Seen a beautiful ring online, but you don't know your ring size? You don't have to empty your shopping cart right away, because you can easily determine your ring size yourself!
You can measure your ring size yourself in two ways. You will already need the following tools:
- A ring that fits you well, or a fine rope or ribbon
- A measuring tape or ruler
Measure your ring size with an existing ring
This is the easiest way to find out your ring size.
How to determine your ring size with a ring you have at home: take a well-fitting ring and place it on a measuring stick. You only measure the inside of the ring. This is how you get the inside diameter.
The number of millimeters of that diameter corresponds to a certain circumference. That circumference is then your ring size. In the table below you will find which circumference corresponds to which diameter. For example, measure the inner diameter of the ring 16 mm, then the circumference is 50 mm and your ring size is therefore also 50. Yep, it's that simple!
Another option is to place your ring on a paper ring mold. You can easily find such a ring template online and print it out. But this is not the most accurate method. After all, the accuracy of the measurement largely depends on the correct printer settings.
Measure your ring size with a tape or string
No ring at home? No problem, you can also get started with a simple ribbon or rope. With this method you measure the circumference of your finger to determine your ring size.
This is how you do it:
- Take a fine ribbon, for example a soft gift ribbon, or a thin string such as baker's twine. If you don't have ribbon or string at home, you can also use a paper strip
- Wind the rope or ribbon around the finger where you want to wear the ring
- Make a mark where the string or ribbon crosses
- Measure the distance from the start of the rope or ribbon to the mark
- The number of millimeters is the circumference of your finger and therefore also your ring size
Please note: do not pull the string too tight around your finger. The ring must also fit easily over the knuckle.
An alternative is to use a measuring tape to measure the circumference of your finger. In that case, wind the measuring tape around your finger. Where it crosses you can read the number of millimeters. That number is the circumference. You will find the corresponding ring size in the table below.
|Diameter (mm)||Circumference (mm) / Ring size|
Tips and tricks to measure your ring size correctly
- Measure the finger where you want to wear the ring! Every finger is different and the ring size can therefore vary.
- Your fingers are more swollen in the evening than in the morning. Do you want the most accurate measurement? Then measure your finger both in the morning and in the evening. Do you get two different results? Then take the larger size.
- Do not start measuring during a heat wave. The heat makes your hands expand. Very cold hands can also produce an abnormal measurement.
- Are you between sizes? Then go for the larger size. Your ring should not be too loose, but certainly not too tight either.
- If you have a wider ring in mind, it is best to choose half a ring size larger. After all, a wide ring feels tighter.
