Ideally, you'd like your ring to fit just snug enough on your finger that it doesn't spin, but loosely enough that it can slide on and off over your knuckle with only slight effort. For many people, getting this type of fit is simply a matter of measuring their finger and having their ring adjusted to the proper size.
But for people with larger knuckles relative to their finger circumference, getting the right fit is a bit easier said than done. In their case, a ring that fits comfortably over the knuckle would spin too much when in place, while a ring that fit the finger properly would be impossible to get on and off. Fortunately, we offer super fit rings to address just this type of problem.
A super fit ring is basically a ring that opens and closes like a bracelet or watch band, allowing you to slide it into place before securing it. That means it can sit snugly on your finger, and you still have the flexibility to get it over your knuckles quickly and easily.
If you're in the market for a new ring and these types of issues sound familiar to you, we'll be glad to build a new custom super fit ring for you from the ground up. Our expert jewelers can create a new custom super fit ring in any style and size, and our design team will work with you to ensure the piece we produce is exactly what you wanted in every way.
Of course, you may already have quite a few rings that you're unable to wear, and we can help you reclaim these as well. Our skilled craftsmen will take the band out of your existing ring and work a super fit band into place, all while preserving the original gemstones and other design elements.
We can make super fit rings in a variety of metals and in a range of widths to help ensure we can make the perfect ring to suit your tastes. White, yellow, and rose gold are options, as are platinum and palladium. And whether you prefer a thin, delicate band or a wider, more sustantial one, we can accommodate you there as well.
Ok, so I had this idea for a very unique engagement ring for my fiance', and I looked around a *lot*, searching for a jeweler who would be able to make the ring I wanted. I looked up many jewelers who did custom work, and what initially impressed me here was the work that I saw on Joseph's website (and the reviews didn't hurt either). The first positive thing was speaking with Joseph directly. This is definitely not a shop which just bears an absent owner's name. When I spoke with Joseph, he was the first jeweler who expressed no hesitation about being able to meet my design goals (and they were fairly unique). I then emailed him more details and we talked about materials, design options and price. The next positive thing was that Joseph asked for a very reasonable deposit to begin the design process (which in this case involved CAD/CAM). From my perspective, giving a small deposit is actually a good sign - it lets the jeweler know I'm serious, and pays for his time going through various design iterations without me having to be locked into something that may ultimately not be what I'm looking for. At this point, I want to point out something to be aware of with Joseph Jewelry. They did push a bit for extravagance and "bling". Probably from their experience, the more a ring pops and sparkles, the happier many brides-to-be are. This is in no way a bad thing, but something to be aware of - definitely don't be afraid to say what you want! After going back and forth a bit and settling on the basic design idea, Joseph put me in the very capable hands of Bonnie, who began in earnest mocking up designs and working with me to figure out the specifics of the ring. Everything from the stone size, to the design of the shoulder area, and the unique element for my particular ring (sorry, no pics, but it involves a part of the ring moving). With a lot of back and forth with Bonnie, we finally settled on the ultimate design, which I have to say, was stunning. After getting the design done, and getting the ring built, I shipped my diamond to Joseph (they do, of course, sell diamonds too, but I had the diamond I wanted to use) and they fit it perfectly. I sent them a check and they shipped me the ring, and it was just that easy. Two more things to be aware of. First, the ring I had made is, based on appraisals and materials (and of course my own opinion), a pretty high quality piece. But it's not the cheapest. You get what you pay for, part of which is real workmanship, and people who know their craft. Second, my now wife tells me how each and every day, she looks at her ring, she cannot help but smile. Few days go by where a new person who sees her ring for the first time comments on how amazing it is. Five stars.
