How to measure ring diameter:

1. Wrap the rope or paper around the base of the finger.

2. Mark the intersection with a pen.

3. Measure the strip of paper with a ruler (mm) and divide by 3.14 (or pi) to get the ring diameter.

4. Select the closest ring size from the ring size chart.


1. Use a vernier caliper to measure the length of the inner ring of other rings.

2. The ring should fit snugly around the finger and be loose enough so that it slides over the knuckle with relative ease.

3. If the knuckle is thicker than the base of the finger, measure both places and choose a size in between.

4. Please measure in the evening when your fingers are relatively warm. Avoid finger measurements in the morning and when the weather is colder because the finger size will become smaller during these periods.

5. Measure 3 to 4 times, take the measurement data’s average value, and strive to improve the accuracy.
