1There are many ways to give a person a ring that fits perfectly.  You can learn their ring size without them ever knowing it, thus keeping your gift a complete surprise!  It will create a moment that will never be forgotten by either of you.

- Call us 24 hours a day if you have questions or need help.
- Measure warm hands at room temperature. Cold fingers are smaller.

4a>2This is the most accurate way to determine a ring size. It is also is the first step in many of the next methods, to determine a ring size without them knowing it!                                                                                                    

You will have a choice of the blue “Ring Set” or the “Multi-Sizer.”
The blue Ring Set (pictured on the left) has “1/2” and “Full” sizes marked on each plastic ring. Every ring easily pops out of the sheet for accurate feel and fit.
The Multi-Sizer works like a belt. It is marked with “1/2” and “Full” sizes marked across the length of the band and you have the ability to estimate “1/4” sizes as well. It is especially useful for people with knuckles which make it difficult to get an accurate ring size. Let us know if you would like both.

String or Ribbon Method (Can be used on a person taking a nap!)

  1. Take a ribbon or string or a strip of paper, about same width as the future ring, and wrap it around the finger where the ring will be worn.
  2. Tighten the ribbon so it is comfortable.
  3. Take a pen and draw a thin “line” where the string/ribbon/paper overlaps and makes a complete circle.
  4. When unwrapped, the single line will become two marks.
  5. Use the Millimeter scale (most accurate) or the Inch scale (second choice) on a ruler and measure the distance between the two marks.
  6. This measurement is the Circumference. Compare it to the Millimeter (MM) column on the chart below to determine the U.S. “Standard” Ring Size.

Trace Method
Carefully trace the inner diameter of the ring on a piece of paper. Then request a free Ring Sizing Set, click here. Place the different rings on the paper, until you find the one that has the same diameter of the circle you made. Read the size that is stamped on the side of the Ring Set.

Impression Method

Place the different rings from the Ring Set around the impression, until you find the one that has the same diameter of the circle you made.
