- A piece of string, paper, or a flexible measuring tape
- A ruler or a ring sizing chart (available online or at most jewelry stores)
- Your finger (of course!)
Step 1: Prepare the Measuring Tool
Cut a piece of string or use a flexible measuring tape and wrap it gently around the base of the finger where you intend to wear the ring. Make sure the string or tape is snug but not too tight, allowing for easy movement.
Step 2: Mark the Measurement
Use a pen or a small piece of tape to mark where the end of the string or tape meets. This point will indicate the circumference of your finger.
Step 3: Measure the Marked Length
Lay the marked string or tape flat on a ruler to measure the length in millimeters. If you used a piece of paper, place it flat and use a ruler to measure from the edge to the marked point.
Step 4: Determine Your Ring Size
Once you have the measurement in millimeters, compare it to a ring sizing chart. You can find these charts online or at most jewelry stores. Locate the measurement on the chart to identify your ring size.
- Measure your finger size at the end of the day when your fingers are at their largest due to natural swelling.
- Avoid measuring your fingers when they are too cold, as they may shrink slightly.
- If you are between sizes, it's generally best to opt for the larger size for a more comfortable fit.
Alternative Method: Using an Existing Ring
If you already have a ring that fits your finger well, you can use it to find your ring size.
Step 1: Find a Ruler
Using a ruler, measure the inside diameter of the ring in millimeters from one side to the other. Be sure to measure the widest part of the circle.
Step 2: Determine Your Ring Size
Once you have the measurement, compare it to a ring sizing chart to find your ring size.
