigger. Which I think was the whole intention of the setting 🙂

I don’t think it’s an issue with the setting style. It just looks like it might be a tad bit too tight and need resized up .25 or .5. The second option looks the same to me. To some extent the indentations are going to be unavoidable no matter what size though and I agree with others that it wasn’t noticeable until specifically asked to look.

They both look slightly snug. I happen to prefer the style of the knife edge on you.

kailani18 :  I guess the non-knife edge is slightly more flattering on your finger, but I do like the look of the knife edge ring overall (seems to make the stone look bigger), and I don’t think people are going to be thinking your finger looks chubby.

The rings aren’t necessarily too snug (though they may be). Ring muffins may be a sign that they are too snug, but aren’t necessarily. OP’s fingers look similar to mine, which are tapered (like a tapered candlestick, which is thickest at the bottom and gets thinner as it goes up), and therefore all rings look tight on me, even if they aren’t actually. I always have a ring muffin, and it’s just due to how my fingers are shaped. The ring will turn, it will come off easily, and it doesn’t hurt or anything. And if I size up from my ring size, the rings aren’t secure on the finger.

OP, maybe try sizing up to see if the rings are actually too tight. However, you may just have a finger shape that will naturally cause a ring muffin top, which is fine. No one is going to be inspecting your finger that closely or judging you based on your finger shape.
