How Do You Know If A Ring Is The Right Size?

The ring should fit comfortably on your finger: tight enough so that you don’t lose it, but large enough so that you can slide it over your finger joint relatively easily. When the joint is larger than the base of the finger, measure the two areas and choose a size in between.

  • Between a whole ring size number and the next, there is a 2 to 3 mm difference in the inner circumference of the ring.
  • Many people believe that a variation of half a size or less will always be as comfortable most of the time.
  • The larger a ring, the more it will feel finger tight. For all ring widths greater than 5 mm, opt for an additional half size.
  • The inside of a comfort ring puts less metal in contact with the finger; it will therefore tend to appear a little larger. If you are between two sizes, round to the number below. If you have thick joints, you may need to choose a half size above.
  • It is also good to take into account that the size of the fingers fluctuates slightly depending on the diet, temperature and activities. How your ring fits may vary slightly during the day.

Make sure the ring you are measuring is worn with the same hand and finger as the new ring. It can be difficult to buy an engagement ring for a surprise, because many people do not wear a ring on the left ring finger before being engaged! It is possible to use the right ring finger as a guide. (Just keep in mind that the fingers of the dominant hand tend to be slightly wider than the others; usually a quarter or a half size.) So if the recipient of your ring is right-handed, be sure to increase the size.

  • Try to choose a ring with a similar width.
  • Measure your ring size at the end of the day when your fingers are the biggest.
  • Measure 3 or 4 times for more accuracy.
  • If the ring is between two sizes, order the larger size.
