What is my ring size?

Ah, the million dollar question. What is your ring size? Here are a few options that will give you an approximate guide as to what your ring size might be.

(Golden Tip: The best time of day to measure is in the evening, when your fingers are largest. Avoid measuring when you’re cold, as fingers are at least half a size smaller.)

1) Find out your ring size in a high street gold shop

The easiest and best option to discover your ring size is by visiting a Jeweller’s store on the high street and asking for your ring size to be measured.

2) You already have a ring – use our ring chart to measure the size

 

a) If you already have a ring or you are looking to buy a ring for someone special, you can use our ring chart to find your/their finger size.

 

b) Download and print our ring chart to 100% scaling. Uncheck any scale to fit/shrink to page options.To ensure you have done this correctly, generate a print preview before printing. In the print preview, you’ll be able to select the scaling to 100%. Also, you will be able to choose the normal printing option as opposed to shrink to page option.

Once printed, measure the outer box with a ruler to ensure it matches the dimensions marked.

b) Cut out the paper ring belt

 

c) Make a slot, where it says “cut slot here”

 

d) Slide the opposite end of the belt through this slot to create a “belt-like-hole”

 

e) Reduce the size of the hole until the ring belt fits your finger, but also slides over your knuckle.

 

Remember if the ring is too small to pass over your knuckle, it won’t fit. Therefore make sure your ring belt can pass over your knuckle too.
