How do I know if that ring fits?

Do you love rings but you’re just not sure of your ring size? Does it put you off buying some beautiful pieces that you’ve spotted on our shop, because you didn’t want to risk having to return it?

The next best thing to trying on a ring in person is to have an accurate idea of your ring size; that is exactly what our little ring sizer can do for you!

How to measure your finger

When measuring your fingers, make sure you do it at a time when you’re not too hot or too cold; our fingers are often a little swollen first thing in the morning and can be a whole size bigger than later on in the day. And if it’s very cold, our fingers are at their smallest. Try checking your size a few times throughout the day, to work out the best size for you.

“A ring is a halo on your finger.” Douglas Coupland

When you have the band on, make sure it’s not too loose but has some wiggle room. Measure the knuckle of the finger you’re checking as well, to make sure that the ring will be able to slide comfortably over it. If there is a big difference – perhaps you have swollen knuckles, as many do – then it may be worth considering the style of ring you go for, as it will have to be a little bit loose, in order to get it over the knuckle.

Ring styles to consider…

A simple band will be easy to wear even if it’s a little loose, so long as it can’t slip off over the knuckle.

A ring with a large stone, however, like our Rock of the Earth rings, probably won’t be comfortable if it’s loose, as the weight of the stone will make it slide around.

If you’re opting for a wide-band ring, they can often feel more snug than rings with standard thin bands, so it may be worth opting for a slightly bigger size (1/2 size up should do the trick) if choosing that style of ring.

We hope these suggestions help you in your quest for your gorgeous ring. And if you’ve any queries or concerns, be sure to reach out, we’re always happy to help!
