Some considerations when measuring ring sizes:
Professional sizing methods are more reliable and accurate than online or at-home methods. Professional sizing can be done at a local reputable jeweler.
It is important to take into account the width of your ring band as wider bands typically require a larger size to fit comfortably. It is therefore always best to be sized with a professional jeweler's ring sizer of the same width as the one you intend to purchase.
The best size is usually the ring that fits snugly and gives a little resistance when you take it off. If you have additional questions, please do not hesitate to ask.
About the wedding rings
In Anishinaabe tradition, the feathers of the Migizi, the Bald Eagle, are regarded as anam'ewin mizhinaweg, prayer carriers of messages and giving thanks. Migizi is known for soaring high in the sky and it is therefore understood that no other creature is closer to the Great Mystery than this mighty spirit bird. His feathers have the power to convey human thoughts and feelings directly to the Great Mystery; they provide him or her who seeks wisdom and curing with an opportunity to speak with debwewin (a straight mind) and bekide’ewin (a pure heart). The stylized feathers adorning the above wedding rings symbolize spirit, honesty, and prayer; the sparkling fire of the Swarovski gemstone mounted on the ladies' ring represents the Teachings and the blessings of the Great Mystery that are being reflected back at the person who does the praying.

"I address my voice to the skies
The eagle feather will be your Messenger
Your sacred charm will take flight
The eagles will guide you
The Great Mystery is generous with us."

Why choose a Swarovski gemstone?
Pure Brilliance Swarovski Zirconia is the most diamond-like Zirconia on the market – which makes it an excellent alternative to diamond for use in wedding rings.
Swarovski Zirconia and diamond share a great number of similarities and are very difficult to distinguish from one another. The very high refractive index and perfect cut of Swarovski Zirconia imitate the brilliance and fire of the purest diamonds. Swarovski Zirconia is very hard, heat resistant, and refracts light just like a diamond. These characteristics make it the most popular diamond imitation.
Diamonds are naturally occurring gemstones; Swarovski Zirconia, however, is a laboratory-created material. Diamonds are the hardest minerals that exist with a hardness of 10 on the Mohs scale. Swarovski Zirconia is still very hard, reaching a rating of 8.5.
Since Swarovski is eco-friendly because of its less exploitative mining practices necessary to obtain it, it makes it a popular alternative to diamonds. Last but not least, a Swarovski gemstone costs a fraction of the price of a comparable diamond, which makes our wedding rings much more affordable.
