Hi bees! I am completely new on WB (this is my first post, in fact!) but I have been stalking the boards for awhile now LOL. I just got engaged a couple of weeks ago (YAY!) and just wanted a few opinions on my e-ring. I LOVE my ring and my wonderful Fiance for picking it out, and I believe it’s about a .5 center but I’m not positive on the tcw. I know the ring looks pretty big in the pic (please excuse the horrible nails and dry hands lol), but that’s because I have a size 3.5 finger My question is, although I love the ring so much, I’m not sure if it looks too small or proportional with my fingers, as I have very long fingers. I don’t want to sound ungrateful at all, because I did not want a large stone to begin with (I specifically asked Fiance for a .5 ct), I’m just beginning to think it may look a little small for my long fingers. I know if I do keep the ring past this engagement period, I will probably never want to upgrade for sentimental reasons. Any opinions would be much appreciated! Also, if anyone could post your small-ish rings on smaller fingers- would love to see more lovely rings!

I think it looks perfect on your hand! Not too big, but certainly not small, either! It covers almost the whole width of your finger, so there is no way it could look small!

Your ring looks beautiful on your finger! Once you add your wedding band it will complete the look and it won’t look un-proportional. My finger is a size 5 but it is also very small. My center stone is a .71 cushion in a rose gold halo. I think this is the perfect size for me. 🙂

That is not a small ring! I think it looks perfect and I agree a wedding band (you could always get a slightly thicker band) will complete the look.

I think it looks beautiful and well proportioned, but if you’re not thrilled, change it up. You should love it 100%.

Definitely not small!! Plus, you’ll be adding a wedding band at some point! 😀

Thank you! I love the finger width it covers, but I guess I’m a little self-conscious about the length of my fingers vs. the ring-height.
Your ring is GORGEOUS
I love the intricate details on the band, and of course I have a soft spot for halos lol. How did you decide on your band? I’m debating getting an eternity band or just a plain one with vintage designs.
Thanks! I didn’t think to consider how adding the band would make it look more proportional, but I think I prefer a thin band as opposed to a thicker one so it doesn’t overwhelm the e-ring.
Thanks, i definitely agree with you, especially since it’s something I’ll wear everyday, forever.

Thanks ladies! Does anyone else have pretty rings or wedding sets to show off? I was considering switching to a 3/4 ct (and paying for the difference myself) but I may just keep this one and try to find a band to enhance it. I don’t want to hurt FI’s feelings either

Thank you!! When my husband and I got married we just had bands. Mine is a 10kt white gold band. I just got my halo last month as an anniversary gift. I would like to add a diamond band later on but we shall see

Golly no. I’d say that’s big especially with the halo. It looks great.

I think you should measure the entire width of your center stone plus halos and then find one of those charts that tells you the percentage of finger coverage you have. Because you’re rocking well over 50 percent there.
You have lovely hands and long beautiful fingers. If you’re concerned about the length of the center stone/setting versus the length of your finger, that might necessitate changing the shape of your stone to something like an oval so you’re getting more height but comparable width.
Only you know what look you’re going for and what’s going to make you happy, but I’ll add my voice to the chorus of those saying your ring is beautiful and takes up plenty of room on your finger. Your ring seems to be in a sweet spot, size wise.

Honey, I have big ring and let me tell you sometimes I wish I have a smaller stone because I’m afraid to get robbed and people automatically branded me as materialistic. Once I looked at your ring, the center stone looks big it doesn’t look like a 0.5ct at all. You have such fine and long finger, it’s so beautiful on you. Congratulation on the engagement and I think you have such a nice engagement ring it’s absolutely whimsical in a way.

It covers most of your finger. I guess you could add a third halo.
