General Merchandise Information

The millimeter is our standard unit of measurement for jewelry dimensions. By using millimeters, we can provide you with the most accurate height, width and length for your jewelry. To give you a better idea of your jewelry's dimensions:

25MM is approximately 1 inch
3MM is approximately 1/8 inch
6MM is approximately 1/4 inch
13MM is approximately 1/2 inch
19MM is approximately 3/4 inch
25MM is approximately 1 inch

75MM is approximately 3 inches

All of our rings are sized to what has been determined is an average finger size. When you purchase a ring on, you will be shown the size (or sizes) in which the ring is available. If your finger is a different size, we can adjust the ring. Learn more about ring sizing.

A diamond's value is determined by its carat weight, color, cut and clarity. For further information about diamonds please refer to the 4Cs Diamond Guide.

A setting fee is assessed based on the size of the diamond and the metal type used to secure the diamond in the mounting.

White gold is pure gold that is mixed with alloys to give it a white color. Platinum is pure metal that is naturally white and much more durable and stronger than white gold.


Rubies, sapphires and emeralds are precious gemstones. All other gemstones are referred to as semi-precious.

The lab produced stone is usually free from major defects and can be structurally stronger than its natural counterpart while also achieving optimum color.
