I have massive fat fingers. A sad family trait. I’m about a size 11
From other rings I own I know I need a big ring because small rings make my fingers look massive.
I tried on a ring and it was a size too small (Picture C for visuals)
Am pondering whether to get that same ring in a bigger size (Pic A) or a different ring (Pics B and C)
Other half is planning on proposing soon but we’ve agreed that I will choose the ring.
Ring A is 1.4ct equivalant with a 6.5mm center stone
Ring B is 1.5ct equivalant with a 6.5mm center stone
Ring C is 2.5ct equivalant with a 2.5ct stone center stone (site doesn’t say what mm stone it is)
What do other Bees think? Has anyone got massive fingers and which type of ring suits them best?

I would go for the 2.5 equivalent. It would be beautifully proportioned, not too big or too small for your finger.

mcstuffins : I’d go with the 2.5 equivalent. I wear a size 8.5 and have a 1.43ct solitaire and feel like it’s too small, i’ll be upgrading to a 2+ soon.

I would do the 2.5 equivalent or a nice thick eternity band as an ering so you would get the coverage and the sparkle but aren’t having to figure out center stone sizes. All of the settings are beautiful, though. Do you usually wear rings and do you have a preference for certain styles? (blingtastic sparkle, simple elegance, central focus or all over blam! ?)

mcstuffins : I like option 3! Bigger stone, and I like the 3 stone setting more than the other two as well.

TwilightRarity : I don’t really wear rings. But when I do I always wear either stacked rings or chunky rings. Usually small stones in a chunky band but that wouldn’t really look like an engagement ring, more costume jewellery. So I want something slightly more traditional but definitely not a solitaire
Thin bands just look ridiculous on my hands

I’m a size 9.5 finger. But for some reason I’ve found that larger diamonds make my whole hand look massive. Maybe it’s me idk. I like Ring C because I prefer simple bands.
My ring is a .25 carat, pear cut solitaire. It’s set in 14k white gold. It makes my hand look slimmer and more femine than the larger diamons that I also tried. I’m really self conscious about my hands

I’d look for a thick shank, at least 4mm… the larger stones, too. For that reason I like B

Size 11 fingers unite! Lol
I am leaning toward ring C because I think it’ll give you nice finger coverage. My e-ring has a 6.5mm stone, but the gold around it gives my finger 10mm of coverage (it’s shaped like a rose, so the extra mm are golden “petals”) and I really like the coverage I get from my ring as a whole!
