Chubby, plus size, thick fingers - whatever you call it - we get it: the range of ring designs out there for chubby fingers are limited. Even though fashion brands have gone crazy about all-inclusive clothing lines, apparently they forgot that fingers are equally unique in their curves and shapes. (think ‘all-size’ rings. Feel the cringe?)
All this sounds crazy to us because we believe thicker fingers actually have more room to play with. The key here is to play up your finger coverage, and find that balanced proportion between your finger and the ring.
Gone are the days when being ‘chubby’ means you can only ‘resize’ from current designs. At Gardens of the Sun, we’ve stocked some of the most gorgeous gemstones to fit fingers US size 9 and up. Need help with sizing?
So for those who tick the plus size box, we got your fingers covered.
Spring Ring Set
Think chubby fingers can’t rock statement rings? You’re so wrong, baby. Truth is - colorful and asymmetrical designs can balance the size and thickness of your finger. These playful geo-shape stones will pop out without being too flashy.
Watermelon Tourmaline Ring
Chubby gals should avoid rounder shapes - does this sound familiar? But not this watermelon tourmaline ring! With its organic round shapes, you’ll still get the feminine feel of a round shape, without looking too heavy and bulky. This ring shows the sweet balance of minimal and colorful.
Marquise Citrine Ring
An eye-like marquise cut brings gaze to its shape. It’s another reliable gemstone cut to make your finger look longer. Set in an open bezel setting, this citrine sits slightly higher than your finger, giving more dimension to the whole look.
Dendritic Agate Ring
Think sexy, feminine, and slimming - that’s the power of pear-shaped dendritic! Pear-shaped is an ideal choice for any finger size because of its slimming effect. With two agate sidekicks on its side, this ring covers a lot of skin and packs a lot of punch.
Hexagon Tourmaline Ring
A lover of dainty rings? Yes, we’re about to break the rule here - this hexagon tourmaline ring is an exception. Even though it doesn’t have big coverage, its pointy sides help narrow down the look of your finger. It also helps that the angle points upwards, so you don’t get a flat line crossing the finger.
Dainty Zircon Ring
If you’re a lover of dainty trinkets, this zircon ring is for you. Even though chubby fingers should avoid small gemstones and thin bands because they make your finger appear bigger, you can solve this by going up a fraction of your normal ring size. This way, you’ll have no more of that ghastly muffin top (not only that it looks bad, it stops blood flow). If you’re looking to build finger coverage, stack two or three and…problem solved!
Borneo Sapphire Ring with Prongs
Another statement ring option: silky candy sapphires! These muted-color gems scream ‘adorbs’ but it’s a seriously tough gem and perfect for everyday wear. The prong setting keeps all attention to your sapphire, and away from your finger.
The mysterious opal reigns again, even in petite size! Set in a silver band, the base color of the opal blends into the band, leaving little but its fire to stand out. Without any prominent colors but its lightplay, any opal size looks great on any finger size (okay, opal is always an exception!).
Emerald and Peridot Ring
Like two sisters, these emerald and peridot ring are besties even with their differences. We love this ring because they’re everything about opposites. While both are green, the emerald is cooler and the peridot is warmer; one is round, the other is marquise; one is bezel-set, the other is set in basket prong. It’s the perfect asymmetrical ring - absolutely fab on a chubby finger.
Keshi Pearl Ring
These cool-toned rings are great for chubby fingers as they’re mostly set vertically. With a gemstone standing up against your finger (instead of laying down), it’ll give an impression of a more slender finger.
A wider band is always a safe bet for size 12 and up. And no - it doesn’t mean a wedding band. Wider bands give great finger coverage and allows textures to make a show, giving the impression of a smaller finger. It also makes a great addition to your ring-stacking collection and pairs nicely with a daintier ring stacked on top.
Arizona Peridot Ring Hidden Gems
Got your favorite gemstone? Our hidden gem (not hidden sources, I mean; these are all ethical, traceable gemstones) is the way to go. Rough and rugged, this ring is the opposite of ‘flat’, giving more form and dimension to the finger - a bit of flare; a lot of va-va-voom!
Now that you know how having a larger ring size doesn’t have to limit the choices for your next ring stack, start building your new favorite set of rings.
