Determine the ring size yourself - use appropriate tools

You don't need a professional ring sizer, you can measure the ring size yourself with the right tools. This is particularly easy with a so-called multisizer ring, also known as a ring sizer . This construction is basically a tape measure. To measure the ring size, carefully place the tape measure around your finger so that it sits loosely. The finger circumference measured in this way corresponds to the size you need to buy a gold or silver ring. The ring size is usually read from the number that is displayed in the middle of the magnifying glass/loupe on the tape measure. We offer you a practical ring measurer directly in our shop.

Further options for determining the ring size

Whether it's a signet ring for men or an elegant, classic men's ring, you don't have to use a tape measure to determine the right size. You can also find out the size using a conventional ruler. It's best to use this together with an existing ring, which can serve as a guide. This tool is particularly suitable for a planned gift from the women's or men's jewelry category, as your finger is not needed. You place the ring on the template or ruler and determine the right value (inside diameter), which can then be used as the EU ring size when shopping. The best way to read the size using the measured units is to use the size chart with the internationally standard ring sizes. You can find the chart in the next section!
