Finding The Perfect Ring

Browsing through ring designs online can be a really fun thing to do… until you have decided on one to buy but is not sure of the size. A quick search online might confuse you, as there are many different types of ring size charts. 

Ring Size Guide

There are various ways to know the size before buying a ring. The easiest way is to use the size of an existing ring. If you are unable to do so, you can use a measuring tape, a string, or even a strip of paper to wrap around your finger. If using a string or paper, measure the circumference of your finger by using the marked string or paper against a ruler. An extra advice when measuring your finger size is to account for the knuckle of your finger by going a size up if your knuckle is relatively bigger than the base of your finger. 

If all fails, you can come down to our retail store for professional retail staff to help you.

Ring Types and Styles

There are too many to describe in a blog. From engagement rings to wedding bands to friendship bands and fashion rings, the list is endless. However, one of the most popular styles is the solitaire. This is a ring design that features 1 main stone, typically a diamond. This style comes in many variations, from the type of stone to the number of prongs to hold it, to the settings of the ring. 


Ring Material

The most recommended and popular ring material is gold. Gold does not rust, tarnish or corrode. On top of that, it has a beauty and luster unmatched by any other metal. There are various types of gold with different purity, with the most common being 14K, 18K, and 22K. The “K” symbolises karat, which is a system measuring the purity of gold against 24 parts. Any lower or higher gold purity is not recommended for rings worn on a regular basis. For rings with lower purity, it means that a higher percentage of other metals is alloyed with gold. For fully pure gold rings, as known as 24K or 999, 99.9% of the ring is made of gold, which is soft in nature. This means that although it looks great and is of highest purity and value, it might get out of shape more easily. 


Ring Colour

After choosing the main material, comes the colour of the ring. Metal rings most commonly come in yellow, white or rose tone. It has also become more common to see mixed-tone rings, from two-toned to even three-toned. Some people also like the look of stacking and mixing rings with different colour tones.


Beaded Rings

We are categorising beaded rings on their own here, separate from the metal rings. For beaded rings, the colours are a lot more versatile. It can come in any colour of the rainbow and more! It is even possible to mix up the beads for a colourful ring of your choice if the retailer offers such an option. Instead of a gem as the center of attention on the ring, it is more popularly matched with a gold charm of your choice.
