Figuring out your ring size is fairly easy to do and doesn’t even need a special trip to a jeweler. Below is a handy tool – thanks to Anna De Souza at Today – to measure your finger or to measure another ring.
A few tips before you size:
- Use a thin strip of paper instead of string or ribbon. String or ribbon could stretch, giving an incorrect measurement.
- Decide which finger you are going to wear the ring(s) on. The fingers on your dominant hand could be as much half a size larger than your non-dominant hand’s fingers. Also, take into account knuckles – if you have large knuckles, you might want to size up instead of trying to wrench your ring over the knuckle.
- Take your measurement at the end of the day. Just like trying on shoes later in the day, your fingers will have had time to settle into their size.
- Make sure your hands are warm too. Cold fingers might shrink in size and give you a too snug fit when they’re warm.
- Your ring size can change with fluctuations in weight – during pregnancy, with water retention, while taking medications, etc,.
Find ring size from your finger
- Cut a thin strip of paper.
- Wrap it around the base of the finger you’re planning on wearing the ring.
- Mark where the paper overlaps with a pen and measure the length in millimeters.
- Click on the link below and print the ring guide to scale.
- Use a calculator to divide the length you measured by 3.14. That number will correspond with a ring size on the chart.
(For example: If you measured 60 mm around your finger, you’ll get 19 mm. Find that number on the chart and it’s a size 9.)
Find ring size from another ring
- click on the link below and print the ring chart. Be sure to print it to scale.
- Line the ring up against the size on the chart. The ring should cover the line so that the outside of the black circle touches the inside of the ring.
