Minimum clearance between Rings and Rod

I need 2 1/2″ inside diameter curtain rings with a clip.  They all seem to come in 2 1/4″ diameters.  Does a 1/4″ make much difference?  My rod diameter is 1 3/4″ and the man who is installing the rod told me I need 2 1/2″ rings.  I also need them with clips. The rod is metal and its of a bronzy color called “Earth”.

2 1/4″ inside diameter is perfectly fine because industry standard is that the ring should be 1/2″ larger inside than the rod or pole. You could check our Renaissance Collection it that has some bronze finishes, you can view the finishes at the top of the page, the link is yellow and the inside diameter is 2″. You could also try lookin in our Villiers Collection look at the 2″ ring on the second page. If you think you can use metal rings then you could try the Iron Art Collection or SKU: 355 in particular.
