Ring Size Systems / How to determine ring size
The ring is a metal object in the shape of a rim, a circle, with empty space inside the circle line. They are put on the fingers as a decoration or symbol of marriage, which, as is customary, the bridegroom and the bride (wedding ring) are exchanged. The ring can be smooth, with a printed pattern, with stones. Rings and seals are variations of the ring.
You want to buy a ring, but do not know what size will suit you? Below are ways that will allow you to quickly and reliably know 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).
- American 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 for your finger to measure. And do it three times, since your ring size may vary depending on the time of day.
TIP: Never choose the size of the ring in the morning (there is still water in the body after last night, so the fingers are slightly swollen), after playing sports (swollen fingers) or in too hot or cold weather. "Last fitting" rings should be carried out when you are calm, and your body temperature is normal.
TIP: When measuring your ring size, most jewelers use 2 sample gauges. One is for wide rings, and the other is for narrow rings. The finger size measurement tool is made of rather thin rings - its width is about 3 mm, this is the most common form for measuring finger size. That is why when you try on a sample, you should say how wide you want to buy a ring, then jewelers can estimate the necessary stock in size to choose the best option for you. For a ring 8 mm wide and wider, it is better to specify 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 the online store, you need to learn one simple rule: the diameter of the finger (usually in the middle phalanx of the finger) and 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.), The size of the ring will be - 19.
Therefore, for women who want to buy a gold ring via the Internet, if they already have a ring, it is sufficient to simply measure the diameter of the inner circle with the ruler already acquired. The same applies to men who want to keep a preparing surprise in secret from their loved ones. It is enough to get the 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) in mm - wrap with a thread, mark the point of coincidence of the thread and attach to the ruler. Divide the resulting value by pi (3.14) - we get the diameter of a finger in millimeters. The result of the division is rounded up - this is the size of the ring.
Please note that you can only determine the size of the ring approximately - different models and products from different manufacturers may differ slightly.
