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 love the "ruffled" look on the edge all the way around, so pretty! I think it would make a great middle finger ring so that gets my vote!

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.

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."

Haven't had a chance to get it sized yet, but I was having either a skinny finger day (in summer??) or I've lost weight and I was able to sample it on my middle finger. I don't know if I don't like it or I'm just not used to a middle finger ring?

Would you prefer it as is, or a middle finger ring?

But what do the doggies say?
They're the ones who will get to see it most! :lol:
