Hello, to help us non-professional jewellers and other fellow
lurkers .. OK so 21 is considered big - but what is average for
male and female. And what is the smallest ring size.. for an adult
or older child. Thanks, Saffur
Largest men's, 21.5.
Largest ladies Engagement set, 14.5.
Most stock sizes are 10-10.5 for men and 6-6.5 for ladies. The
ladies sizes is not an average size. This size will allow most women
to try the ring on and in most cases only require that a ring be
sized down, which is often easier than sizing a ring up. My guess is
that the average size of a ladies left hand ring finger is going to
be between size five and six, but, I have made them as small as size
three. As for men? I regularly see men’s wedding bands anywhere from
size eight up to an eleven. there seems to be a far greater range
The smallest ring is not determined by a size per say but by what
fits. i have made rings that required the use of a bezel mandrel
instead of a ring mandrel. I didn’t know whether I should charge
them for making a ring or a jump ring.
