If you are in the pursuit of the perfect engagement ring, you are probably spending a lot of time on browsing different metals and diamond cuts, hoping for an eventual ‘love at first sight’ experience. We cannot deny that deciding on which type of ring is meant to be yours until the end of time can be an overwhelming, confusing and intimidating shopping experience, especially for jewelry novices.

Engagement Ring & Diamonds

This detailed Kobelli guide will introduce you to the basics of choosing the ideal proposal ring and will help you find ‘the one’ for your unique finger size and shape, regardless if long, short, wide or slender. To start, the first thing to know is that different styles of rings are made to embellish different finger types. In other words, choosing the perfect ring for your finger is like choosing the perfect swimsuit for your body.

Good news is that the jewelry market of the modern day is offering countless designs and shapes, so there is, undoubtedly, the right ring for your finger waiting for you out there. You will only have to learn how to find it. And this is why we are here to give you a hand in completing this important mission and save you hours of trying on wrong jewels that won’t accentuate the beauty of your hand.

The magic formula is the following one:

Finger Length x Finger Width + Ring Style + Ring Shape = The Right Match

This means that when browsing different rings for your proposal, you should consider your finger’s length and width, including the size of your hand. There is also another couple of things you should take into consideration:

 - The size and the shape of the center stone

 - The width and the style of the piece itself

Last but not least, what is the typical length and shape of your nails? Are they generally trimmed long or short, shaped and manicured? Since longer nails have the effect of lengthening the appearance of the fingers, the answers of the aforementioned questions also take part of the equation. The same importance should be given to your personal style, as well as to your lifestyle. The role of the engagement ring is not to only look beautiful on a lady’s hand, but to also reflect her inner beauty and personality, without being an obstacle for her active lifestyle.

Engagement Rings

In the lines that follow, we are presenting you the different types of finger-styles and the right engagement-ring options for them. Hopefully, you will find the missing pieces of your puzzle here, which will take you to the ideal ring for your dream proposal.

SHORT FINGERS

Ladies with short fingers should opt for a ring that will promote a more elongated look of their hand. For this purpose, we warmly recommend to consider any of these engagement-ring styles:

-  Slender, narrow-width rings

-  Marquise, pear or oval stones

-  Rectangular emerald stones (they should not be too large in size, as they can cause an imposing and overwhelming effect on the look of your hand).

SLENDER FINGERS

When looking for a proposal ring for slender fingers, an important thing to consider is to not overpower them.  To complete this goal successfully, you can choose between:

-  Smaller center stones

-  Rings with thicker bands to widen the appearance of your finger

LONG FINGERS

When it comes to long, thin-looking fingers, most styles of proposal rings can work smoothly and nicely. However, the very best options you can never go wrong with, are:

-  Stones in round cut and princess cut, which are particularly flattering

-  Wider bands in the so-called ‘bold style’ to complement the length

Our exclusive recommendation:

WIDE FINGERS

One of the most important things to consider when choosing a proposal ring for wide fingers is to look after a style that will not show off too much skin on the both sides of the ring. Otherwise, the ring will give an even wider appearance to the fingers, which is absolutely not the goal.

Much to your surprise, having wide fingers opens a lot of opportunities for experimenting various styles of engagement rings, ranging from retro and vintage-inspired to classic ring models. In order to ensure the best selection, take into account the following style recommendations:

- Wide marquise, oval, emerald and other stones with rectangular shape (on the contrary, narrow-shaped stones will emphasize the wide appearance of your finger)

-  Round-cut stones and cluster styles in larger setting do a perfect job in embellishing wide fingers

-  Thick or medium bands

-  Asymmetrical designs and angular shapes are efficient in minimizing the finger’s width

BIG KNUCKLES

Many women with big knuckles are not really happy for having them, especially when it is time for some engagement-ring shopping. Our expert advice for these ladies is to look for a ring that will draw the attention away and not toward their knuckles. For this reason, you should opt for:

-  Thicker and heavier bands, which will give an accent to the ring instead of the middle part of your finger.

 

Our exclusive recommendation:

When deciding which style of proposal ring will go best with your finger type, keep in mind that the model of ring will not only reflect the look of your finger, but also the look of your hand. Hence, one more sub-category for a smarter and easier ring purchase:

 

SMALL HANDS

 -  If having small hands, the best thing to do is to keep the overall ring proportion small

-   Small oval, round, princess or heart-shaped gems can work pretty well for this purpose
