What are Plus Size Rings?

Plus size rings are rings created to fit larger finger sizes which fall above the average finger sizes available. Many jewellers accommodate regular sizes. As a result, little attention is given to buyers looking for bigger ring sizes.

Plus Size Wedding Rings

The majority of plus size wedding rings created at Serendipity Diamonds are sizes above Z. Contact us if you cannot see your size available. Most plus size wedding rings are made by bespoke design and quoted for individually.

Visit our ring size conversion chart to get a better idea of how sizes convert. We are always happy to work to either UK or US size systems.

What are Z+ size rings?

For every size above Z, a plus symbol and number is assigned to denote an increase in size. For example, Z, Z+1, Z+2, Z+3 etc. We are able to create Z+ ring sizes to order in most precious metals. We create Z+ sizes for engagement rings and for wedding rings for men and for women.

What is the largest plus size wedding ring we have created?

Over the last decade, we have created many plus size rings. The largest we created was a wedding ring measuring size Z+8. This is by far the very largest ring we have created to date. Plus sized engagement ring

Consider the size of your gemstone

Remember that smaller diamond sizes look proportionally smaller on a large band. Diamonds 0.30 carats and below will be dwarfed by a large engagement ring band. We recommend 0.70 carats and above for larger finger sizes. Alternatively, choose a cluster with a bigger show of diamonds. Another suggestion is to choose a different gemstone. For example, a large Aquamarine will be far less costly than a big diamond.

Creating a Bespoke Plus Size Ring

Many of our plus size rings are crafted individually. In addition, our bespoke design service ensures the perfect finger size and design. Finally, our remodelling service offers a way to set existing gemstones into new items of jewellery.
