If you have long and slender fingers, congratulations! You have fingers which will suit most ring designs. However, avoid rings with very thick bands as these will make your fingers look too thin as they will overpower your fingers.

If you have short and slender fingers, rings with thin bands are ideal for your fingers. Designs with the ornaments in the middle, as well as wavy band designs will help make your fingers look longer.

If you have long and thick fingers, statement rings would look great for your fingers. Those with bold and fancy designs will complement your hands.

If you have short and thick fingers, rings with designs in the middle are a great choice. Rings which have bands with a V or U shape are recommended for this finger type as these will help balance the overall look of your fingers.
