What sizes should prototype rings be


#1

So I am just starting out trying to sell my work (I am trying out
Etsy). I would love to come up with designs that might sell but I
keep getting caught up in what sizes are good to do the first
prototype. Mainly my concern is around rings but I would love advice
on the right sizes to make bracelets as well.

I am all for reproducing designs with sizes specific to the
purchaser. I would how ever like to see the prototype/first one sell
as well. I can’t really afford to build pieces just have them not be
worn :frowning:

Thanks for the advice,
Eric

Then you should build capital until you can afford that. You can’t
run a jewelry business without inventory.

Eric- The contemporary standard sizes for rings is Lady’s size 7
Men’s size 10.

In the old days it was size 6 for ladies.

Linked or flexible bracelets 7 inches for women and 8-9 inches for
men.

Have fun and make lots of jewelry.

Uh, We run a jewelry business without inventory. Well, we do have
maybe 6 pieces total. And we are doing just fine thank you very much.

Ring sizes in Australia- wedding ring finger M,N, O most common for
women. But what the heck I have made K to Z + 1. Good luck mate as
time of day and temperature can alter finger sizes. Best hint make
them in your partner’s size for the prototype. She will love to show
off your designs.

Wonderful! I believe you do mostly custom, correct? I understood the
poster to be interested in doing craft fairs or selling on etsy,
both of which would require more than 6 pieces.
