DIY Determine Ring Sizes at Home

If you’re like me you absolutely adore accessorizing. One of my favorite items to accessorize with outfits is a ring. I sometimes wear several and sometimes I wear just one or two. If your like me you also know how difficult it can be to find the perfect size for rings as you shop. It’s even harder if you’re looking online instead of a brick and motor store. So here’s a quick tip I learned years ago. It was on a social media page but it always stuck with me simply because it was so simple.


Simple Things You'll Need:

- A Ruler (yes folks you will be measuring old school here!) 
- Thin strip of paper (cut a piece of loose-leaf or note paper 


  1. Cut a thin strip of paper. Not super thin try a pen width size strip. If it’s too thin it may break easier if you’re wrapping it around your finger to tight. 
  2. Wrap the paper around your finger. Please make certain that the paper is below the joint of whichever finger you’re measuring and keep it close to the knuckle. 
  3. Mark the spot where the paper meets  (Do it with a bright highlighter to see it better) then take your ruler and measure the distance. 
  4. Use the chart below for ring size.


Size 4: 1 13/16 inches
Size 5: 1 15/16 inches
Size 6: 2 1/16 inches
