Ways to Measure Your Ring Size

If you’re looking for a luxury watch, then why not make it personal? Don’t limit yourself to traditional methods of measuring ring size. You can also measure your finger using other materials like string or paper. The important thing is that you know what fits and what doesn’t before making a purchase.

A ring is a beautiful and symbolic thing. It's a gift that represents love and commitment, but it needs to fit properly if it's going to look good. If your ring doesn't fit right, it can be uncomfortable or even painful! We'll show you how to measure your finger so that you know exactly what size ring will fit before buying one.s

Measure your ring size with a piece of string.

The most common method is to wrap a piece of string around your finger, mark the point where it overlaps, then measure the length of the string. Simply divide this number by 3.14 and you have your ring size in millimetres (mm).

If you don’t have a ruler handy, use a piece of paper instead. Put it flat on top of your finger and mark where it overlaps (the dotted lines below). Then measure the length of that strip using a ruler or tape measure—it should be about 3 mm long for an average-sized finger. The result? You just calculated how many times around your finger this strip would fit; that’s your ring size!

Measure your ring size with a piece of paper.

If you don't have access to a jewelry store, or if you're just too lazy to get off the couch and head over there, there's another way to measure your ring size: with a piece of paper.

First, cut a piece of paper that is long enough to wrap around your finger (start by measuring from the base of your palm). Fold it in half and wrap it around your finger. Make sure it is snug but not too tight—if you cannot easily slide it on and off without having to force it over any knuckles, try using something thinner like printer paper or magazine pages instead. Measure the length of this strip of folded paper (in inches).

Use an online ring size chart (like this one) based on US/UK sizing conventions to determine what your exact measurement corresponds to in terms of ring sizes (e.g., 8 inches = 7½).

Now you can use this information to find out what your ring size is if you don't have access to a jewelry store. If you're shopping online, be sure to check the sizing charts provided by each company before ordering rings—many companies offer custom sizing services but charge extra for them (usually around $20).

Measure your ring size using the international ring size chart.

Measuring your ring size using the international ring size chart is probably the most accurate way to get your size. The most common method of measuring a finger for a wedding band is by wrapping a string or strip of paper around the base of your finger and then marking where it overlaps. You can also use a piece of tape, but it tends to be more difficult to measure with accuracy this way.

Now that you have your measurements, use our handy calculator below to find which international size corresponds with them! If you're not sure how to read this chart, don't worry—it's pretty easy: each letter represents one number on the scale (A = 0, B = 1 etc.). For example, if I measured my finger as 2cm wide in diameter (about 7/8 inch), then my ring would be labeled "B."

The last thing to consider is whether or not you want a comfort fit band. This type of ring is made slightly wider than its stated size, so that it isn't uncomfortable for your finger. If you have trouble finding rings that fit comfortably without being too tight, then this may be the best option for you.

Knowing how to measure your ring size is important when you want to buy diamond rings.

Measuring your ring size is important when you want to buy diamond rings. If you don't know your ring size, you might have a hard time finding the right fit for yourself. You can measure your finger with a piece of string, paper or even an international ring size chart provided by jewelers.

If you are buying diamonds for engagement rings, it's always better to get the correct size so that both partners will be happy with their new jewelry pieces and not have to go back to change them later on.

You can also buy a ring sizer from jewelry stores, which is basically a piece of plastic that will indicate your exact size. If you are buying diamond rings for someone else, make sure that you have their ring size before making any purchases.

If you are buying diamond rings for someone else, make sure that you have their ring size before making any purchases. A good way to find out if you're on the right track is to ask their friends or family members what their size is.
