When you use paper or string for measuring finger, make sure that along with the base of your finger you slip it around your knuckles as well. Mark the area of the paper or string with a pen where the long ends meet each other. When this is done, place the marked area of the paper or string from the end of the length against a ruler and refer to the metric side for an accurate understanding. Next, compare the metric size with the printable free ring sizer and pick the larger fit if the measurement falls between two sizes.
If this appears to be uncomfortable, then there is another option as well. Download a circular ring-sizing chart from the Internet that contains varying sizes of circles. Take a ring and slip it on the intended finger and if it is a comfortable fit, place that on the circles shown in the paper. Finally, note down the number mentioned on that circle whose inside matches with the ring you had tried.
Few Points to Remember
- For taking accurate measurement, it is important that when you take the size of your finger, your body temperature is normal. The reason is cold fingers happen to shrink in size. To obtain best results, you can wait till the end of the day when fingers tend to be their normal size.
- Also as pointed out earlier, if you find two comfortable sizes, go with the larger one. A regular size ring might feel little uncomfortable later.
- After taking the measurement of the base of your finger and the knuckles, choose a size that falls between the two of them.
