When you and your fiancée choose to get your engagement ring and wedding bands together, you do not have to worry about a ring size chart or measurement methods. You will visit your jeweler and have him measure it. If you bring a ring with you, the jeweler will use a mandrel, depicted to the right. If you need to measure your finger sizes, the jeweler uses a ring finger sizer guage, depicted below.
However, when are looking for an engagement ring to surprise your bride to be, you order online, or you simply want to save a trip to the jeweler; knowing the exact finger size is important. You want to make sure that the ring fits comfortably on her finger, and it’s not so big that it will easily sleep off of her finger. You also want to save her an extra trip to the jeweler to resize it .
It is important to note that resizing a ring is only possible if the diamonds are set halfway around the band. Eternity rings are impossible to resize unless the diamonds are pulled out of the ring, increases resizing costs.
Your first option for measuring is to purchase an inexpensive plastic mandrel. However there are a few in home methods that you can use.
Here are two methods that can be used at home
Method 1: Measure Existing Ring
If you already have a ring in the right size measure the distance between the inside of the upper edge and the inside of the lower edge. This will give you the distance in millimeters or inches. Print a chart and check what is the size of the ring in numbers.
For example 2.34 inches or 59.5 mm is a size 9.
Method 2: Use a String or Paper Strip
– Cut a string and wrap it around the base of the ring finger.
– Mark the string where it ends.
– Measure the string’s length with a ruler.
– The number closest to the mark on the string is the ring size.
– Get a chart that displays half and quarter sizes and translate your measurement into a ring size number.
– If you have a paper strip repeat the same steps you used with the string.
When is is necessary to rely on a ring size chart, it is beneficial to understand them. Standard ring sizes are given in millimeters based on the inner circumference of the ring. Rings are sized on a standard scale so that a woman’s size 6 is the same from jeweler to jeweler.
Before you start to measure you have to make sure to take into consideration the following facts:
You have to pay attention to the knuckle size to make sure the ring slides over it.
Fingers tend to change size with the different seasons. They swell up in the summer. You have to make sure that the ring fits comfortably during the summer months.
Wider bands fit tighter. It is recommended to add quarter of a size when you buy a wide ring. Remember to warm up your hands before you measure.
Our dominant hand tends to be slightly bigger. Measure your size on the finger that you are going to wear the ring on
Another ring size chart may only display whole numbers. For the measurment to be accurate, use a chart that displays whole size, half size and one quarter of a size so the measurement precise.
If your finger is swollen for some reason don’t measure it.
