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.

Crane and Eagle, spokespersons and leaders of the People

In Anishinaabe tradition, the Crane and Eagle Clans represent Ogimaag (the leaders) of the Nation; particularly leaders that are spokesmen charged with outgoing international communications. Ajijaak the Crane, the most vocal of all binesiwag (large bird species), which is sometimes described by its metaphorical name Baswenaazhi or "Echo Maker", gave its name to clans of the Ojibweg, the Odaawaag (Odawa), the Bodéwadmik (Potawatomi), and the Misizaagiwininiwag (Mississauga). Echo Maker is responsible for leadership and external communication because of his loud and clear voice. Members of the Crane clan are traditionally noted for giving direction and for their oratory skills. In Ojibwe society, the Waabajijaak or White Crane clan used to provide for the traditional hereditary ogimaag.

Migizi, the Bald Eagle, also gave its name to clans of the Ojibwe, Odaawaa, Bodéwadmi, and Misizaagiwinini NationsIn earlier times, Migizi doodem used to be once one of the smaller Leadership clans in Ojibwe society; however, the number of Eagle clan members grew when new members whose paternal ancestors were Euro-Americans were assigned to this clan. Nowadays the combined Eagle clans (Migizi the Bald eagle and Giniw the Golden Eagle) are among the most numerous Anishinaabe doodemag across the United States and Canada.

As opposed to popular belief, the Haudenosaunee or Six Nations Confederacy do not have an Eagle clan. Eagle, however, does play an important symbolical role in Haudenosaunee tradition; being a special messenger to the Great Mystery (Creator), Eagle, placed atop the Tree of Peace, is a protector who alerts members of the Confederacy if danger approaches.
