Could this be a middle finger ring?

I have this lovely vintage ring that is part of my "work diamond" wardrobe. It's a little big for my RH ring finger and I've been considering making it a middle finger ring. I like those and don't actually have any. What do you think? Should I make it a little bigger for my middle finger or just have it made a little smaller for my ring finger? I apologize for the bite marks! :oops:

I actually like it on your RH ring finger. It looks really beautiful on that finger. But I’m not really a middle finger ringer wearer - they always seem uncomfortable to me.

This won’t answer the question, but I think your ring is just beautiful! On any finger!
This ^
I personally don’t find middle finger rings comfortable but if you do, go for it. It’s got enough presence to work there.
It’s super pretty!! I too love the frilled outline of it.

Thanks everyone! I don't know if wearing it on my middle finger will bother me while working or not, but I do think the width and shape of the ring is fitting for it. I'm not sure I would wear it as an index finger ring though. I've never adorned more than one finger per hand. Besides, if I don't like it, it'll be easy enough to have it made smaller again.

Do you think keeping it with its original thin width band would be more comfortable than a slightly thicker squared euro shank?

I realized I failed to list any specs. This is approximately 1.2 tcw F/G VS Transitional/Early MRB center stones, approximately .32-.33 ct per center stone, 14k, estimated to be from the late 30s to early 40s. I really love the look of these vintage rings, I don't see anyone else in my circles wearing them, and I LOVE that....

I personally would prefer it on the middle finger. I think with wearing a ring on any finger, you need to become acclimated to it, and lots of folks have not yet gotten used to wearing rings on their middle finger.

Personally, I never like to load up all this bling weight on any one finger, and the ring looks too heavy for the ring finger to me. I prefer to wear anything with a more substantial weight on the middle or index fingers.

I love it on any finger. I used to wear middle finger rings. I don't currently have any rings big enough I don't think. My mom used to say "rings on every finger, bells on every toe."
