We’ll go over everything you need to know about ring sizing so you can find the perfect one without even needing to leave your seat!   

Let’s get started!    

Measuring Tips and Prepping

There are various factors that can affect the size of your fingers. The below tips will help you measure your fingers accurately.

 

1. Measure at the end of the day
Your fingers are most likely to be at its largest at the end of the day.   
    2. Don’t forget about your knuckle

    Allow enough room for your knuckle. If your knuckle is a lot larger than the base of your finger, measure both areas and choose a size in between the two.

      3. Measure the exact finger where you will wear the ring

      The fingers on your dominant hand are usually slightly larger than your non-dominant hand. The same fingers on opposite hands may not always be the same size. It is important that you measure the exact finger which you will wear the ring.

        4. Temperature and diet can affect your finger size

        Cold weather can shrink your fingers, whereas heat and high-sodium foods can make your fingers swell.

          5. Try multiple times

          There are so many factors that can alter the sizing of your fingers. You can ensure accuracy with your measurement if you measure three or four times during the course of the day.     

            Method 1: Measure an Existing Ring

            Measure the internal diameter of an existing ring that fits the desired finger. 

            Take your measurement and compare it with our guide below to find the correct size.

            Method 3: Use a String or a Piece of Floss

            Don’t have an existing ring you can measure? No problem.  
            Take a piece of string or a piece of dental floss and wrap it around the base of the desired finger. 
            With a pen or marker, mark the spot where overlap occurs.  
            Place measured string against a ruler or measuring tape with millimetre measurements.   
            Compare it with our guide below to find the correct size.   
            Outer Circumference:

            Method 4: Purchase Your Own Ring Sizer

            Still unsure about your size after trying out the first three methods? Then you may want to look into buying a ring sizer. 
            For only a few dollars, you can get a plastic measuring-tape that looks like a mini belt for your finger.
            TIP
            A ring sizer is a sliding arrow marker that you can use on any finger to measure ring size.   

            Is My Ring Fitting Properly?

            So now you’ve got your right measurements and have placed your order.  Your next step is to make sure that the ring is fitted correctly.   

            The ring should fit snugly on your finger so that it doesn’t fall off. At the same time, it should be able to come off the knuckle area without much resistance.

            What if I Still Have the Wrong Size?
