So my boyfriend and I have been looking at rings a lot lately and I am IN LOVE with the riviera ring from BE, its everything I want. I was just wondering if it would look good on me, I have large hands, my palm is about 4 inches across and my ring finger is a size nine. Here is a ring pic for reference. Thanks!

I think that style would look nice on any hand really. What size center stone would you be getting?

Why wouldn’t it look good? Diamonds look good on everyone!
I think it’s a really pretty ring too!

I agree with the PP’s – this ring would look great on many brides! Very nice choice

Your finger, your choice; wear what you love. Well, unless your groom disagrees.
I love my Birkenstock sandals, with socks, and some of the Bees reading my post right now are cringing and probably want to chime in about how I’m committing some fashion faux pas or something. Am I gonna change my shoes? Nope.

Thinking of getting about a 1 ct. center cushion cut diamond. I guess what I am trying to ask is, this wouldnt look too small on my hand. I have a promise ring right now that has a thin band, and it just looks out of place lol!

You should try on some rings of similar size so that you can see what looks good to you on your hand.

It’s a beautiful ring, and I agree with PPs that it would look lovely on any sized hand. If you are worried about the center stone looking too small on your finger, here is a site you could look at to try and see what it might look like on your finger: http://www.diamdb.com
You can put in the different measurements of stones you are considering, and there is a place on the site where you can compare those measurements with different finger sizes. Cushion stones face up a bit smaller, meaning a 1ct cushion will probably look (from the top down view) smaller than a 1ct round, for example.
You mentioned that your current promise ring has a thin band, and that you feel it looks out of place on your hand. It’s hard to tell because the picture you posted is small, but it looks like the ring you’re considering has thicker shoulders. So it wouldn’t look the same as your current thin band. There would be fairly substantial metal on your finger.

I think that’s a gorgeous setting and I love cushions! As PP mentioned, cushions face up smaller than rounds do. So when selecting a stone take into account the size in mm not just carat weight.

It’s a beautiful ring, but I second what NFLwidow said… Try it on! I thought I’d love a cushion center stone so I bought one as a RHR and I hated it… This will sound dumb, but I thought it made my finger look so stubby.

I think it is a beautiful setting, no matter what finger size. I understand your worry, I have a size 9 hand myself (always had fat bottom half fingers where my fingers almost do a slim pyramid shape), and you worry about the band and stone size. The best thing you can do is go into a store and try them on in the stone size you want, only you can judge whether it’s too big or too small. Though I do have to warn you cushions can come up pretty small due to a lot of its carat weight being on the bottom. You may want to go slightly bigger to make up the size, depending on your budget. And as other posters have mentioned, check its mm dimensions because that’ll tell you how it’ll face up. As for bands go into a store and ask to try on different sized bands. I did this when I was at Samara James in the UK and they were able to show variety to try on my finger.

What shape stone would be a good center stone? Both my boyfriend and I HATE round diamonds, just not for us. I love radiants, cushions, and princess cuts.
