Know Your Size

Ordering jewelry online can get a little tricky if you’re not exactly sure of what size you want or need.  Most jewelry is available in a variety of sizes.  Rings can be sized to what you need, bracelets can be cut to your specific wrist sizes, and most necklaces are available with whichever chain length you prefer.  So, without seeing it in person, how do you know the right size?  Let me help!

Let’s start with rings.  So its been a while and you’re not sure of your current ring size.  No problem!  To start, you will need a measuring tape.  If you don’t have that available, you can use a non elastic string with a flat ruler.  Now take your measuring tape or string and wrap it around the finger you want to measure.

Now, mark down where your measuring tape or string overlaps and use this chart to check for your proper size.

Measurement               Size

1.8″ (46.5mm)                4

1.9″ (49mm)                   5

2″ (51.5mm)                   6

2.1″ (54mm)                   7

2.2″ (56.6mm)              8

2.3″ (59.1mm)               9

2.4″ (61.6mm)              10

2.6″ (64.1mm)              11

Okay, now that we know how to measure our ring size, lets move on to bracelets.  You will be measuring your wrist just the way you measured your finger.  Wrap the measuring tape or non elastic string (with straight ruler on the side) around your wrist and record the size in inches.

Bracelets don’t come in set sizes so you can use your measurement to get the size you want.  You can request that a bracelet you are purchasing be cut down to your exact size or slightly larger, if you so choose.

So now that we know what size ring and bracelet we will need, lets check what size necklace or chain works best.  Chains are usually available from 14 inch to 30 inch or even beyond.  But without seeing the chain in person, it is hard to know where it will lay.

Pictured here is a variety of chain lengths so you can see where they lay and also compare them to one another.  From shortest to longest the length of each chain is: 20 inches, 22 inches, 24 inches, and 30 inches.  If you are interested in a length that is not pictured above, use this as a guide to estimate where other sizes may lie.

Finally, you have all your measurements and proper sizes. Now its time to head over to Shyne Jewelers and treat yourself, you deserve it!
