How To Measure Your Ring Size?

Following are Two Easy methods for Finding out Size of your Ring.

This is a chart that will be extremely helpful for you to determine the ring size that you need. You can either make use of a tape or a small piece of string to measure the area that will be occupied by the ring. When it becomes a complete circle, make a mark on such string. This will be helpful for you to compare with the chart that is mentioned below. For extra width, you can add another size to accommodate.

Requirement:

  • 1. A strip of Paper or Tape .
  • 2. Pencil or Pen to mark on Strip.
  • 3. Ruler for Measuring Length in Milimeters.

Caution:

  • 1. Do not Tighten or loosen the Strip too much on finger. Adjust it with desired tightness before measuring.
  • 2. Take into account the Size of Knuckles (Finger Joints), If you take a size that is too small then Knuckles then the Ring may not get into the Finger. Using a wide Strip minimises this error.
