Diamond size comparison on hand guide
Knowing how big a diamond will look on your hand (finger) can be an important factor for many individuals. Buying a diamond ring is a costly event and getting this purchase right, needs to have some consideration and thought behind it.
Carat size is also distinguishable through cost. A 1.00 carat diamond for example, will be significantly more expensive than a 0.70, 0.80 or a 0.90 carat. You will also have to consider the cut, clarity, shape and colour of a diamond. These also have cost factors you will have to consider before you decide on what diamond you want.
You may consider buying a big diamond such as a 1.00 carat stone, but be willing to have a lower cut, clarity and colour specification. You can buy a large stone with a lower budget in mind, but be prepared for a lower quality stone.
The diamond ring can suit different hand and finger shapes. Does a small hand need a huge stone? It might not be the picture you painted once the ring is slipped on.
Diamonds Please recommendations:
- Small hand – small fingers – suits smaller diamonds. (Remember a small diamond with perfect colour, clarity and cut can be more expensive than a larger diamond).
- Small hand – long fingers – suits medium diamond sizes.
- Medium hand size with small finger length – suits medium diamond sizes.
- Medium hand size with long fingers – suits medium to large diamonds.
- Large hand size – suits medium to large diamonds.
Diamond size can also work well with the diamond shape. If you really want a larger diamond that stands out, but you have a small hand shape. Consider looking at a Marquise diamond or a pear shaped diamond. These shaped diamonds can make your finger look longer. The diamond shape works with the shape of your hand.
