Measurement Guide

RINGS

 

Getting measurements for your ring right can be a little annoying. The best advice is to go to a local jeweller and get measured for your exact size.

Printable measuring guides can be unreliable, so I have two suggestions below for methods that work best.

Alternatively, you can purchase a ring sizer by clicking on the image below.

METHOD 1 - EXISTING RING

  1. Find a ring whose size and fit you like.

  2. Find a flat ruler or measuring tape.

  3. Place the ring on the ruler starting at 1 and measure the inside diameter.

  4. Pick the closest measurement on the ring size chart to find your ring size.
     

METHOD 2 - STRING OR PAPER

  1. Wrap string (non stretchy) or paper around the base of your finger.

  2. Mark the point where the ends meet with a pen.

  3. Measure the string or paper with a ruler (mm).

  4. Pick the closest measurement on the ring size chart to find your ring size.

    NOTE: Please ensure accuracy with multiple tries. Try measuring your finger three to four different times because the size actually fluctuates depending on temperature: It can be smaller the colder you are and larger if your fingers are swollen or you are warmer.
    Consider your knuckle. If you know your knuckle is on the larger side, you should order half a size bigger than what your finger alone indicates, otherwise you won’t be able slide a ring into the right place. Or take two separate measurements, one at the base and one at the knuckle and choose a size in between. 
    If you are between sizes, order a larger size.

NECKLACES

 

All necklaces are measured in centimetres.

The most accurate way to measure the correct size is to use length of string. Measure it to the correct length around your neck. This picture will help you see where the length will approximately fit. This obviously varies a for each individual. If you would like a necklace at a specific length - please let me know.
