A Guide for How to Measure Your Ring Size at Home

Wearing a ring that doesn't fit properly can be extremely uncomfortable. Not to mention, it can also damage the ring itself if it's constantly slipping off or getting caught on things. That's why it's important to know your ring size before purchasing a ring.

Fortunately, measuring your ring size at home is a simple process. In this guide, we'll walk you through the steps to do it. So whether you're buying your first ring or need to update your current size, follow these instructions, and you'll be good to go!

 

Ring Size Chart


1. How to Measure Ring Size with String

Place a piece of non-stretchable string or thread around your finger might seem a little bit odd, but it's actually a great way to find out your ring size. Just wrap the measuring material around the broadest part of your finger and make sure it is not too tight or loose. You can mark where the ends meet with a marker and measure the length with a ruler. Look at the Ring Size Chart above and find the closest number to your measurement.

 

2. How to Find Out Your Ring Size Using Paper

One of the easiest ways to find your ring size is by using a piece of paper. Cut out a strip from an ordinary sheet. Wrap it around your finger and mark where the ends meet with a pencil or pen. Make sure to keep the strip of paper close to your knuckle. Unroll the wrapping material and place it against a ruler or measuring tape. Look at the ring sizing chart and find the closest number to your measurement.

 

3. How to Measure Ring Size with a Ring

Take a ring that fits you perfectly. Place the perfectly sized ring on top of the circles indicated on the ring sizing chart. If the circle is barely visible after placing your ring on top of it, it is your ring size. If no size matches up perfectly, your ring size is probably between two sizes.

 

4. Purchase a Ring Sizer

If you don't have a ring that fits you perfectly or want to make sure you get the right size, you can always use a ring sizer. Ring sizing is an easy process and only takes a few minutes. Plus, it's a great way to double-check your work if you're unsure of your size.

To use a ring sizer, place the sizer on your finger and adjust it until it's snug but not too tight. Once you have the sizer in the right spot, look at the number that lines up with the edge of the sizer. This measurement is your ring size.


QUICK TIPS

 

While ring sizing may seem like an easy task, there are a few tricks to ensure the most precise measurement.

Here are some things to keep in mind when measuring your ring size:

*Body Temperature can affect your ring size; cold fingers shrink, and hot fingers enlarge; make sure to measure your finger at room temperature for the most accurate reading.

*Time of day is another factor that can affect the accuracy of your ring size. In the morning, fingers are the smallest. So, avoid measuring at this time since sizing up a ring is a much more costly option than sizing a ring down. The best time of day to measure your fingers is at night — when they are slightly larger — to ensure a comfortable fit.

*Measure your ring size more than once. Before deciding on the final ring size, we encourage you to measure at least 3-4 times using the ring size measurement chart. Record your ring measurement, repeat the process and compare measurements to find the most accurate ring size.

 

WRAPPING UP

 

Measuring your ring size at home is a simple and easy process. Just make sure to measure your finger a few times to get an accurate reading. And if you're unsure of your ring size, always err on the side of caution and go with the larger size. After all, it's much easier (and cheaper) to resize a ring that's too big than it is to resize one that's too small.
