How To Find My Ring Size

The best, most accurate way to find out what your ring size is, is to go to a local jeweler. But if you can't do so right now then the second-best way is:

1. Cut out a thin strip of paper that's about the same width as the ring band of the ring you're looking to purchase. (Wider ring bands fit more snug than thinner ones, so you'll find you need to size up or down depending on the width.) 

Make it about 4-6 inches in length.

2. Wrap that piece of paper around the widest part of your finger, usually the knuckle. Have someone help you if needed. Don't wrap too tight, just snug.
