How Different Diamond Sizes Actually Look On A Hand

How To Make Your Engagement Ring Look More Expensive

When you’re on the hunt for the perfect engagement ring, it’s always super important to get a good idea of just how those carats will look against your hand. So it’s probably best NOT to order a ring online, without seeing and knowing the exact details of the ring you’re about to purchase.

It’s important to note that while a setting can totally affect just how large a diamond will actually look, you should also keep in mind that the stone will also look different across various hand sizes.

  • Women with smaller hands tend to gravitate toward smaller rocks.

In an Instagram video shared by Erstwhile Jewelry note, the video shows how a woman with a size-4.5 finger can easily pull off a 1.5- and 2.5-carat ring without it looking insane.

But for all you ladies who tend to run on the bigger ring side, NOT TO WORRY! You can always add a halo or clusters on either side of the ring to create the illusion of a bigger stone.

Whichever way you go, it’s always a good idea to try before you buy.
