I have tiny fingers (size 4.5) and am having trouble visualizing the mm size that would provide good coverage on a size 8 finger (to help a friend). Any ideas?

the best I have been able to figure out to picture how a stone would look on a given size is to use a ring size chart (I can''t track this down right now but I found one somewhere online) to figure out the diameter of the inside of the ring, which approximates the diameter of the person''s finger. then you can have an idea of how much a given size of diamond would ''cover'' (not including halo/bezel, of course, which would add some diameter and might be a good choice). i actually played with using clipart circles that i could resize to figure out what the proportions might be.
that said, this isn''t foolproof by far -- my finger certainly isn''t perfectly round -- it is much narrower at the top of my hand and has more ''meat'' on the underside, so comparing the ''diameter'' will really only tell you what the stone will look like in proportion to the diameter of the ring (which is round), and it may cover more or less of the finger depending on the shape.
i hope this makes sense -- it is hard to explain!
