Method 1: Measure the ring size of a matching ring
Requirements: Well-fitting ring and ruler
- Measure the diameter of the ring with the ruler, so the inside of the ring without edges
- The number of millimeters you read is your ring size
Example : Below the inside of the ring measures 16 millimeters, so the ring size is 16
Another way to measure a suitable ring is by using our ring size circles.
- Print here our ring size document with scale 100%
- Place your ring on one of the circles
- Make sure that the purple edge of the circle is visible and that your ring fits exactly in it
- The circle where the ring fits best is your ring size
Method 2: Measure your ring size without a fitting ring
With this method we measure the circumference of your finger and then we use a ring size table to convert the ring sizes.
You will need: String or strip of paper, ruler and pen
- Put the string or strip of paper around the finger you want to measure
- Mark with a pen a line where the string meets
- Place the strip along the ruler and read the circumference of your fingers in millimeters
- You have now measured the circumference of your finger, look in the ring size table which size belongs to this.
Example : the circumference of your finger is 50 millimeters, the corresponding ring size is 16 millimeters, so you have ring size 16.

With the ring size table you can also convert a ring size. For example, if you have ever bought a ring in American size, you can read the corresponding European ring size.
Tips for measuring your ring size
- Determine in advance which finger you want to wear the ring on. Every finger is different and the ring size will therefore differ per finger.
- Note the thickness of the ring. A thin ring often runs a bit larger, it is sometimes better to take it half a size smaller. A thicker ring often fits smaller, it is sometimes better to take it half a size larger.
- The weather affects the thickness of your fingers. In warm weather your fingers expand and in cold weather they are a bit thinner. So measure your ring size at a normal temperature.
