Ring Size Chart
How do I determine my rings size?
We craft our rings based on the “UK, Europe & Australia” ring sizing standard. There are several options to determine your ring size. – Most jewelers are happy to assist in measuring ring sizes – The simple use of a narrow strip of paper and ruler also does the trick – Use the ring side of a spanner that snugly fit your finger, this will be your ring inner diameter
