I don’t believe a full carat diamond can manage to look “small” on any size.. It’s a big stone. And with a halo? You will be good.

allie626 :  hi!  I was concerned about finger coverage as well.  I wear a size 7 but fluctuate above that when its hot. My sweet hubs got me a 1.35 carat round brilliant center with a petite pave halo and matching wedding band.  It created the perfect finger coverage :). I’m sure the ring you chose will look perfect!  A 1 carat with halo is a great coverage amount!! And Tacori is a fantastic jeweler!

allie626 :  I think what you need for your hand is personal.  If just the center of the ring has to fulfill the coverage, then you would need a bigger stone for it to look like a size 6 finger. I’ve had friends with ‘man hands’ rock at 0.5 carat. I have 10.25 ring size and prefer lower settings that don’t get knocked around and bang into stuff. So, I would rather have a wider ring over a taller ring. The Tacori is pretty, but it will be very high (between the setting and the 1 c diamond) and I would not be comfortable with it.   If you are still concerned about size, maybe a good option would be to find a less expensive setting (Tacori, althogh lovely, are very expensive) and put more of that into a larger diamond or add two side-stones? You can always upgrade your setting later. This was what my grandmother always advised her couples.  A Butterflies Three Stone (Whiteflash, in 18k white is $1395 with .5 ctw side stones), that would free us the $2k difference to put into a larger center stone.

Here’s a couple of threads about rings on larger fingers:

Here are some pics I pulled that seemed relevant

glitterysala :  agree, I wold rather a simple setting and a larger diamond, and then upgrade the setting later, once I had the stone size I wanted.

I was sooo worried about this as well, as I have a size 10 finger!  BUT when I got my ring it felt sooo large to me. I’m very happy with the size.


Here’s my ring. It’s a moissanite but it’s 1ct center with a .3 ct halo on my size 10 finger

I have a size 9 finger and my ring is a 2ct center stone. I’ve had it for a year, and I still haven’t gotten “shrinkage” yet. I still feel like the size is just right. Mine has a small halo around it from the petals, but it’s also a Forever One moissanite. It also sits fairly high like the one you choose, but I haven’t had any issues with that so far. I think you should go with what makes you happy and what you love. If that’s the ring, then that’s the ring! Don’t be concerned about what others might think, as long as you love it and how it looks. However, if you want something bigger because you are self conscious about your finger size (like I was), the I would strongly suggest moissanites. They have some beautiful settings as well for a lot less than the Tacori will run you. But it’s not a diamond, which is an important thing for many bees. 

Here’s some similar styles I’ve seen recently while looking for my wedding band.

I agree with glittery. If your concerned about finger coverage, I’d let the tacori setting go for a simpler halo and use the extra funds toward a bigger diamond.

Keep the halo-it will be cheaper in the long run.  The cost in upgrades will exceed the actual center you want for “coverage”.  But knowing what you know now, make sure whomever you purchase the diamond from allows “upgrades” and trade ins in the future.  I have a feeling you won’t take long to decide a larger center stone is in order.  Enjoy!
