When trying on rings, you'll quickly find that not every style looks as good on you as it does in the window. There is a ring style and diamond shape to complement every finger type so let's have a look at the typical guidelines to follow when ring shopping!



Long Fingers

Princess-Cut & Round Stones are especially flattering for long fingers. Wider bands or bold style rings can also complement long fingers well. 

18ct Rose Gold Diamond Ring - $3,135.00
9ct Yellow Gold Princess Cut Ring - $1,575.00
9ct White Gold Emerald Ring - $1,199.00





Slender Fingers

Smaller stones can help make thin fingers appear wider. Thicker bands also work well to widen the look of your finger. 


9ct White Gold Diamond Leaf Ring - $1,599.00
9ct White Gold Sapphire Split Ring - $1,399.00
9ct Yellow Gold Cz Ring - $399.00




Short Fingers

Oval, pear or marquise stones help lengthen the appearance of short fingers. Slender narrow bands create the illusion of length. 

18ct Two Tone Oval Diamond Ring - $5,199.00
9ct Rose Gold Morganite Ring - $1,599.00
Georgini Silver Marquise Ring - $69.30




Wide Fingers

Go for wide Oval, Marquise, Rectangular or Emerald Shapes. Narrow stones will make fingers look wider. Medium to thick bands, cluster style and larger settings flatter wider fingers.

9ct White Gold Aquamarine Ring - $1,399.00
9ct Emerald & Diamond Ring - $1,199.00





Big Knuckles

Thicker, heavier bands will draw attention to the ring instead of the middle of your finger. 


18ct White Gold Crossover Ring - $6,149.25
Two-Tone Diamond Dress Ring - $4,899.00
9ct White Gold Sapphire Ring - $1,399.00





Small Hands

Keep the overall proportion of your ring small. Small round, princess, oval or heart-shaped stones will work well to complement your hands. 

9ct Yellow Gold Cluster Ring - $799.00
9ct Rose Gold Dainty Diamond Ring - $799.00
Gold Plated Cz Stacker Ring - $32.99



Large Hands

Larger hands can easily get away with bulky, chunky-style rings. Get creative and find something that complements your personality.
