Measuring your Ring Size

Before taking your measurements for your personalised jewellery, you must choose the finger on which you want to wear your ring. Take note that the fingers on your dominant hand can be more significant compared to your non-dominant hand.

Make sure that your finger is at its standard size before proceeding with measuring it. There ensure that your finger is at its standard size before taking a measurement. Temperature is essential since fingers get larger during warm weather and tend to shrink in cold weather. Do your measurements at the end of the day since the fingers are at their largest during this time. Some extraneous variables that can also affect your finger sizes are food, medications, or illness.

The best way to get your finger measurements is to consult a professional jeweller and have them measure your fingers. It is the most recommended and accurate way. However, we collate some tips and techniques to measure your ring size by doing it yourself.

Floss or String

You can measure your ring size on your own by using a string or floss. Use either of these and wrap it around your chosen finger you want to put a ring on. Then, put a mark where the floss or strings overlaps with a marker or pen. After that, lay down the string or floss and use a ruler to measure it using its length in millimetres.

There is one disadvantage of using floss or string because it can be stretched. If it is overstretched, chances are the measurement will not be accurate and may be larger than the actual size of your finger.

Use rings you already have

You can use the rings you already have to measure your ring size. You can try printing out a ring size chart and place your ring on the circles so you can figure out the size that matches the circumference of your ring. You can also use a ruler by measuring the inside of the ring from edge to edge. Use your measurement conversion chart when taking the diameter measurement in millimetres to know your ring size.

Print a Paper Ring Sizer

You can also print out a standard ring sizer using your computer. Ensure that your printer scale is 100 per cent and the ‘fit to page’ box is unchecked when printing. This will let you get an accurate measurement from printing the ring sizer. Then, place the ring on the circles of the ring sizer you printed out until you determine the size that matches. You can also cut the ring sizer into strips and use it to measure your finger.

Buy a ring sizer

If you want to be more accurate about your ring size, you still have the option to purchase your ring measurement tool. It does not necessarily have to be expensive. There are many options to choose from online that are affordable, and you don’t even have to set foot outside.


Few notes to remember:

● Measure your fingers more than once so you can get more accurate measurements.

● Consider what type of ring you will wear. You need to know if the ring has smaller or broader bands.

● Fingers are different on your dominant and non-dominant hand

● Choose a larger size since professional jewellers more recommend it.
