Ring Sizing Information: Comfort Fit vs. Standard Fit
Alternative metal rings are made with "comfort fit" sizing. This means that the inside of the ring is rounded, which helps it slide over your knuckle easier. The inside diameter of the ring gets bigger as you get closer to the edge of the ring. In contrast, standard fit rings are flat on the inside of the ring, which means the inside diameter is the same as you move along from one edge to the other. Because of this difference, comfort fit rings tend to fit looser than standard fit rings of the same size. As a general rule of thumb, when purchasing a comfort fit ring, you should choose a size that is about a half size smaller than your standard fit ring size. Different jewelers have tools to measure ring size, but they may vary slightly, which can cause different jewelers to measure your finger at slightly different sizes. The width of a ring can affect sizing. Generally, a ring 10 mm or wider can feel tight and you may be just fine staying at the same size as your standard ring size. Because sizing can vary, please keep in mind that there will be slight variances of +/- 0.25 mm.
