Everything you need to know when shopping for rings


3 minute read

Before purchasing a ring online, you will have to know your ring size.

While measuring your finger is not a perfect science, it is something you'll get a feel for with time and practice. Plus, chances are if you're off by a little bit your ring may still fit since our fingers fluctuate naturally anyway.

I've written out everything you need to know when shopping for rings to find the most accurate ring size.

Full disclosure, to get the most accurate measurement, it is always best to get your finger sized at a professional jeweler which you can do for free at any local jewelry store.

Alternatively, if you don't have one already, I offer a complimentary ring sizer that you can grab by clicking here!

Important things to note when using sizing your finger:

  • When you are measuring your ring size factors like diet, temperature, and weather can cause your finger size to fluctuate. You may want to measure multiple times throughout the day or over the course of a few days and make note of your averages to get the best fit. 
  • Once you have sized your fingers and are ready to shop, keep in mind that the wider the ring band, the tighter it will fit. So if you are shopping for a ring that is wider than the ring sizer you've used, you may want to size up 1/4 to 1/2 size depending on how much wider the ring band is.
  • On the other hand, the skinnier the ring band, the looser it will fit. So, if you are shopping for a ring that is thinner than the ring sizer you've used, you may want to size down 1/4 to 1/2 size depending on how much thinner the ring band is. 
  • Personal preference for how you like rings to fit it also important to consider. For example, my pointer fingers are really sensitive to rings that are too tight so I would definitely size up for thicker rings for those fingers. But, my middle and ring fingers have knobbier knuckles and skinnier bases where the ring sits so as long as I can get a ring past my knuckles, I don't mind a snug fit. So I may not choose to size up when choosing a thicker ring for those fingers. I would however size down for skinnier bands for my middle and ring fingers as I don't mind a tighter fit on those fingers.

For peace of mind, when you buy a ring from me and it doesn't fit the way you wanted it to, I do accept exchanges and returns within 14 days of receiving so don't let it stress you out too much. Click to view the full Shop Policies here.

Do your best when sizing your fingers and don't hesitate to reach out with questions.
