How to check your Ring Size

Easily determine your ring size from the comfort of your home.

What you will need:

  1. Pen
  2. Paper or ribbon
  3. Scissors
  4. Ruler with millimeter markings
  5. Jewellery Palace "Finger Circumference to Ring Size Chart". The chart can be found below.


We need to get the circumference of your finger.

  1. Cut two strips of paper or ribbon about half inch wide by five inches long.
  2. Wrap one stirp around your finger over the knuckle area and mark where it touches itself.
  3. Do the same with the other strip at the base of your finger.
  4. Measure the lengths of each in millimeters.
  5. Add both lengths and divide by two to the circumference of your finger.
  6. Use our "Finger Circumference to Ring Size Chart" to determine ring size.

Additional Tips:

  1. I recommend a strip of paper when measuring or any material that will not stretch during the process. Do not use string, floss or any other material that can stretch when taking your measurements.
  2. I recommend you have someone help you to wrap your finger.
  3. Do not wrap your fingers too tightly. Your skin can be easily squashed down, so do not use too much force when wrapping the strip around your finger.
  4. Keep fingers straight when wrapping the strip around your knuckle.
  5. Take the measurements at the hottest time of the day. You fingers swell slightly when it is hot. Women's fingers can also swell during their monthly cycle. For pregnant women I do not recommend wearing rings during pregnancy.
  6. Measure same finger on both hands. Your dominant hand should have slightly larger fingers.
  7. If you have very large knuckles consider ordering a size up. A larger size is easier to work with than a smaller size.
  8. If you are getting a measurement between sizes, always go with the larger size.
  9. Wider bands fit more snugly than narrow bands. Consider going a 1/4 size up for rings 5-6mm wide and 1/2 size for rings 7-8mm wide.
  10. The average size for women is 6-7 and for men is 9-11.
