5 Ring Size Measuring Tips

Measuring your finger may sound like a simple task, however, there are many different things that can go wrong! To save you the trouble of having a ring stuck on your finger or even damaging the ring itself, here are our top 5 ring sizing pro-tips! 

  1. Make sure that the ring slider (whether that be paper or plastic) will also fit over your knuckle. If you have thin fingers, but larger knuckles, you may need to order order up!
  1. Believe it or not, temperature can actually affect ring sizing. In the cold, your finger will actually be smaller and if you’re warm your finger will always be larger. This may not seem like too big of a change, but it can be the difference between a well-fitted ring and an uncomfortable tight squeeze. Be sure to accommodate for these changes when getting your ring fitted. 
  1. The same finger may be bigger or smaller depending on which finger you are measuring. An example of this could be if your ring finger on your right hand is a 6.5, while the finger on your left hand may be a 6. For most people, your dominant hand is slightly larger.
  1. Diet can play a large role in the size of your ring. When you eat salty foods, your body will retain water. Water retention can result in a larger ring size. Alcohol is another dietary factor that can increase the size of your finger by a half size! For the most accurate results of your ring measurement, wait a full day or two before measuring after binging on that (well-deserved) beer and fries!
  1. When in doubt, order up half a size!

Finding the right sized ring for your needs can be a difficult process, but at CJ Jewels International we will assist you in turning the ring of your dreams into a reality!

80:20 Principle. Facebook Shines!!

The Pareto principle states that, for many events, roughly 80% of the effects come from 20% of the causes. In essence 80% of your results in business will come from 20% of your efforts. The same applies to social media. There is not dearth of social media platforms that one can find while evaluating which one to choose to promote their business online. However this chart clearly demonstrates that Facebook far outshines all other media when it comes to business results. If you are short on resources or have limited resources like every small and medium business does, you are better off focusing your efforts Facebook to drive sales, build awareness or whatever it is that you want to achieve. We recently launched a complementary social media package with a unique focus on Facebook to help our retail customers outshine their competition.
