Is there a ring you’d like to purchase in an online store but you are not sure what size to order? Indeed, we don’t buy rings too often to know a size that fits. A ring is not clothes or shoes, after all, so not many people keep the sizing in mind. But don't worry, there are plenty of easy ways to find your ring size. You don’t even have to leave the house to figure it out.
Things to Know Before You Measure Your Ring Size
Before you start, you need to know when it is best to take measurements, and on which days you can get a big margin of error. Make sure to take a quick look at these measuring tips:
- You should not measure your fingers in the morning. Sometimes, fingers get swollen after sleep.
- We do not recommend measuring fingers right after working out.
- Sizing on a cold or hot day will also distort the results. In the heat, your fingers might become 0.5 size larger while in the cold, they will appear smaller.
You need to keep in mind that the dimensions of each finger are different from each other. The same finger on different hands will have a diverse diameter, and this difference is hard to see with a human eye. It might seem like your index fingers, for example, are the same in size while, in fact, they are not. Therefore, you cannot take measurements for a finger on your left hand if you intend to wear a ring on your right hand. You should bear in mind that the fingers on the dominant hand will always be 0.5–1.0 size bigger.
The ring size is determined based on the circumference of your finger. At least, such an approach is used in the European and American charts. The only difference is that the Europeans express ring sizes in millimeters…
