While you will get the most accurate sizing when having your finger measured in a local jewelry store , AppealingWeddingBands.com has also produced a downloadable ring sizing guide for you to print and determine your ring size in two easy ways all in the ease and comfort of your own home.
Download and print our Ring Sizing Guide. Before printing, please ensure that page scaling is set to None or 100% in your Print Options. You can use the ruler in the printed page to validate the page scaling.
The guilde provides two methods. The first method measures your finger size. The second method can be used to measure an existing ring's size. For detailed information please follow the instructions in the printed guide.
Keep in Mind!
- Be sure to measure your finger towards the end of the day when fingers are thickest. Measuring a cold finger may result in an inaccurate measurement and a smaller ring size.
- Keep in mind that each finger could have a different size, so don't presume that a ring that fits your left ring finger will also fit your right ring finger.
- A wider band can be worn more loosely.
- Large knuckles/hands should wear a slightly loose ring, while slimmer knuckles/smaller hands will require a tighter ring.
- Remember to measure across the knuckle of your chosen finger since this is the widest part of your finger.
- A good way for a "rough-and-ready" measurement is to find a ring that is just smaller than the second knuckle of the finger. This way the fit is comfortable but will not slide off the finger.
- If in doubt, choose the smaller size. Remember, more sizing mistakes are made by ordering rings too large rather than too small.
International Ring Sizes
While the American ring size formula is the most commonly used, there are many different international ring size formulas as well. If you already know your ring size and just need to convert it to another scale, see our International ring size conversion chart .
