If you'd like to purchase our ring sizers to make sure your ring will fit perfectly, click HERE .
Buying OUR ring sizers is the only 100% guarantee that the ring will fit perfectly. We understand due to time time or geographic constraints, buying our sizers isn't the always the most viable option. If you have to size your finger locally we suggest following these sizing instructions:
To make sure you give an accurate ring size when ordering please visit 2-3 local jewelers who can size your finger for you. Make sure to use a sizer that is the same width as the ring you are purchasing. We make some of our rings with a comfort fit (rounded inside) and others with a standard fit (flat inside), as noted in the listing description, so have the jewelers size you accordingly. Your fingers can swell and contract at different times of day and in different climate conditions, so take this into consideration.
If you are worried about giving us the wrong ring size, you can have a jeweler take a pair of digital calipers and measure the inside diameter (in millimeters to the nearest 0.1mm) of the sizer that fits you. We will take this measurement to make the ring that EXACT size. Use our size chart below to match with the diameter measurement to order the correct size. If you’re unsure which size to select, message our support team at support@stoneforgestudios and we will assist you with selecting the correct size.
Because of the natural products we use to make your rings, they can not be resized after they are made. If you did not order the correct size we will happily split the cost of creating a new, correctly sized ring. Please refer to the sizing guide to make sure you are ordering the correct size.
We base our sizes off of this ring chart:
Engraving:Engravings are a wonderful way to make your ring just that much more custom and unique! We offer text and image engravings.
For Text engravings there are a few things to consider:
- We limit text length to 30 characters. Any more than that and we have to make the characters small to fit inside the ring and they can become harder to read.
- We can do engravings in most fonts, but the three most popular are: Arial, Script, and Times New Roman (See image below as an example)
For Image engravings, we will need a clean, black/white image of what you want engraved. There might be some limitations when it comes to images, but our team over at firstname.lastname@example.org will be happy to assist you with any questions!
Unfortunately we can ONLY engrave on metal surfaces. If the inside of the ring is wood, antler, stone, or carbon fiber; we won't be able to engrave on them. Also, when we engrave on Damascus Steel, we will be engraving over the etched damascus patterns. We engrave deep enough for the text to be visible, but be aware that the engraving will be over the top of the etched surface.
Choosing a different metal may change the color of the metal pictured. We don't plate the metal to give it a different color. If you choose one of the gold options, the ring will be made in 10k Gold, unless otherwise specified in the specifications above. (See metal option picture as a reference)
Unless otherwise specified in the listing description, the metal option you select at checkout will change the color of all the metal in the ring. The title in each listing reflects the metal option shown in the first listing image. Since we offer so many different metal options and so many different styles, we aren't able to show images of each metal color in each ring style. Please be aware of this at checkout. If you're worried about metal color combinations, please reach out to our support team at email@example.com and they can assist you further and send you a computer render of the color combination for your reference.
Special Material/Inlay Information:
Full Stone Inlays: Our full stone inlays (except petrified wood and etched meteorite) are made using a material called "Trustone." Trustone is a composite stone made from a mixture of actual ores and resin. This mixture makes the stone more stable and durable while also achieving vibrant and natural color tones.
Crushed Stone Inlays: Crushed inlays are as the name suggests; real crushed stones that are put into our rings. We mix the crushed stone with a durable binder which makes it just as strong and durable as a full stone inlay. Since the stone is crushed, the texture is different than a full stone inlay.
Full Opal Inlays: We use lab grown opal for our full opal inlays. It would be near impossible to cut and inlay natural opal in this same way (PLUS alot more expensive) and lab grown opal is more stable for every day use and wear. Keep in mind, that we inlay the opal in smaller sections around the ring. Our skilled artisans do their best to make those seams flush and invisible, but due to variations in material/colors those seams can sometimes be visible. This doesn't detract from the beauty that is our full opal inlay
Take care of your ring. It's just like anything else in life: The more love you give it, the more love you get.
As our rings are made from organic materials, such as wood and antler, you need to protect them more than you would need to protect a metal ring. In the final stages of production we cover our rings with a special coating that makes the ring waterproof but not invincible. Feel free to wear your ring while swimming, showering, or during any other aquatic activity. Do not wear your ring during rough menial tasks to help to prolong its life. Also, using harsh household cleaning chemicals can breakdown the finish and damage your ring.
We will happily split the cost of repairing your damaged ring. Your satisfaction is our top priority!
