Ring Size

How to choose a silicone wedding ring to fit properly..

We find it best to use both methods and pick the smallest size, or the size in between. Metal rings are normally a bit loose around the base of your finger, whereas a silicone ring needs to fit snugly.

Method 1: Measuring the Diameter (Inside)

  1. Measure a metal ring that you already own and fits properly on the exact same finger as the one for your silicone ring.
  2. Put this ring onto a ruler and measure the inside (diameter) reading in millimetres.
  3. Now find the size for your diameter measurement on the chart below
  4. If the number falls between two sizes, pick the smaller size.
  5. If you ordered the wrong size, a replacement fee will need to be charged. 
  • Remember: If you have large knuckles your metal wedding band will be sized to fit over that part and will most probably be a little loose around the base of your finger. A silicone ring is flexible and fits snugly around the base of your finger but will stretch to pass the knuckle.

Method 2: Measuring the circumference (outside)

  1. Cut a piece of string (preferably not stretchy) or a strip of paper (plus-minus 8mm wide x 120mm in length).
  2. Wrap the string/paper very tightaround the ring finger.
  3. Use pen/pencil to mark the string/paper where it completes the circle and the ends overlap.
  4. Lay the marked string/paper flat on a ruler and measure the length of the marked area in millimetres.
  5. Use the chart above to find your corresponding ring size in the circumference table.
  6. If the number falls between two sizes, pick the smaller size.
  7. If you ordered the wrong size, a replacement fee will need to be charged. 
  • Remember: If your knuckle is a lot larger than the base of your finger, you need to measure both the base of your finger and your knuckle, then select a size between the two.

Using both methods for example: if your diameter is 20mm = Size 10, and your circumference is 68mm = size 12, then you should take size 11.

TOP TIPS:

  • Decide on which finger you are going to wear the ring. The fingers on your dominant hand is normally larger than those of the other hand.
  • Cold weather tends to cause your fingers to shrink a bit.
  • High temperatures and other factors like water retention, injuries, etc. can cause swelling of the finger. Measure your finger in warm temperatures at the end of the day
  • If your knuckle is a lot larger than the base of your finger, you need to measure both the base of your finger and your knuckle, then select a size between the two.
  • Silicone rings are made from a much more flexible material than metal wedding rings, that’s why we do not keep half sizes.
  • Should a ring size chart indicate that your measurement falls between two numbers - we recommend that you order the smaller size.
  • Silicone rings relax after a few days of wear. If you order the bigger number, you may find that your ring is too loose after a couple of days.
  • The smaller ring may feel a little tight at the beginning but will soon relax to the perfect fit. As long as it is not uncomfortable.
