    Mines 39% and I love it. I voted up a bracket though because its borderline and if I had to choose, I’d go up and not down πŸ™‚

    heres mine…. It’s a 0.81 on a size 5

    My ring gives me about 75% finger coverage, my center Stone + halo measure a little over 11mm and im a size 3.5. But I wouldn’t mind having a little more coverage later in life πŸ™‚

    My ring is 40 percent coverage! It’s about as big as I can stand. Love seeing bigger rings on other women, but I don’t know how they can wear that without knocking it around, catching it in their hair, etc.

    I suppose I’m 100% since I’m a stacker girl!

    I like there to be a proportionate balance so it appears skin, rock, skin. It looks understated and classic to me. This is why I discouraged 2 carats or a halo. 1 1/2 solitare was/is my sweet spot! I wouldn’t mind a fat honker of a diamond ring as an old lady though. We’ll see how life goes haha. This is 47ish% coverage.

    I never ring or stone shopped with any thought about finger coverage. Realistically, me preferring 60% coverage wouldn’t matter anyway, as I prefer a solitaire, have a size 7 finger, and a 4 carat diamond simply is not in the budget. I’ve seen very large (“full coverage”) rings and very small rings that look fantastic, so I am not sure finger coverage comes into play much when determining the prettiest ring. Mine is about 47%, too.

    I’m not really sure what mine counts as because of the baguettes. It’s a 2.4ct old mine cut diamond on a 4.5 finger.

    Mine is at 52% but I voted down a bracket to 50% because if I had to get another, I’d go down rather than up. This is the largest I’d ever go for me personally, so I am very happy my band is thin and low profile.

    Mine’s about 52%. I could def go smaller and still be a happy camper. I find that more “coverage” makes my fingers look shorter/stubbier because you can’t see enough finger underneath which tends to elongate. I call it the capri effect.

    According to the chart, mine is around 40%. I honestly wouldn’t want to go any bigger – I like the way my stone looks on my hand…not too big, not too small. 

    (However, I do love seeing larger stones on others! :D)
