Measure An Existing Ring

An easy way to determine your ring size is to measure an existing, well-fitting ring. By placing your ring on a ruler you can determine the exact inner size in millimeters. Measure the diameter of the inside of the ring (so do not include the edge). The number of millimeters is the ring size. You can convert this measurement to your EU ring size using our overview in the table in our Size Guide.
Tip: If you are in between sizes, please order the nearest smaller size.
Please keep in mind that you should measure the ring for the correct finger. If you don’t wear the existing ring on the same finger, or even on the same hand, the size will differ. In this case it is advised you use our ring sizer to measure the correct ring size.Ring sizer

Choosing The Perfect Ring Size

Some important points to keep in mind when measuring your ring size

✰ A wider ring feels tighter. We recommend that you measure an existing ring that corresponds to the ring width you want to order.
✰ When measuring your ring size, take temperature into account. In warm weather the fingers can swell a bit and in cold weather they contract. Your fingers are often slightly swollen in the evening. We recommend that you measure your ring size at several moments during the day to be sure of the correct size or when your hands are at a moderate temperature.
✰ A wider knuckle may require a tighter ring that is somewhat difficult to push over the knuckle but will fit comfortably on the base of your finger.
✰ A ring should fit comfortably so that, after initially putting it on, you no longer feel it. It should not be tight or restrictive, nor should it be too loose to risk it falling off.
