Here at Medawar Jewelers, we’re proud to offer a selection of diamond engagement rings that we’re confident will satisfy any fiancée looking for the perfect style to match his bride-to-be. But once you’ve picked the right ring, the next question is: “Which cut of diamond would look best on my hand?” There are a lot of factors that go into that decision—personal preferences, ring shape, and the special physical qualities that make up your hand.
Today, we’d like to offer a brief guide to our guests about popular diamond cuts, their unique qualities, and how to match them with the shape of your fingers.
For Long Fingers: Princess Cut Diamonds
The perfect complement for a long, slender finger is a diamond that’s compact, delicate, and maybe a little wider. Princess cut diamond engagement rings are an ideal blend of these qualities.
The diamond engagement rings we selected are capable of being set with larger princess cut diamonds that perfectly accentuate the grace of your finger.
For Short Fingers: Oval Cut Diamonds
On the other hand, shorter fingers look best with a diamond that’s longer, rounder, and slimmer. A lady with shorter fingers may also prefer a narrower band that creates the illusion that one’s fingers are longer than they are.
We picked the VerragioClassic 908OV, Y.O.U. model #1OV1052EK7W4, and ParadeHemera R3022-O2 because the three oval cut diamond engagement rings blend a narrow band and a setting for a longer oval cut diamond with the sumptuous luxury of platinum, 14 and 18-karat white gold, as well as an array of glamorous sidestone diamonds.
We would also suggest emerald cut and marquise cut diamonds for the lady wishing to create the impression of more length with an engagement ring.
For Wide Fingers: Radiant Cut Diamonds
Brides-to-be with wider fingers may be under the impression that a slender cut of diamond might make her fingers seem daintier. On the contrary, slender cuts of diamond (such as emerald cut and certain oval cut diamonds) only make a wide finger seem wider. The ideal diamond for a broad hand is a big, voluptuous stone set in a thick band, which is a spot-on job for a radiant cut diamond.
Radiant cut diamond engagement rings like the Kirk Kara Carmella SS6983TC-R and the Y.O.U. model #1RN907FK7W4 take advantage of big bands and haloes to create the impression of size, and the A. Jaffe Art Deco MES403-135 cradles your 0.75 to 1.25-carat radiant cut diamond in such a way that the center stone looks far bigger.
