How to measure your ring size?

The most accurate way to determine your ring size is to visit a local jewelry store where they have several measurement tools to determine your ring size. But there is an alternative way to do so which is by using a ruler.

  1.  Get a string or paper about 6" long and 1/4" wide
  2.  Wrap around the base of your finger. It has to fit snug, but not too tight..
  3.  Mark the point on the string/paper where it overlaps forming a circle.
  4.  Compare the length of the string/paper to the chart. That is your ring size !


There are some factors that might affect your ring size namely :-

  • Temperature – Fingers have a smaller diameter in cold weather and a bigger diameter in warm weather.
  • Humidity causes fingers to swell.
  • Diet – Salt and other foods can cause you to retain water and swell
  • Weight loss or gain
  • Exercise
  • Pregnancy
  • Time of Day – Fingers tend to be a smaller diameter in the morning and bigger at night.
