My ring is a lot smaller, but I found this nifty finger coverage chart which might help you. It looks like with your ring and stone size you should havea bout 55% finger coverage. For comparison (sort of…) I have a .75 stone and a 5.5 finger, which is 38% finger coverage. Good luck!

eta: the ring you picked out is beautiful and so unique! Good choice ๐Ÿ™‚

Well, are you into big rings? If so then I wouldn’t worry about it. Me, I couldn’t wear such a thing, but then again I have small fingers.

Will it look big? Yes, it will look very big… a 10 mm stone on just about any hand is going to be very big. If that’s your style then go for it! Although I would be more concerned about it being SS and topaz more than anything. Both are not good for longevity and withstanding daily wear.

It will look big but gorgeous! I wore a roughly 5ct white crystal oval for a while until the crystal chipped ๐Ÿ™ I have size 9 1/2 fingers, I Think it looked big but not comically so. 

Fiance gave me a 10ct? Blue topaz I’d absolutely have set in a ring if it wasn’t emerald cut (emerald cut doesnt suit my hands)

@jenart:  It’ll look large, but I don’t think it’ll look garish or anything. Such a lovely and unique design, too! Here’s the chart pp was talking about that talks about finger coverage:

Based on the chart your center stone should look something like this 9ish mm stone looks on the model’s size six finger. it’s a round cut so not quite the same, but the mm size shows the right amount of coverage:
