How to choose the right ring size?
The ring is not just a stylish accessory, but a thing that determines the comfort of everyday activities.
For example, rings with massive inserts can interfere with typing on the keyboard. If, in addition to this, the size is chosen incorrectly, then the accessory will dangle on your finger and cause discomfort. In this case, the only thing that remains is to put the decoration on the shelf.
The choice of jewelry is a delicate matter. Buy jewelry – this is half the battle, but the ability to pick it up – the whole art!
In this article, “Jewelry Card” will share tips that will help to correctly determine the size of the ring at home.
Why is it so important to choose the right ring size?
As if outwardly did not like the ring, it does not bring pleasure if it squeezes the finger. An irritant is constantly on the arm.
Important and medical aspect. Too tight ring clamps veins, as a result – the blood supply to the finger is broken. In the future, because of this, there may be problems with the joints.
If suddenly, on the contrary, the ring was too narrow, then visit the jewelry workshop. The master with the help of special tools can increase the size of the ring (“roll it out”), but this solution is not always suitable:
sometimes the rings have a decorative element in the form of a path of stones. If we use the “rolling” technique, then the attachment points for the stones will expand and minerals will fall out;
rings with fancy and intricate elements will lose their original appearance after increasing the size. And not every jeweler will undertake such a procedure;
You can always cut off part of the ring and connect the cut point with a piece of metal. The jeweler must be experienced and polish the jewelery with high precision, otherwise the inserted section will stand out in the bezel of the jewelery;
On the Internet, users post texts and videos on how to independently increase the ring. Do not immediately repeat them. After all, experienced jewelers are also mistaken;
even in the most famous workshops, count on the maximum increase in the ring by only 1.5-2 sizes.
What you need to know to choose the right ring size?
There are several criteria that will help not to be mistaken with the choice of such a wonderful thing as a golden ring:
features of the structure of the fingers (an important role is played by the thickness, length and presence of noticeable prominent phalanges on the fingers);
ring width. This characteristic is closely related to the length of the fingers. On the elongated graceful fingers inappropriately looks narrow ring.
Selection of rings with fitting in the store
During the day, the fingers may swell. This is a normal physiological process, so you should not try on jewelry immediately after waking up.
Finger thickness can also change after active physical exertion. Therefore, there are some nuances that should be considered when choosing a ring:
Decide which finger is used for decoration. Buy a ring for both hands is not always possible. The peculiarity of the human body is that the fingers of the dominant hand (left-handed and right-handed, respectively) are larger. In some cases, the difference is one and a half size;
It is necessary to take into account the fitting conditions. For example, it is cold outside, and you enter a warm room. This is sure to affect the condition of the hands. Another situation is possible. It is hot in the street, and you have entered the room where the air-conditioner works. It is necessary to spend some time in a room with altered temperature conditions;
Always achieve acceptable fixation of the ring on your hand. In such a case, the ring will be in a static position. Otherwise, a situation will arise in which the ring will constantly collapse. The insert can prick a finger, cling to clothes. This will cause discomfort;
Thin rings are not as whimsical as thick rings or, for example, wide hoops. Always add half the size to your finger thickness, otherwise the ring will be difficult to remove from your hand.
How to determine the size of the ring yourself?
In the shops there are special devices for measuring the thickness of the fingers – “fingers”. This device allows you to set the size of a finger in minutes.
If you choose a ring at home or order via the Internet, then you can use a simple calculation procedure.
Imagine you could not order a ring of the right size. The very first problem that may arise is emotional.
The ring has an extremely cute simple design, you feel comfortable with it. But because of the wrong size, you still have to send it back, which will certainly spoil the mood.
Suppose you still liked the ring, but its design is not simple, but arty, with an abundance of inserts. Or this ring is an eccentric form. You can understand how comfortable it is sitting, only with an ornament that is the right size.
