Discover How to Measure Your Ring Size at Home

If you've ever wondered how to measure your ring size at home, you're in luck! Our ring size guide below will make it easy. It's entirely possible to measure your ring size accurately with simple tools. Just take a piece of string, like dental floss, wrap it around the base of your finger, and mark where it overlaps. Measure this length to get your finger's circumference, and you've got your ring size.

How to Measure Your Ring Size Without Raising Suspicion

Sometimes, you need to measure your ring size or someone else's without them knowing. For example, if you're planning a surprise proposal, you'll want to know your partner's ring size. One trick is to 'borrow' one of their rings (with or without their knowledge) that fits the same finger you're buying for and check it against our sizing guide. 

Clever Ways to Measure Your Girlfriend's Ring Size

If you're trying to measure your girlfriend's ring size subtly, here's a useful method: trace the inside of one of her rings on a piece of paper. You can then use this tracing to check against a ring size chart to determine their ring size, or the easiest method would be to show it to a jeweller.

The Accuracy of Home Methods to Measure Your Ring Size

You might question if home methods to measure your ring size are accurate. While they may not be as precise as professional ring measurements, they're certainly a good starting point. Always measure your finger at the end of the day when it's at its largest, and ensure the string or paper is firm but not too tight. 

The Easiest Method to Measure Your Ring Size

If you're looking for the simplest way to measure your ring size, the string or paper method is the way to go. This process doesn't require special tools and can easily be done at home. There isn't a male or women's ring size chart - ring sizing is universal.

Understanding Average Ring Sizes: How to Measure Your Ring Size

On average, women's ring sizes range between 5 and 7, while men's are between 8 and 10. But remember, these are just averages, and individual finger sizes can vary greatly. It's always best to measure your ring size for a perfect fit. A chunkier ring like our Sapphire Signet 'EXPLORER', can suit bigger sizes, such as Size 8 and onwards. While a smaller ring, like the Pinkie Signet 'LITTLEFINGER', will suit the little finger - as the name suggests!

Tips to Find My Ring Size:

Here are some additional tips to help you determine your ring size:

  • Measure at the end of the day: Your fingers tend to swell slightly throughout the day, so measuring in the evening can give a more accurate size.
  • Consider the width of the band: Wider bands often require a larger size, so keep this in mind while measuring. Our 'RESURRECTION' ring is wider and will take up more 'space' on the finger, so going a half size bigger will ensure it doesn't cut off any circulation.
  • When in doubt, size up: If you're unsure, it's safer to size up rather than down. It's easier to resize a ring that's too large than one that's too small. Our 'AEGIS' ring has a plain, thin band on the bottom, and would be less complicated to resize. All I would do is remove a section of the silver, weld the ends together, and then you'll have your new size.
