Engagement Ring Size Guide
Introduction to Engagement Ring Sizing
It is vitally important to make sure your engagement ring fits just right. Because engagement rings are worn for long periods of time, they must be exactly the right size. If they are too loose, they can slip off easily, which should be prevented at all costs, considering their sentimental and monetary value. If the rings are too small, they either will not fit or will be too tight. Getting a ring stuck on your finger is difficult to get off and painful to wear. Proposing and being able to immediately put the ring on the person’s finger is more ideal than finding out the ring is completely the wrong size.
What You Need to Know About Engagement Ring Sizing
There is a large variance in ring sizes as every hand is different. For women, the average ring finger ranges from size 3 to 9, with 6 being the most popular. For men, the average is between 6 and 13, though some people fall outside this range. This is why it is essential to get accurate ring sizing: there are simply too many variations to eyeball it and then be wrong. Whether you do the ring sizing at home or at a local jeweler, you will want to make certain it is accurate.
Measure Your Engagement Ring Size at Home
The easiest way to size your finger at home is with a string. Wrap it around the base of the ring finger, and then mark the spot where the ends meet with a pen or marker. Measure the string with a ruler, specifically in millimeters (commonly abbreviated as “mm”). After you have your length, seek out a ring size chart, and match your measurements. You may want to repeat this process a few more times throughout the day, as temperature changes can alter one’s ring size.
How to Find Your Partner’s Ring Size
The easiest way is to ask. You have probably discussed marriage beforehand so there’s a good chance they will be expecting the question. For a more covert approach, you can claim it’s for a fashion ring or curiosity’s sake. Ask one of their friends that may already know the answer. If they have a favorite ring they typically wear on one of their ring fingers, you can easily take this piece to a jeweler to learn the size. Measure the ring she wears on her ring finger if you do not want its disappearance to cause any alarm or suspicion.
