Why we love her: Since she started making paper clothes for her sister, Katie has had an eye for fashion. After marrying into the Diamond (fate?) family of diamantaires, she started to learn the jewelry industry from the inside. What started as custom engagement rings, has led to a full collection of worldly-inspired pieces with extra edge and colorful jewels. She calls it “wearable punk.” If your style is somewhere between boho and trendy, then there’s at least a handful of pieces in Katie’s eclectic collection that will speak to you.
To determine your wrist size, wrap a sewing tape measure around the part of your wrist that you plan to wear the cuff. It should fit snug, but not tight. If you don’t have a sewing tape measure, use a piece of string or strip of paper instead, and mark where one end of the string or paper overlaps the other. Then measure that length with a ruler.
The thickness of a cuff can affect the circumference you prefer to wear. Thinner cuffs can be worn ¼” smaller in circumference, as they take up less space on your wrist.
The cuff’s opening should be about 1 inch.
If you have a ring that fits the finger you want sized, match it to one of the circles on this sizing tool to find your U.S. ring size.
You can also wrap a piece of string or strip of paper snugly, though not tightly, at the base of your finger, slightly below the middle knuckle. Mark where the string or paper meets and measure the length with a ruler, in millimeters. Look at the chart under "Inside Circumference" for your U.S. ring size.
