Though most jewelers can easily resize a ring to make it fit, it is easier to just buy a ring that is already your size. You can have your ring size measured at a jewelry store by a professional, or you can to do it yourself at home.
When finding out your ring size, keep in mind that each individual finger is normally a different size, so you will need to measure the finger you want to wear the ring on. Fingers also tend to swell when warm and shrink when cool, so measure your size while your hands are comfortably warm.
Ring Size Measurement Steps:
Step 1: Start by cutting a thin strip of paper that is long enough to fit around your finger. Use tape to make a paper ring that fits perfectly on your finger. The ring should be tight enough to not fall off, but it still needs to be loose enough to fit over your knuckle and slide down to the base of your finger.
Step 2: Take the paper ring off and use scissors to make one cut across the width of your paper ring. You should now have a strip of paper that is the same length as the measurement of your finger.
Step 3: Now use a ruler to measure the length of your paper as accurately as possible, and compare it to the chart below to find your ring size:
|Size 3||14.0 mm|
|Size 4||14.8 mm|
|Size 5||15.6 mm|
|Size 6||16.45 mm|
|Size 7||17.3 mm|
|Size 8||18.2 mm|
|Size 9||19.0 mm|
|Size 10||19.8 mm|
|Size 11||20.6 mm|
|Size 12||21.4 mm|
|Size 13||22.2 mm|
Step 4: Write down your size (because otherwise you might forget) and head to your local jeweler to pick out the ring!
