Save Time and Measure Your Ring Size on Your Own with These 6 Easy Tips

Choosing the perfect ring takes time. Whether you are looking for an engagement ring or an anniversary token, you know you'll be investing time to find the perfect ring. Golden Tree Jewelers knows how valuable your time is. One way to save yourself a little in-store time is by measuring your ring size at home.

3 Tips On How To Measure Ring Size

Men's wedding bands and women's wedding bands, for example, will always be on a particular finger. If it hasn't been measured, here are three easy at-home ways to measure your ring finger.

1. The string method

You can tie a string or dental floss around your finger, mark it, and measure the length in millimeters. You'll want to be careful not to tie the string too tight or leave it too loose. Also, take into account being able to get the ring over the knuckle. Usual sizes for women start at size three and go up to size fourteen for men. You can easily find a millimeter conversion chart online for ring size. It's basically about .4 milliliters for every half-size of ring size.

2. Measure a ring you already have

Maybe you have another ring that fits the finger, but you don't know it's size. You can easily find and print a ring sizing chart online. Then, simply match the inside circumference of the ring to the corresponding size on the chart.

3. Gadgets

There are some great gadgets out there that will show you how to measure ring size at home. Maybe you like different rings on different fingers or maybe the size of your fingers has changed over the years.

Whatever the case, there's a tool on the market designed for you to measure your own ring size. Anything from a dedicated, diminutive measuring tape with a pointed guide telling you the exact ring size to a large metal ring holding a sample of every ring size so you can try them on can be found easily online.'

Tips to Help You Get An Accurate Size

Here's a few good ways to make sure that you are getting an accurate ring size at home when measuring your ring finger.

  • Measure it more than once. We'd recommend measuring it three times: morning, noon, and evening. Sometimes, your fingers may be a little larger or smaller at certain times of day.
  • Again, measure it more than once. If you don't have time to measure it at different times of the day, you'll want to double or triple-check your measurement.
  • Have someone else measure with you, especially for holding or tying the string. It can be a little awkward for you to do it with one hand.
