Sizing for Gifts: How to Get It Right Without Asking

Hey there, jewelry enthusiasts! So you want to gift a dazzling piece to someone special but don’t know their size? We've all been there, and let's be honest, asking can ruin the surprise. Worry not; today, we're unraveling the art of sizing for gifts without spilling the beans!

The Art of Sleuthing

Borrow, Don't Steal

  • Rings: Borrow one they won't miss for a short while and take it to a jeweler for sizing or use a sizing chart.

Bracelets and Necklaces

  • Get Creative: Consider a piece that they always wear and try to gauge its length visually or use a string.

The Gift Receipt is Your Friend

  • Practicality: Always opt for a gift receipt. This allows for easy exchanges if the size isn’t perfect.

Opt for Adjustable Pieces


  • Adjustable Rings: These offer a wider margin for error and can fit various finger sizes.

Chains and Bracelets

  • Extendable Options: Look for pieces that have a 1-2 inch extender chain.

Seasons Matter

  • Summer vs. Winter: Remember, fingers swell in summer and shrink in winter; aim for a mid-range size if you're unsure.

Use Existing Jewelry as a Guide

  • Watch and Learn: If they wear a watch, you can often gauge wrist size based on that.

When All Else Fails, Go for Earrings or Pendants

  • One-Size-Fits-All: These pieces usually fit everyone and eliminate the sizing headache altogether.


Gifting jewelry can be nerve-wracking, but with a little ingenuity and these insider tips, you'll be well on your way to lighting up someone’s life with a perfectly fitting piece. Next up in our series, we'll delve into a subject for those in love—engagement and wedding ring sizing. Can't wait? Neither can we!
