How tightly should your ring fit?

There are a lot of myths out there when it comes to how tightly a ring should fit. And for good reason: we believe that (just like the love in our life) there’s one perfect fit.

But unfortunately, our finger is more fickle than that. It expands and decreases in sizes, even throughout one day. It also changes based on weather, diet and water retention.

The idea is to find a good fit. So how do you find it?

According to Wedding Bee: 

To help you find that almost perfect fit, you should work with an experienced jeweler to get your finger professionally sized. And I’m not talking about going to a jewelry store that has some plastic sizer and an inexperienced sales associate. When you’re going to be wearing something as meaningful and expensive as a wedding band, you want to make sure you do it right.

We wholeheartedly agree: when you are fitted for a ring, the jeweler should utilize various methods and tools to help you find the most most comfortable fit.

Another sizing tip: the best time of the time to have your finger sized is between lunch and dinner (since this is when your finger is at its largest size).

Remember: the fit of a ring is very personal opinion. While there are methods to identify a match for you, ultimately the choice is based on how it feels. Just like the love of your life, only you know the real perfect fit.

A fit for life.
