Ring size table - these sizes are available for finger jewellery
Put a ring on it! Choosing the right ring size can be of particular importance in some situations - for example, if you want to ask your loved one the question of all questions. Ring size tables serve as the basis for finding the right ring size. Regardless of whether rings are made of silver, rose gold or gold - in Germany ring sizes are determined based on the ring circumference. But on an international level things are different: letters, numbers, or decimals? We reveal how you use ring size tables to choose the right ring size, how the international ring size table differs from the one used in Germany and which ring sizes are most common.

Ring sizes in Germany and the EU
In Germany and most of the European Union, the ring circumference forms the basis for determining the right ring size. Ring size 52 corresponds to a finger circumference of 52 mm. In this country, women's rings are most often bought in size 54. Rings with sizes between 48 and 56 fit more than 80% of women's hands in Germany.
Ring sizes in the US
The situation is different in the USA: The ring sizes used there follow a scale of numbers and decimals, which typically range from ring size 3 to 13.5 (for adults). Women's rings are usually found between sizes 3 and 9, while men's rings are usually sizes 8 and 14.
Ring sizes in UK
When it comes to the ring size table , the British completely abandon the world of whole numbers: In England, the ring sizes are divided alphabetically – from A to Z. The letters stand for the ring diameter. For example, size N rings correspond to a ring diameter of 17.2 mm. Converted to the finger circumference - i.e. multiplied by the circle number Pi (3.14) - the British ring size N corresponds to the EU ring size 54 ½ .
Ring sizes in Japan
In case you fall in love with a ring from the land of the rising sun online one day but have no idea which size is right for you: We've got you covered! In Japan, ring sizes are defined by whole numbers, usually accompanied by one decimal place, for example 12.6. But anyone who now thinks that the Japanese use the diameter of the ring to determine the size will be severely disappointed when buying a ring. Because the number has nothing to do with the diameter of the piece of jewelry: the Japanese ring size 12.6 corresponds to the EU ring size 53.
