Ring Size Chart

Ring Size Chart

and How to measure your finger size

1. Go to a jewelers  and have them measure it with a wide band or thin band ring gauge, (depending on the width of the ring you are ordering)

2. If no jeweler is available then use the strip of paper method ,(described below the ring size chart ),to give me an idea of the size. I will need it’s total length since each ring is different depending on width and thickness.

3. For Your Information…Fingers can easily shrink and expand 1/2 size in a day due to water retension, body temperature, hand usage, room temperature and from prone to standing…among other factors.

This ring size chart is for my reference and only a rough gauge. It is caculated for a wide band ring of 1mm thick with a taper and dome...there are different measurements depending on the ring style!!!

This chart is relatively accuate but the finger measured at a Jewelers, in ‘normal’ conditions is still the only true way!

Strip of Paper Method – ( not the Ring Size Chart method )

Take a thin strip of paper , the width of the desired ring , ….1/4″ , 3/8″ etc…. Wrap it around your finger snugly,(not tight or loose) , and mark where the end comes around.

The 3/8″ or wider strip should taper on each end from the 3/8″ down to about 1/4″

Lay the strip down on a ruler, either in inches or millimeters, and convert that length to the ring size on the chart.

Wider rings or strips of paper, ( 3/8″- 1/2″ ), will give a slightly different measurement, larger sizing.

There are several ways of measureing ring sizes and many charts that do not agree with each other.

There is a difference between a thin band and a wide band gauge measurement. For Example: If you measure a size 8 in a thin band you will probably be an 8 1/2 for a 3/8″ wide band ring.
