Ring Sizing


When it comes to buying a ring, one of the most important things to consider is finding the right size. Wearing a ring that fits perfectly not only ensures comfort but also prevents the risk of losing it. But how can you determine your ring size accurately? In this blog post, we will guide you through the process of finding your ring size, so you can confidently purchase the perfect ring for yourself or your loved one.

1. Use a Ring Sizer

The easiest and most accurate way to find your ring size is by using a ring sizer. A ring sizer is a small tool that consists of a series of metal or plastic rings in various sizes. Simply slide the rings onto your finger until you find the one that fits snugly but comfortably. The size of that ring is your ring size.

You can also order a plastic, reusable ring sizer from Ten26 Studio to ensure accuracy:


2. Measure an Existing Ring

If you already have a ring that fits well, you can measure its diameter or circumference to determine your ring size. Use a ruler or a measuring tape to measure the inside diameter of the ring in millimeters. Alternatively, you can measure the circumference of the ring by wrapping a piece of string around the inside and then measuring the length of the string.

  1. Wrap string or paper around the base of your finger.
  2. Mark the point where the ends meet with a pen.
  3. Measure the string or paper with a ruler (mm) then divide by 3.14 (or Pi) to get the diameter of the ring.
  4. Pick the closest measurement on the ring size chart to find your ring size.

Use an existing Ring:

  1. Measure the inside of another ring that fits using a tape measure and our printable ring sizer.
  2. The ring should fit your finger comfortably: snug enough so it won't fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle with relative ease.
  3. When the knuckle is bigger than the base of the finger, measure both places and pick a size in between the two.
  4. Measure your ring size at the end of the day when your fingers are warm. Finger size changes depending on the time of day and the weather, and your fingers are actually smaller in the early morning and in cold weather. Also, keep in mind that fingers on your dominant hand are usually larger.
  5. Measure 3 to 4 times for more accuracy.
  6. The wider the band the larger you need to order. We typically recommend 1/2 to 3/4 size up.

 3. Visit a Jewelry Store

If you're unsure about your ring size or prefer a professional's assistance, visit a local jewelry store. Most jewelry stores have ring sizers available and trained staff who can help you find the perfect fit. They can also provide valuable advice on choosing the right ring style and metal for your needs.

4. Request a Ring Sizing Kit

Some online jewelry retailers offer ring sizing kits that you can request for free or for a small fee. These kits typically include plastic or metal ring sizers in various sizes. By trying on the different rings, you can determine your ring size accurately from the comfort of your own home.

5. Consider Finger Temperature and Time of Day

It's important to note that your finger size can vary depending on factors such as temperature and time of day. Fingers tend to be slightly larger in the evening and in warmer weather. Keep this in mind when measuring your ring size to ensure a comfortable fit in all conditions.

The average ring size available for women ranges from size 3 to size 9. The most commonly purchased women's rings range between size 5 and size 7. Size 6 is the most popular. The average ring size available for men ranges from size 6 to size 13. The most commonly purchased men's rings range between size 8 to 10-½. Size 9 is the most popular. These standard ring sizes can help guide you in the right direction. 

Now that you know how to find your ring size, you can confidently shop for the perfect ring.


    Happy Shopping!!!
