  1. Cut a length of string to measure your finger

    Using string, ribbon or thread, cut a length long enough to wrap all the way around the finger you want to measure.

  2. Make a string ring

    Wrap the string, ribbon or thread around your finger in a circle. Secure with tape or by tying. Make sure the secured string ring can slip over your knuckle without simply falling off.

  3. Compare the string ring to a chart

    Using a chart from a company, such as Jared or Zales, compare the ring you created out of string to the circles on the chart to determine ring size. The string ring should perfectly match the circle on the size chart for the best fit.

  • Q:

    How can you make a ring fit without getting it re-sized?

    A:

    A ring that does not fit comfortably can be worn with a ring guard to ensure a snug fit; those interested in homemade solutions can use duct tape or moleskin to make the ring fit tighter. Rings that are too small should not be forced onto the fingers using lotion or other lubricants, as they can become stuck.
