Choosing your Engagement Ring: Part 2 Finger Shape
PART 2: Choosing a ring by your finger shape
Shopping for your forever ring can be overwhelming. A lot of times the perfect ring you had envisioned does not look the way you hoped & can make you feel discouraged. In this case, try to choose an engagement ring style that compliments your hand shape!
Look for Marquise, Oval, & Emerald shaped diamonds as they help achieve the look of elongated fingers. Thin bands also enhance the look of elongated fingers.
If you are blessed with long fingers, most ring styles & diamond shapes compliment your hand perfectly. Although every cut of diamond compliments long fingers, Round or Princess are especially flattering!
Wide fingers tend to look best with lengthened stones/diamonds like Emerald or Oval cut. These shapes of stones elongate the fingers. Avoid wide settings as they tend to give the appearance of wider fingers.
For those of you with delicate, thin fingers- stick with Pear or Round shape diamonds as they visually balance the hand. Thick bands also compliment thin fingers beautifully as they create the illusion of width with your fingers!
