How to know my ring size?

Undoubtedly, one of the most common questions of our customers abroad, of those who buy our jewelry on request or from those looking for a surprise engagement jewel is, how do I know the size of the ring?

If you're here to find out the easiest way to take the size of a ring or ring, you'll get to the right place. Then we'll show you the most common ways to find the size of a ring from the comfort of your home.

Ring size with paper

This is one of the methods for measuring your more traditional ring. All you'll need is, a strip of paper, a pencil and a ruler. Once you have these three elements, we can start.

  1. Paper pull: Take the paper strip and shoot it on the finger you want to measure. It surrounds the finger at the height of the knuckle, so that it is well adjusted and that there is nothing loose.

Remember that you must measure the finger and hand you will use the ring on. The same finger can have different measures if you do it in the opposite hand.

  1. Mark the line: with the pencil it marks a straight line on the strip of paper on the part where the beginning and end of the one crosses each other.
  2. Measuring: remove the paper and stretch it out. With the help of the ruler (or one metre) it measures from the beginning of the paper to the line you tire with the pencil.
  3. You have your size: the resulting number in millimeters, you can compare it to our measuring board and that's your ring size.

Ring size with another ring

Between your jewels or those of the person who wants to know his size, look for a ring that goes well in size and with the help of a ruler, try to measure with the maximum precision its inner diameter. The resulting number in millimeters multiplied by 3.14 that will be the perimeter of the ring. If you subtract 40, that's your ring size.

Ring size with template

Finally, if you're looking to save yourself calculations and measurements, there's another solution. Look for a ring that goes well and use a ring diameter template. Put the ring over the different circles until you find the one that matches best. That's your size.
