Advice on Engagement Rings for Sale: Sizing Your Rings

Buying an engagement ring is a huge deal, and it’s something you want to get absolutely correct. A mess up here could haunt you for the rest of your life! While you obsess over things like the designer brand name and how many carats it is, you may be overlooking something simple yet important. We’re talking about the size of the ring!

Should I Buy Wedding Rings at the Same Size as the Engagement Rings?

Jewelry buyers all too frequently wonder how big the wedding band should be compared to the original engagement ring. Should the wedding ring be the same size, or be larger, or perhaps smaller? If smaller, should you go a half or full size smaller? With so many questions, no wonder you’re concerned about shopping for engagement rings for sale.

The first step is to understand what the “right” fit is. Just because the ring slides on doesn’t make it perfect. The engagement ring should fit snugly, without being too tight. There should be no excessive bulging of the skin beneath the ring. Looser isn’t always better, though. If the ring is too loose, it will spin around on her finger and won’t stay in place. It may even fall off and get lost!

Once the engagement ring is correctly sized, jewelry industry experts recommend matching the wedding band size so that both rings are the same size. This fabulous 14K White Gold Round Shaped Ruby Diamond Engagement Ring and this Tiffany & Co 950 Platinum Classic Ring are both a size 7.0 and would look incredible when worn as a set.

If the engagement ring and wedding ring feel a bit tight when worn as a set, this is probably due to the width of both rings when combined together. If this is bothersome, a small increase in half a finger size will work to make it more comfortable.
