Ring Size Guide

HELPFUL HINTS FOR THE
PERFECT RING SIZE

 
  • When it comes to finding your ring size, timing is everything. Measure in the morning when your body is cool - that way swelling won't affect the measurement.
  • This might seem obvious, but make sure to measure the finger you plan to wear your ring on. Dominant-side fingers are usually a bit larger than fingers on your opposite hand.
  • A tip to remember: a wider band means a tighter fit. Consider a bit of wiggle room if you're going bold.
  • Large knuckles can make sizing tricky. Find a size that allows you to slip the ring over your knuckles but isn't loose enough to fall off.
  • Some rings can't be resized. Special metals like tungsten, titanium, cobalt, stainless steel and platinum fall into this category. This includes rings designed with gemstones all the way around like eternity bands.

USE ANOTHER RING

 

Your partner may not wear a ring on their left ring finger, but their right ring finger may be comparable in size. Use a ring they wear frequently for sizing at a KAY store or download our online ring size chart to compare at home.

JUST ASK

 

You want the proposal to be a surprise, but you've likely at least talked about your future together. So, just ask your partner’s ring size. The details of how you propose can still be a fun and secret surprise!

ENLIST A FRIEND

 

Friends and family can be your strongest allies. Collaborate with a friend to investigate ring sizing on a shopping trip. Or have a family member say they need the size for a gift idea.
