Knowing your ring size is essential to purchasing a well-fitting band. When you know your size, it not only makes buying the right jewelry easier, but shopping online becomes a convenient option. It also makes purchasing custom rings easier and more efficient. Discovering your ring size can be as simple as heading to your local jeweler, but there are also a few easy ways to assess your ring size at home. Check out our list below to help find your perfect fit.
Finding Your Ring Size:
1Have Your Ring Finger Measured
The best way to get an accurate size of your finger is to have it measured by a professional jeweler. Most jewelers have sizing bands that will help you find your perfect fit. This is an especially good idea if you're planning to purchase expensive jewelry like an engagement ring or wedding band.
2Ring Sizing Tips
Taking an accurate measurement of your finger is best assessed when your hands are warm. Cold hands mean your fingers are at their smallest, which can result in rings becoming too tight as your hands warm up. Make sure the finger you are measuring is the one on which you plan to wear the ring, as fingers on opposite hands can be different sizes. If you finger size falls between two ring sizes, always default to the larger one. Don't forget to keep knuckle size in mind. If your knuckles are larger than the base of your finger, choose a ring that comfortably fits over your knuckle.

Another way to assess your own ring size is to measure your finger with a strip of paper. Start by cutting out a 3/4-inch wide strip of paper. Wrap the paper around the base of the intended finger, and then mark where the paper overlaps. Use a ruler to measure the length of paper in millimeters.
