Choosing the Right Ring Style for your Hand Type
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!
Princess-Cut & Round Stones are especially flattering for long fingers. Wider bands or bold style rings can also complement long fingers well.
Smaller stones can help make thin fingers appear wider. Thicker bands also work well to widen the look of your finger.
Oval, pear or marquise stones help lengthen the appearance of short fingers. Slender narrow bands create the illusion of length.
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.
Thicker, heavier bands will draw attention to the ring instead of the middle of your finger.
Keep the overall proportion of your ring small. Small round, princess, oval or heart-shaped stones will work well to complement your hands.
Larger hands can easily get away with bulky, chunky-style rings. Get creative and find something that complements your personality.
