A ring should go over the knuckle but still be comfortable. There should be a tug to get the ring off but not fly off the knuckle with no resistance. I strongly recommend avoiding printable ring sizers or sizers that company’s mail you. Get sized locally any store, walmart, target, or mall jewelry store can quickly size you. In the industry we use an international sizing chart so you dont need to worry about sizes running big or small. The circumference and diameter from jewelry size should be the same. I would advise industry tolerance is about 1/4 size up or 1/8th size down. What can affect different ring sizes is the width of a ring. A wider ring will fit more snug than an a thinner band. Adjust accordingly. 8mm and larger should be about 1/2 size larger from what your sized on locally unless they are sizing you on the same width band your’re ordering. Good news, at Pompeii3 we offer free sizing for 3 months so if you receive a ring that does not fit perfectly simply send it back and we will take care of it. Show Pompeii3 wedding bands here.
The perfect diamond wedding ring is a ring that compliments your engagement ring. If you get something too large it will likely look un proportion.

What are clarity enhanced diamonds and why they are perfect for someone on a budget?
A clarity enhanced diamond is the one that we usually get from any jewelry store. The diamonds that are extracted from the earth’s surface have a lot of cracks and spots on them. Clarity enhancement is a process that makes these diamonds appear perfect. All the cracks inside the diamonds are filled so that the human eye cannot see them. Also, the cracks on a diamond’s surface are filled to give light space to pass through the stone, creating a fascinating visual. This treatment makes a diamond look beautiful and is not a lot different from a non-enhanced diamond.
When you are planning to get engaged or propose your loved one, you need to buy the perfect engagement ring. Diamond is the perfect stone that symbolizes eternal love. Buying a diamond involves an entire thought process as these stones are tremendously expensive. Whereas, clarity enhanced diamonds are much cheaper than non-enhanced diamonds.
If you want to propose your girl with a huge diamond but you don’t have enough money then you can get a good value for your money by purchasing a clarity enhanced diamond. A clarity enhanced diamond is cheaper and you can get a huge 1 or 2 carat stone at a lower price. These diamonds are not too different from the non-enhanced diamonds. Why not get a big stone at a reasonable price than not buying anything at all? A clarity enhanced diamond is visually appealing and crystal clear perfect for a proposal. Why waste money by buying a non-enhanced diamond when you can get a big sized diamond at a more affordable price? Do not compromise on the stone that you present to your loved one because it is the symbol of true love. Get a big sized clarity enhanced diamond to woo your partner.
