What Size do I Need?

Helping you to choose the perfect size in plus size jewellery

Ring Size

If you are buying one of our rings, but are unsure of your finger size or want to choose one as a present for a loved one, don't worry you can use one of our guides to work out the size you need.

Please remember that fingers fluctuate in size due to changes in temperature and at different times of the day. Ideally measure your finger at a few different times to ensure you get the correct size.

If you find that you are in between sizes, we would recommend that you round up or down to the closest size. For example if you are a size R, your closest size would be a Q 1/2 as this is only half a size difference. The size S would be a full size bigger and is likely to be too big, unless you like your rings to fit loosely.

The Circle Test

You can print out and use our ring sizing guide to identify the size of a ring that you already own. If you are buying a ring as a present for someone, you can secretly use one of their rings to find out their size – just make sure you know which finger it’s for!

The circle test is quite simple and there are full instructions in the guide. All you need to do is place the ring over the circles and find a perfect match.

You could also measure the internal diameter of the ring (the width across the ring from each inner edge). Then use the table in the guide to work out the size from the diameter.

The Paper Test

If you don't have a ring that already fits you, print out our sizing guide and do the paper test.

This test will work out your ring size with the help of the sizer, which you simply print, cut out and use to measure your finger. Follow the instructions in the guide.

Still not sure?

If you’re finding the paper ring sizer a little fiddly and are in no hurry to order your ring, let us know and we can post you out a plastic finger size gauge. This will allow you to check your size more accurately and you can keep it to use again next time you order a ring from us.

Get in touch to ask us to send you a plastic ring sizer. E-mail us at customercare@curvedrose.com

Alternatively if you are worried about getting the right size first time, you can always visit a local jewellers and ask to have your finger measured. They will do this for free and it is definitely the most accurate way to find out your size.

Bracelet Size

Our Bracelets come in two lengths: 21cm and 23cm.

To determine your bracelet size, just follow these simple steps.

STEP 1: Measure your wrist with a flexible tape measure, a piece of string, ribbon or plain piece of paper. Wrap it around your wrist, just below the wrist bone, where you would normally wear your bracelet.

STEP 2: If you are using string, ribbon or paper, mark your size with a pen. Then measure it with a ruler. This measurement gives you your wrist size.

STEP 3: To find your bracelet size, just add your wrist size to one of the measurements below, depending on how you would like it to fit.

Curved Rose bracelets come in two sizes 21cm and 23cm. If it’s easier you can cut a length of string or ribbon to either 21cm or 23cm and wrap it around your wrist to check which size fits you better.

Chain length for Pendants

You can choose one of four different chain lengths when you buy a Curved Rose pendant: 18, 20, 22 and 24 inches.

Knowing which size to order depends on how you like to wear your pendants, some people prefer wear them lower, some higher or you may want it to sit perfectly with an outfit for a special occasion.

To work out which size to order, just use a piece of string or ribbon and drape it around your neck whilst in front of the mirror. Once you have chosen the length that suits you, cut and then measure it against a ruler or tape measure. Then simply select the closest chain length to your measurement.

Alternatively you can measure the chain length of a necklace that you already own to determine the correct length to order.

Now you know your perfect size we hope you enjoy choosing the perfect Curved Rose piece to match.
