I don’t have particularly small fingers but happy to share my small (by US standards!) solitaire and plain platinum wedding ring:

Glad to help. πŸ™‚  I’ve learned that my finger size is considered small its a 4.5.  The ring is sized to a 5 to allow for swelling.  I love my solitaire with a plain band and wedding band.  My diamond is not nearly as high quality as yours but it still sparkles just fine and is lovely. If you really want a diamond band I say go for it, but it do love the look of the plain ring, and being able to wear the plain band in dodgy neighbor hoods or even turn the diamond into my palm.  Mostly just the neighbor hood where I wax my eyebrows lol.  Not the best neighborhood  but they do such a good job! 

Heres some thread links that migh help: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/round-cut-brilliants-unite/page/4#axzz2PrFzun8S

My fingers aren’t quite as small as yours, but I’m about 5-5.5 (these are a size 5.5, I hate tight rings). The band is about 2mm, it’s about the same as the e-ring band too (but the e-ring is knife edge so it’s hard to tell how thick it really is)

@paris87:  Because it’s channel setting, it’s just platinum on platinum. The metals scratch each other a little bit over time, but I bring them into the shop for a yearly cleaning/checkup to make sure all the diamonds are still secure, and when I get them back they look good as new πŸ™‚

@paris87:  Ps about the hiking etc, both my Darling Husband and I bought stand-in rings (for less than $100 combined) to wear initially for our Hawaiian honeymoon where we had things like hiking and surfing planned (and nobody wants to lose their diamonds in the ocean!), that we now keep around for anytime we do anything that makes us nervous about our expensive rings…granted my mother has never taken off her diamond wedding set and has never lost it or damaged it or anything (same for my boss and another coworker, I feel like our generation is for some reason a little more wussy about our rings, lol)

 If you don’t mind, can I ask for the specs of your rings?  I love the look and am considering the same combo (solitaire+channel set).  My ring size is 4.75.  How many stones and total carat weight is your band? And what is the carat of your solitaire (for proportions’ perspective).

@annabelle_lee:  the e-ring is about a half carat, and the band is about a half carat total as well I believe (it is a full eternity). My fingers are also pretty short in real life (they somehow look longer in pictures though), so I didn’t want any larger

@Mrs Christopher:  Can I just say that I really love how your rings look! The simplicity of them is very beautiful.

@BookishBelle:  I agree with the wussy thing lol.  In my case my setting is an heirloom so I’m sort of guarded about even though my grandma wore it everyday. I’m scared to lose it for that reason.  I got a cz stand in for my parttime job because I clean with chemicals and handle pets all day.  I tried to only wear the band but I missed having something sparkly, I got a stand in wedding band made of tugnsten too.  That way if I go on a run or we went camping or something where I would wear only the band I wouldn’t lose the original heirloom wedding band either. πŸ™‚  I wear my original most of the time with the exception of when I’m doing the part time work or at a run

 

@paris87:  

@Creiddylad:  Thanks πŸ™‚  That’s what I love about them too, the classic simplicity

I too am unsure whether to go for the traditional practicality and simplistic beauty of a solitaire or a more glamourous version with some smaller friends to partner my main rock.
