Mine ring size is 7.25 and honestly I don’t know why…I don’t feel like my fingers look all that big, but apparently they ARE!  My rings looks alot smaller on my hand then they would on someone else’s. Center stone is .90ct princess cut for comparison purposes. I do have arthritis in my hands already and wonder if that is why my fingers are bigger? Regardless…

I’m not married yet, but had to try on the band with my e-ring once I had it reset from a solitaire to a 3 stone, this photo is a little small, but you can tell the ring looks small on my fatty fingers.

My baby sister’s ring is a 3 stone 1.5 carats. Her ring size is 7.75. My ring is a 3 stone 2.5 carat ring (no pics). My ring size is 8.5. I asked for a larger sized ring b/c I have fat fingers.

 

Here is my sister’s ring….

JB, your sister’s fingers don’t look big to me either. Her ring is gorgeous!

I wear a size seven ring finger and I own a lot of rings in all shapes and sizes.  I find that the size of the stones doesn’t make the finger look larger as much as the width of the band and the size of the band.  If the band is too tight and makes you get muffin top on either side, it’s going to make (1) the stone look smaller and (2) the finger look larger.  If the band is a very narrow band it can make the stone look larger but it can also make the finger look larger.  I know I really like the look of my Engagement Ring stacked with my wedding band because it is a wider look – which is more proportionate for my finger.  Everyone’s finger shape and length are different – it’s very dependent!

MrsK2Be…you are SO correct about the muffin top thing. I actually ordered my ring .25 larger to be truthful…I just don’t like them to fit too tight, the jeweler wanted me to get a 7 but I didn’t want to. I don’t like anything tight, I even wear large or even men’s pj’s to bed because I like them to hang off my hips and don’t want anything tight around my waist. Hehe.

LOVE your rings!!!!!

Student Bride, I like your band…that’s really pretty!

@crebre: I’m shameless… I know!!!

Admittedly though, sometimes I get bored with looking at them everyday and then when I post them it gives me a renewed sense of appreciation  for some reason 🙂

I have a 7 or 8 i can’t remember, but i have a 1 ct princess and i think it looks perfect on my hand. I too was silly and worried that too small of a ring would look bad on my fat little fingers ;p
