Default Ring sizes

I want to buy my girlfriend a diamond ring, she has told me her size is a size 5.
I was hoping someone may be able to tell me if ring sizes in Philippines are U.S.
or Asian sizes

Thank you
Roger

Thank you Chuck.

I want to buy the ring in Australia to take to Phil in December.

Ring sizes in Australia are letters.
U.S. size 5 is F.5
Asian size 5 is J.5

There is quite a difference and don't want to risk buying one and find it does not fit properly,
may have to wait and buy one in Phil, but will have to find somewhere that can be trusted
to sell me one with real diamonds.

Regards
Roger

Looking at the chart you gave me a link to I believe the ring would be the Asian
size 5 (J.5 Australian)

Thank you Chuck

If you are going to deliver this ring in person, keep in mind that there are many first quality jewelry stores in any of the large shopping malls in the Philippines. Fun to choose together and perhaps prices might be a bit lower here as well.

May be more fun to do it that way, then she can choose the ring she is happy with.

Thanks Jet Lag

I'll do my best to keep her happy Fred, going very well for the last 6 years with her as my girlfriend, although we have only "been together" for 18 months in Australia and Philippines.

Regardless of whether you buy alone or together with the G/F, my advice is do not buy any diamond that doesn't have a certificate of quality and authenticity issued by a reputable diamond dealer. Remember the 4 C's when buying diamonds........diamond color, diamond cut, diamond clarity, and diamond carat weight.

Have been caught out before when I bought a diamond ring in Manila China town, luckily I did not pay too much for it, I hope I'm a bit wiser now, will buy in one of the big malls.
