In order to determine your ring size, we ask you to use the two different ways shown in the document. You may use just one, but we recommend using both in order to cross check the results and minimize the possibility of making a mistake.
First, using the sizer strip you have cut out, place it around the finger on which you wish to wear your ring. Make the numbers face outward and pull the sizer through the slit over the largest part of your finger (possibly your knuckle).
Be sure to pull it tightly for a more accurate sizing. Look at the slit and write down the number that lines up with it.
Second, use your own ring that fits the finger on which you wish to wear your new ring. Place the ring onto the circular sizers. Whichever circle your ring fits most closely with will be your ring size. If it falls in between sizes, go with the larger one.
The number results for both should match. If they do not, we suggest that you use the larger one to insure that you will be able to wear it when you receive it. Please note that your fingers will always measure
JC Sipe Jewelers offers in-house ring sizing. Most precious metal rings, (platinum, 14kt./18kt. gold, sterling silver) can be sized. Some two tone and mixed metal wedding rings must be remade to change the size due to their construction. Other wedding bands, in particular the contemporary metal rings (tungsten carbide, cobalt chrome, stainless steel) cannot be sized. Luckily, our wedding band manufacturers offer free sizing replacements.
Some channel set diamond engagement rings and gemstone fashion rings are a real challenge to size. Most are sizeable but may not remain round due to the setting style. Often, since our fingers are oval rather than round, this does not present a problem when being worn, in fact may keep the rings from turning. Sizing cleats may also be a solution for a ring which maynot successfully size by conventional means.
Remember that most white gold rings are finished with a rhodium plating to make them bright white. When sizing a white gold ring the plating must be reapplied. If your ring has not had the flashing refreshed in the last few years, you’ll be amazed with the results. The ring’s appearance will be like brand new.
