Finding The Most Comfortable Fit
Picture this.... You’re shopping online and you come across THE PERFECT RING. You go to select your size but you hesitate. You know your ring finger is a 6 but you want to wear this ring on your pointer finger. How do you know what size your finger is? Is there such a thing as the perfect fit? These are all valid questions and we're here to help!
General Rule of Thumb When It Comes to Sizing
When putting a ring on, we suggest that the ring slide over your knuckle fairly easily and sit snugly at the base of your finger. When taking a ring off you should use a bit of force and a little wiggle to comfortably remove the ring from your finger.
Your Ring Size Can Fluctuate
Season-to-season, day-to-day, and minute-to-minute the size of your fingers can change. These size changes can be caused by hormone fluctuations, high humidity of a summer night, a few too many margaritas, a freezing cold winter day, a late night, the reasons are endless!
When sizing your finger, if time permits, we recommend measuring a few different times on different days before determining the most comfortable fit for you.
Different Ring Shapes & Widths
Not all rings are created equal! Wide rings, take up more surface area on the finger and might feel a little bit tighter, while narrow rings are more forgiving and would allow you to get away with a half a size smaller.
We are always happy to size your finger in our store. We have a talented team of jewelers who can help you find the most comfortable fit for you.
Can’t make it in the store or trying to buy a ring online? You can measure your ring size using either string or even floss. Take your chose measurement tool and wrap it around the base of your finger, marking where the string or floss first overlaps with a pen. Next, line that up with a ruler and take down its length in millimeters.
With standard ring sizes, every half-size matches up to a 0.4-millimeter increment, starting with size 3 equaling 14 mm, size 3.5 equal to 14.4 mm, size 4 equal to 14.8 mm, and so on. Common ring sizes for women are 6 (16.5 mm), 6.5 (16.9 mm), and 7 (17.3 mm). For men, the most common sizes are 10 (19.8 mm), 10.5 (20.2 mm), and 11 (20.6 mm).
