How To Find A Ring That Suits Your Hand
Everyone’s hand is a little bit different. Fingers can be long, short, thin or wide; they can be spaced close together or far apart. Rings can always be resized for a perfect custom fit, but there are certain ring designs that flatter certain types of fingers, in the same way that certain dress patterns compliment certain figures. If you’re looking for a ring that will perfectly embellish your finger, follow these helpful tips for finding a ring that suits your hand.
If you have short fingers, your ideal ring should lengthen your hand. Narrow-width bands are the best way to create that elongated shape. Marquise, oval or pear-shaped centers are more elongating than rectangular or square centers.
Long, Slender Fingers
Many different styles of bands and stones will be flattering on long, slender fingers. The engagement ring or wedding band you choose is really dependent on your personality, so find a ring that suits your unique style. Rings with a princess-cut center diamond, are a particularly strong and dynamic choice for people with long, slender fingers.
Slender bands may accentuate the width of your fingers, so you may want to avoid them if you have wide fingers. A split-shank band can help to elongate the finger, drawing the eye along the length of the finger rather than focusing on its width.
If you’re trying to draw attention away from your knuckles, a ring is the perfect way to re-shift the visual focus of your hand. Wide bands and ornate centers are a great way to pull the eye along your finger away from your knuckles. Let the ring become the centerpiece of your hand, and all the other features of your finger will fade into the background.
Finding the most flattering ring for your finger can be a challenge. It’s important that your ring be proportionate and attractive without compromising your personal style. If you’re looking for your dream engagement ring, wedding band, or anniversary ring, you’ll find it in The Gold Mine's wide range of styles and designs.
