How to find out your ring size, at home!

Probably one of my most asked questions from customers is "How do I know what my ring size is?". And quite rightly so. If you actually know your ring size, then kudos to you! How can we possibly be expected to remember information like that? 
The downside is of course, that it's really important that we know a ring size when buying a new ring for ourselves or a loved one....We want that new shiny ring to fit, right?
For those who don't know, here in the UK we use ring sizes determined by the letters of the Alphabet. The most common sizes are usually J-S. 
Obviously, the best thing you can do is go and visit a jeweller, and get them to accurately measure your ring size. But, there are definitely many instances where that's just not feasible....For example, when there's a global pandemic and there aren't any shops open (yeah...We never thought we would be here did we?).
So, here I am, to tell you that it's ok. You absolutely CAN find out your ring size at home, it just takes a little care and attention. 

Here's how:


If you do not have a ring which fits:

1. Cut a piece of paper in a strip no more than 1cm wide and wrap it around your finger where you would wear your ring (a piece of thread would also work)

2. When the paper fits well (not too loose) tape it in place, and then slide it off your finger

3.Use a ruler to measure the diameter of the paper.

4. Use the list below to match the diameter to the closest ring size possible.


G- 14.4mm 

H- 14.8mm 

I- 15.2mm 

J- 15.6mm 









S- 19.2mm 

T- 19.5mm 

U- 19.9mm 


W- 23.1mm 

X- 21.2mm 

Y- 21.5mm 

Z- 21.9mm 



Simple as that! I really hope that helps you navigate ring size confusion!
