Accurately sizing your finger

If you are considering purchasing a new Diamond Rocks ring, you will want to be sure that you have the right size. Sizing your own finger does present a little trouble, if you don’t already know what your other rings are. If you are trying to choose the right size for a friend, loved one, or soon-to-be-fiancee, then you are really facing a challenge. However, sizing your finger at home is not impossible, and likely not nearly as difficult as you were imagining.

 

Sizing yourself

If you are sizing yourself, it will involve a piece of string. You must determine the circumference of your finger, and using that information, you can refer to an online chart. Wrap your finger with string, keeping in mind that you don’t want to pull too tightly, or you will be left with an uncomfortable ring fit. Cut the string to size and use a ruler to measure it. As an example, according to the UK Ring Chart, a finger that is 50.5mm will require a size L ring. Once you have used string to measure the circumference of your finger, you can compare it to our helpful chart.

 

Sizing for others

If you are trying to discreetly obtain the ring size of someone else, you have a couple of options. The first is to ask someone who would know. Often a woman’s mother, sister, or best friend will be privy to this information and will be willing to share it. Another option is to take a ring from her jewellery box – one that you know fits her finger, but one that she will not immediately miss – and measure the diameter of it. That measurement can be compared to the same sizing chart (linked above). A word of caution, however: never order a ring for someone else that cannot be resized, unless you are absolutely certain about the fit. It is simply not worth the risk.

As a final note, many jewellers like Diamond Rocks have ring sizing tools that can help you to get the most accurate measure of your finger. These tools also take into account the difference between thin bands and thicker varieties.
