There is a finger size coverage chart out there that explains the ideal size stone for each ring size.  I will post it if I can find it.

I think something around 1.5-2 carats would look beautiful on your finger.

Here is that chart.  It doesn’t go to 11, but it should give the a frame of reference.

it sounds like I have hands like yours– long fingers but chubby.  it’s tough because you want to get a ring that is loose enough to not do the muffin top, but snug enough that it won’t spin. 

since your finger is size 11, you might want to consider a center stone that is pretty big, like 2ct or something with a halo, so it’s proportionate. thankfully large moissanites are affordable!

OR, if you want a ring that is so loose that there is no muffin top at all, consider getting something like a 5 stone ring– that way, the row of stones sticking up should prevent it from spinning.  I hope that makes sense!

In my personal experience sometimes larger rings can make larger hands appear bigger. I know this is contrary to what the normal advice is.  My fingers are size 6 and I think a little chubby because they are quite short.  I tried thicker bands and larger stones and found that actually the smaller delicate bands looked better as longnn as there was no muffin top.  For me personally I went with a thin band that was a little loose and a very thin eternity band to match.  I think looser rings give the appearance of thinner fingers.  Obviously not so loose it will fall off, just enough so it has room to move.

I agree with the PP. Go with a multiple stone ring (maybe a three ring halo…love those) that will give you the width you want to balance out your finger, but also prevent spinning.

I’m a size 8 and have pretty chubby fingers–my center stone is just 1.2, but I think the side stones make a big difference.  Play around at a jewelry store that does sample settings in sterling!

I agree with @loopy_lou:  that a thin band can look better. it’s totally a matter of taste, but in my opinon, thick bands are unflattering on thick fingers- especially if both e-ring and wedding bands are thick.  but I’m thinking band, not the center stone itself.

@Nikki.choo: I would also say 1.5-2 ct. My advice would be to go to a jeweler and try on diamonds of the same size… that way you can get the look of it in person and have a better idea of what you want. I thought I would only be happy with 1.25… then I went to .90 and thought it looked great, we ended up with just over a carat, but I would never know what was good on me without trying it on!!

@Nikki.choo: I also have long fingers/ kind of *larger* hands. I’m 5’11 and my hands are proportionate to me, but are def not a size 7. lol.. But I’m waiting for my halo split shank, and I found that halos and split shanks look best on my hand. Here are some I found on moissaniteco. These are different from the one I’m waiting for, but similar idea.

Hope that helps ! Good luck!

 

 

P.S. I’d also like to add that my center stone is a 1 ct round with a cushion halo, and with the halo it covers a lot of my finger.

I have pretty chubbo fingers, too (size 9) and my center stone is 1ct. I feel like it looks like more than “enough.” Also, if you pick a style with a halo, that adds to the look of the size of the center stone. My ring is all moissanite, too!

ETA: One last thing, I know some people will probably disagree, but I really like the look of a thinnnn band on thicker fingers. My band is 1.5mm and I absolutely love it. I feel like it cuts down on the finger “muffin top” and really makes the center stone pop more than if it were on a wider band. Just my opinion though 🙂
