The Ultimate Men’s Ring Size Guide

How-To Guide

Don’t let shopping for men’s rings intimidate you, especially if you’ve never worn a ring before. These fun men’s accessories are a perfect way to add style to your fingers. Ring size accuracy is essential when choosing the perfect ring for yourself or your loved ones. Wearing a dangling or loose bracelet on your wrist or long necklaces around your neck is a fashion statement. However, a ring will slide off easily (or get stuck) if not the right size. So it's best to be sure before ordering one!

If you’re wondering, “What ring size am I?” we are here to teach you how to use a ring sizer. No more guessing, here are some easy ways to figure out your average ring size with or without a ring sizer with our handy ring size guide.

How to Measure Ring Size

Men’s ring sizing can be a challenge, especially if you’ve never measured your fingers for the correct size! You might have come to this point because you want to try out a fashionable signet ring or you’ve come to the momentous occasion of looking for a wedding ring. Either way, we’ve got you covered. You can figure out your average ring size with a very easy-to-use ring sizer or with a piece of paper or string and a ruler. Another option is to measure an existing ring. 

Using a Piece of Paper or String

The best and the most accurate way to know your correct ring size is to measure the circumference of your finger. Here's how to do it at home:

  • Cut a strip of paper or a piece of non-stretchy string.

  • Wrap it around the base of your finger (not too tight, but comfortably fit).

  • Mark the point on it where it completes the circle.

  • Measure the length of the string or paper with a ruler.

  • Compare the measurement to our ring size conversion chart below.

Using a Ring Sizer

Ring sizers work like a belt. You simply need to push the end of the sizer through the buckle to make a ring shape. Once you slide the sizer over the desired finger, tighten the buckle and check the size! You don’t want the ring too tight, and you need to make sure it can fit back over your knuckle. When in doubt, size up. 

RinMeasure an Existing Ring

If you have a ring at home but don’t know the size, you can measure this as well. This is also a great way to figure out a friend or loved one’s correct ring size when purchasing a gift! Remember, men’s wedding bands or other types engravable rings are measured from the inside, so that’s where you need to start. Measure the circumference of the inside of the ring in millimeters (mm) and compare it to our ring sizing chart.

Tips and Tricks

Our finger size can differ from day to day, and different sized black rings or other colored tungsten rings will fit more snuggly than others. Follow these tips and tricks to make this process simple.

  • Measure your fingers at the end of the day when they’re at their largest. 

  • Cold fingers can be smaller, so warm up your hands!

  • Alcohol and salty foods can cause fingers to swell. Avoid those foods before measuring your intended finger. 

  • Thicker types of rings for men will not fit the same as thinner rings. Pay attention to the mm size and size up if necessary. 

A Ring for Every Finger

If You don’t get it right the first time, that’s ok. You can always try different promise rings for men, sizes, and designs to see what fits your style and comfort best. Some rings are better suited to certain fingers or for different occasions. Check out our article about ring styles to help you find what you’re looking for.
