Today we want to talk about the problems people have with being given a finger size by one jeweller, but buying a ring from another and finding it doesn’t fit. It’s a bit like buying shoes – just because a size six fits in one shop/style doesn’t guarantee that a size six will fit from the other shop down the road.
Buying your wedding rings should be straightforward and fun and, quite frankly, we don’t want doubts over sizing to get in the way! We’ve got a whole range of options to help you get past this issue – here’s my advice on how to make the best of our services to ensure you get perfectly fitting wedding rings:
Order a free ring gauge
We send out free ring gauges so people can get an idea of their approximate finger size. These come in the form of a little plastic belt-like strip, which you wrap around the finger and tighten. The ‘belt loop’ will fall at one of the finger size markings.
Ring gauges are sent by 2nd class mail and are usually with you within a few days of filling in the form on our website.
Try on some samples
The ring gauges are really great for getting an idea of finger size, but they are just plastic and therefore malleable. They also might not give you the exact size needed if the ring you’re thinking of buying is much wider, deeper or thinner than the gauge. Wider bands displace more skin, so you’ll often find you need a slightly bigger size.
Our try-before-you-buy service means you can try on up to ten silver rings at home, in a range of sizes based on the result from the ring gauge. The samples are measured by the same tools as our ‘real’ rings so you’ll then be able to order with confidence in the ring fitting and being comfortable.
Samples are also a great way of choosing between different widths, depths and profiles if you haven’t got that far yet in your decision making process – click on the link for more information on the sample service.
Order your ring!
You can now order your wedding, eternity or engagement ring; and have confidence that it will be the right size.
Make use of our resize service – whether it’s after a week, a month or a decade!
Over the years you will be wearing your ring, there’s a chance you might need it to be resized. Whether it’s due to pregnancy, beefing up in the gym, or losing those few extra pounds; finger size can fluctuate just like rest of you. Our resize service is straightforward and inexpensive – we keep the price to you in line with the cost to us.
Not sure if you’ve got enough time to go through all these steps to choose, order and receive your wedding rings? Please don’t hesitate to give us a call for sizing advice.
