Ordering rings online has become a popular option for many people. However, the challenge that comes with buying rings online is how to find the right ring size without being able to try it on in a store.
When you decide to buy a ring for yourself or someone, one of the most important things you need to know is the size of the ring. Without the correct size, the ring can be too tight or too loose, making it uncomfortable to wear. Measuring your ring size is easy, and in this article we will explain how to do it.
Method 1: Using tape or paper
One of the easiest ways to measure ring size is to use a tape or paper. For this method, you will need a thin tape or paper, a pencil and a flat measuring surface.
- Step 1: Cut a strip of ribbon or paper about 10 centimeters long and half a centimeter wide.
- Step 2: Wrap the band around the finger where you want to wear the ring. Make sure the tape or paper is tight, but not too tight. Leave some space so that the ring can be worn comfortably.
- Step 3: Using a pencil, mark where the tip of the ribbon or paper intersects with the rest of the tape.
- Step 4: Using a straight measuring tool, measure the length of the tape in millimeters.
- Step 5: Find your ring size in the ring size chart.

Method 2: Using an existing ring
Another way to measure your ring size is to use an existing ring that fits well. For this method, you will need an existing ring and a tape measure.
- Step 1: Choose a ring that fits you well on the finger where you want to wear the new ring.
- Step 2: Take a measuring tape and measure the inner diameter of the ring.
- Step 3: Find your ring size in the ring size chart.
TIPS AND TRICKS
- Your fingers are not the same thickness all day. In the morning, they are somewhat thinner, while the size of the finger increases throughout the day. That's why it's best to determine the size in the evening or later in the afternoon, when the fingers are slightly larger in order to be sure that the ring will fit you at any time of the day, because otherwise it could happen that you determine the size in the morning, and in the evening it no longer fits you .
- The temperature also affects the size of the ring, i.e. the circumference of the finger. When your hands are cold, your fingers are slightly thinner, and when it's hot, your fingers are thicker. It is best to measure the size in the optimal temperature, we repeat, at the end of the day.
- For all rings with a wider design - it's always better to go one size up to make the ring more comfortable to wear.
- If you have a more pronounced joint on your finger, then measure the circumference of the joint and the bottom of the finger and choose a ring size that is between those two sizes so that the ring can pass over the joint and still "sit" nicely on the finger. It is important that the ring does not squeeze you anywhere and that you wear it with pleasure, but that you do not have problems with putting the ring on, and also that you do not have the constant feeling that you will lose it.
- It is best to repeat the ring size measurement procedure several times to make sure you have determined the correct size.
