Buying a wedding ring could be one of the most important purchases of your life. A wedding ring will be your constant reminder of the connection you have with the person you love, therefore the fit should be as comfortable and secure as possible. If you want your ring to fit snugly on your finger, here are some tips on how to find a ring that fits.
It does not matter if you choose to buy a vintage engagement ring or a wedding ring set, these tips work will for anyone who is purchasing a ring for themselves or their future husband or wife.
The best part of buying a wedding ring is that you do not have to worry about surprising your partner. You can go to the jewellery store and get the jeweler to use gauges (sample rings) to measure both of your fingers. Gauges are more accurate than using string or tape to get an accurate ring measurement.
Use Existing Rings
If you or your spouse have a ring that already fits comfortably and securely, you can use that ring to find a wedding ring that fits.
Fingers can sometimes swell and cause an uncomfortable fit. You should only use finger size when the finger is at its widest point.
You do not want a ring that can easily get past the knuckle. It can be lost easily, and that can be quite a problem! You want a ring that can snugly pass the knuckle. It is can be a little loose, but not too much. The best way to do this is to put the ring on your knuckle. If you can turn the ring a little, then it is a good fit. If it turns a lot, you may want to remeasure your hand.
Consult Ring Size Charts
If you are buying your ring on an online jewellery store, you need to consider the ring size charts available on the site. Sizes vary from country to country. The chart usually converts the sizes to your country size measures.
