I have sausage fingers.  My hands literally swallow 1ct stones.  You can’t even see them, they look like 1/2 carats or less.  It’s not you, its our fingers.  get some birthday bling to stack with it, but don’t fuse them.  If your fingers ever swell you probably woulnd’t be able to wear a 3 band stack.

yaya17 :  I have the same issue with my fingers but sometimes when I wear my larger rings it makes my fingers look larger also…maybe I have finger dysmorphia. ๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ But in your case I think your ring looks perfect on your hand and the color of your diamond really brings out your skin tone. I think if you add a wedding band maybe choose yellow gold band to compliment the yellow of your diamond instead of making it look like one large ring and going with two matching white gold bands. Just a thought. Also Congrats on your engagement!

I don’t think it looks anywhere near small, still looks like a big diamond to me! (And I love the ring in general because it looks just like mine! Except mine’s smaller)

I think this looks great on you, and the halo helps to expand the ring’s coverage. I have a large hand as well. My fingers are fairly thin — size 5.5, but my hands themselves are large and my fingers are long. I’m getting a 2+ carat round center with a dainty halo. I just wasnt getting the coverage I wanted with less carat weight.

I have the same issue. My finger is a size 7 but I have super long fingers and I’m tall so everything looks smaller.. My friend is 5’1″ and is so lucky she can put on a .5 carat and it looks MASSIVE on her.

The jeweler put a positive spin on it for me though, I have room for more big rings since my hand is big hahah

yaya17 :  it looks perfect on you! I like your ring a lot. You fiance did a great job picking it out. Personally, I wouldn’t add anything more than the wedding band

I agree with PPs that your ring looks totally gorgeous and I LOVE the thin band and the thin halo. I think it accentuates the stone beautifully. That said I also have a somewhat larger ring size (size 7) and I also sometimes covet the thin fingers that make stones appear so much larger. So I definitely don’t blame you for feeling that way but I’m with you that there isn’t anything you can do about your ring size and sadly having bigger fingers doesn’t give you a discount on diamonds so we just have to be happy with how our rings look despite the fact that it might look bigger on a smaller hand ๐Ÿ˜›
