How Different Styles Affect Ring Sizing

Hey there, fashionistas and jewelry lovers! So you've nailed down your ring size (if you haven't, check out our previous post on sizing your finger). But hold your horses! Before you hit that 'buy' button, let's talk about how different ring styles can affect your ring sizing.

The Anatomy of a Ring

Before diving into styles, it's essential to understand the parts of a ring: the band, the setting, the shank, and so on. Knowing these terms will make it easier for you to understand why some styles might need adjustments in size.

Solitaire Rings

  • Simple and Elegant: Usually, the sizing is straightforward because the design is simple.
  • Consider the Band: If the band is particularly thick, you may want to go half a size up.

Halo Rings

  • Snug Fit: Because of the surrounding stones, these rings often feel snugger.
  • Sizing Tip: Consider going up by half a size to ensure it's not too tight.

Eternity Rings

  • Non-Resizable: These are tricky since they usually have stones all around the band.
  • Expert Advice: Always get professionally sized for this style and maybe opt for a quarter size larger.

Stackable Rings

  • Tight Squeeze: When stacking multiple rings, they can start to feel tight.
  • Stack Smart: Consider buying the base ring in your actual size and the ones you'll stack a quarter to half size larger.

Gemstones and Sizing

Stones can add weight and may require a more snug fit to keep the ring from spinning. We always recommend considering the weight of the gemstones in the style you choose.

Custom Sizing

Many designers, including us at Shiny Magic Rocks, offer custom sizing for intricate designs, which is a surefire way to get the perfect fit.


There's no one-size-fits-all when it comes to ring styles. Keep these pointers in mind, and you'll be well on your way to finding your perfect match! Keep an eye out for our next post on bracelet and bangle sizing. Until then, keep sparkling!
