MEASURING YOUR RING SIZE
Here are a few things you should consider before measuring your finger:
- If you measure your finger and find that your size is in between two different sizes, you should pick the larger size.
- Remember that due to temperature changes your finger may shrink in the cold or expand in the heat. The best time to measure your finger is at the end of the day, when your fingers are at their largest.
- Your ring should fit comfortably, so that it is tight enough not to fall off, but loose enough to slide over your knuckles.
- Finally, every ring size chart will vary slightly in its measurements, as there is no internationally recognised standard. Any previous measurement you may have been given by other jewellers may have been measured on a different system and could vary slightly.
INTERNATIONAL RING SIZING
If you already know your ring size in a US or European size, then please see the above conversion chart to see what this would equate to in a UK size.
HOW TO MEASURE YOUR RING SIZE
You can measure your ring size in a number of ways; in the UK it is measured alphabetically, in the US it is done numerically, or you can measure the Internal Diameter or Circumference.
MEASURING A RING YOU ALREADY OWN
How to measure the Inside Diameter of your Ring:

2. Measure your finger:
- Wrap a narrow strip of paper or piece of string comfortably around your intended finger.
- Mark the end (where it meets) and measure the distance. This is the circumference.
- Match the measurement to the circumference column in the above conversion chart. If it falls between 2 sizes, we advise you to order the larger sizes.
BUYING A RING AS A GIFT
The best and easiest way to find out someone else’s ring size is to borrow one of their rings, making sure it is from the correct finger, and measure the inside diameter. Then look it up against the Ring Size Conversion Chart.
