How to measure your ring for a fitted wedding ring.

I do a lot of online orders for my fitted wedding rings.  I wanted to provide a bit more detail for you to help you decide how my fitted rings will fit next to your engagement ring or other ring.

I want you to feel confident my rings will look great next to your existing ring, even when you are far away.  I can make a silver version of your ring to send to you and check the fit which you can use as credit towards your gold ring.

First you want to work out what type of setting you have:

1. Setting on top of the band

2. Setting joins to band

3. Setting tapers from larger on top to smaller at the finger.


1. Setting on top of band

For this style the ring band often is a complete circle and the setting for the gemstone sits on top.  This is the most versatile to work with my rings and will work with all my stacking rings, such as the Tiara ring and Lotus Sun ring.  There needs to be 1.5mm space for the rings to fit in underneath.

Claw set Sapphire setting on top of 1.5mm ring band.

Bezel set Sapphire Platinum ring stacked with Tiara ring.

Peach Tourmaline 6mm bezel setting on top of band stacked with double Tiara rings.

Rose cut 2mm diamond on 1mm yellow gold band with double wedding ring enhancers. 9ct Rose gold Tiara rings.

Here the Tiara ring stacks beautifully with the Labradorite ring and it's setting off the finger.

This tapered claw setting is almost the same size as the band and so works great with bands stacked up together.  Lotus sun silver ring.



2. Setting is part of the ring band

Here the gemstone setting join's directly to the band.  This style needs a fitted Lotus ring but works beautifully as these types of settings tend to be lower.



3. Setting tapers from larger on top to smaller at the finger.

The setting is still part of the band but it is smaller than when viewed from the top.  The setting may even be almost the same size as the band.  For this design to work well with your ring, it is best with settings that are as low as possible.

Side view - very slightly tapered claw setting in this example!  


Back view of setting in band. For this style of setting, it is critical you measure the size the setting where it meets the ring band, not from the top.

Only a very slight cut out is needed.  Here shown 3 Petal Lotus Ring.

This ring as you can see is quite high, and the Lotus ring does not fit in closely to the bottom of the setting as it tapers from the top to the band.


Information I need:

I need a measurement of the distance (DEPTH) your ring sticks out from the band. (2mm in this example). I also need the width of your setting (5mm). **For tapered settings I need the width at the base of the setting where it joins the band.**
