Hands attract a great deal of attention because people talk with their hands. Select a ring that flatters your hand. The main factor when buying a ring is the setting or cut shape. The most popular shape is the round or brilliant cut. Other basic cuts include the pear, the marquise (boat-shaped), the oval, the emerald, the square, the cushioned and the heart-shaped.
The length of the fingers is the determining factor when selecting a ring. Long fingers can handle almost any style except extremely oversized rings. A ring must be in proportion to your hand and appropriate in general. Short fingers should be adorned with settings that remain within the knuckle. Oval or marquise shapes elongate the hand.
Round solitaire settings make a good choice. Comfort should be kept in mind when buying a ring; don’t forsake comfort for looks.« Earlobe | Colouring »
