Measuring for the perfect ring size

Jewelry Size Guide Reference

Determining your ring size

Use a measuring tape or a strip of paper to measure the base of your finger. Consult the International Ring Sizing chart above to determine what size ring to buy.

  • Round up if necessary
  • Measure at the end of the day, preferably in warm temperatures
  • If your knuckle is bigger than the base of your finger, measure both to get an average size 

What do the fingers symbolize in crystal healing?

Are you considering using your gemstone rings for crystal healing purposes? Think about what each finger represents and to which chakras they are connected. This will guide you in your choices. 

Thumbs 

Wearing crystals on your thumbs boasts your unique style, the very thing that makes you, "you". It is the finger symbolizing your deepest wishes and desires. Let the dreams come to light. Choose a large statement ring like Dendritic Agate or Leopard Jasper to show off your bold personality and manifest your goals.

The thumbs are connected with your Sacral and Root Chakras. This is your connection with the earthly world and your physical manifestation in this lifetime. It is where you express yourself creatively and actively as a human being. 

Index Fingers 

Also known as the pointer fingers, your index fingers represent your path in life. They literally point you in the right direction if you listen to your intuition.

The index fingers are connected with your knowing soul, your subconscious, the Crown and Third Eye Chakras. Wear spiritual rings like Amethyst or Blue Kyanite here form an eternal connection with your Higher Self.

Middle Fingers

Being front and center, the middle finger is all about your personal power; the way you present yourself to the world. If you want to emerge from an introverted personality, focus on wearing crystal healing rings at the middle finger.

Often associated with the Throat Chakra and the Solar Plexus Chakra, the middle finger has a direct connection to your communication and emotional centers. Wear blue rings like Blue Lace Agate or Turquoise to boost your self-expression. Wear rings like Citrine or Tigers Eye to boost your self-esteem. 

Ring Fingers 

All about love, commitment, and friendships, it is believed that your ring finger is directly connected to your heart. Even if you don't know much about rings, you know that the ring finger is reserved for promise rings, engagement rings and wedding rings- all symbols of eternal bonds. 

Wear pink and green gemstones on the ring finger to promote a healthy Heart chakra. Consider Malachite rings to remove emotional traumas or Rose Quartz rings to open yourself up to appreciating the beauty in the world. 

Pinky Fingers

This little finger completes the power of your hands. It is a delicate, fun-loving companion to your other fingers. You want to choose small crystals for the pinky finger that will complement the healing rings you may be wearing on your other fingers.

For example, if you are wearing a Malachite ring to concentrate on digging out the emotional traumas of your heart, you may want to wear a Rose Quartz ring at the pinky to balance out Malachite's aggressive energies. This way you won't feel so overwhelmed should you have a lot of baggage coming up to the surface!

Can I wear rings on both hands? 

Yes! You can wear rings on both hands; even all ten fingers at once if you are so inclined. Here at Satin Crystals, we believe in wearing as many rings as you are inspired to wear. 

If you are looking to wear rings for crystal healing intentions, pay attention to which hand you are using: 

  • Your dominant hand (right hand if you are right-handed) is your transmitting hand, this is the hand that gives out energy

  • Your non-dominant hand is your receiving hand, this is the hand that takes in energy to your body

Here are some real-life examples of putting the crystal healing hand into practice:

Dominant Hand

  • You want to get rid of your excess yang or aggressive energies: Wear a Jasper ring on your dominant hand. 

  • You want to amplify your healing energies during a metaphysical practice: Wear a Quartz ring on your dominant hand. 

  • You you want to unblock your creative energies and let them  flow freely: Wear a Carnelian ring on your dominant hand. 

Non-dominant Hand

  • You want to transmute negative energies into positive before they reach your body: Wear an Obsidian ring on your non-dominant hand. 

  • You want to infuse your nerves with soothing energies: Wear a Moonstone ring on your non-dominant hand. 

  • You want to go deep into a hypnotic state in meditation: Wear an Amethyst ring on your non-dominant hand. 

wearing chunky ringsWhen should I wear my chunky crystal rings?

Big chunky crystal rings are also known as statement rings. By wearing them, you are making a statement about your healing intentions and your quirky personality.

Statement rings are meant to be worn where they can be admired by all, be it a cocktail party, a fancy dinner or a jet setting trip to an exotic country. 

When choosing to wear chunky crystal rings for healing purposes, they are excellent for meditating, chakra balancing and manifesting your desires. 

Wear your chunky statement ring on your middle finger for a balanced impact, on your index finger to show off your confidence or on your thumb to be unique. 

Depending on your comfort level, it may be a little hard to wear chunky rings while doing manual labor or computer work. But, for those of you who are accustomed to large jewelry, your statement rings may feel like an extension of your digits. You excel over the rest of us who can't do our chores in pretty rings.
