What’s the Smallest Ring Size for an Engagement Ring or Wedding Ring?

Smallest ring sizes for tiny fingers

We are often asked how small we make our engagement rings by request. In addition, many buyers struggle when it comes to finding rings in tiny finger sizes.

Since most of our rings are made-to-order, we seldom put limits on just how small we go.

Our most popular finger size tends to be the popular size L for engagement rings and wedding rings, whilst many jewellers consider size N to be average. Smaller than J or K and you are moving towards a small finger size.

The smallest official finger size for women

Officially (look at any jeweller’s size stick) you will see ‘A’ as the smallest finger size. Realistically, this would be an infant’s ring size and not that of a grown adult. From experience, our smallest finger size produced for an engagement ring or wedding ring was sized to ‘E’ which is pretty tiny as the image below shows.

Why do some women have such small finger sizes?

This is no different from build. Some women have petite finger sizes, whilst other have larger sizes. Tall, slim women sometimes have more slender skinny fingers. This is just a matter of personal build. Even with very tiny fingers, some clients have large knuckles which can cause problems with a perfect fitting ring.

What do you do if your chosen engagement ring is not available in a small finger size?

If your chosen engagement ring or wedding ring is unavailable in a small finger size, you are welcome to send us an image. Discuss the design with our team and we can advise on how to create your ring in a petite finger size.
