I’m looking to purchase an engagement ring from Blue nile.
I have tiny fingers and so anything over 0.5 ct would be too much for me.
I want a four prong bc I love the modern and minimalistic look. I don’t mind the prongs making the diamond look a little square but I really don’t want the prongs overwhelming the stone. I don’t like the chunky look. Which is all too common in “smaller” diamonds.
Guessing I’ll have to have it special made but since I’m ordering online I want to be specific with what I’m looking for and how the prongs should be formed.
I’d love some close ups on four prongs with around 0.5 ct round stones. Different views if possible. If you have a Blue nile comfort fit setting I would love to see that too!
please write specs such as ct, ring size and band width.
pls no halos or sidestones.

I have a 0.54 ct round diamond. My finger is a 6.75, and each band is 2 mm

This pic is several years old, so please excuse the potato quality. The diamond and rings have been repurposed into a necklace so this is the only pic I have. Diamond is a .52 in a platinum Tacori setting, size 6.5. I’m not sure how wide the Tacori band was, but the diamond band was 2mm wide.

I have tiny hands and small fingers that are on the narrow and short side (size 4.75 but my rings are a 5 which are fine). After seeing so many pics on the Bee I realized my finger area where the rings go is shorter than everybody else. A stone larger than a .5 ct looks like too much on me also and would take up more than half of the space on that part of my finger.
On me, 4 prongs make my small fingers look good, whereas for some reason the 6 prong settings make my fingers look shorter and almost stub-like. So I too am a 4 prong lover as they tend to balance my finger and make it look lovely. The 6 prong just looks too round and thick, making my finger look blunt.

Heres my 0.51 on a 3.25 finger. Please excuse the horrid nails as I lost a battle against the sand that day.😊

I have the petite cathedral setting from Blue Nile and I love it! Sorry I can’t seem to make the pic smaller.

I feel like I could have written that. I’m exactly the same!! I haven’t been able to put my finger on (no pun intended) what it is about six prongs and a larger diamond that just make my hand look ridiculous. Like I’m a kid playing dress up 😊
