How do I know what ring size to order? Championship rings by design are generally larger than traditional jewelry, and as a result, they feature wider bands which affect fit. It is common to find that your finger size for a championship ring is different than your finger size for a traditional ring. Also keep in mind that every hand is different, and your finger size can vary from hand to hand. A good guideline is to start with at least 1 finger size larger than any current jewelry you own.

Please consider which hand and which finger you intend to wear your ring on. Championship rings are traditionally worn on the right hand, but your selection is entirely up to you. When making your decision, please consider that wearing a championship ring on your middle finger may be more comfortable in terms of balance due to size and weight of ring.

If you do not know your size, you have five (5) business days to call Jostens customer service with your size at 1-800-854-7464, Monday-Friday, from 9:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. The Tampa Bay Sports store at AMALIE Arena has ring sizers so you can determine your ring size.
