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!

 

Short Fingers:

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.

 

Long 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:

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.

 

Thin 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!
