How To Measure Your Ring Size

Here's How To Determine Your Ring Size

We get a lot of questions about ring size here at Decor Raro. Because we sell a lot of our rings online, our customers don’t get a chance to try a ring on before they buy it. That’s why we offer a ring size guide that can help you get the right fit.

Prepping for Measurement

Before you begin taking your measurements, pick the finger on which you want to wear your ring. The fingers on your dominant hand tend to be larger than those on your non-dominant hand, so keep that in mind when measuring for your ring size.

Ensure that your finger is at its normal size before taking a measurement. Cold weather can cause your fingers to shrink a bit, while heat or water retention caused by food, medications, or illness can cause finger swelling.

To determine your ring size, do the following:

  • Use a piece of string or dental floss and wrap it around the base of your finger.

  • Use a pen to mark the point on the string where the end meets.

  • Use a millimeter ruler to measure the string.

  • Choose the closest measurement to the chart above to find your ring size.

Tips for best results:

  • Allow enough room to accommodate your knuckle.

  • Bear in mind, different fingers on the same and the opposite hand may have different sizes. Therefore, measure the specific finger on which you are planning to wear the ring.

  • Measure your finger at the end of the day when your finger is likely to be largest.
