Let's discuss the process of getting fitted for a ring. Now they say there are ways to try and fit yourself for a ring from doing a print out of a ring chart or using a zip tie to measure. These ways of going about it is not an ethical way of going about it.

Anyone that wants a proper fitting ring will want go to their local jeweler to get their finger sized. A jewelry store has a ring sizer to measure fingers accurately and find the perfect fit for any finger type.

Traditionally rings were a lot more rigid when sliding on to fingers. Nowadays, jewelers make many rings with comfort fit. This means the band's interior rounds off instead of being flat. If your ring is uncomfortable to wear, this could be a sign that you need a smaller or larger size.

When getting fitted for an engagement ring, or a ring in general. Keeping the season in mind is important. Our fingers tend to swell in warmer weather and shrink in colder weather. To make sure your ring fits well all year, measure it at different times of day and in different seasons.

Additionally, consider any lifestyle factors that may affect your ring size. If you use your hands a lot or do physical activities, choose slightly looser clothes in case your hands swell.

It's also worth noting that men and women often have different finger shapes and sizes. Women typically have slimmer fingers, so they may need a smaller ring size than men.

In general, it's best to err on the side of a slightly looser fit for comfort. You can always get your ring resized if needed. However, if you're unsure about your ring size or are purchasing an expensive ring, it's recommended to visit a jeweler for professional sizing.

Remember that finding the perfect fit for your engagement ring is important not just for comfort, but also for safety. If a ring is too big, it can easily fall off and get lost. On the other hand, if a ring is too small, it can be difficult to take off during an emergency.

Ultimately, the key to finding the right fit for your engagement ring is to try on different sizes and styles. Don't be afraid to ask for assistance from a jeweler, as they have the expertise to guide you in finding the perfect fit. Your ring size may change over time because of fluctuation of weight changes or finger shape. Therefore, it is a good idea to have your rings checked and resized if necessary.
