Measuring your ring size accurately is essential to ensure a comfortable fit for your rings. That is why we have created this guide to make it easier for you to find the perfect fit!
Here's a step-by-step guide on how to measure your ring size at home.
Measure your own ringsize
- A strip of paper or a flexible measuring tape
- A pen or pencil
Choose the Right Finger:
- Decide which finger you want to measure. Keep in mind that ring sizes may vary between fingers, so measure the specific finger you intend to wear the ring on.
Prepare the Strip of Paper:
- Cut a thin strip of paper (about 1/4 inch or 6 mm wide) or use a flexible measuring tape.
Wrap the Paper around Your Finger:
- Wrap the paper or measuring tape around the base of the chosen finger. Make sure it's snug but not too tight.
Mark the Intersection:
- Use a pen or pencil to mark where the paper or tape overlaps. Ensure that the mark is on the paper or tape, not your finger.
Measure the Length:
- Carefully remove the paper or tape from your finger and lay it flat. Use a ruler to measure the distance from the end to the marked intersection in millimeters.
Find Your Size:
- Use ruller to convert the measured length into your ring size. If using the EU size chart, then the mm will equal the size. For instance will 45mm be size 45.
Using your own ring
Using a Ring You Already Own:
If you have a ring that already fits the finger you're measuring, you can use it to determine your size. Place the ring on a ruller , aligning the inside edge of the ring with the numbers and measure the mm between each side to find the diamater.
Now compare the diameter with the size chart to find your ringsize.
- Measure your finger at the end of the day when it's likely to be at its largest.
- Ensure that the paper or tape is snug but not too tight. You should be able to slide it on and off your finger comfortably.
- Measure the same finger on both hands, as they may have slightly different sizes.
Things to consider
- As you mentioned, temperature can affect the size of your fingers. In colder weather, fingers tend to shrink, while in warmer weather, they may expand. If possible, measure your ring size in different temperatures to account for these variations.
Time of Day:
- Fingers tend to be slightly larger in the evening than in the morning. Consider measuring your ring size later in the day for a more accurate fit.
Dominant Hand vs. Non-Dominant Hand:
- The dominant hand typically has larger fingers. If you plan to wear the ring on your non-dominant hand, consider measuring that hand for a more accurate fit.
- Wider rings may feel tighter than narrower ones. When choosing a wider band, you might need a slightly larger size for a comfortable fit.
- If you plan to wear multiple rings on one finger, consider that the combined width of the rings may affect how they fit. You might need a slightly larger size for stacked rings.
