HOW TO MEASURE RING SIZE
Married couples had rings of braided reeds worn on the left-hand ring finger, as it was assumed that this finger had a vein that was connected to the heart. Thousands of years later, in the 1940s, an ad campaign with the tagline “A diamond is forever” was launched, and the diamond engagement ring became the ultimate symbol of undying love, romance, and commitment. Today, engagements are incomplete without a Diamond, Gemstone ring shining brightly on the bride-to-be’s hand.
Because of the high value placed on engagement rings, finding the right engagement ring becomes a lot like an epic hero’s quest. And it all starts with finding the correct ring size. You’re wearing that ring for the rest of your life, so the ring should fit perfectly.
When it comes to how to measure ring size, the best way or the most accurate way to get a ring that fits properly is to visit a local jeweler’s shop. However, you can use a ring size chart, a plastic ring sizer, a printable ring guide, and other methods of measuring the ring size if you prefer to do the measuring at home.

Some Key Factors about Global Ring Sizing Systems
-In the United States, Canada, and Mexico, indicating the size of a ring uses a numerical measure, for whole and half rings sizes. An increase of a full ring size is an increase of 0.032 inches (0.8128 mm) in diameter or roughly 1/10 inch in inside circumference.
-In United Kingdom, Australia, New Zealand, South Africa, and Ireland, the ring sizes are specified using an alphabetical letter, for full and half ring sizes
-In Japan, India, South America, and China, ring sizes are specified using a numerical measure, that only has whole size rings, and does not have a direct correlation with diameter or circumference.
-In Italy, Spain, Netherlands, and Switzerland, ring sizes are specified as the circumference minus 40mm. A 50 ISO was a 10 in Switzerland.
-In France and Germany, the numbers of each size simply translate to the circumference of the inside of the ring in millimeters. So a size 40 would mean the inside circumference of a ring is also 40 mm.
