To get an accurate ring size is one of the most important pieces of information when placing your order. The best way to get your finger sized is to go into any jeweller’s shop or studio, and they will be able to accurately size it up for you. If you have not gotten your finger sized in a couple of years it is a good idea to get a more recent sizing. If you are unable to go see a jeweller, there are a couple ways you can get an indication of your size. If you already have a ring that fits you/ the finger you want sized, then you can just measure the Inside Diameter of your current ring with a ruler (see the illustration below).
Measure the Inside Diameter of an existing ring.
If you do not currently wear a ring that fits the finger in question you can use a piece of string to get an estimated ring size. Wrap a piece of string or ribbon around the finger in question, and mark clearly where the piece of string starts to coil around for the second time. If you measure this piece of string with a ruler (in millimetres) from the end to the mark you made, you will get the Inside Circumference. Have a look on the chart below which size describes this measurement most accurately. There are a couple of factors that make the ‘Piece of String’ method a bit problematic when getting your ring size. You should also measure your knuckle, and send me this measurement as well, just so we are sure there isn’t a massive size difference. Some people have larger knuckles than the rest of their finger, and then the ring will struggle to go over the knuckle, but it will be loose and swinging around the base of your finger.
It also depends whether the measurement is taken on a cold Winter’s day, or in the heat of Summer. Most people’s fingers swell up a bit in Summer, and similarly contracts on a cold day. The ideal is to find the right size between seasons that is going to fit your finger securely all year round. Most of our rings can be easily resized, so it’s not a disaster if we don’t get your size right the first time round. In the chart below I have cited the average ring sizes, for more information please visit ringsizes.co.
