In reel life, we often see marriage proposals always go off with no hitch. The man bends down and slides the ring through his partner’s finger, and it fits perfectly.
They never go into size details, but somehow it works well. This isn’t true in the case of a real-life scenario.
Sometimes you don’t even know your ring size.
Shopping for rings can be difficult (especially online) and expensive as well as frustrating when you don’t know the size.
When it comes to ring size, everyone is different.
It is not easy to guess the size of the ring compared to the size of an individual’s clothes or anything in that case.
If you’re looking for a ring for a highly sentimental purpose that you will wear every day, getting the right size is important.
Because you don’t want to risk losing it.
If you’re flexible with the size of less expensive rings and happy to wear them, it is still important to have a good idea of the ring size.
WHEN TO MEASURE
Keep in mind that your ring size will change over a while and can be affected because of changes in weather, medication, or even hormones.
Mentioning this, you should keep measuring it at different times during the day and continue for a few days.
You should feel comfortable during the evening (as your fingers are slightly smaller early morning and in cold weather) when your fingers feel warm and are most likely to expand then.
HOW TO DETERMINE THE RING SIZE
- Take a string of paper or even a measuring tape and wrap it around the desired finger.
- Your dominant hand will always slightly be bigger than the other.
- Make a note of the mark at where the ends meet.
- Measure the string with the ruler in millimeters.
- Your ring should fit comfortably so that it doesn’t fall off, but is flexible enough to slide off your knuckle.
- In the end, find the closest size on the ring chart.
- And here, you get the desired ring size and ring.
Also, there are a few important pointers you should keep in mind while measuring your ring size:
CONSIDER YOUR KNUCKLE
If you know your knuckle is larger order or consider a slightly bigger size.
ENSURE WITH MULTIPLE TIMES
You should try it three or four times for it to get smaller according to the weather and more swollen if overheated.
FACT- Your shoe size, divided by 2 + 1.5, gives you your needed ring size.
