Ring (Finger Measuring)
Gem ring gauge or wedding ring gauge?
It is important have both a wedding ring and a gem ring gauge available in your workshop or showroom. Gem ring gauges are used to measure popular ring styles and are thinner whereas wedding ring bands are wider and provide a more realistic feel of a wedding ring as opposed to a standard ring.
Additionally wedding rings in particular can come in all different shapes and sizes, including the traditional fit "D" shape band (incorporating an inside flat surface as well as the "D" shaped outside surface).
Some hints and tips measuring customers to get the accurate finger size:
- When measuring a customer's finger size, always push the ring gauge (allowing some resistance) over the knuckle and onto the metacarpals (the part of the finger after the knuckle).
- The fingers on the hand can shrink or expand in different weathers up to one size either way. It is always best to measure finger sizes at room temperature.
