I have just put a deposit down on a transitional cut approximately 1.5 ct diamond in a gypsy setting. It will be a while before I have it, it’s currently a very large size, a U, 10.25. I’m trying to decide where to wear it! It will be a right hand ring, so I was thinking of my index finger or middle finger. Any thoughts on which would look best? I shouldn’t have bought it but I couldn’t resist! It’s from a seller I’ve followed for ages on Instagram, but never bought before. I hope the cut is ok!

If a ring isn't being worn on the ring finger, I prefer the index finger for a ring vs. the middle finger, but of course it is just personal taste.

Thanks for the reply! I actually think I’m leaning this way! I have a few I can wear on my ring finger, but I wanted to take advantage of the large size and wear this one somewhere different!

Looks like a beautiful ring and cut! I prefer wearing large rings on my middle finger but for the thick band seen here and for these specific Gypsy rings, I actually think it would look really bold on the index finger, so that would be my vote :)

Thank you! I think the index would be my largest size so I’m going to have it sized to that, I can always change it later! I bought it on such an impulse, probably because of the layaway option, glad I took the risk now!

I won’t get it for a while yet, but the thumb could be AMAZING! I’m really excited to get it now!

:appl: :appl: :appl: :appl: :appl:
How excitting !
I find my index and thumb are very close in size and with winter summer differences i think you have a very useful ring
you might find the thumb on one hand is the same size as the index on the other
A properly fitted thumb ring is do comfy to wear
you would have the best dressed thumb!
I really love a gypsy setting and your new ring is so uncomplicated the diamond is the star of the show
i absolutly love it !

I only wear a ring on each hand, no more.

On the left, it is either the ring finger or the middle finger, depending on the style and setting.

On the right, I only wear a ring on the middle finger.

As for the OP's lovely ring, I would wear it on my right hand middle finger for certain.

Personal preferences and all that.

Thank you! I wear one on my left and sometimes add one on my right hand, I can see myself wearing this quite a lot though! I figured I may as well get it large, I can always size it after but then I can definitely wear it when I get it!

I have no intention of getting another diamond as a RHR, except for an OEC in lab/MMD about 1ct, and the settings I would consider are Gypsy sets, either as a single stone or a 3-stone with two smaller OECs on each side.

That sounds beautiful! I had said no more diamonds no matter what, but I broke! I even have one quite similar, a bombe ring. I’m on a ban after this! 63B7A1D4-E2A3-49A7-A982-F4C5FC24A3B8.jpeg

I love Bombé ring settings and yours is lovely, thanks for sharing!

I love that gypsy style on your index, pointing finger. Rock it. There’s no wrong or right - just what you like!

First of all, that is a really pretty ring.

Agree that we need to see it on your middle finger. When you get it you have to model it on all the fingers :)

That index finger shot looks super sophisticated tho.

Thank you! I’m definitely going to leave it larger and size down as needed, better safe than sorry!

Gorgeous @weemie! You're in a roll! I think either index or middle will look lovely-go with what feels comfortable for you. For me, it would be my middle finger. I have never found the perfect ring for my index finger...

Eeek, I was supposed to be done after my big spend! When I saw this though I couldn’t leave it behind, I thought it was such a good price! I’m definitely done now.....I swear!

So it has arrived!! It is beautiful, it is exactly the style I love, my only qualm is the colour, it seems quite warm! Especially in comparison to my omc that is a j/k. What do you guys think?
I’ll attach a couple of videos too! 26E72878-329F-4868-AC9A-321D3F3DDA10.jpeg

just beautiful - and I vote for Right hand, middle finger solo, or right hand ring finger stacked with another yellow gold ring.
