Our Vital Sizing Ring Process
Each of our rings are custom created with a personalized fit to provide you with the most comfortable, perfectly fitting ring possible. We do NOT stock rings. Every ring is 3D CAD designed, then precision CNC machined from billet U.S. made aircraft grade titanium. They are made one at a time in our Mill Valley, California studio.
Our customers tend to fall into two different groups:
- Guys getting married that have never worn a wedding ring (or any jewelry for that matter).
- Guys that are already married and are upgrading or replacing their original wedding ring.
In either case, because my rings are NOT RESIZABLE, it is essential to get this part right! Jewelry store ring sizers, paper sizers, etc. - won’t let you know how your wedding ring feels throughout your day/week. So, in order for you to really know what you are getting into and to really nail proper size the first time, every ring ordered will begin with you being mailed my Fit Kit - a test set of 5 rings - the size the store said you need, and two 1/2 size smaller and two 1/2 size larger.
Because my rings open, they easily slide over your knuckle. This allows you to own the most comfortable, perfectly fitting ring possible. And since our rings are not re-sizable, it is important to get your size right. Here is how we achieve the fit that feels great.
Step 1: Get sized at any jewelry store (preferably with a wide ring sizer) or order a preliminary sizer here- Amazon.com: Ring Sizer Measuring Tool.
Step 2: Complete purchase. Include size and any other important details in cart (e.g.; wedding or “need by” date).
Step 3: Before I start work on your order, you will first be mailed my special "Fit Kit" ring sizing kit. We will mail you five black Delrin plastic sizing rings - the size ordered, plus two 1/2 size smaller and two 1/2 size larger (for example - size 9 order receives sizes 8, 8.5, 9, 9.5 and 10). These rings can be cut with a razor blade (provided) to allow them to stretch over your knuckle.
If you have large knuckles, use the included razor blade and carefully cut ring as in the picture. Use included Steri-Strip to close (important).
Step 4: Wear the sample rings for around a day to gain the confidence that you've found the most comfortable size. Wear them for as long as necessary (take your time!) until you find the one that is most comfortable to wear throughout the day (not tight, not loose). People’s fingers shrink and swell a bit throughout their day due to exercise and hydration. Try to find the ring that feels best during this range - not constrictive, but not sloppy.
Step 5: Once you feel really good about “the one”, email us your results. Important: we now make all of our rings in 1/4 sizes, so if you feel you are between sizes just let us know. We will begin making your ring on a first come, first served basis (from order date). Dependent on workload, we will make every attempt to get your ring completed within a 3-4 week time frame (after size established). If you have an impending wedding, we’ll try even harder.
