  • Shopping for Plus Size Rings: Online & In-Store

    If searching for the perfect wedding and engagement rings seems like a daunting task, it’s even more challenging when you need sizes outside the limited range carried by most jewelers.

    We’ve heard this complaint from many of our couples over the years – and it’s one of the major reasons we designed our Full Brilliance Collection. It’s the first of its kind, and it features diamond engagement, bridal and trio rings crafted just for sizes 10 and up. You can find rings in your size that reflect your style, without paying inflated prices or sacrificing excellent customer service.

    But we know there are many ways to shop for engagement and wedding rings, and couples want to explore all of their options before making a decision. So the My Trio Rings team conducted online and in-store research in Summer of 2017 at several leading jewelers to help you get started – and ultimately find your perfect fit!

    Plus Size Ring Shopping Research

    Blue Nile (Normal Selection - Ladies: 9 & Men’s: 13)

    Blue Nile carries women’s and men’s rings up to size 13, but we found that most engagement rings are only offered up to size 9. When we called to ask for an engagement ring in a size 12, the representative said they have nothing in stock in that size.

    We asked about a specific style, to get a better idea of the process and pricing for ordering a custom ring in a larger size. We chose a diamond engagement ring that costs $1,485 and comes in any size between 3.5 to 8.5. When we inquired about ordering a size 12 in this style, the representative said that would entail a nonrefundable special order. It would cost 20%-40% more than the original price, and take 4 to 10 weeks to custom-make.

    Since Blue Nile had nothing in a size 12 in stock, the rep said this turnaround time would be the same for any ring they offer in this size. She said she’d email a more detailed quote within the next 5 business days. Two days later, we received the quote via email. It offered:

    • An alternative but similar setting for $790 ($140 more than the original setting in the standard size)
    Size 3.5-8.5 OnlineSize 12 Custom
    Setting$650$790
    Center Diamond$835$698*
    Total$1485$1488

    * Reversed out from Total & Setting quotes provided.

    • A 4-week turnaround to craft the ring (much better than our expectations were set)
    • Warranty condition: Over the ring’s lifetime it may only be sized up or down half a size, or the warranty will be voided

    The pricing being only $3 more for the final ring was a pleasant surprise to us, however the same center diamond strangely became more expensive in the custom ring.

    Zales (Normal Selection - Ladies: 9 & Men’s: 12)

    Zales offers women’s rings up to size 9, and men’s rings up to size 12. When we called customer service to inquire about a size 12 women’s ring, the representative recommended buying a size 9 and having it resized to a 12 in-store. We called a branch in New York City and told the sales associate we were looking for a size 12 ring. She responded, “Whoa,” (a reaction we did not appreciate) said she’d call us back; she never did.

    After that, we visited a store, and had a much better shopping experience. We asked about resizing a 1/2 carat engagement ring (available in sizes 6 to 9, priced at $1299.99) to a size 12. The sales associate was helpful, and suggested another ring that was larger but more affordable: $999.99, and 3/4 carat total weight for the bridal set. She said it was possible to order the bridal set in a size 12, but it would be nonrefundable (exchanges possible), and cost an additional $600. They indicated that they would have to custom-make a size 10 ring, then resize it to a 12 at their jeweler. The process would take about 3 to 4 weeks.

     Tiffany & Co.  (Normal Selection - Ladies: 6 & Men’s: 12)

    The representative for the Tiffany store on 5th Ave. said you must buy engagement rings in-store, and they all come in a standard size 6. If you need a different size, they can resize a ring in-store within around 3 to 4 hours.

    We asked about resizing a ring to a size 12, and the rep said that shouldn’t be a problem, though that process would go through their service center and take up to 3 days. Some of the simpler wedding bands – plain gold or featuring a few diamonds – are available in sizes 4 to 13 upon request. For more complex styles, rings are offered in sizes ranging from 6-8

    Kays (Normal Selection - Ladies: 9 & Men’s: 12)

    We emailed customer service to ask about ordering diamond engagement rings in larger sizes; the representative responded that generally these rings will go up to a size 9 or 9.5, depending on the vendor. Kays has women’s and men’s rings up to size 14. We also called customer service about buying a size 12 engagement ring, and the rep said we’d have to go in-store to do a special order.

    Walmart (Normal Selection - Ladies: 14 & Men’s: 15)

    While not known for their diamond jewelry online Walmart carries women’s rings up to size 14, and men’s rings up to size 15 (we even spotted one diamond engagement ring in a size 14.75). We attempted to call in to a local Walmart in Secaucus, New Jersey to see what sizes they carried, however were placed on hold for 30 minutes before our own patience ran out. For being the largest jeweler in the country, we’d say it’s a pretty awful and inconclusive experience.

    Super Jeweler (Normal Selection - Ladies: 9.5 & Men’s: 13.5)

    SuperJeweler features women’s rings up to size 9.5, and men’s rings up to size 13.5. The website stocks rings in a standard women’s size 7, and will adjust the ring to sizes 4 to 9 free of charge. If you need a size that isn’t in this range, you can call customer service to see if it’s possible for the ring you want.

    We called SuperJeweler about a size 12 ring in a style priced at $1299.99 and available in sizes 4 to 9.5. The representative needed to check to see if this was possible. He called back and said they could make a size 12 ring for a $100 fee. The process would take 3 to 5 days.

    Ice.com (Normal Selection - Ladies: 10 & Men’s: 15)

    Ice carries women’s and men’s rings up to size 15 from their various vendors who sell on their platform. For the women’s diamond and gold selection however most rings from size 11-15 are simple wedding bands; not traditional engagement rings. Actual engagement rings and more complex styles are available only up to sizes 10 or 11. We did find their ring filter to be very helpful in quantifying their selection at each size.

