It can be confusing trying to find the perfect fit, especially when you're buying rings online.
Whether you're looking for your first ring or you're already a stacking connoisseur, we've got your back!
Read on for three simple ways to measure your ring size, quick tips, and some info on international ring size conversions.
Summary of Ring Sizes
Our ring sizes all use standard US measurements. Confusingly, different countries (like the UK, France, Germany, Japan and Switzerland) all have their own measurement systems. There are plenty of conversion charts online so you can easily translate between the two.
|Linjer Ring Size||EU Ring Size||Inner Diameter of Ring (mm)||Finger Circumference (mm)|
If you're between sizes, we suggest to choose the bigger size!
FYI: the most common ring sizes for women's ring fingers are 6 and 7.
The Ring Diameter Method:
Measure an existing ring that you own
This one is quick and simple! If you already own a ring that fits the intended finger, simply:
- Measure the inside diameter of the ring in millimetres (see image above)
- Check the chart above in the "Ring Diameter (mm)" column to find the ring size
The Finger Circumference Method #1
Use a Ring Sizer
If you have a ring sizing tool like the one in the picture above, you're in luck! This is a really easy way to figure out your ring size.
- Choose which finger you want the ring for. Remember, your fingers are all different sizes!
- Push the end of the ring sizer through the 'buckle' so it forms a ring shape, and slide the sizer onto the intended finger.
- Adjust the tightness until you have a comfortable fit. Shake your fingers a bit to make sure it's not too loose!
- When you have the right fit, read the size indicated by the arrow. In the example below, the model's middle finger is a size 8.5
Is your finger a whole size? Easy peasy! Select that size.
Is your finger a half size? Most jewelry brands (like us) sell only whole sizes. Adjust the ring sizer to the nearest whole size (i.e. go down a half-size and up a half-size) and choose which one feels more comfortable. If you're not sure, it's always safer to choose the bigger size.

At-home DIY solutions
Okay, okay -- we don't have all ring sizers lying around at home! But you can easily measure your finger at home with some common household items.
You will need a piece of thin string, dental floss or strip of paper; a pen; and a measuring tape or ruler.
- Wrap the intended finger snugly with a piece of string/floss or strip of paper.
- Use a pen to mark where the string/floss/paper meets around your finger
- Straighten out the string/floss/paper and measure it against a ruler in millimetres
- Check the chart in the "Finger Circumference (mm)" to find the ring size
Tips for Measuring Your Ring Size
- Make sure your fingers are at a "normal" size when you measure them. Fingers shrink a bit in cold weather, and they swell after you've had alcohol, after you've exercised.
- If your knuckle is particularly big, you may want to choose a bigger ring size so that the ring can fit over the knuckle
- Size differences between your left and right hand often exist! Fingers are also fickle creatures that like to change sizes through the seasons (eg when you're in hot weather, they may swell a little) and during pregnancy.
- What's a good fit like? Your ring should slip on easily, but be snug and slightly difficult to remove.
Good luck and go forth!
