Need to buy a ring for bae but don’t know her size? Shopping online and having trouble understanding the complex sizing charts? Don’t worry we’ve got your back and your fingers! Although it can be daunting, there are a few simple ways you can go about checking your ring size.
- Get Sized at your jeweler: Yes, this is basic and simple, and also obvious, but the most accurate way to get your ring size would be through your trusted jeweler.
- Tapered Candle: If you’re buying a ring as a surprise, take an existing ring and slide it down a tapered candle. Measure the candle’s circumference where the ring stops sliding.
- Cold fingers: Don’t measure cold fingers, as that is when the fingers are the smallest. The correct time to measure your fingers would be at the end of the day when they’re the biggest.
- Try this sizing chart: Cut a thin piece of paper and wrap it around your finger. Then measure this piece of paper against a ruler and these measurements correspond to these sizes:
Size 4: 1 13/16 inches
