Choosing a ring size can be difficult as your hands can vary by up to a size due to various factors including the weather or even time of day. When a ring fits correctly it should feel comfortable to the wearer, be firm but not uncomfortably snug when hands are warm and not so loose when hands are cold or wet as to create a danger of it slipping over the knuckle without assistance.
The style of ring also contributes to the overall size of the ring, for example a ring with a wide band may need to be a little bigger than a ring with a finer band.
Ideally we recommend you have your finger sized by a professional to ensure you have the most accurate sizing. We understand that this may not always be possible, particularly if the ring is a surprise and recommend that you contact us if you need any further advice on selecting a ring size.
Alternatively you can gauge ring size by measuring the inside diameter of an existing ring. To do this take a ring that is worn on the same finger that the new ring will be worn on and draw around the inside circumference. Next measure the diameter of the circle you have drawn, the jeweller can then use this measurement when crafting the ring or you can convert it to the letter size using the ring sizing chart pictured above.
Remember this is the one time that it is better to estimate slightly larger than smaller as there is nothing worse than receiving a beautiful ring that you can’t try on as it is too small.
What if after all this it doesn't fit?
Don’t worry, we can resize your ring for you. However we request that all resizing be done by one of our master jewellers. Our rings are highly complex in their construction and, therefore, all warranties will be voided if you have your Village Goldsmith ring resized elsewhere.
