Which Engagement Ring Shape Is Right For Me?

When it comes to picking out the perfect engagement ring, there are many factors to consider. You might have heard about the 4Cs -- Cut, Clarity, Carat, and Colour -- but you should also take into consideration which style looks best on your finger. Of course, you should always go with what you like the most, however, this guide will give you some insight on what shape best compliments different hand sizes.

Finding the perfect engagement ring doesn’t have to be difficult. Our Ecksand design experts share their trained eyes and knowledge on the flattering aspects and shapes of engagement rings. Keep reading to get a better understanding of what will be the best engagement ring for your finger. Our helpful guide is broken down into 3 categories of finger shapes.

Engagement rings for people with long fingers

Long fingers don’t necessarily need to be further elongated, but they do have the length to use. Long fingers make a great canvas for wide cut, lengthy diamonds. They take up volume on the finger without making it look bulky.

The best diamond shapes for long fingers:

  1. Emerald Cut Shape — We love the East-West Diamond Engagement Ring
  2. Pear Cut Shape — We love the Halo Pear Cut Diamond Engagement Ring
  3. Cushion Cut Shape (Opt For A Rectangular Cut) — We love the Cushion Diamond Halo Engagement Ring

Engagement rings for people with petite hands

Diamond and fine gem cuts that are round or squarish are most complimentary on petite fingers.

The best diamond shapes for petite fingers:

  1. Round Cut Shape — We love the Round Cut Diamond Solitaire Ring
  2. Princess Cut Shape — We love the Princess Cut Twisted Pavé Engagement Ring
  3. Oval Cut Shape — We love the Classic Oval Diamond Solitaire Engagement Ring

Engagement rings for people with large fingers

Here you want to accentuate the length and slim centre line of the finger, without going with a diamond cut that is too rectangular. If your diamond is too thin and long, it will leave too much space on the sides of the ring, making the finger stick out too much on the sides. Pear shape diamond cuts are the best for creating length and especially delivering volume. Also, on the list are round cut diamonds and hefty cushion diamonds (meaning a cushion diamond that isn’t too rectangular).

The best diamond shapes for large fingers:

  1. Pear Cut Shape — We love the Pear Cut Diamond Engagement Ring
  2. Round Cut Shape — We love the Round Cut Diamond Sapphire Halo Engagement Ring with Side Sapphires
  3. Cushion Cut Shape (Opt For A Square Cut) — We love the Secret Heart Cushion Engagement Ring

By picking the perfect engagement ring for your finger, your glistening emblem of love will forever make your hand look its best.
