- Stay away from pear cut diamonds
Pear cut diamonds are too “soft” and slender at the tip, making the fingers look almost “naked” and wider than they are.
- Try to go for bigger and wider diamonds
Having wide fingers means you can pull off bigger rings. Though this might sound scary - you might have to go for a bigger diamond (i.e. a more expensive one!), remember that radiant or emerald cut diamonds are cheaper than rounds.

- Three-stone rings flatter wide fingers
Any engagement ring with an oval, radiant, or emerald-cut diamond will look great! If you prefer to go for a round, go with three stone rings! They are ideal as they will cover the entire width of the finger, which will make fingers appear more slender than they are.
