Getting the correct size is definitely the most important part in buying any ring. There are many factors to consider when ordering a ring, follow our helpful tips and advice below to get the perfect ring size.

Best way to determine the right size is to visit at least two local high street jewellers stores (Ernest Jones and HM Samuel) to see if both agree on a median size.

A ring’s width can affect the measurements of your ring finger, so try on a sample of a similar width to the ring that you would like to purchase.

How To Measure Ring Size At Home

If ordering from our online jewelry store, we offer a complimentary service where we can post a simple test band to you.

Ring Size Conversion Chart

This handy tool works, forming a ring belt, slide for a snug fit, then view the scale. The famous multi-sizer is marked with industry standard British Ring Sizes A-Z.

The total width is 5 millimeters. When using to measure your circumference we recommend you try it at different time points through the day in the comfort of your own home and work. These locations will vary in temperatures morning and evening letting your digits expand hot or cold. If you are planning to purchase a wider ring of an 8mm width, you will probably need to increase ring size by a half size. I don’t suggest using dental floss, paper or string as these are not accurate for rings.

A perfectly sized ring is one that you forget that you’re wearing. For most of us there is no such thing as the perfectly fitting size. Average finger size for a man is Q and a L for women. Your fingers change in size depending on weather, heating, exercise, hormones, etc.

There will be days when rings are slightly larger and others when a little loose. It’s normal that chosen rings feel tighter over summer months and looser through winter months.

Beware that temperature can affect ring sizes. It’s best to get measured with a ring diameter that’s close to the width of your intended design in a neutral climate.

Finger Shapes:

Less talked about but an issue to consider is finger shape when purchasing a ring, it plays a big role in obtaining the size.

The shape plays an important role in finding the right size. Digits that move away from the hand without prominent knuckles should ensure a comfort fit on the finger.

Those that have a wide knuckle should find a happy medium; the trick is to get the tightest possible size that fits on the digit, this will require the use of a little more force when taking the ring on/off.

Gift Surprises:

If you want a wedding anniversary or engagement ring for a surprise proposal borrow an existing piece of jewellery to check size. Another method is to place it on one of your hands in secret and mark a line with a pen where it touches.
