RING SIZE GUIDE
This guide will help you to order the correct ring size.
If you are unsure of your ring size let me know and I can send you a set of finger sizers or you can go to a local jeweller for a fitting.
There are several factors that affect ring size besides actual finger measurement.
First, the difference in size between finger joints and the place where a ring sits affects the choice of ring size. Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle.
Second, fingers change size in response to body chemistry and temperature, sometimes by several sizes. For best results measure your finger size at the end of the day when your fingers are warm (fingers are smaller in the early morning and when cold). Measure your size several times to estimate an average reading.
Third, your ring size is also affected by the specific ring. Wider rings and those in which a stone or setting projects toward the finger will require larger sizes than thinner rings, even for the same finger.
Avoid using string or paper to measure your ring size as these materials can stretch or twist, yielding an inaccurate measurement.
