Ring Size Guide

How to find your ring size?

Sterling silver rings are great jewelry to have in your collection because they are versatile, durable, and come in many different styles and designs. When you are looking for a new ring for your silver ring collection, finding the right ring size is very important. When you’re looking for silver rings online, it’s even more important to make sure you know your ring size.

How do you measure your ring size?

Measuring your ring size is very easy and you don’t need to do this every time you buy a new ring unless you’re buying it for a new finger. A jeweler can measure your ring size using special measuring equipment, but you can also easily do it at home. Finding your ring size won’t take a minute or so.

How to measure your ring size with a tape measure?

You can easily measure your ring size with a tape measure at home. Wrap the tape measure around your finger. It must wrap around the base of the finger just below the knuckle. To mark the dimensions, use the marker to draw a line where the tape measure is attached. Open the tape measure and note the size where the mark is. Once you know your finger size (in cm/inch), you can use these measurements to determine ring size from the table below.

If you don’t have a tape measure handy, you can measure your fingers the same way with a piece of string or paper. Once you’ve wrapped it around your fingers, place the string or paper on a ruler to see how long it really is. When you know how long it is, you can use that length to find the corresponding ring size.

Keep these factors in mind when measuring your ring size.

Here are some great tips to consider before you find your ring size. It’s important to remember that the size of your fingers can vary throughout the day. Your fingers contract when cold and expand when hot. You also need to consider that your knuckles may also affect the size of the ring. The ring must fit the knuckles, if you have larger knuckles, measure them when measuring your fingers. Once you have the base and joint measurements, find the size between those two measurements. Rings with too large bottoms will roll too much and become uncomfortable. Here are some electronic and electronic tips on finger size.

  • Temperature: Temperature affects the size of your fingers. When you are hot, your fingers will swell slightly and become larger. When the weather is cold, the fingers shrink. If you want to know your ring size, measure it at the end of the day. If you measure it when your fingers are cold, the size will not be correct. It is most likely too small, which means you will be ordering a ring that is too small.
  • Don’t just measure once: It’s a good idea to measure your finger one more time before buying a silver ring. Your fingers do change size throughout the day, and if you only take one measurement, it may not be correct. Use the same tape measure or string to measure your ring size several times.
  • Consider ring type when measuring ring size. When trying to figure out your ring size, consider the type of sterling silver ring you want to buy. For wider rings, you need a slightly larger size, if you are buying a wide ring, add 0.25 to 0.5 size. When you order a gorgeous ring or make a ring, make sure you choose the right size, these rings are difficult to get bigger or smaller, so finding the right size is critical.
  • Different finger sizes: Your fingers are different sizes, even if the fingers of one hand are not the same size as the fingers of the other hand. Your dominant hand will be slightly thicker than the fingers of your other hand. So when you’re looking for a silver ring for your dominant hand, it’s a slightly larger size. There’s also blood. When you’re calculating your ring size, make sure to measure each finger you want to buy a ring for.
    Measure your knuckles: Each ring must go over the knuckles, keep this in mind when measuring your ring size. It’s a good idea to measure the base of your fingers and knuckles. If you have large knuckles, your ring may not fit over your knuckles.
  • If you are between two ring sizes, choose the larger ring size: When you measure your finger, you may find that both sizes seem to fit. If this is the case, choose the larger of the two sizes. If you choose a smaller ring size, you may end up not wearing it properly.

Some rings are resizable, so if you receive a gift ring that is too small or too large, you may be able to resize it, a process that doesn’t take too long and isn’t very expensive. In the US, if you resize your silver ring to the size of your local jewelry, it will cost you $5 to $20, depending on your local jeweler. But not all rings can perform this procedure. Some rings cannot be resized. Rings like eternity rings, ornate rings, and silver rings generally cannot be made big or small. Jewelers will usually let you know which of their rings can be resized and which cannot. That’s why it’s important to make sure you find the right ring size before buying a new sterling silver ring.

 

Find out someone else’s ring size:

Finding someone else’s ring size can be a little difficult. The safest way to find out their ring size is to find a ring they’ve already worn, one that fits comfortably and has a similar design to the one you’re buying. You can also ask family members or friends to help you determine the size.

Don’t panic! ! Here’s what to do when your ring gets stuck on your finger.

The first thing to do is take a deep breath and calm down! If you panic and try to remove the ring multiple times, it can cause swelling and make the problem worse. Wash your hands with very cold water, which will help your fingers contract a little, and apply plenty of soap to your fingers. This will most likely solve your problem, but if you can’t remove the ring from your finger, lube, olive oil, hand cream, or even butter can help.
