Ring size charts are available on the websites of jewelry companies such as Zales and Lumera Diamonds. The charts can be printed and ring shapes can be measured either with string, the chart or another ring.Continue Reading
The fingers of each hand can be slightly different and should be measured individually. The size of the ring must allow for the jewelry to slip easily over the knuckle. Fingers should be measured when the hands are warm, not cold, to eliminate the possibility of shrinkage. Finally, if a correct ring size remains uncertain, purchasing a ring larger than intended and resizing the band at a jewelry store is an easy alternative.
The ring charts provided by Zales and Lumera Diamonds also provide a paper slider that can be printed out and wrapped comfortably around the finger to determine the correct ring size. For best results, this should be done by someone else. However, if this is not possible, both jewelry sites suggest taking a ring and comparing it to the sizes on the chart. The inside of the ring must match one of the sizes.
Ring size can also be measured by wrapping a piece of string or ribbon around one finger, and then comparing the loop to the sizes on the chart. The fit must be comfortable and snug but not too tight.Learn more about Rings
