Choosing the Right Size for Your Ring

Most people are a bit lost, when they aren’t able to try the ring before they are paying for it. Luckily for you, there are a lot of guides which will help you choose the right ring size. In this size guide, we will present two easy ways which you can use to measure your ring size.

When you have read the size guide and have found the perfect ring size, feel free to browse through our selection of rings.

 

1. Approach: Measure an existing ring

Do you have one or more rings laying around? Then you can determine the size of these rings by measuring the diameter. The only thing you need for this approach is a ruler, tape measure, or even better, a vernier caliper. You measure the diameter of the ring from the inside of the ring at the widest spot. It is the distance you can see in the picture below. In the table below, you can see what the specific diameter is equivalent to in ring size.

Diameter on the inside of the ring Ring size
16,5 mm size 52
16,8 mm size 53
17,2 mm size 54
17,5 mm  size 55
17,7 mm size 56 
18,0 mm size 57 
18,4 mm size 58 
18,7 mm size 59
19,0 mm size 60 
19,3 mm size 61 
19,6 mm size 62
20,0 mm size 63
20,3 mm size 64

 

2. Approach: Measure your finger

To figure out which ring size that fits you, is equivalent to figure out the circumference around your finger. By measuring your own finger you can easily figure out what ring size to wear on that finger. See the description below where we tell you which tools you need, to be able to measure your finger. It only takes 2 minutes!

You will need this

  • A piece of thread or a strip of paper
  • A ballpoint pen or a marker pen
  • A ruler or tape measure

How to measure your finger

Take the thread (or paper strip) and twist it twice around the finger on which you want the ring to be worn. Do not tighten the thread too much, as it represents the ring you want to wear on the finger. When the thread is twisted twice around the finger, draw a line with the ballpoint pen across both pieces of thread. You can now take off the thread and measure the distance between the two lines, that you just drew on the thread. This is your ring size. If the distance is 60 mm then your ring size is “60”.

Be aware that your fingers should have a regular temperature. They should not be too warm or too cold, as this might affect the size of your fingers.
