Ring Size Guide

Unsure of your ring size? Wondering what ring size fits best? How to find your ring size at home? Or even how to find someone’s ring size without them knowing? All of this and more will be answered in our ring size guide…

Buying rings online can be an absolute nightmare if you’re unsure of the ring size you need. But finding that perfect ring size can actually be done quite easily from the comfort of your own home, and we are going to tell you how!

Before we start though, just a quick note. If you’re measuring your own ring size, your fingers will actually be smaller in size in the mornings while they are still cold. We recommend that you measure your ring size in the late afternoon/evening when your fingers are at their largest.


How To find Your Own Ring Size

Finding your own ring size can be done in just a few simple steps. Just follow along and find your perfect ring size in just a few minutes.

All you need to find your ring size is a tape measure or if you don’t have one a straight ruler and a piece of string ribbon, thin piece of paper or anything that you can wrap around your finger and pen/marker. Oh and of course you need the ring size chart that we kindly provide in this guide! Got what you need? OK then, let’s get started…
