How to Measure Your Own Ring Size

Alright, let's embark on the fun part - measuring ring size! Armed with a string and a dash of determination, the perfect fit is well within reach. Here's how to do it like a pro, right from the comfort of your home:

Measuring with String

Grab a piece of dental floss or thin string, wrap it snugly around the base of your finger, and then mark the point where the floss or string meets. The next step is to lay it flat on an even surface and measure the length in millimeters. Voila! You've got your circumference, and with the help of our handy conversion chart below, you're all set to pick the perfect ring size.

MM TIP: While using string or floss for measurements, avoid pulling them excessively tight. If stretched too much, they might give you a larger measurement than your actual ring finger size, leading to rings that end up being too big for a comfortable fit. Keep it snug but not overly tight for accurate results and a flawless ring-wearing experience

How to Measure Someone Else's Ring Size

Planning a surprise or hunting for great jewelry gift ideas? We’ve got your back! Measuring someone else’s ring size doesn’t have to be a mission impossible – there are sneaky ways to get the information you need without blowing your cover or ruining the surprise.

Sneaky Ways to Measure Their Size


  • Check Out Their Existing Rings: Keep an eye out for a ring they wear on the right finger. Borrow it (stealth mode on!), measure it, and consult the ring size chart above to find the size. Just make sure it’s a ring they wear often for the best accuracy.


  • Enlist Friends or Family: Seek the help of their close ones, especially if they share the same gender and approximate finger size. Friends or family members can provide valuable insights without raising suspicion. 


  • Utilize a Ring Mandrel: If they tend to sleep deeply or have predictable routines, a plastic ring sizer (you can find them with a quick google search)  can be your best friend. Gently slide it onto their finger while they sleep and note the size indicated. 


With these subtle tactics, you can unlock the mystery of someone else's correct ring size, ensuring your proposal or gift is met with sheer delight. The key? Patience, a keen eye, and a sprinkle of creativity.
