While it is always best to have your finger measured by a jeweler, as they have the right tools to measure your finger and current size of your ring, we know that is not always feasible. As such, we have compiled a list of some other methods and even some online tools to help you along the way.
How to Measure Your Ring Size at Home
Option 1: Compare Your Ring To Another You Already Know the Size Of
Use the size of an existing ring in your jewelry collection that is a similar design and is a good fit on the finger you will be wearing your new ring. This is the easiest method, however it does require you or someone you know already having information on the ring being compared to.
Option 2: The Paper Method
Use the paper method of wrapping a strip of paper that is a similar width to your ring around your finger and mark the paper where it begins to overlap. Measure the length of the strip of paper that wrapped around your finger and convert it to your ring size using the chart we have provided for you.
Option 3: Buy Your Own Ring Sizing Tool
There are many available online, and come in two types: a keyring lined with ring sizes, or a thin measuring tape. While most our not too expensive, we do recommend getting one that adheres to the International Ring Sizing Chart.
How To Get The Perfect Fit
There are many questions to ask when determining the size needed in order to get the perfect fit for your new ring.
• It is important to know that our finger size can change throughout the day, usually our fingers are the smallest in the morning and become larger as we become active, especially if we workout, or perform strenuous activities.
• Temperature is also important to consider when you are having your finger measured for your new ring. If you have just been outdoors in the extreme cold, your fingers will be smaller, and if you have been in the extreme heat, your fingers will be larger.
• Another consideration is which finger will you wear your new ring on? Our dominant hand usually tends to be larger since we use it more often. If you are right handed, your ring finger on your right hand will more than likely be larger than your ring finger on your left hand.
• And lastly, the design of the ring can also affect the fit. The wider the ring, the tighter the fit.
Do You Need To Change Your Ring’s Size?
What You Need To Know About Ring Resizing Ring Resizing is a practice many people need but one they are most often quite unsure of. In fact, it is the most requested ring repair process. However, even though it is a common practice, that does not mean there is a lack of variables.
Ring Resizing is achieved by either adding or removing metal to obtain the desired size, while avoiding metal contamination by matching the new metal. Some designs require removing and then resetting stones. After the metal is either added or removed, the circular shape is restored, then soldered together. It is then finished with a professional clean and polish of the ring.
It’s important to note that other variables like metal type, engravings, and other factors may prevent or complicate the process.

“Had a wonderful experience with MyJewelryRepair.com. You’d think it would be tricky sending your jewelry in to be repaired without being face-to-face. But everything went so smoothly that it was astounding! Their online ordering tool makes it easy to get started. You immediately get confirmation and tracking information. The staff is quick to respond to any questions you might have. And if they have any questions, you get a call for clarification. The staff I have spoken with were super-friendly and understanding (shout-out to Iris, who is especially darling!) Then, when your receive your jewelry back in the mail and it is exactly what you wanted–AND at a reasonable price? Wow! I had a pair of modest diamond stud earrings that I never wore because I feared losing them. For years, I had wanted to have them converted into lever-back earrings, but hadn’t found the right local jeweler to do the work. My “new” earrings came back and they were gorgeous–simple and elegant, comfortable and secure. I now can wear them all the time without any worries. What I did next was to scrounge around in my jewelry collection looking for more projects (doesn’t everyone have some?) to send to MyJewelryRepair.com—because trust is an important part of the process.”

I found this company online, and mailed my 1949 watch in for restoration. I thought the watch might be a total loss, with damage beyond repair. However, the end result was a stunning, amazing work of art, true to the original watch. It’s a sentimental piece, and I am so happy.

I do understand that this was harder project given that it’s a vintage Russian movement, but I can’t tell you enough how much it meant that you searched all over Russia/Ukraine for the parts needed to complete the work. The watch is running absolutely amazing and can’t believe how good it is running. It’s truly a centerpiece to my vintage watch collection and I absolutely love it. Thanks again for all the hard work and time you put into it and that’s what prompted this message. I do believe in acknowledging hard work and this is truly wonderful. Thank you again and keep up the good work.

“I sent in a ring to be resized–my estimate also suggested a stone resetting. I hadn’t planned on repairing the stone, and settled for just the resizing. After accepting the repair, I had issues with my credit card going through on the website…we went back and forth with them bank and customer service team (for days) but when I was starting to feel hopeless about getting it resolved (and playing phone tag) I was informed my ring had already been shipped out free of charge, resized, and with a stone reset!
The customer service team is amazing despite being a mostly online service center. if you ever need anything resolved, ask for Eboni. she works wonders. thank you thank you thank you!”
