How to measure your ring size
Estimating your ring size:
If you are buying the ring as a gift, and don't know the exact size, there are several guidelines that you can use to estimate a ring size. The average size for a woman's ring is 7. The average size for a man's ring is 11. A very petiite woman (under 100 lbs) would probably wear a size 5 ring. A man of about 140 lbs. with slender hands would probably wear a size 7 or 8. A large man (over 220 lbs) with heavy fingers would probably wear a size 13.
Keep in mind that these are just averages, and each person's fingers have different characteristics. For example, some people have larger knuckles that would require an extra size.

How to measure your ring size:
You can measure your exact ring size using the information below. All you need is a ruler and a strip of paper about 1/4-inch wide and 3 or 4 inches long. Wrap the paper strip around your ring finger (make sure you leave room for the ring to pass over the knuckle). The easiest way to do this is to tape the leading edge of the paper strip to your knuckle. Wrap the strip around, and mark it or fold it over at the spot where it meets the leading edge. Now unwrap the strip and measure the distance to the mark with a ruler.
The exact measurement for each ring size is shown on the paper strips below.
Note: after you measure the strip, it is a good idea to cut it to the correct length and tape it together to make a paper "trial" ring. Try your paper ring on -- if it is tight when it passes over the knuckle, you may want to order a size larger (the paper can stretch slightly to pass the knuckle, but a platinum ring will not stretch).
Measuring the size of an existing ring:
If you have an existing ring that fits, but you don't know the size, you can make a print of the chart below. Place your ring over the circles, and choose the size of the circle that best fits the inner edge of your actual ring.
Note: to assure that you have an actual size print, use a ruler against the inch guide below. If it does not measure 6 inches on your print, then the circles will not be accurate for sizing. Try re-printing the page at a larger size (for example, 110%) until the inch guide below matches your ruler.
