If you are unsure of your ring size, you can purchase either a multisizer plastic ring sizer or a ring gauge set from my webshop. Alternatively, you can pop into a local jeweller for a fitting.
There are a number of factors that affect ring size besides the actual measurement of your fingers.
- The difference in size between finger joints and the place where a ring sits affects the choice of ring size. Your ring should fit your finger comfortably; snug enough so that it will not fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckle.
- Fingers change size in response to body chemistry and temperature, sometimes by several sizes throughout the day. For best results measure your finger size at the end of the day when your fingers are warm (fingers are smaller in the early morning and when cold). Better still, measure your size several times throughout the day to estimate an average reading.
- Your ring size is also affected by the specific ring. Wider rings and those in which a stone or setting projects toward the finger will require larger sizes than thinner rings, even for the same finger.
