3 Ways to Find Your Ring Size
Don't know your ring size? Fear not, I'm here to help!
So it turns out, not everybody is a compulsive ring-buyer like me... ahem! But don't worry, I have 3 simple ways to find your ring size.
My plastic ring sizers are available to buy from my shop for £2 with free U.K. postage. They come in a little packet, as pictured, with detailed instructions on how to use them.
Simply form a ring and place the sizer over your finger/thumb. Tighten to a snug fit - it's also a good idea to check that this size will fit over your knuckle, as you would want your ring to fit. Then read the letter that the sizer indicates. Bravo!
The BEST thing is that my plastic ring sizers are 100% refundable if you go on to order a ring from me. That means the £2 you spend on a ring sizer is deducted from the cost of any of my rings - #winning!
2. Ask a jeweller to size a ring you already have
Pop into your local high street jeweller and ask them to size a ring you already own - simple! Many jewellers are more than happy to help, and have a ring triblet like this one pictured, simply slide the ring down and read the size.
If you're feeling extra sneaky, some craft stores like Hobbycraft sell plastic ring sizing triblets on the shop floor. You could size your ring yourself and carry on with your shopping!
3. Ask a jeweller to size your fingers
Alternatively, you could ask a jeweller to size your fingers with one of these tools. With this finger gauge you can try a few different sizes to see which is a comfortable fit.
Some handy tips to keep in mind!
- If you're looking at a ring with a thick band, like my chunky brass heart ring or 5 of my stacking skinny rings together, it's important to make sure you measure your finger across where the band will sit. Fingers come in all shapes and sizes, for some a measurement at the base of the finger is the same just before the knuckle. But for me, the base of my finger is waisted from regular ring-wearing, so to wear a chunky band I have to size up. Definitely worth checking!
- Also note how your ring size might change over the course of a day. Fingers swell and (un)swell at different points in the day, usually because of temperature. This shouldn't affect your ring size too much, but the degree of swelling can vary from person to person. So it may be worth checking your size at a few points during the day.
- If you're likely to see me in person, at a fair or out and about, I always have one of my plastic ring-sizers on me! I'm always happy to help with ring-sizing.
- Midi rings can be measured in any of the above ways, the plastic ring sizers also include the smaller midi sizer, so long as you're measuring where you want the ring to sit, you're good to go!
- As a general rule-of-thumb, midi rings are usually 10-12 alphabet sizes smaller. E.g. I wear a size P on my ring finger; a Medium (size E) midi-ring fits perfectly.
- If you know your American ring size and are looking for a conversion to a UK alphabet letter, I strongly advise using one of my plastic ring sizers. Conversion charts for this can vary so much, I'm yet to find one that I'm 100% confident in!
There are already a few new ring designs in the works, which I'm so excited to share, so knowing your ring size is going to come in handy. From personalised pieces to simple style - there's bound to be a ring for everyone!
