There is a perfect, ideal diamond engagement ring for you! Let Hannah Florman, private jeweler in Boston, help you discover the various diamond stone shapes to find the right cut that accentuates your hand.
I HAVE SHORT FINGERS
Oval, pear or marquise diamonds help lengthen the appearance of your finger.
Rectangular emerald-shaped diamonds can lengthen short fingers, as long they aren’t so big they overwhelm.
Go with a slender, narrow-width bands to the illusion of length.
I HAVE WIDE FINGERS
Generally diamond stones make wide fingers look even wider. If you pick an oval, marquise, or emerald, look for a diamond that is “chubbier” versus “skinny”
Square-cushions and round diamond in a larger setting flatter wider fingers.
Choose a medium to thick band,
Angular shapes and asymmetrical designs both minimize the width of the finger.
I HAVE SKINNY FINGERS
Slender hands shouldn’t be overwhelmed by a huge diamond. Pick a size that is proportional to your hand.
Oval, marquise and pear cut diamonds tend to make the fingers look skinnier and longer. Avoid these shapes if you don’t want the illusion of longer and skinnier fingers.
Round, rectangle cushion, princess and emerald cuts all look flattering on a skinny band.
Stick with a thinner band
