How to Size Stackable Rings

stackable initial birthstone name band ringsWhen stacking multiple rings the total size starts to get smaller and smaller. Think of wrapping thread around your finger. Wrapping once might feel fine. However, wrapping six times will feel considerably tighter. We’ve created a video to help you determine your size. If you are unsure of your size at all please check our our ring sizer HERE

 

How To Find Your Ring Size (or your wife’s ring size!)

how to find your ring sizeDuring the holidays we get asked many times a day by sweet significant others that want to purchase a ring as a gift. We always recommend knowing size the recipient is going to wear before purchasing one of our custom items. However, some decide to guess and are disappointing when the ring does not fit.

First, it is good to know that your left hand is usually a half to a whole size smaller than your right hand. So, please do not order your wife’s wedding ring size for her right hand. Also, body size, shoe size, and finger length cannot determine a women’s ring size either.

If you have enough time, you can purchase a ring sizer HERE first before ordering. Or, when shopping for your ring, choose for a ring sizer to be sent to you instead of selecting a size.Select “please send ring sizer for $2” in the size drop down box. We will send you a ring sizer through the mail to the shipping address on your invoice. Once you have used the ring sizer you will send us an email with the size and your invoice number. With your ring sizer you will receive directions on how to send the size, how use the sizer, and your invoice number.

Here’s a video on how to use our reusable $2 ring sizer.

You can give her the sizer and say, “I’m getting you something, but I want it to be a surprise. So, I’m not going to tell you what it is, however I need to know what size to get first.” She’ll still be excited and love you even more because you want to make sure it is done right. Trust us, a gift that fits is better than one that doesn’t.

If you’ve waited too long you can take one of the rings you know she wears and bring it to your local jeweler to find the size. Although, this is not the best method it sometimes works. I’d recommend this option if you’re buying something that is not customized.

If you have any questions please feel free to contact us and happy shopping!

  • sprinkle of sugar
  • 1 TBSP butter, melted

  3. Sprinkle and stir the sugar with the chopped cherries in a bowl.
  4. Lay out your heart cut outs on the baking sheet. Spoon on some fresh ricotta cheese, then spoon on the cherries. Lay down the top dough, seal to press with a fork.

Holiday Gift Guide for Different Types of Men

Hooray, the holidays are finally here! With Thanksgiving, Black Friday and Cyber Monday behind us, you may have finished your holiday shopping but for the rest of us, the holiday shopping procrastination is in full swing.

If shopping for your boyfriend, brother, husband or father is still on your to-do list, we are here to help! Buying for a man can be difficult, as a they don’t always mention what they want, and some rarely even find interest in receiving gifts. My husband has both of these characteristics – he doesn’t like shopping, he doesn’t like making lists, and he never tells me what he wants so what the heck am I supposed to get him? A razor that he will end up returning? Or a tie that he will never wear? We all want to get useful and/or meaningful gifts for the special men in our life but it’s hard to figure out where to start!

You may have seen us talk previously about all the amazing gifts for women across the spectrum – from graduation gifts to new mothers to wives but what about all the gentlemen of the world? They deserve the best presents as well. From a woman’s perspective, I’ve picked out a batch of presents that I think would cater to most men of the world, based on 5 different categories – the tech guy, the outdoorsman, the loving dad, the businessman, and the funny guy.

Someone’s personality and hobbies can help determine the type of category they may fall under. Does this special man in your life like joking around or technology, or is he business oriented? If you are unsure on which category your man falls into, just take a look at our gift ideas and see which ones you think would work best for him. Personally, my husband is really into technology; he wants the latest and greatest gadgets from phones to watches to video game consoles and for the most part, these items are on the expensive side so knowing which ones are “the best” or most popular is an important factor in my purchasing.

The Tech Guy

Beats by Dr. Dre. – Beats Studio Headphones

One of the hottest gadgets of this year! You can hook these up to a Bluetooth device, and hear sounds with clarity. You can also take hands-free calls and it is now wireless for up to 30 ft!

Apple TV

With Apple TV, you can stream the apps you use on your phone straight to your television. This would make watching Hulu Plus or Netflix with the family so much easier.

Sony SmartWatch 3

This watch lets you get your smartphone notifications straight to your wrist. You can listen to music, use a GPS, and get app notifications without carrying around your cell phone. This is the perfect gadget for any tech savvy guy!

The Outdoorsman

Aviator Sunglasses

The Businessman

Mophie Juice Pack H2PRO (for iPhone)

This little device acts both as a charger and as a phone case. It’s also waterproof, exceeds Military Standards for protection and can provide up to 100% extra battery life. This is great for any busy man who is running around from meeting to meeting all day.

Designer Tie

A go-to gift for any businessman is a nice tie! My dad is a businessman but not really a huge tie wearer. However, I think one of these designer ties linked above would really make him feel special! Even men like expensive things once in awhile.

My Guy Isn’t on Here; I Still Don’t Know What to Get!

It’s okay to get creative and combine your own ideas! Don’t let this process stress you out. The holidays are supposed to be a wonderful time of the year, full of cheers, happiness and surprises! Each and every man is different, so try to make your gift as fun, meaningful and unique as you can. After all, it’s the thought and intention that counts right? Follow your heart, and he won’t be disappointed!

Happy Holidays!
