How to Measure Your Ring Size at HomeUpdated 2 months ago

Measuring your finger for a ring can seem tricky, but with the right tools and this straightforward guide, you'll find your perfect size from the comfort of your home. Before you start, remember that fingers can swell from heat, cold, or water retention, so for the best accuracy, measure your finger at the end of the day when it is likely to be at its largest.

What You'll Need:

  • A piece of string, dental floss, or a thin strip of paper
  • A ruler
  • A pen or marker

Steps to Measure Your Ring Size:

  1. Prepare Your Measuring Tool:

    • Cut a thin strip of paper, string, or use a piece of dental floss. Make sure it’s long enough to wrap around your finger.
  2. Wrap It Around Your Finger:

    • Wrap the paper, string, or floss around the base of the intended finger. For accuracy, the band should be snug; too tight will give a size that's too small, too loose, and the ring may slip off.
  3. Mark the Spot:

    • With the pen, mark where the end of the string or paper first overlaps.
  4. Measure the Length:

    • Lay your measuring tool flat on a ruler and measure the distance to the mark in millimeters. This measurement is the circumference of your finger.
  5. Find Your Ring Size:

    • Use the ring size chart at the end of this article to convert your measurement to the standard ring size. If you're between sizes, it's best to go with the larger size.  

Tips for Accurate Measurement:

  • Measure Several Times: To ensure accuracy, measure your finger 2-3 times at different times of the day.
  • Consider the Ring Width: Wider bands may require a larger size. If you’re planning to wear a ring wider than 6mm, consider going one size up.
  • Account for Knuckle Size: If your knuckle is significantly larger than the base of your finger, measure both the knuckle and the base, and choose a size in between.

Ring Size Chart

Once you have measured the circumference of your finger using the method described, you can refer to this ring size chart to find your corresponding ring size. Remember, this chart is a guideline, and sizes can vary slightly between different jewelers.

Ring Size Chart:

Circumference (mm)US Ring Size

Using the Chart:

  • Find Your Measurement: After measuring the circumference of your finger, locate the closest measurement in the "Circumference (mm)" column of the chart.

  • Identify Your Ring Size: The corresponding number in the "US Ring Size" column is your ring size.

Tips for Using the Chart:

  • If your measurement falls between two sizes, choose the larger size for a more comfortable fit.
  • Keep in mind that most people have slightly different sized fingers on their left and right hands, so measure the specific finger on which you plan to wear the ring.
  • For wider bands (over 6mm), consider choosing one size larger than what the chart indicates for you.

With this chart and the measurement method provided, you're all set to accurately determine your ring size at home. Happy ring shopping!
