3. Tips for measuring your finger accurately
Accurately measuring your ring size might seem daunting, but it doesn't need to be. For the most accurate method, use a ring sizer tool. Typically made of plastic and metal, ring sizers can measure ring sizes on both men and women, once you know how to use them correctly. Before you measure, make sure your finger is at a normal temperature and not too hot or cold. Then fit the ring onto the ring sizing tool until the arrow matches up to a size on the ring itself – this is your ring size! It's as easy as that. With some knowledge, practice, and patience, anyone can learn how to use a ring sizer for accurate ring measurement.
1. Use the right finger on the right hand. The fingers on our dominant hand are often larger than on the weaker hand.
2. Put the end of the ring sizer through the “buckle”. Slowly pull it through until you have a large sized ring that you can easily put onto the finger.
3. Put the ring sizer over the chosen finger and gently pull it tighter until you have the correct size.
4. The measured ring size to use is the one on the inside of the buckle of the ring sizer .
5. The correct size should allow you to move over the knuckle without too much effort .
6 If you see a point between two sizes, use always use the larger one . It is better for a ring to be a fraction too big , than too small .
