Finding your correct ring size can feel like a mystery. How will you know if the ring fits unless you try it on? And how do you do that if you can’t exactly try it on until you know what your correct ring size is? Yikes! It’s enough to make any shopper crack under the pressure. But don’t stress just yet, finding the perfect ring size doesn’t have to be that difficult. In fact, there are several foolproof ways to find your perfect ring size without breaking a sweat. However, we understand that not everyone has a friend who works at a department store or a local jeweler willing to help out. So for those of you who are reading this article because you have no one else to ask, read on for some helpful tips and tricks on how to find your perfect ring size.
Try Before You Buy
If your friend or family member has a ring you can try on, you can see if it is the same size as yours and then figure out how to make it fit. You can also try on rings at jewellery stores. The most accurate way to find your ring size is by measuring the diameter of your finger and using the ring size chart below.
If you don’t have a ring sizer, you can use a measuring tape or ring sizer to find your ring size. First, measure the circumference of your finger and then subtract 1/16 of an inch to get your ring size. Ring sizers and measuring tapes are inexpensive and easy to find. You can also try using a tape measure or ruler, but you’ll have to account for the thickness of the tape or ruler.
Use Your Finger Size
If you know your ring size and you’re shopping for a wedding band, you can use your finger size to find the correct ring size. Wedding bands are usually slightly smaller than your ring finger. Finger sizes are less standard than ring sizes, so this method may not be as accurate. Ring sizes are based on the diameter of the finger, while finger sizes are based on the circumference of the finger. This means that a ring that is two sizes smaller than your finger may not be the same diameter as your finger.
Find Your Finger’s Measurement
If you are shopping for a non-standard ring size, you can measure the circumference of your finger. Wrap a piece of string or thread around your finger and mark where it meets on the other side. Add 2 to the measurement to get your ring size. For example, a measurement of 6 inches becomes an 8-size ring.
Your ring size doesn’t have to be difficult to find. You can try on rings at a jewellery store or measure your finger at home using a ring sizer or measuring tape. Make sure to take your changing hands and fingers into account when shopping for a ring.
