JEWELLERY SIZING

NECKLACE LENGTHS

I offer 3 different lengths of necklace chains, with 16 inches being the most popular and that all of my necklaces come with as default.

 

The 16″ NECKLACE - The most popular size 
A 16 inch necklace falls perfectly around the base of the neck. Most necklaces come in 16 inch length and will complement almost any neckline. For petite frames, a 16 inch necklace might hang slightly lower down to the collarbones. For plus size ladies, this necklace might feel like more like a choker style necklace.

The 18″ NECKLACE
An 18 inch necklace is another popular choice among women and will fall below the throat at the collarbone. This length is popular for adding pendants, and the piece will hang over a t-shirt.

The 20″ NECKLACE
A 20 inch necklace will fall a few inches below the collarbone to will allow a little more breathing room. This is a good length if you have a low, plunging neckline or if you would like to wear it over a high neck top.

HOW TO MEASURE YOUR RING SIZE

HOW YOUR RING SHOULD FIT

When shopping for rings online, it's essential that you know your accurate ring size. This will ensure the ring you love fits like a charm. Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it won't spin around or fall off but loose enough to slide over your knuckle without being too tight or getting stuck.

 

HOW TO FIND YOUR SIZE

We measure our ring sizes in the standard UK sizing system (Wheatsheaf) and each of our rings is 'made to order', to suit your size. 

Depending on your body temperature and time of day your ring size can change in a short space of time. For best results measure your fingers at the end of the day and when your fingers are at a normal temperature, fingers are smaller early on a morning and when cold and can be larger when you are warm. 

The most accurate and recommended way of finding your true ring size is to use a measuring set at your local jeweller, which is a bundle of rings made to exact ring sizes.  However,  you can purchase an adjustable Ring-Sizing Gauge from the shop which gives an estimated ring size, very close to the "Wheatsheaf" measurements.

Please ensure that you are confident with your size choice as I cannot be responsible if the wrong size is ordered. However, I appreciate it can be tricky to order a ring online without trying it on and I do offer a resizing service (although this is not available on certain styles of ring) and there will be a small fee to cover this.

CHOOSING YOUR BRACELET SIZE

I offer 5 different bracelet sizes, with 18 inches (medium) being the most popular. The easiest way to find your bracelet measurement is using a piece of string, strip of paper or a flexible tape measure, measure the circumference of your wrist by fitting it tightly just above the wrist bone, where you would normally wear the bracelet.

 

If you are using a piece of string or strip of paper, mark your size with a pen or pencil then use a ruler to measure the length. That would be your wrist size. Then to find your bracelet size, just add your wrist size together with the appropriate measurements below, depending on the fit you would like and select the closest size (petite, small, medium, large or x-large). If you are buying a delicate bracelet with a thin chain, we do suggest ordering a snug fit.

CHOOSING YOUR BANGLE SIZE

There are several different easy ways to measure up for your new bangle from home.

 

The first is to take a hand measurement. Bring your fingers together and thumb across the palm as if you were about to put on a bangle (as pictured). Measure your hand with a string or a tape measure around the widest part of your hand. If you have used a piece of string, then use a straight ruler to measure the length. This is your correct bangle measurement.

 

The second method is to measure the inside diameter of a bangle that you already own. Bangle sizes are based off the inside diameter, so for this method, simply take out a ruler and measure from one point directly across to another point within the inside of the bangle. However many centimeters it measures is the size for you.

RE-SIZING SERVICE

We encourage all of our lovely customers to be confident with their size choice as I cannot be responsible if the wrong size is ordered.

However, I appreciate that it can be tricky to purchase jewellery online without having the opportunity to try it on or especially if you are buying for somebody else and aren't sure of the correct size to buy. Therefore I do offer a re-sizing service for a small fee, which will depend on the work involved. Please message me to discuss any sizing issue or query.

Please note that regrettably, re-sizing unfortunately is not available/possible for all the ring styles listed due to heat being applied to the metal which can damage/crack any stones which have been set. In that event, a discount may be offered on a replacement as it will need to be made from scratch. However, this will not apply to all personalised pieces.
