5 Beautiful Engagement Rings for Small Hands
If you’ve got small mitts, you might find sizing jewelry to be a bit of a challenge. On one hand, pun not intended but inevitable, smaller fingers can really make a more subdued rock pop, which can be a great asset. On the other hand, something too large or too heavy can feel uncomfortable and look visually overwhelming. Landing on the perfect ring for small hands really comes down to finding that perfect medium between big and small. But don’t stress, because we’re here to help with a great selection of pretty and affordable engagement rings!Browse Our Entire Engagement Ring Collection
Tip: Go for a Lightweight Metal – You don’t want a ring so heavy your hand feels weighed down. Some metals are heavier than others, so make sure to keep this in mind while ring shopping. Opt for a sterling silver or titanium ring, as these are among the lighter precious metals used in jewelry.
1. The Alexandria
The Alexandria engagement ring features a 1.5-carat emerald cut stone to help lengthen your fingers. At the same time, it features a slim 2.5-millimeter band with dainty stones for ample sparkle that won’t overwhelm.Shop ‘The Alexandria’ Engagement Ring
