Pearl Ring Size

A ring is the most intimate of jewels and is often worn every day. It should fit well and feel comfortable, so here are some tips about correctly sizing your ring.

  • Measure your finger size at the end of the day when your fingers are at their largest (like sizing shoes).
  • Don't measure finger sizes when your hands are cold; let them warm up to room temperature.
  • The width of a ring is an important factor in determining the right finger size.
  • A wither ring may require a slightly larger size, because it covers more of your finger.
  • Wrap a piece of string or a strip of paper around your finger.
  • Mark the point where the two ends meet.
  • Measure the string or paper against a ruler to get the circumference of your finger.
  • Divide that by 3.14 to get the diameter of your finger.
