Guide to Engagement Ring Sizes

One’s engagement ring will likely be one of the most meaningful pieces you will own in your lifetime. These accessories are symbols of your commitment to marriage, an unending, unconditional love, and the promise of a wedding to come. This ring should be flawless in design, construction, and fit for all these reasons. The correct fit is essential because this ring is designed to be worn every day for a lifetime. While having your ring resized down the line as your body changes over time is a relatively painless process, you want to ensure a perfect fit initially.

Why is the Correct Ring Size So Important?

The size of the ring determines its wearability. If the ring isn’t wearable, then it loses its purpose. A perfect fit should be a priority for the wearer. For one, if the ring is too big, the worst is more likely to happen – that is, the ring can slip off and become lost or damaged. It is also quite distracting to have a loose ring that moves around a lot on the finger. On the other hand, a ring that is too tight can cause discomfort. A ring that is too small pinches the skin, is unflattering for the shape of the finger, and can cause inadequate circulation, which is quite dangerous.

Determine Ring Size at Home or with a Jeweler

There are several ways you can accurately gauge your perfect ring size. You have a few options if you need to find your ring size at home. First, you can order a ring sizer online with a variety of plastic rings you can use to measure your digits. You can also use the string trick, wherein you wrap a string around your finger and mark where the ends meet. Then you’ll measure the length of the string with a ruler and use the Internet to convert that measurement to a fairly accurate ring size. However, the most reliable method is to visit a professional at your local jewelry store and have them tell you your perfect ring size.
