How To Measure Ring Size At Home
Worried about how you'll measure your ring size at home?
Don’t panic just yet. There are several methods you can use to know how to measure ring size. We have also provided a ring size chart.
USE A STRING/FLOSS
To measure with a string, you will need the following:
How to measure:
Cut a string that is about 6 inches long. Fold the string around the base of the finger, just below the knuckle. Mark where the string ends with the pen. Place the measured string on the ruler with the area marked on your right. The number closest to the pen mark is the circumference of the ring in millimeters. Use the ring size chart above to translate the measurements into a ring size.
USE A STRIP OF PAPER
To measure the ring size using a strip of paper, you will need the following:
- A strip of paper
Cut a thin strip of paper about 4 inches long. Fold the thin strip of paper around the finger at the base and close enough to your knuckle. Mark the area where the two ends of the paper strip meet. Use the ruler to measure the length in millimeters to give you the circumference. Convert the measurement to the appropriate ring size, using the ring size chart below.
USE A RING THAT FITS YOU
To measure the ring size using a ring that fits, you will need the following:
- A ring at home that fits the finger that will wear the engagement ring
Measure the inside diameter of the ring (that’s the hole inside the ring, excluding the metal).
Write down this measurement in millimeters, and use the conversion chart above to find your ring size.
Ring Size Measuring Tips:
If you are between sizes, order a larger size. Make sure your finger is at a normal body temperature -- fingers can shrink or expand when cold or hot. If your knuckle is much larger than your finger’s base, take two separate measurements and choose a size in between. A ring should fit secure enough so that it will never fall off. You want a ring to fit over your knuckle, but not be too loose or it will shift around.
What if I did all the steps above, but still can't determine my ring size?
