Before purchasing a new ring, it’s important that you have the correct size to avoid any resizing issues in the future. Unfortunately, most of the methods widely used or recommended on the internet do not work. There is too much opportunity for error. While these methods are handy, the most accurate way to discover your ring size is by visiting a professional jeweler like David Alan.

Getting The Correct Ring Size Is Important

When buying a new ring for a loved one, or even yourself, the last thing on your mind is often looking for the correct ring size. Afterall, rings can be resized later, right? 

While rings can often be resized, there are a few instances where this isn’t the case. Enlarging your ring size is more difficult than sizing down, and this process can be time-consuming and costly. What’s more? Making sure you have the correct ring size can prolong your ring’s life and avoid future complications. Wearing the correct ring sizes decreases the chances of your ring slipping off your finger and getting damaged or lost. It also decreases the chances of your ring getting stuck on your finger.

David Alan’s Preferred Ring Sizer Tools

Ring Sizer Gauge

A ring sizer gauge includes metal rings that span a full range of sizes to try on or off, so you can figure out your ring size without any guesswork. Slide the metal rings onto your finger until one fits snuggly, but allows you to slip it off. The number on the metal ring is your size. 

Professional Jeweler

Visiting a professional jeweler, such as David Alan, is by far the most accurate way to determine your ring size. Professional jewelers have the experience and tools required to correctly measure your ring size, saving you any unsureness that comes with DIY methods. Plus, professional jewelers can create custom jewelry tailored for your finger! Custom rings are made to fit your hand perfectly – an experience you can only get from visiting a professional jeweler.  

Ring Sizing Tips

  • Be aware of your knuckle size. If you have large knuckles and slender fingers, you’ll have to consider how easy it is to slide your new ring over your knuckles. If your knuckles are larger in diameter than the rest of your fingers, you may have to size up.
