Jewellery Sizing

Ring Sizing

Ring sizing can be a tricky thing to get right, so I would always recommend going to a jeweller to get your finger sized properly.  Most high street jewellers will also offer this service for free.  There are lots of online methods for measuring your finger, but they are never accurate and as resizing can be difficult and costly, as not all designs can be adjusted, it is best to get it right first time around.

I appreciate how difficult if can be buying a ring on-line.
I will gladly resize a ring bought from me (subject to postal charges).  However, be advised, not all designs are suitable for resizing.  Please contact me to discuss resizing.

To avoid having to resize a ring, try using one of the ring sizers available here.

The following should also be considered when sizing your finger.

  • Your size may vary by up to a size from summer to winter.
  • Any ring with a wide band width will require to be slightly larger than your normal size (up to one or two sizes) so keep this in mind when choosing your ring.  This includes stacking rings!

Finger size changes depending on the time of day and the weather. For best results measure your finger size:

      1.  At the end of the day and when your fingers are warm (fingers are smaller in the early morning and when cold.)
      2.  Measure finger size 3 to 4 times to eliminate an erroneous reading.

Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle.

Avoid using string or paper to measure ring size as these materials can stretch or twist, yielding an inaccurate measurement.

Ordering a special ring size

If you would like to order a ring size that isn’t listed on this website, please contact me.  I will then be able to confirm whether I can make a ring in your requested size.

Rings made in a size outside of my standard size range will be non-exchangeable and non-refundable.

Choosing Your Ideal Necklace Length

Everyone has both physical and aesthetic preferences on necklace length.  A good way to measure for necklace size is to take a measuring tape or piece of string (or ribbon) and wrap it around the base of your neck, then mark the spot where it meets.  Depending on what you are buying and what length you prefer, try to make it comfortable, imagining how the real jewellery will fit.  If you have used a string or ribbon to measure, then lay it against a ruler or measuring tape to determine the size you should order.

Choosing Your Bangle Size

There are three size options for  bangles (small, medium and large), because I feel it is important to have the right fit.  Remember that bangles need to fit over your hand without opening them, as they do not have a clasp. The best way to determine the size that you require is to measure the inside diameter of a bangle that fits you well.

Small = 60mm / 6cm

Medium = 65mm / 6.5cm

Large = 70mm / 7cm

Please refer to the product description for exact measurements.

Cuff & Torque Bangles

To measure which size you need, use a tape measure to measure loosely around your wrist and then subtract 2.5cm for the gap. If you would like the cuff to be quite loose, add 1 or 2cm.  The cuff can always be tightened slightly by squeezing the two ends together.

Cuff bracelets are slightly adjustable, so an exact fit is not as important as it would be for a ring. Individual people have different preferences on how they want a bracelet to fit.

Classic Bracelet Sizing

Buying bracelets is much easier if you know your correct wrist size.  When you order a bracelet you want to fit it properly!
Most women feel comfortable wearing a bracelet that is 18 – 19cm (7 to 7½ inches) in length, which is the standard size.  The bracelet will hang between your hand and wrist bone, which is the most attractive position.

These simple instructions tell you how to measure your wrist properly so you can be sure your bracelets will fit right.
When measuring for bracelets, measure tightly where your wrist is broadest.
Measure your wrist with a flexible, soft tape measure just below the wrist bone (below the wrist bone is the area between your hand and the wrist bone).  This is your actual wrist size, not your bracelet size.  Add approx. 0.5cm to 2.5cm  (1.25cm is average) to your actual wrist size, this is your approximate bracelet size. The more you add to your wrist size the more your bracelet will hang lower to your hand.
*Tip: If you don’t have a tape measure handy, use a strip of paper or thin string, and mark it where it overlaps on your wrist.  Then lay the strip flat to measure up to the mark using any ruler.
