This request has actually come from a friend who is recently engaged and is on the hunt for an engagement ring.
Although you might love a ring you see in the jewellers, remember that it may not suit you. Here is a quick and easy guide to choosing the ring that will look best on your hand.
Long and/or bony fingers – Choose a round or oval setting. A wider band will not exaggerate the length of your fingers.
Short fingers – Choose an oval or marquise cut, but make sure it doesn’t extend beyond the first knuckle, or it will emphasise the shortness of the finger.
Small hands – Choose a small ring. A large ring may look gorgeous, but it will look heavy handed (pardon the pun).
Large hands – Choose a large ring. Remember, this is all about proportion. Get a couple of extra diamonds thrown in – you’re worth it!
This is just meant as a guide. Choose the ring you love and which best represents the love between you and your better half.
