  • When sizing rings for sale...

    ...do you have small, medium and large sizes or just one example and state that you make to order?

    I'm currently displaying a range or wire-wrapped rings in my local hairdressers and I'm happy to make the rings to order in any size however I think they're more of an impulse buy and being where they are I'm not sure people will bother coming back a few days later (could be wrong).

    Does anyone else sell rings like this? Is there a particularly popular size that I'm oblivious too? Or is it hit and miss?

    Any advice greatly appreciated and apologies if this has already been covered before (I did search but found nothing and it is late or early depending on how you look at it )

    People do like their rings to be a proper fit. The only way around this is to make them adjustable if your design allows for that. I find the sizes that sell most are O to P, which is about medium. In the summer, rings and bangles are what I sell most of at craft fairs as people are buying for themselves then, rather than presents. I'd say try and make one in every size from J to Q and people will snap them up.

      Thanks so much - exactly what I wanted to know. Looks like I have a lot of ring-making ahead of me.....

          Hi

          We sell most rings in sizes m -n -o -p, so if customers want an 'average' sized ring to sell on, we usually suggest one of these sizes...

                  Thanks everyone. I already have a ring gauge but I'm just worried that if you fancy a ring while you're having your haircut you want to be able to take it away there and then.

                  The advice on popular sizes is great, thanks so much x
