    Size Does Matter: How to Find the Perfect Ring That Fits

    Posted On March 23, 2023

    While some of us may put up with a pair of jeans that feel a little snug around the waist or boots that pinch the heels—though never for long—it’s safe to assume that no one would put up with wearing a ring that doesn’t fit. Indeed, when it comes to jewellery, finding the perfect fit can make all the difference in the world. Whether you’re shopping for yourself or your significant other, it’s important to get the right size to ensure comfort, style, and longevity of the piece. Here are five key points to consider when finding the perfect ring that fits.

    1. Measure Twice, Cut Once: The Importance of Accurate Sizing 

    Remember the adage, measure twice, cut once? The same applies when it comes to finding the perfect ring size. Imagine proposing to your significant other with a ring that is too tight or too loose. Not only would it be uncomfortable to wear, but it could also lead to some awkward conversations. That’s why accurate sizing is so important. Don’t be afraid to ask a jeweller for help or use an online sizing guide to ensure you get perfect fit.

    2. Size Matters: Different Types of Ring Sizing 

    When it comes to finding the perfect ring size, one size does not fit all. There are different types of ring sizing methods, including using a metal sizer, a soft tape measure, or adjustable rings. It’s important to choose the right type of sizing method based on your individual needs. 

    3. The Shape of Things: Consider Finger Shape and Width 

    No two fingers are created equal, and that’s why it’s important to consider finger shape and width when finding the perfect ring size. A ring that fits perfectly on a narrow finger may not fit as well on a wider finger, and vice versa. This can be especially important when choosing a wide band ring. Just imagine trying to take off a ring that is too tight and getting it stuck on your finger!

    4. Timing Is Everything: The Right Time to Get Sized 

    Timing is everything when it comes to finding the perfect ring size. It’s important to measure your finger at the right time of day, when your fingers are at their normal size. For example, fingers can be slightly larger in the morning, so it’s best to measure them in the afternoon or evening. And let’s be honest, you don’t want to end up proposing with a ring that doesn’t fit because you measured your finger after eating a large meal.

    5. Changing With the Times: Adjusting Ring Sizes Over Time 

    Just like relationships, our bodies change over time. Weight gain, weight loss, and ageing can all affect our ring size. That’s why it’s important to periodically check your ring size and have it adjusted if necessary. Plus, this gives you an excuse to treat yourself to a new piece of jewellery! Just make sure to bring your significant other along to avoid any confusion when you come home with a new ring.

    As with any other item we like to wear that demands a precise fit, if we consider each of the points above, we put ourselves in the perfect position to find the perfect-sized ring. Discomfort and uncomfortable moments will fall by the wayside, in their place confidence, style, and a ring that you’re proud to wear everywhere, forever.
