Finding the perfect ring fit can sometimes be as challenging as finding the perfect ring. Get it right the first time whether you’re treating yourself or buying a gift with our ring sizing guide and the tips below.
It’s important to note that many jewelers offer a wide range of sizes, some of which can add an additional cost depending on the design. For example, jeweler Ara Sav offers his solitaire engagement ring in sizes 3-12 with sizes 7.5 and up costing slightly more depending on the size.
While some makers have a specific range of sizes available for each item, makers will work with you to create exactly what you’re looking for if your size isn’t listed.
Buying a gift for someone?
One of the most important aspects of a ring is fit. Be sure to ask if the ring you are considering can be resized, as some designs cannot be altered once they are finished. Here are some suggestions to help you find the perfect size:
- Secretly borrow a ring that your gift recipient doesn't wear every day. Take it to your local jeweler and ask them to tell you what size the ring is. One hand is usually slightly larger than the other, so it is even better if you can find a ring that he/she wears on the hand you intend to purchase the ring for.
- If you cannot borrow one of their rings, trace the inside and outside circumference of one instead. Then, lay it over one of the rings from our sizing kit to find the perfect fit.
- Ask a friend or family member if they know what size your gift recipient is.
- If you are shopping for a ring together, figuring out the fit becomes easier. To be safe, you should still visit a jeweler to determine their size. The ring should fit snugly over their knuckle, without being uncomfortable.
