There is no doubt about the fact that women love jewelry, and one common piece of jewelry liked by every woman is a nice ring. It is easy to carry and suits almost any attire. However, in order to get a perfect ring, it is very important to get your ring size right.

If you are hooked on any online diamond or pearl earrings, it is extremely important that you know your correct ring size before ordering one. The easiest way to do this, is visiting a local jeweler and getting your ring size measured professionally. Nevertheless, if you want to save your time and energy, there are two simple ways in which you can measure your ring size at home. Let’s see what they are…

Method number 1

Things you will need:

  • A ring which you are wearing presently and which perfectly fits you.
  • A ruler or measuring tape.


  1. Place your ring on the ruler or measuring tape.
  2. Measure the distance between the far ends of inner circle. This will give you the diameter of the ring.

Now, you have the diameter of your ring. There are many ring size charts available online. Order the ring size which is exactly same as the diameter you measured.

Method number 2

Things you will need:

  • A strip of paper which is about half an inch wide and 6 inches long.
  • A Pen or pencil
  • A ruler or measuring tape


  1. Simply wrap the strip of paper around the finger you wish to wear the ring on.
  2. Make a mark on the strip where two ends are meeting on overlapping.
  3. Now, put the strip on the ruler or measuring tape and measure the length.

The ring size charts that you will find online will even have ring sizes as per the circumference. Refer any one of charts and there you go.

Lastly, it is important to keep in mind that you take measurements when your body is at a normal temperature. It is observed that fingers tend to shrink when the body temperature is very cold. Next, usually our fingers are larger at knuckles and smaller at the base. If this is the case with you too, it is recommended to take two measurements and choose a size in between.
