Size selection is an important factor in the comfort of the ring. Even if ring size is the same, if the ring is wide, it might feel tighter, and if it is narrow, it might feel loose.
The human hand is especially affected by swelling, and the size might change even within the day, or depending on the season. In addition, if the finger joints are wide, the ring will easily rotate, and if the joints are thinner than the base of the finger, the ring will easily fall out.
In order to wear wedding and engagement rings with peace of mind for many years to come, it is important to select the appropriate size according to the design. At our atelier, our concierge will assist you in selecting the optimal size.

What we think is important in measuring the size
Just like clothing, watches, and shoes, each customer has his or her own preference as to whether he or she prefers a ring that fits snugly or a ring that is slightly loose for the finger. In our size measurements, we will thoroughly ask customers about their preference, especially for customers who are not accustomed to wearing rings.

Rings created at ith are repaired by craftsmen in our own workshop who take responsibility for repairing the ring in the most appropriate way according to the ring design. All metals can be handled in increments of #0.5.
Even for some designs such as full eternity rings or rings with patterns all around the ring that are difficult to completely repair, with the customer's approval, we will repair the ring as inconspicuously as possible.
We offer free resizing up to ±2 sizes within 6 months from the date of delivery.
When to resize
The right timing for resizing is when the ring naturally comes off, when it digs into your finger and you feel pain, or after childbirth.
Since finger size always changes depending on the season, time of day, and physical condition, we recommend that you have your ring resized if it comes off naturally or if you feel pain from pressure on your finger.
In addition, it is safe to take a temporary break from wearing rings during the last trimester of pregnancy and immediately after delivery due to weight changes and swelling. We recommend that you wear the ring when you have calmed down after giving birth and have it resized if necessary.
Points to keep in mind when resizing
Depending on the design, the pattern on the surface of the ring or texture pattern of part of the ring may change after resizing. We recommend that you understand the risk before requesting a re-sizing.
What is the size that makes fingers look slimmer?
It is said that wearing a ring with a little bigger in the size will make your finger look slimmer. However, the risk of deformation may increase depends on your finger shape and ring design, so please consult with us if you have such request.
When increasing the size, instead of beating to make it thinner, we resize it by adding bullion to match the size to be changed. When reducing the size, excess metal is cut and welded.
In the case of a design with diamonds or patterns evenly distributed all around the surface, the ring may be resized by a process that does not involve adding or cutting the extra metal in order to maintain the design on the surface.
Our craftsmen select the best method for resizing rings to ensure that the ring is both comfortable to wear and perfectly-designed.
