You’ve finally decided which ring to buy, but not sure about the size? Determining the ring size is important, especially in two situations. First, if you are shopping online and won’t get a chance to try the ring before purchasing it. Second, if the ring will be a gift to your loved one. Don’t worry; we’ve got you covered. If you want to learn more about ring size, keep reading our guide.
Let’s start with the basics. The most important thing when it comes to the ring size is tightness. Many people usually go for a much tighter ring than they are supposed to pick. The ring should fit your finger so it does not fall, but it also needs to be loose enough to slide over your knuckle. For some people, their knuckle is larger than the rest of their fingers. In that case, you should choose a size in between them.
There are also outside factors that affect the ring size. The main ones are temperature and time of the day. It’s wrong to assume that our finger size stays the same all day. The best time of the day for measuring is the evenings. Because your fingers will be warm, and their size will be closer to the actual size. As for the temperature, cold weather will make your finger half a size smaller, while hot weather will make them half a size bigger. So be aware of the temperature and try to measure your finger in average temperatures.
Yes, there are more details! Did you know that your right and left fingers could have different sizes? So make sure that you measure both hands. Furthermore, there are two instances that you should consider going with a bigger size. If you are torn between two sizes, we would recommend choosing the bigger size. Additionally, if your ring of choice has a thicker band or considerably bigger stone, we would advise sizing up. At the end of the day, comfort is the key!
Aside from all the information above, let’s suppose that your ring will be a present. Obviously, the ideal way would be taking one of their rings without them noticing. But if this is not possible, you can order the average size ring. That would be L1/2-N for women and S-T1/2 for men.
