Your fingers can fluctuate a lot depending on the weather, your diet, and other factors. Finding the perfect ring size means it fits throughout these daily changes and is always comfortable on your finger.
The best way to describe a good fit is that the ring slides on easily, but has a bit of tension with the knuckle as it goes on. When the ring comes off, there should be a slight resistance so that the ring doesn't easily fall off.
If you have a bigger knuckle and smaller finger, chances are your ring will have some space at the bottom of the finger. In this case, I recommend getting small sizing balls in your ring, which essentially help keep the ring in place instead of spinning around.
If you don't know your ring size, here are a few options: easily accessible plastic ring sizers (which you can get for free on our site) which act like belts for your finger and can give you a good idea of what your ring size is.
If you have a ring that fits well, you can measure the size of the ring using a mandril. You can find mandrils at professional jewelers, but you can also order one online! To use a mandril, you slip the ring onto the mandril, which will slide to the according measurement. The only thing to keep in mind is that if you have sizing balls in your ring, you will not be able to use a mandril to measure the ring size.
Sizing rings are another option that is readily available at the jewelers or for online purchase. These are rings in half sizes for you to try on and find the perfect fit. Keep in mind that skinny band means you should size down, and a thicker band means you should size up! In the case that your finger doesn't fit perfectly with the half sizes, we can create rings in quarter sizes as well.
