Default What style of engagement ring looks best on a woman with fat fingers?

I am trying to pick out an engagement ring. My fingers, however, are chubby. I was wondering if anybody could give me advise on what styles of rings might look better.



What diamond cut will look best?

What type of band?

Band thickness?

Should the band have side stones?

How large should the center/main stone be?

Thanks! Will choose best answer!

I don't have specific advice, but pick something that makes you happy and try to accept and love yourself!

The fatter the better.

I have skinny fingers, and when I was younger, I picked the smallest rock and skinny band I could find! You need a microscope to find the diamond, but it was about $300 and we were poor then. But by the time our 25th Anniv. hit . . . I had it resized and bought a larger stone & added another $2,000 anniversary band, & restyled the whole ring, still using the main style. So, it went from $300, to about $30K.

I'm smarter & wiser when it comes to rings now, too!

Diamond cut- a Marquise cut will make your fingers look a little slimmer because it's an oblong shape which will visually elongate your fingers. However, if you have short fingers as well then you'll want to avoid it because it will make your fingers look shorter because it will cover up more area on them. An oval shaped diamond will do the same thing for the same reasons. A normal, round cut diamond works for just about everyone. I would avoid a square cut one.

band- you will want a medium to thick band. A thin band might make your skin bulge out on the sides, sort of like a finger muffin top. As for styles of bands, I'm not sure. Try on a lot of different styles and see which one looks best. If you have a cool skin tone, silver bands will probably look best. Warm skin tones look best with gold bands.
**get the band sized correctly. if it's too small it will make your fingers look chubbier

side band having stones- I'd say no. Diamonds on the side will stick out a little and make your fingers look wider. But again, it's best to just try it out and see what you think.

center stone: I think that one is up to you. A bigger diamond might make your fingers look more proportional but that really depends on your financial situation. But if money isn't a huge factor then go for a slightly larger diamond. Not extremely large though because that can make your fingers look larger just because of the added bulk.

All of this is just my opinion, but I think it's worth at least considering the points I mentioned above. The most important thing is that you find a ring you love. Congrats on the engagement!
