It wasn’t a thing for me. I wanted a solitare, so unless you go crazy large with 10 carats plus I don’t think you can cover your whole finger! My ring is around 2.5, and while I think it looks amazing I don’t have the coverage that say a halo ring adds.

I wanted a big ring, that was non-negotiable. I wouldn’t have gone down in quality but I would have gotten a colored gemstone or something (even a ring that was all metalwork was fine as long as it was big!). I don’t care for small (2 carat or below) rings for myself, although I do have a few small-ish right-hand rings.

@aliciaspinnet: I feel the same way about adding a weddingband lol…I love how my ring looks on its own..that’s too funny you said that..I thought I was the only one who thought that.
I love your ring! So stunning…I’m a sucker for halos (big time!) and it looks so pretty with the stacked bands.
I agree…that ring is amazing….I see so many beautiful, amazing rings on the bee…actually if it were not for the bee I wouldn’t of become a halo ring addict lol
your band is georgous! And your very right ….it deffinately draws attention to the center stone…which is also very beautiful!
your ring is also stunning. The oval shape makes it so beautifully unique…so many amazing rings…you all are very lucky ladies!

I never heard of the term finger coverage when I got engaged, but I knew I wanted something that looked substantial. Luckily my ring size is 4.25 so that didn’t require a huge stone. I was willing to sacrafice quality down to a point (as low as VS2/H), but budget also wasnt really an issue for getting what I wanted.

@DaniDev143: I wanted clarity and cut over carat. It was very important that I have an emerald cut. That was a dream of mine. I have other diamond rings, oval and round, but emerald was something I always loved. When I was asked about size, I felt that a carat, if not overly expensive, was a good size.

Have large hands, size 9.5, but I didnt pick my ring.. Hubby got me a thin 2mm band on the Engagement Ring, which at first I thought was too thin, but in hindsight it is perfect because I totally fell in love with stackable bands and it left me some room to stack anywhere from 3-5 bands… so I made my finger coverage up wtih my bands.

I won’t even pretend like I didn’t care about the size of my ring. I like big, obnoxious pieces of jewelry because I don’t wear much so I want what I wear to make a statement. My original set didn’t offer a lot of “finger coverage” but my new one is massive and I’m obsessed with it. It’s not a big center stone, though. It’s a smaller center with a double halo. I love how it has “levels” to create visual interest. I didn’t set out to find the biggest thing I could. I set out to find something I could live as much as my original set, and I love the new one even more!
PS, sorry for the chipped nails!

I wear a 8.5 … not the biggest nor the smallest; so FOR ME i would like a bit of finger coverage. With that being said … if he proposed with with a .3 diamond so be it. I want bigger coverage and i dont want a diamond …. so it makes things different for me in price. However, my mom has a diamond she has offered us to use but im sure its less than a 1 carat and i think the smallest would be a .5. But if we use my moms diamond i want to reset it from a solitaire to a double halo! 🙂
I guess in short i dont need a big diamond to get the coverage i want and can get with the setting.

@DaniDev143: Yes it is, I wish that my ring covered exactly half of my finger, it almost, does Although I wish it was a 2carat, but I will get an uprgrade at our ten year, so ill wait till then:)

@DaniDev143: I never considered finger coverage. I just knew what I liked and wanted and that’s what I told my Fiance I needed.

I looked at the ring coverage chart too, and technically the ring I chose is just on the “too small to be ideal” percentage size, but I chose it based on the feeling I got when I tried it on and the way it looked on my hand to my naked eye. I love big honking rings as well, but everything’s subjective!

Finger coverage is somewhat important to me. Luckily for me (and my SO’s wallet I suppose…), my ring finger size is a 3.25 so it’s not too difficult to get me a satisfying finger coverage! We talked about ring budget and expectations, and we decided on a 1.2 ct round with a halo. I went to the stores recently to try on a few 1 to 1.3 ct halo rings, and they looked great on me, so I’m really hoping he will propose and give me my ring soon!

I never heard of the concept of finger coverage. I just knew I wanted a thick euroshank band.
The .70 diamond it has in it looks massive to me. I wear a size 4. If I had bigger fingers I might feel differently.

When Fiance and I began our ring search finger coverage was never considered because we had never heard of it. Also, when we self taught ourselves the importance of the 4 c’s, finger ‘coverage’ wasn’t one of them. Fiance asked me to choose what spoke to my heart and that’s exactly what I did. Even after falling in love with the cluster rings it never occurred to me how much finger coverage they gave.
Just recently while speaking with a private jeweler about making custom bands for my ering, he told us that my center cluster of diamonds have a 4.0 carat diameter. Wow, it was at that moment I fell in love with finger coverage and it made me love my ering even more.
My ering has a 1/2″ diameter; thats about the diameter of a 5.0 carat solitiare and I love it. Here’s daisy:
