Ring Sizing

Measuring your finger for ring sizing is a simple process. Here's a short guide to help you get an accurate measurement:

What you'll need:
1. A strip of paper or a flexible measuring tape.
2. A pen or marker.
3. A ruler or a tape measure in millimetres.

1. Prepare the Paper: Cut a strip of paper about 1/2 inch (1.27 cm) wide and 4-5 inches (10-12 cm) long. Alternatively, use a flexible measuring tape.

2. Wrap Around Your Finger: Gently wrap the paper strip or measuring tape around the base of the finger where you intend to wear the ring. Make sure it's snug but not too tight, as you want the ring to slide on comfortably.

3. Mark the Overlap: Where the strip or tape overlaps, use a pen or marker to mark the point.

4. Measure the Length: Carefully remove the strip or tape from your finger and lay it flat. Use a ruler or tape measure to measure the distance between the end of the strip and the marked point. This measurement is the circumference of your finger.

5. Convert to Size: Use a ring size chart (image below) or an online ring size calculator to determine your ring size based on the circumference measurement. Ring sizes are typically expressed in millimetres or US/UK ring size standards.

6. Consider the Fit: Keep in mind that different styles of rings (wide vs. narrow bands) may have different sizing requirements. If in doubt, it's often safer to round up to the nearest size for comfort.

7. Consult a Jeweller: For the most precise sizing, visit a local jeweller who can professionally measure your finger or try on sample rings to find your ideal fit.

Remember that proper ring sizing is essential for comfort and ensuring that your ring doesn't slip off or feel too tight. It's always best to double-check with a professional if you're uncertain about your ring size, especially for valuable or custom-made rings.
