CHART OF RING SIZE
HOW TO MEASURE THE SIZE OF A RING AT HOME
Are you concerned about how you will measure your ring size at home?
Don’t get too worked up just yet. There are several approaches you can take to learn how to measure the ring size. We’ve also included a ring sizing chart.
How to Calculate:
Make a string about 6 inches long. Wrap the string around the base of your finger, just below your knuckle. With the pen, mark the end of the string. Place the measured string on the ruler, with the area marked on the right side. The number closest to the pen mark represents the ring’s circumference in millimeters. To convert the measurements into a ring size, use the ring size chart above.
APPLY A STRIP OF PAPER:
You will need the following items to measure the ring size with a strip of paper:
A piece of paper
Cut a 4-inch long thin strip of paper. Fold the thin strip of paper around the base of your finger, close to your knuckle. Make a mark at the point where the two ends of the paper strip meet. To calculate the circumference, use the ruler to measure the length in millimeters. Using the ring size chart below, convert the measurement to the appropriate ring size.
USE A RING THAT IS PERFECT FOR YOU.
You will need the following items to measure the ring size using a ring that fits:
A ring at home that fits the finger on which the engagement ring will be worn
Measure the ring’s inside diameter (the hole inside the ring, excluding the metal).
Make a note of this measurement in millimeters, and then use the conversion chart above to determine your ring size.
Ring Size Measuring Tip: If you’re in doubt about your ring size, go up a size. Check that your finger is at room temperature; fingers can shrink or expand when cold or hot. If your knuckle is significantly larger than the base of your finger, take two separate measurements and choose a size in between. A ring should fit snugly enough so that it does not fall off. You want a ring that fits over your knuckle but isn’t too loose that it shifts around.
What if I followed all of the steps above but still can’t figure out my ring size?
Don’t worry if you’ve followed all of the above steps and your ring size still isn’t right!
Please keep in mind that the average ring size for men is 10.0, while the average ring size for women is 7.0.
