Here's a quicky camera phone photo of the ring in question. One carat TDW band with 10, 10 point diamonds. They are very lively and sparkly and I had planned to have them reset this year into another ring but it looks like that may not happen after all. Nobody knows how to work with Platinum 500 so sizing is not possible. So, what do you think? Honest and respectful opinions welcome 8)

I like it :))
My personal preference is one ring per hand, so I would wear only the pinky ring as a RHR and then my wedding set on the other hand.

I am not into pinky rings on guys or girls, but it doesn't matter what I like!!! It's about what YOU like! :bigsmile:

Did you know that most people's pinky fingers are the same size as their toes? Could you wear it as a toe ring? That's what I would do (but I am also currently shopping for toe rings!).

I love a diamond pinky ring( much more than a double ear piercing). Oprah used to wear one and it caught the light beautifully.

I tried this on but couldn't do it. I've always seen toe rings as silly things. What if you stub a toe and it swells up like a balloon?

One of our Private Client specialists wears multiple earrings and multiple rings per hand. It looks so unprofessional especially at that level :nono:

Size 3/4 ring?! :-o

I think a band as a pinky ring doesn't look very good. The one's I like are little hearts.

Sadly pinky rings drive me crazy - I find them very uncomfortable.

I'm not loving it as a pinky ring. Sorry. If it can't be resized, how 'bout wearing it on a chain around your neck?

I don't much care for that look, but I like the idea of wearing it on a chain around your neck until you can have the stones reset. It looks like a beautiful ring, so I hate to think of it sitting alone in a jewelry chest.

Unless it is a piece given to you by a close relative, I'd just sell it as is. Not into pinky rings myself, but like the toe ring idea for the summer.

I was given a pinky ring by a very special friend, so now I own a pinky ring. But I have to say, they take some getting used to. When I do wear it, I find myself banging my hand into literally everything! I put a few dings it the first time I wore it. It's not a natural feeling thing for me, but that's just me.

I think I might have found an in budget setting that is the style I'm looking for - so it may not be a pinky ring for much longer :bigsmile:

Cool!

Otherwise I vote for wearing it around your neck
