Hi, I am speaking as a larger sized finger person who loves rings, I
can’t tell you the amount of times I would have bought a ring if it
just slipped on my finger.
People with slim fingers have endless rings to choose from, and if
you are smart enough to make larger size rings and advertise it on
your booth or wherever you market your pieces I can almost guarantee
that you will always sell the larger sized rings. And remember bigger
ladies don’t always like big garish rings.
I went searching Tucson one year for a ring for a friend of mine who
has the same sized finger as me and as soon as I happened to stumble
upon a booth holder who had one to fit I bought it, didn’t even
bargain the price.
Plus you can always market the larger sized ones for the middle
finger which is very fashionable for the larger stones to be set
into. I see a lot of people wearing one large ring like this and a
big chunky cuff.
The same goes for necklaces or those cords some are just that little
bit too small and if you have a few at least in the larger sizes I
think you will sell them as quick if not quicker than the small ones.
Ditto for those cuff bracelets that are all the rage, go and look and
see if anyone is making larger ones you will have to search around
So please consider the larger framed people out there, they are
usually better customers to boot. They are so happy that something
fits right off the rack, I think there is more money to be made out
there if you have some of your range in the larger sizes.
Very few watches are made with that extra inch or so on the band
either unless you go into the men’s sections of watches.
Any one have any feedback on this? It would be interesting to hear
your experiences on this size issue.
I know it works in the clothing industry, I worked in retail and if
we had larger sized clothing these customers would always buy more
than one of items that fit, same goes for ladies larger sized shoes.
You will find the shop owner will only get a couple of sized 10 and
10.5 in a whole box of shoes and they are the first to go.
Sorry to ramble on but I think this is a subject that is not
