Importance of how a ring fits

Finding the right ring size is not just about comfort, it's also about style. A properly fitted ring not only feels comfortable on your finger but also looks visually appealing. A ring that is too tight can cause discomfort, while a loose ring may slip off and risk being lost. Additionally, a well-fitted ring enhances the overall aesthetics of the piece, ensuring it complements your hand and enhances your personal style.

How Should A Ring Fit?

When it comes to the perfect fit, there are a few key factors to consider. Firstly, the ring should slide over your knuckle with relative ease but still fit snugly on the base of your finger. It should not be too tight, causing discomfort, or too loose, risking it slipping off. Ideally, you should be able to twist the ring slightly, but it should not rotate excessively.

Measuring your ring size

To determine your ring size, there are several methods you can use. The most accurate way is to use a ring sizer, a tool specifically designed to measure your finger circumference. You can purchase one here. Alternatively, you can measure an existing ring that fits well using a ring sizing chart. It's important to note that finger sizes can vary throughout the day due to factors like temperature and humidity, so it's best to measure when your hands are at their normal temperature.

Factors to consider when determining ring fit

When determining how a ring should the fit , there are several factors to consider. Firstly, the shape of your finger plays a role. Some individuals have wider knuckles or slimmer bases, which can affect the fit of the ring. Additionally, the width of the ring band should be taken into account. Wider bands typically require a slightly looser fit to accommodate for movement, while narrower bands can fit more snugly. Finally, the style and setting of the ring can also impact the fit. Intricate designs or raised settings may require a slightly larger size to ensure a comfortable fit.

Another factor to consider is a thin band ring. Just as a wide band needs extra room for a comfortable fit, a thin band is most comfortable with a snug fit.

Different ring styles and their impact on fit

Different ring styles can have varying impacts on how the ring fits. For example, our Origin and Relic Rings have a wider band. In order to fit correctly, I recommend customers increase their size by at least half a size. Another factor that can affect fit is stacking rings. Sometimes when stacking multiple rings, you may need a little extra room for a comfortable fit. 

Adjusting ring size: resizing and alternatives

If you find that your ring doesn't fit quite right, there are options to adjust the size. The most common method is ring resizing, which involves either adding or removing metal from the band to achieve the desired fit. However, not all rings can be resized, especially those with intricate designs or gemstone settings. In such cases, alternatives like ring guards or sizing beads can be used to adjust the fit without altering the ring itself. It's always best to consult with a professional jeweler to explore the best options for your specific ring.

Tips for finding the perfect fit

Here are some expert tips to help you find the perfect fit for your ring:

1. Measure your finger size at different times of the day to account for any fluctuations.

2. Consider the width and style of the ring when determining the size. For example, our Origin ring should be sized up 1 size due to the width of the band. 

3. Take into account any potential weight fluctuations or changes in finger size over time.

4. Try on rings in different sizes and styles to see what feels most comfortable and visually appealing.

Common mistakes to avoid when determining ring fit

When determining the fit of a ring, there are a few common mistakes to avoid:

1. Guessing your ring size without proper measurement.

2. Ignoring the impact of different styles and settings on the fit.

3. Failing to consider any potential changes in finger size over time.

4. Settling for a size that is too tight or too loose, compromising comfort and style.

5. Not seeking professional advice when unsure about the appropriate fit.


In conclusion, finding the perfect fit for your ring is essential for both comfort and style. By understanding ring sizes, considering finger shape and style, and exploring resizing options when needed, you can ensure a ring that fits just right. Remember, seeking professional advice and trying on different sizes and styles are key steps in finding the ideal fit for your finger.
