Has it ever happened to you that you were scrolling a jewelry website and simply fell in love with a gorgeous ring? You went ahead to order it but couldn’t because you don’t know the size that will fit you. Shopping from a store is easy because there you can try different sizes and designs and find the best fit, but online can be tricky! Here are a few ways that you can go ahead and find out your ring size while shopping for them online.
Use a String or Measuring Tape
A quite inaccurate size measuring technique is by using a string or a measuring tape. You simply have to wrap around any of these on the circumference of someone’s finger and then mark it. After that, you can simply take it to the store or put it on a size chart and get an idea about the fit. However, jewelers like Tiffany and Co. do not recommend this idea.
Print a Size Chart
Almost every jewelry site has a ring chart that you can get printed. This sheet of paper has circles of various sizes. Take a ring that you already have, try placing it on the chart, and check which circle fits the best with your ring’s circumference, and there you have it. One thing to note here is that ring bands, or broad rings, are a quarter or half size more than sleek ones.
Get Yourself a Ring Sizer
A super affordable way to know your ring size is by getting yourself a ring sizer. It is a reusable string that you can fit around your finger, and a pointer will show you your answer. Remember that the band of the sizer must come out smoothly from your finger without getting stuck at the knuckles and should also not fall off when you shake your hand.
