We prepared a ring sizing guide because buying a ring will be one of the most significant purchases of your life and you need to find the perfect fit. Having your finger professionally measured by a local jeweler is the most reliable way to determine your ring size, but this guide offers helpful tips on how to find out the right size with ease from the comfort of your own home.
We recommend measuring your finger or ring multiple times to ensure the accuracy of your ring sizing. Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle with some resistance.
Measure a Ring You Already Own
A simple way to get the ring sizing done is by measuring the inner diameter of a ring that fits on the intended finger. Find the measurement in the conversion chart.
Measure Your Finger
Use a measuring tape, a piece of string, ribbon, floss, or a strip of paper to measure your finger. Wrap it around the base of your finger, marking where the string or floss first overlaps with a pen. Then, line it up with a ruler, take down its length in millimeters, and look up the measurement on the chart to find the corresponding ring size.
When measuring your finger, the most important thing is to consider your knuckle, as it is usually the widest part – this is essential when doing ring sizing. Cold weather can cause your fingers to shrink a bit, while heat, medication, or illness can cause the fingers to swell. The best time to measure your finger at the end of the day and when your hands are warm.
Use a Ring Sizer
Silicone ring sizers are inexpensive and there are many options online. Make sure you do not pull the sizer too tightly as this will give you the wrong size. The sizer should slide over your knuckle comfortably.
Do Ring Sizing in Secret
When you are trying to keep the ring a surprise for your loved one and you do not know their ring size, take one of their rings and slide it onto your finger. Make a little mark with a pen where the ring goes up to on your finger and measure the circumference. If you know your loved one will not miss their ring for a day or two, you can also simply take it to a local jeweler to have it sized, or measure the inner diameter yourself, then sneakily put the ring back before they notice it is missing.
In Between Sizes when Ring Sizing?
If your measurement is in between sizes, we recommend ordering up. Wide shank rings and ring sets with two or three bands will fit a bit tighter, so we recommend choosing half a size larger than your normal ring size. When buying a ring, consider the band’s design – full eternity and textured bands cannot be resized and will have to be remade.
