A. DIAMETER METHOD -
Ring size is determined by the inner diameter of the ring. Thus, we have provided you with a ring size circles diagram below for
measuring your exact ring size. Please follow the instruction for accurate measurement:
1. Print out the diagram below or zoom in on this webpage for whichever device you are on, and make sure the measurement
below the ring picture matches the real-world length by using a ruler as a reference.
For instance, the line under ring “size 3” should be exactly 14 mm or 1.4 cm.
If you chose to zoom in on this webpage instead of the printing method, please make sure to not accidentally zoom out
while doing the measurement.
2. Find a ring that you already have and fits comfortably on your finger.
3. Place the ring over the diagram to match the nearest circle size with the inside of your ring.
4. If the ring size falls between the two sizes, we would advise you to choose the larger size.
B. CIRCUMFERENCE METHOD -
This method determines the ring size by using the circumference of your finger. The finger size strip below will aid you in this measurement. Please follow the steps below to achieve the ring size:
1. Print out the ring size strip diagram below
Make sure to match the length ratio of the diagram with the real-world measurement. In this case, the length
between line A and line B must be 3.5 inches or 8.9 cm.
Or you can download the PDF file below, which is set to the size of "A4 paper" and the strip at its correct size.
2. Carefully cut the diagram out, as well as, the slit inside the strip at the left end.
3. Wrap the strip around the finger you wish to measure with the scale facing upwards as shown in the diagram Fig. 2.
4. Pull the narrow end through the slit until the strip fits snugly on your finger.
Make sure that the strip can MOVE THROUGH the widest part of the finger, such as the KNUCKLE.
5. The number that lines up with the slit represents your finger ring size circumference as shown in Fig. 1.
