Ring Sizing Guide

Chosen your perfect ring but unsure of your ring size? Facets comprehensive ring sizing guide will provide all the information you need to ensure a perfect fit.

Measuring Your Size Finger

Your ring should fit your finger comfortably. It should be fitted enough to ensure it doesn’t fall off, but loose enough to get over your knuckles. Finger size changes depending on the time of day and weather. For best results measure your finger at the end of the day when your hands are warm.

  1. Print off Facets Printable Ring Sizer. (Hyperlinked to landing page)
  2. Cut out the Ring Sizer. 
  3. Wrap the Ring Sizer around the base of the appropriate finger, ensuring the numbers are visible to you, and insert the pointed end through the slit in the Ring Sizer. 
  4. Note the number that lines up with the slit. This is your ring size.
  5. Repeat this step 3-4 times to avoid erroneous measurements

If you don’t have access to a printer you can use a piece of string or paper, no wider than 1.4cm, and repeat the steps above. Use a pen to mark the point on the string/paper where it overlaps, then measure the length from the end of the string/paper to the pen mark you’ve made.

    How To Find Your Partner's Ring Size

    Guess it

    Not as crazy as it sounds, fingers are proportionate to body type. So, if your partner is petite it is likely that their hands are small and slender. Start at a size H or I for women and an N for men. 

    For someone of average height, an average ring size for women is L1/2 and R for men. 

    If your partner is above average height or build, start around a ring size N for women and T for men. 


    Swear them to secrecy, then ask your partners close friends or family if they know their ring size. 


    Borrowing one of your partner's rings (preferably from the correct finger) is the most accurate way of getting their ring size correct, whilst maintaining the element of surprise. The borrowed ring can be taken to a jeweller to be sized. Rings with wider bands tend to fit a bit tighter, so if you plan to measure one of your partner’s rings, try to measure one with a similar width as the ring you want to purchase. 

    Likewise, the borrowed ring can be slid onto your own ring finger, and the place it fits snugly marked with a pen. Take your finger and the pen mark to a jeweller who can use it to find your loved one’s ring size.
