Getting your finger measurement correct for a perfect fitting ring size is critical to the enjoyment of your jewelry purchase
How to Measure Yourself
If you want to take matters into your own hands (er, fingers), you can use a few different at-home measurement methods with our printable size guide, which features both diameter and circumference for each ring size.
Paper Technique: Wrap a thin piece of paper around your ring finger, keeping it close to your knuckle where an engagement ring would realistically hit (you can also use string, but it’s less reliable since it’s super thin and more likely to move around). Don’t wrap too tight; make sure the makeshift ring fits comfortably. Use a pencil to mark the spot on the paper where the ends overlap. Measure the length of the paper against a ruler and compare the measurement to the circumferences on the size guide for your ring size.
Printable Ring Sizer Technique: Print and cut out the ring sizer at the bottom of the size guide. Make sure that the guide is printed to scale by measuring the above diameters against a ruler for accuracy. Cut the slot marked at the end of the sizer, wrap it around the base of your left ring finger, and slide the pointed end through the cut. Gently pull until it fits securely. Check the number displayed on the sizer for your ring size.
Ring Technique: Grab a ring you already own that fits the ring finger on your left hand and place it against a ruler. Measure the inner diameter of the ring and compare the measurement to the size guide. Or, print the guide to scale and place the ring directly on top of the ring images to find a matching diameter and ring size that lines up perfectly.
