A Guide to Understanding Finger Sizing for Rings

Finding the correct size ring for your finger is important for both comfort and appearance. If a ring is too small, it can be uncomfortable to wear and difficult to remove. On the other hand, a ring that is too large can easily slip off your finger and be at risk of getting lost. Here are a few tips on how to find the perfect size ring for your finger.

Measure your finger size

One of the most accurate ways to determine your ring size is to measure the circumference of your finger using a ring size chart or a ring sizer tool. These tools can be found online or at a jewellery store. To use a ring sizer, place it on your finger and slide it up to the knuckle, making sure it fits comfortably but not too loose. You can then refer to the size chart to determine your ring size. Sizing with the correct measuring devices (such as a finger sizing gague) is most important for accuracy. 

Width Matters

The width of the ring can also affect the fit. If you are purchasing a wide ring, you may need to go up a size to ensure a comfortable fit. On the other hand, a narrow ring may fit better in a smaller size. FIngers tend to be conical in shape so a wider ring will fit tighter on one end than the other. 

Fits Like a Glove

When trying on rings, it is important to consider how the ring feels on your finger. The ring should fit comfortably and should pop on over the knuckle and be slightly difficult to take off. If the ring feels too tight or too loose when it’s on, you may need to try a different size.

What Time is it?

It is also important to keep in mind that your finger size can change throughout the day due to factors such as temperature and swelling. It is best to measure your finger size at the end of the day when it is at its largest. Other factors may include your salt intake for the day, if you just finished an exercise or a long walk, and other determining factors. So it’s best to measure a few times on different days to get an average.

Get Some Professional Help

If you are still unsure of your ring size, you can always visit a jewellery store and have a professional measure your finger. In fact it’s recommended! This will ensure a more accurate measurement and help you find your perfect fit. 

Overall, finding the correct size ring for your finger is important for both comfort and appearance.

It may not seem like a big deal now, but if your rings leave your finger red from tightness or if they flop around it can be more than just an annoyance.
