Types of Rings in Our Collection
In the John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry collection, you'll find two types of rings:
- Band rings are produced from a circle of precious metal that has been shaped and textured with hand tools. These rings may be worn by men or by women and are often chosen as wedding bands and other special occasions or symbolic rings. Thinner styles can be stacked and worn together for a layered look.
- Gemstone rings feature a precious or semiprecious stone that has been placed inside of a setting. The setting may be round in shape and raised up over the sides of the gem to hold it in place. This is called a bezel set gemstone ring. Alternatively, the ring may have small fingers called prongs that hold the gemstone in place.
Choosing the Right Ring Size
All of the rings in the John S. Brana Handmade Jewelry collection are sized, meaning that they will fit a finger of a specific size. Sized rings can typically be adjusted slightly by a professional jeweler, but most professionals cannot adjust a ring up or down more than half or a whole size. This makes it important that you select the right ring size for your needs. A simple way to do so is to tie a string around your finger and then cut it at the spot where it crosses over. Measure the length of the string and then use an online converter or contact us for assistance converting the length to the ring size.
