GENERAL SIZING TIPS

If you’re not sure which size ring to purchase, don’t freak out! Generally, jewellery designers follow international ring sizing guides. Most of the labels we stock are international and so all ring sizes on The Armoury are listed in US sizes.

The most common ring sizes are 5-8. On average, a size 5 fits a ring finger, a size 6 fits a middle finger and a size 7 fits an index finger, however all hands vary in size so please check our guide before making a purchase.

If you use the measurements and you are between sizes, it is always better to size up.

*The hand model we use in most of our images is as follows:
Ring finger: size 6
Middle finger: size 7
Index finger: size 8

MIDI RING SIZING

A general rule of thumb is that a midi ring will be 3-4 sizes smaller than your normal size. For example, if you are a size 7 on your middle finger, you should take a size 4 in midi ring. However, it is always best to measure your own fingers to be sure.

Special instructions for Esses band-aid rings

These rings are very versatile and were designed to sit as band-aids: on your knuckles. Because your knuckle is closer to the tips of your finger and smaller in width, judge accordingly. Sizes 3 and 4, 4.5 knuckle rings can be worn by women who have conventional ring sizes from 5-8.

The Mini Bandaid Ring ‘F’ (size 1) is best as either a pinky ring, or as a midi ring for the ring finger. If you are a size 5-6 on your ring finger, this will fit.

Every hand is different and the band-aid ring can be worn on several types and parts of fingers. It will take a few days to adjust to the knuckle ring and then it will feel like a second glove.

Conversely, use a piece of strong to measure the circumference of your finger, and compare:

SIZING TIPS FOR SNUG FIT / HUGGIE HOOPS

It is important to know what measurement you will require in order for a hoop to fit an ear piercing snugly. The measurement is not a reflection of your ear size; it is the measurement in relation to the position of the relevant piercing.

The measurement you will need to take is the distance between the piercing itself and the edge of the ear. To do so, take a piece of paper and line it up with the piercing. Mark where the edge of the ear is with a pen. Measure this distance with a ruler - this is the measurement you should use when purchasing a snug fit earring.

All of our snug fit and huggie hoops are between 5mm and 6.5mm inner diameter. These sizes will fit the majority of upper cartilage and higher lobe piercings, but we ask that you measure your own ear before purchasing.
