How can I know my ring size? It’s possibly one of the questions I am asked the most.

 

I want to start by telling you that all of our fingers have different ring sizes and that the ring number does not have to do with our physique. Just as I have seen very thin people with large ring sizes, I have also seen people with a bigger physique with very small rings.

I have also noticed that women in Central America have very small fingers and that European and North American women have larger fingers. This is why, in our store in Plaza Tempo, Escazú we have mainly small rings, in the points of sale such as hotels and airports bigger rings and in the website (www.ximenaesquivel.com) we have both sizes.

To take the measure of the finger you should preferably come to our jewelry in Plaza Tempo, so that we can measure the size taking into consideration the style of the ring.

If the ring is for you, we will take the measure with our finger gauge. The finger gauge is composed of rings ranging from 1 to 15 and their respective halfs. What we do is that we find your ring size and we look at the size. All of the rings from the gauge finder come with an engraved number.

If you want to know the size of a ring, not for you but for a gift, you can bring us a ring from that person and with the help of the ring stick we can tell you the size of the ring. The ring stick has the shape of an elongated cone and comes with the recorded measurements, which tells us the size of the ring.

If it is difficult for you to come to the store, my recommendation would be to download the free application "International Ring Sizer". The application is very easy to use and with the help of a ring and the app you can know your size numer. If you are going to use this method I recommend you to take into account two considerations.

The first consideration is that, if the ring has a very thick band I recommend you to buy a ring that is half a number bigger. This is because having a very thick band can fit tight if you buy it in your ring size.

The second recommendation is that if the ring has a very thin band it is better to buy it ¼ or ½ smaller number so it does not fit loose. This recommendation does not apply to people who have large knuckles. The application is quite accurate and when my clients have used it the number turned out to be the size of the ring they needed.

I hope this information will help you find your size. If you have any questions, do not hesitate to write me at info@ximenaesquivel.com
