my partner and I are looking at a 3 stone oval cut e-ring, either moissy or diamond, and I have used the finger coverage percentage chart to find out about rounds but is it the same for ovals?
I would love to see some examples of solitaires or three stones and your finger sizes.
I’m a 3.75 – 4. not after anything flashy, in the round cut we were looking at .7 maximum for the centre stone.
Many many thanks in advance – and happy new year!!

No, the amount of finger coverage is different for an oval. For example A 1 carat round is about 6.5mm vs a 1 carat oval that’s about 7x5mm. So of course the finger coverage with an oval will be greater in length but less in width. Overall an oval will look bigger than a round because of its larger spread. I hope that helped.

I have small fingers like you (3.5) and a .7ish carat of any shape will give enough finger coverage to look substantial. That’s the up side of having tiny fingers!

sorry for the obvious question. Tiny fingers certainly have their advantages! We were thinking of a moissanite and I’m dreaming of the day Amora Gem comes out in oval but I think I’ll be waiting a few years!
I would love to see everyones oval cut e- rings!

Check out this site http://www.diamdb.com/compare/1ct-round-vs-1ct-princess/ my diamond is a 0.71ct Emerald shape diamond, but with a halo, and the perfect finger coverage for me!

I don’t know if this helps, but here’s my oval. It’s 2 carats and its also a (mini) three stone setting. My finger size is 5.75, but the ring wasn’t sized yet in this pic.

Sadiebelle: I second the diamdb website. You can actually look at just a .7 ct oval if you want, but change the finger size: http://www.diamdb.com/diamond/0.7ct-oval/
