One of the most common questions we get is “What size ring guard will work best for my ring?”
Besides the measurements of each ring guard (seen below), there are other measurements you can use to determine the best size ring guard to buy.
The most important point is not the size of your ring (for instance a size 7 that you want to make a 6 1/2) but the height and thickness of the band.
This is important because the “arms” of a ring guard must wrap around your band.
If the height of your rings band is 3mm, and it is a typical women’s ring in thickness then a small size is best. However, if the rings shank if thicker – making a heavy, or chunky ring – then it is wise to move up 1 size to a medium.
Some rings are heavier or have more girth to the band then the typical ring – be sure to make adjustments for this. The Size of the ring guard depends on the ring band (not ring size). The “arms” of the guard (size adjuster) should wrap to the inside of the band for the best ring fit. The guide below is to assist with typical ring bands. If in doubt – we have a mix pack available.
Ring Guards are available in white or yellow 14 KT gold filled.For silver rings we recommend the white gold.
