How to Measure Your Ring Size at Home

First things first, how is supposed a ring to fit? I get this asked a lot and it is very simple, your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle with some resistance.

You should also take into consideration that when you are hot your fingers will also be bloated and you want your ring to still fit you. The average ring size for women is between 5 and 7, and the size will also depend in which finger do you want to wear your ring, we will make another post about the meaning of each finger ring later. 

Before you sit down to measure your ring size, there are a few how-to pointers you should keep in mind:

  • Consider your knuckle. If you know your knuckle is on the larger side, you should order half a size bigger than what your finger alone indicates, otherwise you won’t be able slide a ring into the right place.
  • Ensure accuracy with multiple tries. Measure your finger three to four different times because the size actually fluctuates depending on temperature: It can be smaller the colder you are and more swollen if you’re overheated.
The instructions below will demonstrate how you can determine your ring size at home prior to making a purchase.

Measure Your Finger

If you don’t already have a measuring ring, you can measure your finger accurately. The easiest method to do this involves the simple use of a piece of string:
1.    First, cut a piece of thread about 4 centimeters long.
2.   Wrap the piece of string around the base of the finger you want to measure. Place the thread on a ruler in millimeters, the length of the thread marked is the circumference of your finger.
3.   Be sure to measure both the knuckle and the base of the finger. If your knuckle is significantly larger than the base of your finger, choose a measurement that falls in the middle of these two measurements.
4.  The conversion chart below will show you how to translate your measurements in millimeters to a proper ring size that fits you well and is comfortable.

Measure A Ring You Already Have

The quickest method involves using a ring you already own. If you have a ring at home that fits comfortably, you can use its measurements to find an ideal ring size using only a ruler and our size chart.
1.    Use your ruler to measure the diameter of your ring: measure straight across from one end of the inside of the ring to the other.
2.    Take the measurements in millimeters and use the conversion chart included below to determine your ring size. If the ring you measured is slightly tight or too loose, consider choosing a size either slightly larger or smaller to improve comfort.
