WHAT IS MY RING SIZE?
Choosing the right size of ring can be tricky. You want to be accurate in your measurements to avoid the need to resize. The following is a simple guide to help you determine your rings size for any ﬁnger.
How a Ring Should Fit
Your ring should ﬁt tight enough that it won’t fall of your ﬁnger, and loose enough that you can slide it over your knuckle. Make sure it feels comfortable. It shouldn’t cause you pain or leave indented markings but at the same time you want to avoid excessive slipping and sliding on the lower part of your ﬁnger.
How to MeasureYour Finger
The best way to measure your ﬁnger is to ﬁnd a perfectly ﬁtted ring you already have. Try to avoid using string or paper since these materials can expand, stretch and become twisted which will only cause an inaccurate result. Measure your ﬁnger at the end of the day when your ﬁngers feel warm. Believe it or not, our ﬁngers tend to be smaller ﬁrst thing in the morning and when they are cold to touch. To be sure you have absolute accuracy, measure your ﬁnger three to four times to be safe. Holding your ring, measure it up against the size chart we have here. Download and print it of for best results (making sure the scale is set to 0 on your printer). Match the ring you’re holding with the right size in the document. If you ﬁnd that your ring is in between sizes, select the larger of the two.
Making it a Surprise
If you’re buying a ring for your signiﬁcant other as a surprise, try asking a close friend or parent if they know his or her ring size. If not, pay particular attention to the rings he or she already wears and if there’s one on the ﬁnger you want to buy a ring for, borrow it temporarily and use our sizing chart to ﬁgure out the right measurement.
