Imagine planning the greatest proposal ever, and getting a clear yes from your partner only to discover the ring does not fit… Wouldn’t that be awkward? Well, it happens more often than you think because of not knowing the ring size.
Keep reading this post if you want to avoid a similar situation or if you just want to learn how to buy a ring online. You’ll find it quite helpful.
Measure a ring you already have
Take a ring that already fits the finger on which the new ring will be worn. A ring fits when it can be put on and taken off easily, but does not fall when worn.
With a sharp pencil, draw a circle around the inside of the ring and measure its diameter with a ruler. If you want to measure the ring directly on the ruler, you may not be able to see the millimetres correctly. Check the resulting millimetres in our ring size chart to see the size you’re looking for. For example, if the circle you’ve drawn is 15.3 mm, you’re size would be UK I – EU 48.
Measure your finger
If you don’t use rings very often and don’t have any around to measure, you could also measure your own finger.
Take a piece of paper approximately 2 cm long (¾ inches) and wrap it around your finger.
Wherever the paper overlaps, mark it with a sharp pencil. That would give you the circumference of your finger.
The MJJewels ring size guide
To make it even easier and make sure you find the perfect size, we’ve created The MJJewels Ring Size Guide. An A4 sheet designed to help you choose the right ring size. Just print it scaled to 100% and make sure you don’t adjust the size to not deform the measures.
Our guide also comes with a cuttable measurer to check the size of every finger.
Tips for measuring your ring
- Make sure you measure the finger on which you want to wear the ring. Every finger is different, actually, our dominant hands are slightly bigger.
- Wider rings usually fit a little tighter, so try to measure a ring of similar width.
- When we’re hot or cold, or after exercising and sweating, our fingers may be bigger or smaller, so measure your finger when you’re at normal body temperature.
- In the case of big knuckles, you should measure your finger twice, around the knuckle and near the place where the ring will sit, and choose an average between the two measurements. The ring should be big enough to pass through your knuckle yet not too loose.
