HOW TO FIND A RING THAT SUITS YOUR HAND

Arlington & Co. Hatton Garden How to find a ring that suits your hand.

SHORT FINGERS / SMALL HANDS

With small fingers the objective is to elongate the line of the hand. Avoid any band that might be too thick, a thin or tapered band is much more flattering.  Elongated diamonds are best as the shape gives the illusion of length to the hand, resulting in slender-looking fingers… Emerald Cuts, Marquise shaped, pear shaped or oval shaped centres can be amazing in terms of creating a longer more graceful finger line.

LONG FINGERS

When it comes to styles of engagement rings long and slender fingers tend to be the most accommodating, most styles are worn very well. It is important though to keep in mind you don’t have to necessarily go for bold styles, it is better to choose a design that compliments your personal styling – it is worth mentioning Round Brilliant Cut & Princess Cut Diamonds are extremely flattering.

LARGE FINGERS

The key here is to avoid rings that are dainty. A very thin band will make the fingers appear even wider than they actually are. We would recommend trying on a split shank design, perhaps with a diamond set surround, by breaking up and widening the shank this gives you more coverage on the finger itself and is extremely flattering to the eye.

A splash of colour for the more daring lady also works beautifully.

 

 

 

 

HOW TO CLEAN YOUR ENGAGEMENT RING

Arlington & Co. Hatton Garden How to clean your engagement ring.

There is nothing quite like the sparkle of a diamond, however, like everything else they do need cleaning.

As an Arlington & Co. customer you can bring in your ring for a complementary professional clean and refurbishment twice a year.

In-between visits we would recommend putting your engagement ring in an egg cup, adding fairy liquid and hot water from the kettle. Once the water has cooled use a small toothbrush to gently scrub your ring and then rinse. Depending on the residue that has built up this may need to be repeated.
