Fool Proof Tips on How To Find Your Ring Size

For some people, the idea of choosing the perfect ring is fraught with more risk than actually asking their beloved to marry them. It’s not just the design or colour to get right, you need that ring to slide on smoothly and fit snugly. With this guide on How To Find Your Ring Size you will avoid the awkwardness of a poorly fitted ring.

While most errors in sizing can be easily rectified, there are some rings that simply cannot be resized. Those with a specific arrangement of stones, an unusual shape or certain metals such as Tungsten, will have to be just the right fit. Luckily there are some tricks to getting the right size even if that ring finger can’t go to the shops with you.

The DIY version of ring sizing requires a piece of string, a pen and a ruler. Wrap the string around the base of the ring finger and mark the point where the string meets. Measure this against the ruler and choose the ring size with the corresponding measurement. Do this in the afternoon of a warm day. It’s when the fingers will be at their largest and will mean you choose a ring that can be worn through summer, while exercising and over the Christmas feasting without cutting off circulation. Factor in the size of the knuckle and, if larger than the base of the finger, choose a size between both measurements.

Surround yourself with the positive people

When selecting a wedding party and asking other friends to be involved in the wedding, select people who have positive attitudes and those who support you unconditionally.  The last thing you want is people criticising your decisions, or trying to impress their own opinions or desires on the outcome.

Make your ceremony mean something

The reception might be the party and be fun to organise, but your ceremony is your commitment to each other.  Is there a special song for you and your partner, perhaps the one that was playing the night you were engaged? Have you ever written a poem or love letter to your fiancé? Read it during the ceremony, or if nerves won’t allow you to read it yourself, have your celebrant read it for you. Choose readings that mean something to you.

Create a timeline for the wedding day

If you are not working with a wedding planner, it is your job to create a realistic timeline for everyone to follow.  Detail and document all key elements and activities that are to take place on the day. Include addresses of locations and who needs to be where and when. If you do not do this, you are trusting others to instinctively know your needs.

Ask for help when you need it

It is not uncommon to become overwhelmed with wedding planning. It takes a lot of time, dedication and work. Typically, there are many people knocking at your door anxious to help..  When asking for help from friends or family members, give them specific instructions and deadlines. Also, make sure they know you still have final say.

Another option is to select a ring that you already know fits that finger well. Place this ring over the above chart and match it to the right size. Just remember that each finger will be a slightly different shape and size so make sure the template ring you choose is one that fits the ring finger.

Although these tips should provide you with a fairly faithful result, think of this as just a guide for How To Find Your Ring Size. For the most accurate sizing, visit a jeweler. While resizing is generally possible, the wrong sized ring detracts from a beautiful moment. Much better to get it right the first time.
