What you want to achieve is a comfortable fit. It should be snug enough so it wonʼt fall off, but loose enough so that you feel a slight tug as it slips past your knuckle. Weather temperature also affects the size of your fingers. The optimal time to measure your finger is near the end of the day in warm weather since your finger will be at its largest. Cold fingers are smaller than warm fingers. By taking a few measurements throughout the day you can ensure you get the best fit. If your knuckle is a lot larger than the base of your finger, make sure to select a size between the two so that the ring has enough room to comfortably slide over your knuckle. Please contact our office to receive a complimentary ring sizer kit for measurements or use the size guide below for reference.
Do you prefer a snug or loose fit? This varies between each individual's preference and the type of bracelet you choose. For instance, bangle bracelets have the shape of a continuous circle with no clasps or hinges, so you will have to factor in a little more room if your fingers an knuckles are larger than your wrist circumference. We recommend sticking to a looser fit for larger cuffs and bangles, whereas if you're searching for a more delicate bracelet, go with a tighter fit. When making your decision, remember different materials may have different weights.
On average, the standard chain length is 16 to 20 inches, where the necklace will sit between the base of the throat and the collarbone. We recommend measuring your neckline with measuring tape and adding 2"to 4" for a comfortable fit. The size of necklace or chain you get will depend on style and personal taste as well as matching your attire and occasion. If you're looking for a choker, this should fit snug around your neck with the standard choker size measuring 16". If wearing a pendant or medallion we recommend a slightly longer chain. Women's necklaces can vary widely between 14" to 36" whereas men's chains typically measure between 18" to 24" in length.
