 A Note About Ring Sizing
Most Hopi rings are wider than traditional wedding bands and the similar ring styles many of us are accustomed to wearing.
As a result, for a comfortable fit, it is usually necessary to order a larger ring size than when shopping at the local jewelry store.
How much larger depends upon the width of the Hopi band you are selecting. 
As a general rule, for a Hopi band ring:
1/4" in width, an eighth to a quarter ring size larger is usually sufficient 
3/8" in width, requires one quarter to one half ring size larger
1/2" in width requires a minimum of one half ring size larger
