Ring size systems / How to determine ring size
A ring is a metal object in the shape of a rim, a circle, with empty space inside the circle line. Put on the fingers as a decoration or symbol of marriage, which, as usual, is exchanged between the groom and the bride (engagement ring). The ring is smooth, with a printed pattern, with stones. Rings and signets are ring varieties.
Do you want to buy a ring but don’t know which size is right for you? Below are ways that will allow you to quickly and reliably find out the size of the ring that you need.
There are different ring size systems in the world:
- Viennese size (circumference in mm).
- French size (circumference minus 40 mm).
- Diameter, it is the Russian size (Vienna size / pi).
- English size (approximately: 2.5 * Diameter - 28.75, where 1 = A, 2 = B, 3 = C, ..., 26 = Z).
- US size (approximately: 1.23 * Diameter - 14.3).
- Japanese size (approximately: 3 * Diameter - 38).

How to determine the size of the ring
The ideal way to determine your ring size is to simply go to any nearby jewelry store and ask to measure your finger. And do it three times, since your ring size may vary depending on the time of day.
TIP: Never choose a ring size in the morning (the body still has water after last night, so the fingers are slightly swollen), after sports (swollen fingers) or in too hot or cold weather. The “final fitting" of the ring should be done when you are calm, and your body temperature is normal.
TIP: When measuring your ring size, most jewelers use 2 samplers. One is for wide rings, and the other is for narrow rings. The finger size measuring tool is made of fairly thin rings - its width is about 3 mm, this is the most common form for measuring the size of the finger. That is why when trying on a sample, you should say how wide you want to buy a ring, then jewelers can figure out the necessary margin in size to choose the best option for you. For a ring with a width of 8 mm and wider, it is better to indicate the size of the ring a little larger (maybe 1/4 or 1/2 of the size).
The second option , if you want to buy a gold ring in an online store, you need to learn one simple rule: the diameter of the finger (usually in the middle phalange of the finger) is the size of the ring!
For example, if the diameter of the ring is 1 cm. 8 mm. (1.8 cm.), Then the size of the ring will be 18. If the diameter of the ring is 1 cm. 9 mm. (1.9 cm.), Then the size of the ring will be - 19.
Therefore, women who want to buy a gold ring via the Internet, if they already have a ring, simply measure the diameter of the inner circle of a previously acquired one with a ruler. The same applies to men who want to keep a surprise surprise from their loved ones. It is enough to get a woman’s ring imperceptibly and measure the inner diameter of the ring with a ruler.
The third way. It is necessary to measure in mm the circumference of the finger (in its widest part) - wrap with thread, mark the coincidence points of the thread and attach to the ruler. Divide the obtained value by the number pi (3.14) - we get the diameter of the finger in millimeters. We round the result of the division upwards - this is the size of the ring.
Please note that this way you can determine the ring size only approximately - different models and products from different manufacturers may vary slightly.
