Plus Size Engagement Rings – UK Buyers Guide

Looking for plus size engagement rings

The first thing to remember is that all of our engagement rings can be made up as plus size engagement rings.

Your exact size may not appear in our drop-down list on product pages. This is due to larger ring sizes being a little heavier. We will always quote based on your required size. There will be a small additional cost, typically around £20-30 more than standard sizes—that’s all.

Please don’t let the absence of a specific UK (or US for that matter) finger size stop you. We carry some of the most incredible engagement ring designs which can all be created for you in a larger finger size. Most can be adjusted for size, which is a complimentary service within 2 sizes.

I would note at this point that our aim is always to remain helpful and objective. Every person varies by shape and size and it is our job to ensure that we accommodate any requirements for finger size. We have decades of experience advising on suitable styles—we can advise on finding a ring that does not appear dwarfed on the hand. This sometimes happens when small diamonds are added to plus size engagement rings.

Considerations for plus size engagement rings

Diamond size. Remember that smaller diamond sizes will look proportionally smaller on a larger circumference band. Diamonds 0.30 carats and below will be dwarfed by a large engagement ring band. We recommend 0.70 carats and above for larger finger sizes.

Ring design. If your budget will not accommodate a larger diamond size, consider a diamond cluster or engagement ring design suited to larger fingers. Our dedicated page makes some suggestions on styles to suit.

Future alteration. We all have great intentions to lose weight and many brides work with dedication ahead of their wedding to look their very best on the big day. Weight loss often results in a loose engagement ring. For this reason, plus size engagement ring styles without diamond shoulders can be more easily re-sized if needed.

Please feel free to browse our full collection of diamond engagement rings and contact us with a plus size if known (US or UK) for a personal quotation.
