How To Measure Ring Size With a Ruler, String and Paper

If you’re buying for someone else, the best way to find their ring size is to ask. If you’re preparing a surprise, get advice from colleagues and family. They can ask without raising an eyebrow. The typical ring size available for women varies from size 3 to size 9. The most ordinarily purchased women’s rings range between size five and size 7. Size 6 is the most common. The usual ring size possible for men differs from size 6 to size 13. The most ordinarily purchased men’s ring sets range between size 8 to 10-½. Size 9 is the most common. These usual ring sizes can help guide you in the right place. If you do not see the size you need, contact our experts for help placing a particular order. There are also several at-home methods to find your ring size.

Measure Your Ring Size With These Steps:

  1. Cover string or paper around the base of your finger.
  2. Mark the spot where the ends meet with a pen.
  3. Measure the string or paper with a ruler (mm).
  4. Select the nearest measurement on the size graph to find your ring size.

More Ring Sizes Tips:

  1. Measure the center of another ring that fits using a tape measure and our printable size.
  2. The ring should suit your finger easily: snug so it won’t fall off but loose enough to slide over your knuckle with relative ease.
  3. When the knuckle is more significant than the finger’s base, measure both places and pick a size between the two.
  4. Measure your ring size at the end of the day when your fingers are warm. Finger size changes depending on the time of day and the weather, and your fingers are more minor in the early morning and cold weather. Also, keep in mind that the fingers on your dominant hand are usually bigger.
  5. Measure 3 to 4 times for more accuracy.

What Happens When My Ring Is Resized?

To make sure you get the best possible fit, the ring resizing process requires adding or removing small numbers of metal depending on the difference between the size purchased and the new size inquired. As a result, your ring may be somewhat thicker or thinner after resizing. Specific tiny changes are often visually hidden.

The specialist jewelry makers at McGee Company adhere to strict quality measures, so your resized ring both sparkles and fits wonderfully. After the band is resized, each ring gets cleaned and polished before being delivered to you.

What If I Order The Wrong Ring Size?

Don’t let the issue of size stress you out. McGee Company provides complimentary resizing for most engagement rings and wedding bands within the manufacturer’s advised sizing range during the first year. If you need another ring, we offer a 30-day replacement policy for your convenience.

Rings That Can’t Be Resized

Some of our ring styles cannot be resized due to their design. In these cases, an icon will appear on the merchandise detail page under the ring size range.

For example, diamond and gemstone eternity rings with a particular number of gemstones per finger size, milgrain or ornate bands, silver rings, or rings with alternative alloys such as Tungsten cannot be resized.

We are happy to replace your ring with another ring in the correct size within 30 days of purchase. It is essential to note that should you opt for a replacement, and your new ring may include fewer or more gemstones, diamonds, or a decrease or increase inexpensive metal weight, which may cause an increase or reduction in the price.
