Did you know you can cause permanent damage to your finger if you wear a ring that’s too tight?
A ring that fits you correctly can be the difference between potentially losing your finger, and that’s why it’s so important to wear the correct size.
It’s actually pretty simple to measure your ring size, in fact, you can easily measure your ring size at home.
Here is a step-by-step guide to accurately measure your ring size.
Measure Your Finger
If you’re wondering how to measure your ring size with a measuring tape, it’s pretty simple, and will most likely give you the most accurate measurement.
Take the measuring tape and wrap it around the base of your finger where you want your ring to sit and determine how tight or loose you want the ring to be.
Make sure you leave enough slack so that the ring will slide comfortably over your knuckle.
If you don’t have a measuring tape, don’t worry — you can also use a string, a strip of paper, or even a piece of floss.
Keep in mind that the same fingers can be different sizes on different hands, so you want to make sure you’re measuring the exact finger you’ll be wearing the ring on. So, if you’re wondering how to measure your engagement ring size to get the most accurate measurement, make sure you’re measuring your ring finger on your left hand.

Mark Your Measurement
If you’re using a measuring tape, look at where the end overlaps to the rest of the tape and take a note of what number it’s at in both inches and millimeters.
If you’re using a string, floss, or strip of paper, mark with a pen where it overlaps. Then, measure from the end of the string to the mark you made and measure the length also in either inches or millimeters.
Some ring retailers record their ring sizes in inches while others choose to use millimeters, so it’s smart to have both numbers recorded.
Compare to a Sizing Chart
Once you have your measurement in both inches and millimeters you can compare it to a sizing chart. These charts can be found by doing a quick internet search.
Using these charts you can take the measurement you recorded of your finger and convert it to a certain ring size measurement.
For standard ring sizes, a ring size 3 equals 14 mm, and every half-size matches up to a 0.4 mm increment. For example, a 3.5 ring size would equal 14.4 mm, a size 4 ring would equal 14.8 mm, and so on and so forth.
The average ring size for women is a 6 or a 7, and for men, the most common sizes are 10 and 11.
If your measurement falls between two sizes, it’s best to choose the larger size.
