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.

Nizaagi’idiwininaan wanji-mizakamig, “From The Bosom Of The Earth Springs Our Love”, thus is the poetic title of this sterling silver wedding ring set of a sleek, organic design, which combines the overlay silversmithing technique with the typical “pictographic” outline style of Native Medicine (Woodland) painting.
The outline of the Sleeping Giant, a rock formation that magically juts out of the water of Thunder Bay in Lake Superior, is a favorite design inspiration for jeweler Zhaawano.
The two halves of the wedding rings’ exteriors, divided by a cut out, flowing outline inspired by the dramatic silhouette of the Sleeping Giant, represent the bodies and spirits of two life partners becoming one with each other and with Aki (Mother Earth) and Giizhig (Father Sky).
The stylized, inlaid silhouettes of their faces rise up out of the Earth, the anatomical features of their bodies joining the earth's surface and the sky region (symbolized by the inlaid sun and moon figures depicted at the bottom of the rings) in one fluid motion; thus the life partners become a symbolic unity with the Earthmother herself and with all of the Universe. From Aki's fertile womb they sprang, and unto her they shall return...
