Regardless of whether it's a leisurely stroll through the city or a shopping trip with your best friend: when shopping for jewelry offline, measuring the ring size is usually not absolutely necessary thanks to the fitting. And if nothing fits, a jeweler can easily determine your ring size when you visit their branch.
However, when buying hand jewelry online, you are on your own. To ensure that your favorite ring fits in the end, it is important that you know your ring size. We offer our ring models in our standard sizes S, M and L. Selected designs are also available in other sizes. You can find the corresponding size guides directly in the product descriptions of our rings in the fejn online shop.
Who would have thought: In fact, only very few people know what ring size they actually need. We at fejn want to change that! With our tips for determining ring size, you'll find out in no time which size is right for you.
How to measure your ring size?
We have good news for everyone who is now wondering how to measure their ring diameter: Determining the appropriate ring circumference is actually quite simple. There are various methods available to all jewelry fans to determine the correct ring size. We reveal what needs to be taken into account.
Method 1: Use a ring measuring tape to determine size
Ring measuring tapes are available online and in jewelry stores and work according to the belt principle: The plastic ring with size units is first placed on the finger on which you want to measure the ring size. Now adjust the size of the adjustable plastic ring until it sits comfortably on your finger. The ring size can then easily be read off the measuring tape.
Method 2: Measure the ring size using a ring template
We have made our ring size chart available for download to help you determine the correct ring size . Different ring sizes are shown on the template, which serves as a mask for measuring the ring size. In addition to the template, you also need a well-fitting ring. This method only works if you already have a suitable ring at home.
The piece of jewelry is then simply placed on the template and compared with the information shown there. Does your ring match one of the details? Great, you've already determined your ring size.
Method 3: Determine ring size based on diameter
The correct ring size can also be determined based on the ring diameter. How it works? Simply grab a well-fitting ring or hand jewelry from someone you would like to give as a gift and do the following:
Place the ring on a ruler or ruler and measure its diameter.
This value must be multiplied by 3.14. For example, if the measurement was 17 mm and you multiply this value by 3.14, the result is ring size 53.
The 3 W's of ring size measurement: When, where and how?
But it's not just the method that plays a role when measuring the ring size: there are also other circumstances that you should consider when determining. What matters is when, where and how you measure your ring size. Because your fingers are not always the same thickness!
As the day progresses or the weather changes, the circumference of your fingers also changes. Fingers are usually thinner in the morning than in the evening. If it's cold outside, the circumference of your fingers also shrinks slightly. Other factors can also affect finger circumference: During pregnancy, for example, fingers tend to swell. The measurement should therefore be taken at different times of the day and shortly before ordering your favorite ring.
Also important: not all hands are the same! The ring sizes on the right and left hand may vary. Before ordering the ring, it is best to decide which hand and finger you want to wear it on. Then focus the measurement on the corresponding finger.
The “how” behind measuring the ring size also plays an essential role: If you want to measure your ring size yourself and have taken your finger measurements repeatedly throughout the day, first add up all the measurement results. The resulting value is then divided by the number of measurements. Example:
52 + 52.3 + 53 + 52.3 + 53.2
= 262.8 ÷ 5 measurements
Rounded, the result corresponds to ring size 53. The resulting averaged measurement ensures that your new piece of jewelry sits well on your finger at any time of day.
