How to measure ring size?

If you need to measure the size of the ring, both gold and any other metal or material, you can do it yourself at home. You can also visit the nearest jewelry store, where sales assistants will help in this matter. They usually use special patterns, the so-called "fingers".

Tips: how to measure ring size by yourself

Ring size is nothing more than the diameter of the product in millimeters. If there is a ring that is perfectly “sitting” on the finger, but its size is unknown, you only need to measure the distance from one edge to the opposite with a ruler. It turned out, for example, 16.8 mm, which means that the size is 17, since it is necessary to round up. It is important to remember that the dimensions of the rings have a “step” of ½ centimeters and are considered as 17, 17.5, 18, and so on.

Determination by thread

To determine the size of the ring on any finger, you can use the thread. To do this, you need to take the average thickness of the thread (for example,as for knitting) and wind around the base of the finger with five turns - winding one after another, and not on each other. To wind a finger should not be too tight, but not too loose. When five turns are made, you need to cross the thread and cut it at the crossing point. Then unwind the thread and measure its length again in millimeters.

This value must be divided by the number 15.7, the result will be the size of the ring on this finger. If the value is not an integer, it should be rounded up. For example, the result is 18.2, so the size will be 18.5. And only if the ring is very thin, it is better to round to the nearest value, in this case - to 18.

When measuring at home, you must also take into account that the product must pass through a joint, the width of which may be greater than the width at the base of the finger.
