Are you tired of buying rings online that are too small or too big?
This illustration provides you three at-home methods to estimate your ring size. Of course, the most accurate method of measurement is using a jeweller's sizing tool. In the absence of one, our simple ring sizer can help you avoid surprises.
When you click on the image, you will be downloading a PDF file. Print this page on an A4 paper. Make sure that "FIT TO PAGE" is not checked and select "ACTUAL SIZE" or 100% to print with the correct scale. Upon printing the page, verify that the arrow on the page measures 5 centimeters between the tick marks. If not, check the scale with which you are printing the page.
Once you verify the scale, you can use one of the three alternative methods to estimate your ring size.
1) Floss/string method: Wrap a string or dental floss around the widest part of your finger, cut/mark it at the point of overlap, and measure (in milimeters) the length of the string/floss with a ruler. This measurement provides you an estimate of the circumference of your new ring. Ring sizes at aishas.com are provided in terms of circumference in milimeters for your convenience. You can also relate this measurement to standard sizes.
2) Paper sizer method: This is also a widely used measurement method. Cut the paper sizer from the print out, create a small openning to pass the pointed end through, wrap the paper sizer around the widest part of your finger, and read the US standard size. You can convert the US standard size to circumference in milimeters using the chart provided for floss'string method.
3) Current ring method: If available, place a ring that fits your finger on the print out and identify which circle fits right against the inside of your ring. The number inside is the US standard size.You can convert the US standard size to circumference in milimeters using the chart provided for floss'string method.
