Sometimes you gotta be sneaky! One technique is to borrow one of the recipient’s rings (from the correct finger even if it’s the opposite hand) and use the ring measurements from RING SIZE GUIDE to determine its size.
For best results, measure a plain, narrow band. Extra wide band styles tend to fit slightly small. If your borrowed ring has a narrower shank than the one you wish to purchase, you may wish to order a ring a size larger than the normal size worn. Also, large stone rings may cause the shank to lift up when laid on its side on the display, slightly distorting the size measurements.
Please make sure beforehand that the ring you are purchasing can be resized. Rings with specific gemstones or patterns all the way around usually cannot be resized. Most other rings can be resized (see sizing fee) for a fee. Here at Emily Amey Jewelry, we offer one free resize at purchase.
