Buying jewelry online means you need to know your correct ring size or wrist size prior to purchasing, to make sure you get the right fit. Luckily, it is a fairly easy process using our measuring tips and size charts below.
How to Measure Your Finger for Ring Size
Now, it can get complicated with determining your right ring size, because there are actual sizes based on these measurements, and they vary from country to country.
To measure your finger for a ring, simply take a piece of string (or dental floss) and wrap it around the very base of your ring finger. Do not wrap too snug or too loose. You should be able to turn the string.
Mark where the string or floss first overlaps with a pen. Now lie the string down flat on a table and measure using a ruler. Then refer to the international ring size chart
A Few More Tips When Measuring Your Finger
Knuckles can be an issue. If you have prominent knuckles, you should order a ring in half a size larger, otherwise it might be difficult to get the ring on.
Temperature can also affect the size of your finger, so try measuring a few times throughout the day to see if the measurement changes. Heat can make your hands swell, while the cold can make your finger shrink slightly.
You can also take a ring that you already own, one that you find comfortable to wear, and measure it.
Be sure to check out our large selection of rings, for both men and women. We can always help you ensure you order the correct size as we make all of our rings to order.
We also have several adjustable rings, where size is not an issue. Our 14K gold airplane ring is an ideal example of a band that will easily adjust to any size finger. It also comes as a 925 sterling silver ring.
How to Measure Your Wrist for Bracelet Size
With so many styles of bracelets to choose from, you first have to make sure you get the right size for your wrist, so that you have a comfortable fit. It’s very easy to find out your bracelet size, by simply using a soft flexible measuring tape or a strip of paper.
With your soft measuring tape, wrap the tape around your wrist, just below the wrist bone, then add approximately ½ inch (1.3cm) depending how fitted you want the bracelet to feel (see our tips below).
Otherwise, use your strip of paper in the exact same way, mark the paper with a pen where the end of the bracelet needs to be. Then lay down the paper strip flat on a table top and use your non-flexible tape measure and measure the strip of paper, again adding approximately ½ inch (1.3cm).
Now, locate the length on our wrist size chart to know your bracelet size.
If you are buying a bracelet as a gift for someone, it can be difficult to get their wrist size. So try to see if you can measure their watch or another bracelet they currently wear.
Be sure to check out our large selection of bracelets, for men and women, where we do indicate the extra amount of length we feel you should add for an optimal fit.

But overall, for a snug fit, add 1/4" to 1/2" (.6cm to 1.3cm), for a comfortable fit, add 3/4" to 1" (1.9cm to 2.5cm), and for a loose fit, add 1” to 1 1/4" (2.5cm to 3cm).
