How To Measure Ring Size

There are two main ways to measure ring size: using a ring sizer or using a string or piece of paper.

Using a ring sizer

A ring sizer is a tool that has a series of graduated hoops that you can slip your finger through to find the right size. Ring sizers are available at most jewelry stores.

To use a ring sizer, simply slip your finger through the hoops until you find one that is snug but not too tight. The size of the hoop that fits your finger is your ring size.

Using a string or piece of paper

If you do not have a ring sizer, you can measure your ring size using a string or piece of paper. To do this, follow these steps:

  1. Wrap a string or piece of paper around the base of your finger.
  2. Mark the point where the string or paper overlaps.
  3. Measure the length of the string or paper from the mark to the end.
  4. Use a ring size chart to convert the length of the string or paper to your ring size.

Here is a sample ring size chart:
