Different rings suit different hand and finger lengths and shapes. Here’s your guide to choosing the perfect engagement ring.
Different engagement rings will suit different types of hands and fingers, and choosing the perfect fit can be tough, as you’ll soon discover that not every style looks as good on your hand as it does in the jeweller’s display case. But don’t worry, there is a shape and style to fit every hand and accentuate your beauty.
You Can Find the Perfect Match
When choosing premium grade diamond engagement rings in Sydney, look at different styles and consider the width and length of your finger, and the overall size of your hand. Compare these elements to:
- The style and width of the ring
- The size and shape of the main stone
Also take into account your usual nail shape and length: do you wear your nails short and shaped or long and manicured?
Your hand and finger shape is just one part of the equation when it comes to choosing your dream engagement ring. Your lifestyle and personal style are just as important. We have put together a few helpful guidelines, but if you have your heart set on a certain shape and stone, do honour that, but consider using the ring style to create the most flattering look on your hand. It is also a good idea to try on different styles to make sure you find the perfect fit.
- Rings for Long Fingers
Most ring styles will work well on long, thin fingers, but when choosing your ring, consider these points:
- Long fingers can pull off a bold style
- Round and princess-cut diamonds are particularly flattering
- Wider bands complement long fingers
- Slender Fingers
When it comes to selecting a ring for a slender finger, it is important not to overpower the hand.
- Thicker bands are great for widening the look of the finger
- Smaller stones make thin fingers look wider
- Rings for Short Fingers
Engagement rings for short fingers should make your fingers look elongates.
- Narrow-width, slender bands will make fingers look longer
- Emerald-shaped, rectangular stones will make short fingers look longer
- Pear, marquise, and oval stones will make short fingers look longer
- Rings for Wide Fingers
Try to find a style for wide fingers that won’t show too much skin either side of the ring, or your fingers will look wider. The good news is that wide fingers offer more room to have fun with different styles. And, when choosing diamonds for your ring, remember to buy it safely.
- Choose a medium to thick ring
- Choose marquise, emerald, rectangular or oval shaped stones, as narrow ones make your fingers look wider
- Asymmetrical designs and angular shapes minimize the width of wide fingers
- Round and cluster style stones in larger settings flatter wider fingers
- Large Knuckles
If you don’t like your knuckles, you can pick a ring that will draw attention away from them. Look out for heavier and thicker bands that draw attention to the ring instead of your knuckle.
- Smaller Hands
Try to keep the overall proportion of your ring small and pick oval, small round, heart-shaped or princess-cut stones.
- Larger Hands
Pick larger rings that will bring out your personality. You can easily pull off chunky and bulky styles.
The important thing is to try different rings to discover which styles and shaped look best on your hand.