    What We Learned

    If you’re a bit exhausted after reading all this, you’re in good company! After exploring our options at many different jewelers, our main takeaway is that it is possible to find rings in larger sizes… but that it requires time and persistence and a commitment to the unknown

    • Nowhere in our research did we find a collection of rings which were designed to fit larger ring sizes.
    • The overwhelming majority of retailers seemed to offer only up to a size 9 in ladies, and larger sizes only as custom non-refundable orders.
    • For stores which did not carry larger ring sizes, the option to “size up” was offered – however the final shape and integrity of the ring after it was sized was never brought up. If Tiffany voids their warranty with only a half size change, it’s a pretty good sign that drastic sizing can impact the integrity of a ring!

    We believe there’s a better way to shop for wedding and engagement rings – whether you’re looking for a size 12 or a size 6. You shouldn’t have to choose from a limited selection and take a risk ordering a ring that fits your size.

  • How My Trio Rings Designed the Full Brilliance Collection

    We believe you should never have to sacrifice style for size – which is why My Trio Rings released the first ever plus size Full Brilliance collection which is curated specifically for ring sizes 11 and up!

    While other jewelers will just stretch existing rings to offer them in larger sizes, we design them from scratch to have a perfect look and fit. Whether you’re looking for size 12 women’s engagement rings or size 15 rings for men, you’ll find your match in the Full Brilliance collection.

    “It’s so difficult to find rings in a jewelry store if you’re above a women’s size 7,” said Ally Davis, Senior Jewelry Merchandiser. “People are being forced to fit into a standard that’s not at all reflective of real couples – size 7 is not really today’s average size. There is no one standard, ideal size; we’re changing the norm, and making beautiful wedding rings for real people.”

    At standard jewelry stores, couples looking for plus size rings usually can’t browse and order directly from the showroom. They must have rings custom-made, resulting in higher "custom" price tags and long order crafting times. For these custom orders, jewelers often build a new half-shank (the bottom half of the ring), which can cause major structural issues, like diamonds that are not properly set.

    “Our rings are significantly better in quality and appearance than those that are resized,” said Vipul Lakhi, Founder and CEO of My Trio Rings. “The diamonds are perfectly placed, and the band is never misshaped from being stretched.”

    Our Design Criteria

    Working directly with crafting floors and CAD jewelery designers, My Trio Rings curates each ring in the Full Brilliance collection to have the following design attributes:

    Extra Sparkle
    When wedding and engagement rings are sized up, they often lose the original “wow factor” because they don’t have the right ratio of diamonds to gold.  If a ring design calls for diamonds all the way across the top of the band, we add more stones to make sure the look stays the same, no matter what the size.

    Strength
    All Full Brilliance rings are substantial in weight, and offer a minimum width of 3 mm all around the band. A ring that is too thin causes weakness in the gold, and can lead to structural damage.

    Comfort
    For plus size engagement rings and wedding rings with a scoop fit – a hollow gap on the interior surface – we reinforce with a gallery of additional gold. This technique strengthens rings in wider sizes, and creates a smooth and comfortable fit.

  • Introducing the My Trio Rings Full Brilliance Collection!

    My Trio Rings is thrilled to announce the launch of our new Full Brilliance collection. We are the first diamond jeweler to design a line of engagement, bridal and trio rings crafted specifically for sizes 11 and up – and we couldn’t be more excited to share it with the world.

    Full Brilliance rings offer My Trio Rings’ signature values – exceptional quality, elegant styles and affordable prices – in women’s wedding and engagement rings, size 11 to 15, and men’s wedding rings, size 15 to 18.

    The Story Behind Full Brilliance

    For years, My Trio Rings has created collections featuring up to women’s size 13 and men’s size 16 rings. But we began to notice that other jewelers were not providing the same selection, and only narrow size ranges were available from traditional retailers. We saw this is a great opportunity to better serve all of our customers – and shake up an industry that desperately needs an update.

    “The Full Brilliance collection has evolved as we’ve gotten a lot of feedback from different couples,” said Vipul Lakhi, Chief Executive Officer.

    “We’ve heard over and over that people aren’t able to find rings in their size when they go to jewelry stores. So we started crafting rings just for sizes 11 and up. These aren’t size 7 rings that have been adjusted to fit size 11; these are especially designed to be beautiful size 11 wedding rings.”

    Shopping for wedding rings should be a joyful experience, a first step toward a shared life as a married couple. But for many couples our team has spoken to, searching for rings in jewelry stores was disappointing and disheartening.

    “They just didn’t have good options to choose from,” said Punit Shah, Chief Marketing Officer.

    “And matching rings weren’t an option because a partners’ size wasn’t offered by jewelers. All of our rings come with matching wedding rings, so couples can choose exactly what they want. We saw demand increasing over time, as more couples came in asking for plus size rings, or trio ring sets in specific sizes.”

    Why Full Brilliance Rings Stand Out

    • Rings are crafted with real diamonds and gold; you don’t have to sacrifice quality or authenticity to have a ring that fits.
    • Rings are custom-designed for sizes 11+ – they look flawless in the size you want, never stretched out, too thin on the sides or sparsely adorned with diamonds.
    • The collection showcases a huge variety of styles and price points, ensuring you find exactly what you want on your budget.
    • Streamlined production and quick turnaround guarantee you can show off your new rings in record time; even with backordered rings, the average shipping time is two weeks (compared with 4-6 with other jewelers who customize to size!)
