Find Ring Size

How To Find Your Ring Size 
Certain factors need to be considered when measuring your fingers and to get the right ring size. The perfect ring size should fit comfortably on your finger in a way that it fits snuggly enough and not fall off or simply slide out of it.

Here are the factors that need to be considered to get an accurate ring size measurement:

Do not measure your fingers when you feel cold as our finger size is smaller in cold temperatures but swells in heat. Pregnancy and athletic work outs also can cause our fingers to puff up.

The ring size on your left hand is different from your right hand. When measuring for a ring, do not assume that the measurement on your left ring finger will fit perfectly to your right ring finger.

The right measurement not only needs to fit comfortably on the place where a ring sits but it should also fit snuggly over your knuckle. Not too loose that it falls off easily but also not too tight that you’ll have to go great lengths just to take the ring off.

Ways to Find Your Ring Size:

Finding your ring size in the comforts of your home is possible.

Here are some easy steps to follow in measuring your ring size at home:

Using a String or Piece of Paper

You can choose either tailors tape, a strip of paper preferably ¼ inch wide and about 4 inches long or you may also use a string. You’ll also need a tape and a marker.

  1. Tape one end of the paper to your knuckle part then wrap the paper around your finger. If you’re using tailors tape, mark your starting point with the marker. Make sure that there’s enough room for it to pass over your knuckles and to do that more accurately, If you’re using tailors tape.
  2. Mark the other end of the paper that meets the taped end/ the point where the paper overlaps and where it forms a complete circle.
  3. Using a ruler, measure the length of the strip of paper from the starting end with a tape up to the other end with a mark. In other terms, measure the entire length of the paper that forms a ring or where it overlaps or meets around your finger.
  4. Compare your measurement with the table below. 
  5. We suggest that you tape the two meeting ends together so it forms a paper ring. Once done, try to put on the paper ring to your measured finger and try to remove it. We also would recommend to do this kind of measuring at least twice to make sure you got your ring size correctly.

Using an Existing Ring

This is another way of measuring your ring size and really does work provided that the existing ring fits perfectly. Simply print the table below and make sure that you got the right scale by matching on the millimeter size on the chart with any measuring device like a tailor’s tape or ruler. Scale it until you get the right size on the print. Ring Size Convert

There are different ways to find your ring size using the chart above provided you have the right scale:

  1. Measure the inside diameter or distance across of the ring you currently have in millimeters and find the nearest measurement on the table.
  2. Another way is to simply place the ring over the nearest size circles. Make sure that the inner edge of your ring aligns with the outer edge of the printed circle.
