Cracking the Code: Finding Your Perfect Ring Size

How to Find Your Perfect Ring Size: Quick and Easy Tips

A ring is not just a piece of jewelry; it's a symbol of what’s important to you, a commitment made to yourself or someone, or a connection. 

If you’ve been around the Rebekah J. world you’ll know that my pieces each help you hold space for your own personal story. If you’re new here… oh boy are you in for a treat, you should definitely read my  Collection Inspirations. 

Whether you're selecting a ring for yourself or a special someone, getting the size right is crucial (but not the end of the world if you get it wrong!). Fear not, finding the perfect ring size doesn't have to be a mystery. Here's your guide to unlocking the secret:

1. Measure, Measure, Measure

Here’s how they work:

  1. Curl the plastic band around with the text facing out, and insert the end of the strip into the opposite side with the large black arrow.

  2. Pull the end through until it looks roughly like your size. 

  3. Slide it on your finger and adjust it to find a snug fit. 

  4. Test to ensure you can get it over your knuckle.

  5. It should slide up and down your finger easily, but be snug enough that it won't come off on it’s own. Give your hand a little shake to test.

  6. If you have a large knuckle, you’ll want to measure both the size of the knuckle and the base of your finger and choose a size that is inbetween them.

  7. The size will be indicated by where the black arrow points, and will measure in ½ and whole sizes.

Print your size guide

Print this PDF SIZE GUIDE while you wait for your sizer to arrive. 

Using both the sizer and the printable PDF will help you get the most accurate size. Here’s how the PDF works.

  1. Print this guide with page scaling set to 100%. You can be sure it’s 100% by measuring a credit card in the template at the bottom!

  2. Place a ring that you already own (or have borrowed, if this is a surprise engagement or a gift) over the circles to the right.

  3. Match the inside of the ring to the circle nearest in size. The measurements shown refer to the inside diameter of the ring.

  4. If the ring falls between two sizes, order the larger size.

  5. Once the ring sizer arrives, double check the indicated size against a ring you have that fits well with the printable guide.

  6. Measure your finger at the end of the day when it's likely to be at its largest due to factors like temperature and activity. 

2. Consider Ring Width and Style

Keep in mind that the width of the ring band can affect the way it fits on your finger. Thicker bands typically require a slightly larger size to ensure a comfortable fit. Additionally if you plan on stacking multiple rings on one finger this may require you to size up in order to be comfortable. 

PROTIP: If you have a ring that you love that’s slightly too large, consider stacking another ring with it to create a more comfortable feel or to keep it from coming off.

3. Account for Temperature and Time of Day

Finger sizes can fluctuate slightly throughout the day due to factors like temperature and hydration levels, or perhaps the margarita and nacho plate you had last night. It's best to measure your finger at room temperature and avoid doing so immediately after strenuous activities that may cause swelling. If you’re cold, your fingers are likely to be smaller, vice versa with heat.

PROTIP: try wearing your ring on the opposite hand during the cold or hot months. If you can wear them on multiple fingers you open up tons of opportunity for wearing!

4. Listen to Your Body

Fingers on your dominant hand may be slightly larger, so if you're between sizes, opt for the larger size for a comfortable fit.

When you're measuring your fingers, keep in mind that the margarita, chips and salsa from last night can create some swelling. 

Measure your fingers every few days to double check the sizes. 

5. Be Prepared for Adjustments

Even with careful measurements, sometimes the ring may not fit perfectly. Don't fret! I am happy to offer the first size adjustment for free. However, it's always best to aim for the closest size possible to minimize the need for resizing. It is possible that some rings are not able to be resized. 

6. Logistical things to know

In the case that you’ve ordered an incorrect size:

  • I am happy to offer exchanges within 10 business days. 

  • I am able to adjust most rings to ½ sizes free of charge. Please leave a note in the comment section when you check out with the size you need and I will happily adjust.
