unsure of your ring size?

A ring should fit comfortably—Loose enough to slide over the knuckle without removing a layer of skin but snug enough to fight back a bit when you take it off. You should be able to confidently wave at someone without fear of your rings flying off in the process. Wait… were they waving at the person behind you?

 

having a local jeweler size your finger is the surest way to get the proper size, but you can do it yourself at home with these three steps:

Consider the knuckle.

Depending on knuckle size, it may be beneficial to order a half size up to accommodate larger knuckles.


Measure twice, order once.

Finger size fluctuates due to things like temperature and bloating. To ensure proper fit, measure your finger at a few different times. You wouldn’t want your ring to only fit on your cheat day.


Measure the circumference

Wrap a string (or dental floss if you’re in a pinch) around the base of your finger and mark where it meets with a pen. The marked length is the circumference of your finger. Now take a ruler and measure that length. Don’t forget to use millimeters. Then use our handy table to find your ring size and voila! You got your ring size, baby.
