How To Measure Ring Size: A Guide To Make Ring Sizing Easy

Have a jewelry box full of ill-fitting rings? Or maybe you’re planning a surprise proposal and need to figure out the proper ring size. In either instance, it’s time to stop guessing and get to know the true ring size you need. 

Read on for everything you need to know about ring sizing.

Are Men’s & Women’s Ring Sizes The Same? Are Styles Unisex?

Yes—manufactured rings are cast to industry standard sizes. Sizes are unisex and number based, running in whole as well as half sizes. The "standard" size for women is size 7 and for men it’s size 10. Depending on the maker, REEDS is typically able to provide sizes 5 through size 9 for women and sizes 8 through 12 for men, including half sizes. All the sizes available for a specific ring are listed on the ring's product page.

How To Measure Your Ring Size At Home

Once you have your ring sizer tool, here’s what to do: Assemble it by simply pushing the end through the opposing slot so that the numbers are facing outwards. Slip the sizer onto your finger and slide it to tighten the loop. Adjust the sizer so the fit is comfortable but snug and it can still slide over your knuckle without clicking back open. When the sizer fits your finger comfortably, read what size the arrow is pointing to.

If you are unsure of the ring size needed, place a ring (preferably a band) flat on a circle and the black circle should fit inside the ring. The black circle that best fits inside the ring is the size needed and is indicated either above or below the circle. This is only an estimate, please visit a REEDS store for an exact measurement.

Ring Resizing

Resizing is only an option with specific rings. Some rings and bands cannot be resized due to their unique metal composition. Bands in very hard metals like titanium must be cast by the manufacturer and cannot be altered. Platinum bands are only sizeable to a few sizes above or below the original casting size. Certain types of ring designs such as eternity bands are generally manufactured only in the standard sizes in order to maintain the ring's strength and design integrity. Rings with gemstones along the shank or intricate carving cannot be resized without adversely affecting the inherent design.

If the ring you want is not available in the size you need, REEDS is happy to adjust the size when possible. The resizing process usually takes 3-5 business days*, unless otherwise stated in the drop down menu on the product page. The fee for this service** is $25.00, or $39.99 if the item is Platinum. If the desired size is not listed in the pull down menu, please contact us for size availability and pricing.

If a ring needs to be resized in the future, contact us or bring the ring to the nearest REEDS store location. If a Jewelry Service Plan (JSP) was purchased at the time of the original ring purchase, resizing may be free if the resizing occurs within the time constraints set out in the JSP. If a Jewelry Service Plan was not purchased or the time defined in the plan has expired, there may be an additional charge for resizing.

*Some special orders may require extra time for resizing. Custom casting of special size titanium bands, for example, can run up to 10 to 12 weeks. If a ring is needed by a certain date, it's a good idea to check with us prior to ordering. We'll confer with the manufacturer to obtain a better estimated delivery date.

**The prices listed are for services rendered at the time of the purchase of the ring. For services that are completed after the time of purchase or on items not purchased at REEDS, prices may vary.

Take a borrowed ring and slip it over a raw carrot and gently push the ring down as far as it will go. The carrot acts as a substitute for the wearer's finger. Don't force the ring down. Mark the spot on the carrot where the ring ends up, then, wrap the REEDS Ring Finger Measurer around the carrot above the marked spot to obtain an approximate ring size.</p> <p>**NOTE: To view REEDS Ring Measurer, Adobe Acrobat reader must be installed on your computer.
