Important about Sizing
As it is a medium width band ring at 5.2mm in height, it will fit slightly tighter than a regular width band ring. We recommend to go half a size up your usual size. This ring is a US 6.5 but will fit like a US 6.
Note: Please note that as the diamonds are foiled, it is advisable that the piece does not get wet or exposed to water. It can be gently cleaned by wiping it down with a wrung out damp cloth.
