Ring Sizing for Large Knuckles by Miami’s Best Custom Jewelry Store
Are you having a hard time finding the right size for your ring? Does your ring fit too snug over the knuckle and spins when you finally get it passed?
Choosing the right ring size should be easy but for people with large knuckles or tapering fingers, it’s a frustrating process. Our Custom Jewelry store in Miami can give you the best option to get the nicest designs and perfect fit. Below are 3 options for ring sizing for people who just can’t seem to find the perfect fit.
Sizing Beads are a solution for those who need their rings just a half size larger to pass the knuckle. The jeweler solders two small beads of gold on the inside of the ring. This is the easiest method to keep rings from spinning. It works best for people whose rings are just a tiny bit too big once it passes the knuckle. Anything greater than a half size difference and the ring may be too difficult to put on.
Pros : Most afforable solution for spinning rings.
Cons : Because the beads take up about a half size, they can make rings uncomfortable for the wearer to get on and off.
Spring Inserts are a solution for those who need one size up to get their ring pass the knuckle. A spring insert is a thin piece of gold in the shape of a horseshoe that is soldered to the bottom of the ring.
Pros : Because spring inserts are more flexible than sizing beads, rings with spring inserts are more comfortable get on and off
Cons : With use, the spring insert can become worn and the gold can crack. And it is limited to one full size difference from the knuckle to the base of the finger. Like sizing beads, spring inserts can sometimes be uncomfortable for the wearer to get on and off.
Adjustable Shank are for those who need anything more than just one size up to pass the knuckle. Adjustable shanks allow you to open the ring and wrap it around your finger without having to pass the knuckle at all.
Pros : Very comfortable and look flawless.
Cons : Adjustable shanks are expensive. Over time they may have to be adjusted to make sure they close right.
