Spoon Ring Sizing: How can a spoon ring be a size 4 OR a size 12?

Hello out there internet!

  As a service to our wonderful customers, fans, and friends, we would like to begin a series to address frequently asked questions about our spoon rings.

 To start this series off, we would like to answer common questions about sizing. Many people wonder how the same spoon ring is available in a size 4, or a size 12. "Do you stretch the metal a bunch? Do you have many rings available in this design?" Good questions. Let's get down to the details:

- Size 4 to size 12: Our rings are open ended. They are very adjustable for this reason, and the wrap around design we use allows it to be worn at small ring sizes, or very large ring sizes. This is excellent news for people who tend to fluctuate in ring size over time. Your ring can fit to your specific finger!

- How is it done? We use our ring mandrel in our workshop to "open" the rings up in size, or "close" the ring "in" for a smaller fit. Here is a photo showing the same ring at vastly different sizes:

Here is one of our most popular designs at a size 4 

And at a size 7

And here is a size 10

 To show you the difference in look from our "chunkier" vs. more petite rings, we have a few more examples. First off, the petite rings cannot be sized up quite as much, but still have a good range.

 All this is to say that these rings are extremely versatile! If you have any further questions or comments, feel free to message us via our Etsy store.

 Thanks so much for reading, have a good day!
