Tips To Make Sure You Find the Correct Ring Size

  • Your fingers change size over the course of the day. If you're very warm, your fingers will be bigger and if you're cold they'll be smaller. Measuring when you're a bit warm will ensure that the ring will fit all the time.
  • Your dominant hand will almost always be slightly bigger. Make sure to measure each finger individually.
  • If your knuckle is bigger than the base of your finger, measure the widest point as well as the base of your finger and pick a size that is in between both.
  • When using a string or paper to measure your finger, don't let it get loose but don't pull it tight. Doing either will skew the size of your ring.
  • For best results, measure 3 or 4 times and compare results. You want to make sure the sizing is accurate.
  • If you have a current ring that fits you can measure the inside diameter and use that to find your ring size.

 

Measuring your Necklace:

 
Getting accurate necklace length is very individual, but there are a few ways to figure out which length will suit you best. Use the instructions below to find your new favorite necklace length.
 
  • Measure against an existing necklace:
Pick up an existing necklace that is indicative of the size you are looking for. Open the clasp, place it on a flat surface and measure it end to end (clasp to clasp) against the measuring tape or scale. Note the length.
 
  • Measure using a measuring tape or string:
Place the flexible tape or a string measure around your neck like a necklace, as shown below, adjust it to the desired length and note down the measurement.
If using a string, mark the starting and end points and place it on a flat surface to measure against the scale.
  • Measure indicatively using the chart below:
The chart below the various necklace length, while the actual length may fall differently on different people – depending on height.
 
Considerations while considering necklace measurement:
  • Your Height:
A longer necklace will appear to sit lower on those with shorter torsos, and slightly higher on those with longer.
  • Neckline
If the piece you are searching for is a necklace to compliment a specific outfit, you'll want to consider the neckline. For instance, you can create a look by pairing a turtleneck with a longer chain, whereas a shorter necklace makes a gorgeous addition to a strapless number.
  • Multi-layer Necklace
When curating a layered necklace look you want to pay close attention to the length of each of your chains as this can help to avoid tangling.
