A ring should fit comfortably so that, after initially putting it on, you no longer feel it. It should not be tight or restrictive, nor should it be too loose for risk of it falling off.

When sizing a ring, it is worth considering several factors:

Thickness: A thicker ring will displace more of your finger, creating a tighter fit than a thinner band. If you are certain of the size in a thinner band, we’d suggest going half a size or possibly a size bigger

Temperature: In warmer weather our fingers swell, in the cold they contract. A ring that fits in winter might feel a little more snug on holiday in a hotter climate. When trying on a ring consider the temperature of your hands. We recommend trying a ring for size when your hands are at a moderate temperature.

Other rings: Like a thicker band, wearing additional rings on the same finger will create a tighter. We often suggest wearing a slightly bigger ring closer to your hand and a tighter one further away. This will hold both in place and retain comfort.

Finger shape: A wider knuckle might require a tighter ring which is slightly difficult to push over the knuckle, but fits nicely at the base of your finger.

If in doubt, visit one of our stores where a colleague will be able to size your finger exactly.

 

Necklaces

The length is a key factor in determining style. Different lengths will be appropriate for different people and places of wear.

Standard lengths are listed below, although if longer or shorter chains are needed, please ask a colleague. We can often provide chain extensions if needed, please enquire.

Lies loosely around the neck, can be known as a choker, chain, locket or strand.

Hangs over the collarbone, called a princess.

Sits just below the collarbone, known as a matinee.

Hangs above the bust, still a matinee.

24

60

Sits at the centre of the bust, still a matinee.

28 - 38

70 - 95

Hangs just below the bust, known as an opera, lariat or rope.

40+

100+

Extends past the navel, still known as an opera, lariat or rope.

 

Thickness can also determine the style of a necklace, as well as the presence and size of a pendant. These are both things to consider when choosing the perfect necklace. A thicker chain will tend to be heavier and may not be suited for a very long necklace, and a low-hanging pedant will lengthen the appearance of the necklace.

 

Bracelets

We offer bracelets in various styles including chains and bangles, some are adjustable or features different fastenings. For this reason, it is difficult to provide a set size guide for bracelets, however we have provided the following chart as an approximate guide for how a bracelet should fit.

Use a tape measure to take a tight wrist measurement, then use the chart below to find the recommended bracelet size. For example, if your wrist measures 17 cm then a 19 cm bracelet will provide a comfortable fit*.

Earrings
