NEED HELP FINDING THE CORRECT RING SIZE?
RING SIZING AND ORDERING INFORMATION
If the ring you want needs to be resized, Gemcitygems offers FREE limited ring resizing with your purchase. FREE Resizings are available for up to two standard ring sizes, but in some cases exceptions can be made depending on the piece. Please reach out to us prior to purchase if you are needing a ring resized so that we can ensure that the piece can be resized to the size that you need and answer any additional questions you may have.
We pay a master goldsmith and GIA Graduate Gemologist to do all of our resizing work, and you cannot tell when a ring has been resized. Timeline for resizing varies due to the Goldsmiths schedule, but typically take between 7-10 business days to be completed.
HOW TO DETERMINE YOUR RING SIZE
Finding the right ring size is not as simple as taking a measurement. Things to consider that may impact your decision are; an active lifestyle, a warmer climate, aerobic activity, and even pregnancy. Also, as we age, our knuckles may tend to swell slightly, and for men, wider bands and rings tend to run smaller. After considering these factors, you may decide to order a half size larger to insure a proper fit.
PRINTABLE RING SIZE CHART
If you are unsure of what size you are needing, we offer an easy-to-use, printable ring size chart for your convenience. Note: Before printing, make sure the ‘Page Scaling’ is set to ‘NONE’ in your printer settings window.
TIPS FOR PROPER RING MEASUREMENT
- Verify that the printed Ring Sizer Guide matches a ruler.
- After cutting out the ring sizer, pull it tight for an accurate size. You may need someone to help you to hold and read the measurement.
- Measure your finger later in the day, when it is at its largest. Avoid measuring when your fingers are cold.
- If you are using an existing ring and using the circle guides, make sure you measure using the inside diameter.
SIZING A RING FOR SOMEONE ELSE
Buying a ring for someone else? If possible, try and borrow a ring they currently wear for the finger they’ll wear it on and use our Printable Ring Size Chart and measure the inside diameter. Or, you can use a carrot as a substitute for the wearer’s finger. Simply slip the borrowed ring over the carrot, don’t force it, and mark the spot where the ring stops, then wrap the Printable Ring Size Chart around the carrot ‘above’ the marked spot for the approximate ring size.
Resizing can only be done on certain rings. Some rings and bands cannot be resized due to their unique metal composition. For example, bands with very hard metal like titanium cannot be altered and must be cast by the manufacturer. Platinum bands can only be sized a few sizes above or below the original casting size. Eternity bands are normally manufactured only in the standard sizes in order to maintain the ring’s strength and design integrity. Rings with intricate carving or ones with gemstones along the shank cannot be resized too many sizes without adversely affecting their delicate design.
