Your Finger Size vs. That Center Diamond Size
“My girlfriend said she loves the one carat size of her best friend’s engagement ring. But Trina is like a size four and Becky is an eight and a horsewoman.
Do I just get her a one carat diamond, or do we scale it up for her size?” Bertram was an engineer and he got me to thinking.
I’ve sold one caraters again and again and they’ve always looked a bit different on each woman who wore it. This is based on the finger size, and the design chosen.
I had never looked deeper except to mention that people should contemplate the look they want on their hand not the picture in the magazine.
Then I found MySparkly.com!
MySparkly.Com and the Difference Finger Sizes Make
Finding MySparkly.com was a happy event for me and perfect timing.
I spent time looking for 1ct and similar sized diamonds on different sized fingers on the website. I share them with you to compare.
If you have a larger size finger, it’s a fun reason to go with a larger diamond. But it is not a requirement.
Compare the picture at the top left of the size 2.5 woman in a 1ct. and this picture. It’s super helpful to be able to compare a style on a hand and know the finger size. A one carat diamond just factually looks bigger on the size 2.5 woman than on the size 9 woman.
It’d be very helpful in choosing favorite details to see how those details look on someone with your skin tone, your finger size and even a similar finger shape. That is the strength and helpfulness of the pictures submitted to MySparkly.com
A Halo Makes Your Diamond Look Bigger
If you have a particular size in mind and your budget says, “nope, you need to go a bit smaller than that,” consider adding a halo or even a double halo.
Comparing Vintage Styles on Different Finger Sizes
Her size 7.5 finger loves the width and engraved detail of this vintage setting for her 1.02ct diamond.
Skin Tones and Your Style
One of the things I love the most about MySparkly.com is the fact that there is a skin tone filter. We all look different and it’s super cool seeing examples on different skin tone types. I feel like that is missing from the ads I see.
What About Bertram?
He went for a 1.45ct. round brilliant and had me set it in a semi-bezel so she can ride and be at the stables with it. Dude is smart!
Let me know in the comments what you think of this helpful site.
I hope you find MySparkly.com as helpful as I do.
