What our customers say

"Maria was amazing at helping guide me through the whole experience of designing a custom engagement ring for my fiance. The process from concepts through to design, modelling and finishing was a dream and the finished ring is simply stunning. I would definitely recommend Maria for anyone not knowing where to start in getting a one of a kind engagement ring made." Andrew B.

"My husband and I got our bespoke wedding bands designed by Maria and we could not recommend her enough. We had a tight time scale due to a surprise honeymoon and she did everything possible to make sure they were ready for us. The service, quality and efficiency were all so above and beyond from the minute we first spoke to the final rings. She was an honest dream to work with for something so special, and her other products are so divine we will definitely be back!" Melissa L.

 

"I approached Maria with a loose concept of what I wanted for an engagement ring. She was wonderful to work with and took my ideas on board and it was a collaborative process made easy with her vision and approach; not to mention the number of incredible gemstones we had to work with! I'm really happy with the result, having struck a perfect balance of timeless elegance and contemporary design. My fiancé absolutely loves it and gets daily comments and compliments."  Jason R.

"I asked Maria to redesign a sapphire ring given to me by a close relative. Maria understood the sentimental value of the ring and took the time to discuss my preferences. She presented me with different design options that stayed true to what I loved about the ring. I am so thrilled with the end result and love wearing it. Thank you, Maria, for the truly personal service." Lauren W.

 

"Bought an amazing citrine ring 18 months ago from Maria. Promised myself I would buy some earrings when I finished up working. well that day has come. I purchased a beautiful set of Amazon earrings. Just love Maria's designs and the stones are truly special. Such unique special jewellery that will be treasured for many years to come." Nancy C.

I am proud to wear Lizunova Fine Jewels for every occasion and I am beyond thrilled to be in collaboration with Maria Lizunova to empower the next generation and break the cycle of domestic violence at a grassroots level."

"Really beautiful jewellery and the quality is great. My wife loves her custom made necklace and earrings from Lizunova. I have to say that customer service was great, Maria went above and beyond what I expected." George K.

 

"Maria and her team did the most amazing job on my wedding ring. Over the years it had become unstable and needed remaking. Maria advised the best course of action and a very reasonable price and then proceeded with the work - delivering back a ring I am just thrilled with (I actually like it better than the original one). I wouldn't hesitate to recommend Lizunova Fine Jewels."  Nikla M.

 

“I have had two beautifully designed and crafted bespoke rings made for me by Maria at Lizunova – the first based on one of the available designs and the second designed and made for me around two gorgeous jewels Maria sourced. The whole experience was special – from discussions around my preferences, to choosing the stones and watching Maria come up with design ideas, to being kept informed throughout the process. I was never pushed, only guided, and am so pleased with the results. Truly special pieces my partner and I simply love.” Sue dB.

Ring sizes

We use Australian ring size measurements, which are in an alphabetical range from A-Z.

As your fingers contract and expand due to the temperature, humidity, exercise, etc, your ring will fit on your finger tighter or looser. Your ring should fit comfortably and you need to find a balance between too big and too small. It is recommended that you should have to push your ring on tightly over your knuckle and it should spin slightly around the base of your finger. There should be some resistance when the ring is taken off – this will help to keep the ring on when your fingers are cold or wet. The correct size is the one that you feel the most confident and comfortable with.

We suggest that you size the finger you intend to wear your ring on at room temperature – this should provide you with a size that should be close to perfect most of the time.

Top-heavy rings can tend to spin on your finger, as the base of your finger is usually thinner than your knuckle. We suggest when sizing your finger for a top-heavy ring, that you err on the tighter side, rather than a loose fit. This will mean that the ring will stay on the top of your finger and it will ultimately be more comfortable to wear.

If you’re choosing a wide ring, you will tend to go up a size. There is more surface area on a wider ring and therefore more metal to grip to your finger.

If you are interested in a ring that is 5mm or wider, we suggest going up a size (one size larger than the sizing gauge). We suggest going up another size if the ring you are interested in is 9mm or larger (two sizes larger than the sizing gauge).

If you are buying a ring as a gift for someone, we recommend that you measure the inside diameter of a ring the person you’re buying the gift for, regularly wears on the finger your gift will be worn on.

Measuring your finger

If you do not know your ring size you can use this guide to obtain an approximate measurement.

Before measuring the finger on which the ring you’re purchasing will be worn, please ensure the following:

The number that lines up with edges of the opening is the ‘interior circumference’. Please note this number and then refer to our Ring Size Chart to choose the correct ring size.

If you do not know your ring size you can use this guide to obtain an approximate measurement.

If you have a ring that is worn on the finger you need sizing, print out the ring size guide (take care to print it at 100%), and place the existing ring over the circles. Measure the inside of the ring against the outside of the circle. If you can hardly see the black line which goes around each circle, you have chosen the right size. Compare the ring to the adjacent circles to check that you definitely have the right size.

You can then double check this measurement by measuring the inside diameter of the ring, and matching that against the ring diameter measurements shown.

Alternatively, if you don’t have a ring available, you can measure the finger itself to obtain an approximate ring size. You can do so by wrapping a piece of string or thin strip of paper around the finger on which you wish to wear the ring, marking it with a pen where it overlaps. Measure the piece of string with a ruler to obtain the circumference of the finger, and compare that to the European Size measurement shown on the chart. We would recommend that in order to obtain the most accurate measurement when taking your ring size in this way, you do so at the end of the day when the finger is at its largest, and not when your hands are unusually cold as this would lead to a smaller ring size.
