Know Your Fit: The Ultimate Jewelry Size Guides To Demi-Fine Necklaces, Rings And Bracelets
In the era of online shopping, there are still some of us who feel largely safe and therefore stick to offline shopping; whether it’s buying clothes, shoes, bags or jewelry for that matter. One of the main reasons for this is the issue of, *drumroll*, sizing. Now when it comes to clothes or shoes, it’s still fairly easy to pick the right fit but jewelry? Let’s face it, it’s as tricky and overwhelmingly daunting as it can get. But man, oh man, when you end up getting a luxurious, high-end piece that fits like a glove, the joy it brings is unparalleled!
Ironically, there is such a thing as the perfect jewelry size guide that, for reasons unknown, isn’t as popular as it should be. Necklace length guide, ring and bracelet size guides, they all exist. And ten out of ten times they will help you dodge problems like resizing and exchanges when you’re shopping virtually. Does that sound like the ultimate solution to your problems or what?
No, no, don’t go looking for a size guide anywhere. Just scroll further below to learn how to measure your size correctly before investing in demi-fine items like necklaces, rings and bracelets. Oh and, thank us later!

How many times have you lost a precious ring without taking it off and realized it too late? Yes, we’ve floated in that boat as well.

For those of you who do not know your ring sizes and would most definitely like to stop losing them every now and then, given below are two easy-peasy ring size guides to measure your fit.
The Thread/Paper Method
- Wrap a piece of paper around the finger you want to measure

Note: You can also follow this method using a piece of thread as well.
Measure an Existing Ring
