Ring Size Guide
Have you ever wondered how to choose an engagement ring that’s the right size? We have come up with some invaluable advice for choosing that special ring – even if you’re planning a surprise proposal.
Let’s start with the basics: The engagement ring always sits on the third finger (next to the little finger) of the left hand. If you have a petite partner or they are under 160cm tall, it’s likely that her hands are smaller with slender fingers, so try starting at a size 5¼.
If your potential fianceé is closer to 168cm, chances are she has the average finger size 6.
Finally, if your partner is above average height or build, her weight will be naturally distributed across her whole body, so it might be a good idea to start at around a ring size 7.
If asking out-right isn’t an option, you could ask your partner’s family and friends for help because they may be able to offer their advice. You could even ask her friends to suggest going out to try on rings and have their finger size measured while there.
There are other options like having a ring she already wears on her left-hand ring finger discreetly measured. However, if the ring is wider or narrower than 2mm, the more likely it is that the ring size won’t be entirely accurate.
It’s also worth noting that even if you don’t manage to find the right ring size, you can bring your ring back to us for a complimentary re-size at any time if the engagement ring needs to be resized within two sizes larger or smaller. If the ring needs to be re-sized any more than two sizes larger or smaller, there may be a fee that you must pay as your ring may have to be re-made.
To resize your ring, we make a small incision in the band and extend or tighten it as required. Once that’s completed, the gap is soldered and polished to seamlessly hide any evidence of alterations.
Don’t forget, engagement rings average 2mm in width but the wider the ring, the more likely the ring size won’t be accurate. Since around 40% of rings need resizing, we offer you a complimentary first re-size to make things nice and simple.
