A ring is the one fine jewelry piece that you must measure for each and every time. While most necklaces, bracelets, and earrings are one-size-fits-all (with the occasional exception), ring size is as unique to each individual as dress or shoe size. Whether you’re buying a ring for yourself or an engagement ring for someone else, finding the perfect size is essential — especially for styles that cannot be resized.
Using a ring size chart is one of the easiest ways to to get your size right the first time. Ready to find the ring featuring VRAI created diamonds in your perfect size? Read on to learn more about ring size charts and how to use them for the perfect fit.
What Is A Ring Size Chart?
A ring size chart is used as a measurement tool with a range of ring sizes. Your ring size is a number (as opposed to small, medium, or large) that corresponds to the diameter or circumference of your finger in millimeters. While ring size charts may vary, most measure from size 3 to size 14, including half sizes. Unlike a ring sizer, which resembles a small belt you can wrap around your finger, a ring size chart is usually printable for easy at-home use.
Ring Size Charts In Centimeters
Most ring size charts measure in millimeters. If you would like to convert to centimeters, however, it’s easy! There are 10 millimeters to a centimeter. Measure for your ring size and divide the number of millimeters by ten.
A size 10 ring is 61.9 millimeters, so 6.19 centimeters, for example.
Ring Size Chart In Inches
Most ring size charts measure in millimeters, but you can convert your size to inches. There are 25.4 millimeters per inch. Measure your ring size, note the circumference in millimeters, and divide by 25.4. How big is a size 7 ring in inches, for example? A ring size 7 is 54 millimeters in circumferences, or 2 ⅛ inches.
How Do I Use A Ring Size Chart?
You may use an online ring size chart in two ways.
First, you can measure on your own and consult the ring size chart entirely online. To do this, use floss or a piece of string to wrap around the base of your finger. Mark where the string overlaps with a pen. Then lay the string down on a ruler and take down the length in millimeters. Look at the ring size chart to see which size corresponds to your measurement
Secondly, you may print your ring size chart (VRAI’s printable ring size chart can be found here). Take an existing ring that fits on the finger you are measuring for. Match the ring to its equivalent size on the ring size chart (the inside of the ring should match the circle on the chart). Note that this method is best if you are gifting a ring to someone as a surprise — especially a surprise proposal!
Are All Ring Size Charts The Same?
No, not all ring size charts are the same. VRAI ring sizes are US and Canada sizes. Europe, as well as the UK and Australia, have different sizes. A ring size conversion chart will help you find your appropriate size depending on your country.
How Can I Measure My Ring Size?
The most efficient way of finding your ring size is to have it professionally done by a diamond expert. They’ll provide you with personalized guidance and help you find the size that’s neither too snug nor too loose.
The best three ways to measure your ring size on your own, however, is to measure a current ring, use a ring size chart, or use a ring sizer.
Ring Size Charts for Men
Most ring size charts are unisex and based solely on size, not gender. Note, however, that the average men’s wedding ring size is 9. While VRAI wedding bands are available in sizes 3 through 14, most men order rings within the 8-12 range, size 9 being the most common size.
Ring Size Charts for Women
Most ring size charts are unisex and based solely on size, not gender. The average size for a woman’s wedding ring, however, is size 6. A petite woman with smaller hands or thinner fingers will likely wear a size 4 ring. The vast majority of women order rings sizes 5 through 7, but size 6 remains the most common ring size.
Can A Ring Size Chart Find Your Actual Size?
For most, the sizes in a ring size chart match their actual size. But because most ring size charts do not always measure quarter sizes, they do not necessarily work for all. While you can trust a ring size chart, the best way to find your ring size is to have it professionally measured by a diamond expert. The second best option is to use a ring sizer that you fit around your chosen finger comfortably.
How Else Can You Measure Ring Size?
For those who truly need to be discreet (especially while planning a surprise proposal!), there are a few other methods for finding their ring size. Observe the rings your partner currently wears. If they wear a ring on one of their ring fingers, find a time when they’ve removed it to measure it. If they only wear rings on other fingers, you can still measure it to get close to their true size. Just anticipate possibly resizing after you propose. If you’re unable to measure a ring, ask a close friend or family member who might know their size.
Are There Rings That Can’t Be Resized?
Yes, which is why it’s crucial to find your or their right ring size. Eternity Bands or other styles with a full-diamond band cannot be resized. Speak with a diamond expert for more personalized advice, but be sure to find your exact measurement for a ring with infinite VRAI created diamonds around the band!
