How to accurately get your ring size

Ring sizing is an important aspect of getting a custom piece of jewellery made. While resizing is possible, it is always best to get the sizing correct the first time around. Here is the 411 when it comes to determining your ring size. 


Firstly, there are a few different size guides that jewellers use, depending on the country and the company. In South Africa, most jewellers use a chart based on the letters of the alphabet, ie A being the smallest going up to Z+++ etc.

Within that, there are also half sizes. So you could end up being a size M1/2 for example. 


So the best way to get your finger sized accurately? Go to a jeweller or jewellery store near you (or pop in at the C.Jade workshop) and get it done professionally. That is always the most accurate! I will always recommend this method over the next two. 


If that’s not possible, then here are a few other methods:

  1. There are apps you can download that will help size a ring you currently have. Here are the links to them: apple and android.
  2. You can use a pencil to draw the inner circle of your ring and measure that with a ruler. Keep in mind that a fraction of a millimetre can make a difference in your ring size, so if youre using this method, you need to be as accurate as possible. Here’s a link to a reel for more information


These are the three methods that are the most accurate. Using a piece of paper or string almost always results in an incorrect size.
