How to Know When You have the Correct Size?

After following the directions on either our printable finger size chart or our $15 Ring Sizer you’ll have your correct size for any finger you wish to wear Slate & Tell rings. There are a few key things to look for when you’re deciding on which ring size fits you best.

You’ll know you’re wearing the correct ring size if said ring glides on with little effort but feels some friction when removing the ring. It shouldn’t feel too snug but should have just the right amount of room between the finger and ring of choice.

Having some wiggle room between your finger and ring allows for size fluctuation when wearing the ring in different environments, but also the way rings are handcrafted can cause you to need smaller or larger sizes.

Surrounding Environments Can Affect Finger Size

It’s important to know that temperature is the main reason why your fingers fluctuate in size. If you’re shopping for rings while your fingers are cold or hot they will expand and shrink causing sizing to be off at times. A cold hand will appear less swollen, while a warm hand may swell up. Taking your daily environment into consideration will help you determine the best ring size for you.

Different style Rings can Affect Ring Sizing

The way a ring is designed and handcrafted also plays a role in ring sizing. This is because a wide-band ring provides more finger coverage and requires room for your finger to breathe. Sizing up a quarter or half size will provide enough wiggle room that each wide-band ring requires.

Five Birthstone Mothers Ring

Our five birthstone mothers’ ring is a perfect example of a wide-set ring with lots of finger coverage. This birthstone ring is a great gift for your mother or grandmother and holds sentimental value for all her children or grandchildren. We recommend using our printable guide so you can easily get your loved one’s ring size to shower them with our beautiful jewelry designs.

Recently stacking rings has been a big trend in the accessory department and allows people to express their personality through different styles. Slate & Tell is known for our personalized ring stacks, however, there is one thing to know if you plan on making a ring stack. That’s when you pair multiple rings together to create more surface coverage. Doing this requires more space between the ring and the finger it occupies, just like any wide-set ring would.

Personalized Ring Stack

For an example of a larger ring stack that may require a quarter to half ring size larger check out our endless love personalized ring stack. This stack includes 5 stacking rings that each have a unique, but similar style to them. It’s important to keep ring designs in mind while shopping to best gauge which ring size is your correct fit.
