Q: How to measure ring sizes or how to convert UK to US size?

Pearl rings can be extremely personal. They can be used for promise rings, engagement rings, or just to say “I love you!”. The amazing variety available in settings combined with the thousands of different pearls you can select from make a pearl ring one of the most unique pieces of jewelry around.

Tahitian pearl ring, 18k gold Sizing can be confusing when it comes to pearl rings, as US, UK and European sizes differ. The best option is to visit a jeweler and have them tell you what size you need by measuring your finger. Then simply forward that size to us along with what country you are in, and we can ensure that the fit is correct.
Alternately, you can use a piece of string or a slim band of paper to measure your finger. Simply wrap the string or paper around your finger at the base, mark the point at which overlap begins, then lay your string or paper flat and measure with a ruler marked in millimeters(mm). This will give you the proper circumference of the inside of the ring.

Determine your ring size

The chart below show the different sizes and how they compare. All you have to worry about is how many  the circumference of the ring needs to be to fit around your finger. We can take care of the rest!

As you can see, a size ‘6’ ring in the US matches a size ‘L’ ring in the UK. If you already own a perfectly fitting ring and know its size, just forward that information!

Tips:
If you are between sizes, order a larger size. Make sure your finger is at a normal body temperature (fingers shrink or expand when cold or hot). If your knuckle is much larger than your finger’s base, take two separate measurements and choose a size in between. You want a ring to fit over your knuckle, but not be too loose or it will shift around.

Cultured Pearls vs Natural Pearls

Cultured Pearls and Natural Pearls are both REAL Pearls.

Natural Pearls are "wild-caught" pearls, will occur without any intervention by human beings. A natural pearl is formed organically when an irritant accidentally gets into the soft tissue of the mussel in an oyster.This irritant,such as seawater sand or dust, activates the oyster's defense mechanism, causing it to produce layers of secretions to coat the irritant. These layers of secretion (also called nacre) slowly develops into a natural pearl.
Natural/Wild Pearls are typically found by accident. They usually form unusual and more organic shapes. Very few are symmetrical or perfect spheres. Decent quality natural pearls have high price tag as their rarity, not affordable for most people.

Cultured Pearls are "farmed" pearls which grow in a pearl farm. Pearl cultivation involves the process of pearl farmers physically inserting an irritant, such as a shell bead nucleus, inside the soft tissue of the oyster. Then the layers of nacre are formed naturally, just like the natural pearls.
Cultured pearls have much more production than natural ones, and the quality are the same or even better. The price is affordable for us. Now Most pearls sold today are cultured.

What are Baroque Pearls

Baroque pearls are pearls which have irregular non-spherical or oddly shapes. Baroque pearls come in a variety of shapes from tiny to large. Such as coin pearls, keshi pearls, biwa pearls aka stick pearls, cross pearl, teardrop pearl etc. The most common type of baroque pearls are freshwater pearls, because freshwater pearls are mantle-tissue nucleated instead of bead nucleated. Cultured saltwater pearls can also come in baroque, but tend to be more teardrop-shaped due to the use of a spherical nucleation bead.

What is Mother of Pearl
Mother of pearl is the iridescent internal layer of a mollusk shell, also known as nacre, which is created by mollusks to protect their soft interior tissue. Mother of pearl is commonly produced from three types of mollusks—pearl oysters, freshwater mussels and abalone.
Mother of Pearl vs Pearl
Mother of pearl refers specifically to the nacre-coated inner-shell of the mollusk; Pearls are formed inside the mollusk, often within its body tissue. When an irritant into the soft tissue, the creature then coats the irritant (or nucleus) with layer upon layer of nacre, which over time builds up a real pearl.
