How to Check if your Ring is the Right Size?

If you’re trying to pull off a loose ring on a stacked ring or tight ones, we can’t warn you enough. But, if your diamond engagement ring is aching your periphery than adorning your fingers, it’s time for a pro check.

  • Ideally, your ring should slide down the finger and come off in two or three seconds, maximum.
  • For men, the knuckle-area can seem stubborn for a few seconds more.

But, understand there is no perfect fit unless you custom design the engagement rings on your own.

Can my ring be resized?

Jewelers can go one or two sizes up or down to your size. That’s the standard. If you have put on weight and want to resize the ring more than that, ask this directly to the jeweler. Often, jewelers have a free resize warranty for life on quality diamond engagement rings.

Which Metal Rings are resizable?

Silver, gold and platinum bands are easy to resize. You don’t have to worry if your engagement ring is made of one of these bands.
