My soon to be fiance recently purchased an engagement ring for and it is currently being made. I should have it the first week of January. It is is 1.25 cushion cut in a halo setting. I am not sure what the total carat weight will be with the halo setting. My worry is, I have big fingers. I’m a size 8. I did not realize how big my fingers were until I started visiting this site. I wanted to see pictures of other ladies with larger fingers with the same or near the same carat weight. Below is what the ring looks like.
Can you help me out ladies?

@Janineforever: not the best picture, but this is my size 7 finger in my grandmothers engagement ring. I think a 1.25 with a halo will look perfect on your finger. I tried 1 carat solitaires on at different stores and they are just not for me, too small for my finger. So when it’s our time to get engaged, we are getting a 1.5 carat equivalent round moissanite with a pave band. Beautiful ring by the way! It’s gonna be gorgeous on your finger 🙂

@Someday_Mrs_Maguire: I should add that this ring is antique and is a very tiny diamond, around .20-.25 carats in a square setting to make it look bigger.

I think you will be fine with finger coverage! My center is a 1.11 cushion and my finger is a little smaller, it’s about a sz 7 (ring is sized to 7 1/4 but is way too loose, getting re-sized soon). Anyway, here it is

Thanks Ladies!!! All of my girlfriends are telling me that I should be expecting some huge ring. I’m more concerned with quality over quantity though.

@Janineforever: Here’s a handy chart:

my finger is smaller (size 6) and I have a .96 carat, according to the chart posted above, we’ll have about the same finger coverage, except yours is a halo and mine is a solitare so yours will look even bigger than mine.
Hope that helps a little

I’m sorry I don’t have a picture that fits your stats, but just wanted to say that I think it’s going to look perfect.
I’m a 5.75 (essentially a 6) and have a 1.1 cushion center with halo, and it’s pretty big. Bigger than I anticipated and honestly I’d be happy with something a little smaller! So I think a 1.25 with halo is going to look great on a size 8 finger.

My center is not as big as yours will be, but I wanted to say congrats! That’s a very nice ring!!!

My finger is a size 4. Here it is with a 7mm (1.25 ct equivalent if it was a diamond) black sapphire.

@JMBred: Thanks! It’s sterling silver. I got them on sale on eBay. They were $10, and I paid $3.50 each on sale. I got them to see if I like the size of the center stone on my finger. They are size 5, so a size too big. I should have mentioned that.

1.25 is quite a large size, even on a size 8 finger. I think there is an optimal finger/stone size region (some rings can look so small the finger can look like it’s “eating” the ring, but that’s usually not really the fault of the stone…it usually means it’s a smaller stone in too thin metal and often too tight as well) but that chart posted above sets an optimal region is a bit on the large size. …Then again, I don’t like big honkers, because I feel they can get to a proportion that looks unfeminine, and after a certain size stone it doesn’t matter how thin the metal is, the stone itself is too big. If only celebs would realize that and stop wearing what looks like little girl dress-up time rings!
In any case, I don’t think you have any reason to worry… your ring won’t look small for sure!
