If you do not know your ring size, we highly recommend having your finger sized by a local jeweler and asking for your US ring size. You can also try this website, measure your finger using the below chart as a guide or purchase a sizer here. Unfortunately we cannot be responsible for determining your ring size as some people prefer to wear their rings looser or tighter than others. Please feel free to order multiple rings and take advantage of our scratch free return policy.
TIPS FOR MEASURING YOUR FINGER
- Fit: Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; loose enough to fit over your knuckle (some resistance is normal), but snug enough so that it will not fall off with the swing of an arm. If you hesitate between two sizes, always go with the larger one. To get the perfect fit, size up and have your local jeweler add sizing balls inside your band, which will provide a snug fit while still allowing your finger to expand and contract slightly with temperature and altitude.
- Big knuckles can affect your size: If your knuckle is a lot larger than the base of your finger, you may need to go up a half size.
- Time of Day: Finger size changes depending on the time of day and the weather. For best results measure your finger size:
- At the end of the day and when your fingers are warm (Fingers are smaller in the early morning and when cold.)
- Measure finger size 3 to 4 times to eliminate an erroneous reading.
- If your finger swells significantly throughout the day, we recommend these sizers that slip into the ring to adjust your ring as needed.
- Body Temperature: Don’t measure when your body temperature is either too cold or too hot. A cold finger shrinks while a hot finger expands causing an inaccurate reading. Only measure when fingers are at room temperature.
- Avoid Using Strings to Measure: Strings tend to stretch, which can result in wrong size.Wide Bands: If you are purchasing a wide band, you will be more comfortable moving up a half size from your measurement.
- Narrow Band: For best results, measure a plain, narrow band. Extra wide band styles tend to run slightly small. If your borrowed ring has a narrower shaft than the one you wish to purchase, you may wish to order a ring a size larger than the normal size worn. Also, large stone rings may cause the shank to lift up when laid on its side on the display, slightly distorting the size measurements.
- International Size Conversions: If ordering from outside of the US or Canada, determine your ring size according to your country’s standard. Then use the International Ring Size Chart above to convert to the corresponding US ring size to place your order.
- Average US Ring Sizes: Women’s rings typically range from size 3 to 9. Our most commonly purchased women’s ring sizes range from size 5 to 7. Size 6 is the most popular women's ring size. Men’s rings typically range from size 8 to 14. The most commonly purchased men’s ring sizes range from size 8 to 10-1/2. Size 9 is the most popular men's ring size.
- If it's a Surprise: If possible, borrow one of the recipient's rings (from the correct finger) and use findmyringsize.com or bring to a local jeweler to determine its size. We recommend measuring with a plain band. Alternatively, you can purchase a gift card for the recipient to choose her own piece. Remember we also have a generous scratch free return policy if you'd prefer to get a backup size.
