How to measure your finger to determine your ring size.

1. Wrap a piece of string (that doesn't scratch) or paper strip around the base of your finger.

2. Mark the string or paper where it overlaps to form a complete circle.

3. Measure the length of the section of string or paper to the mark.

4. Compare your measurement with this chart to determine your ring size.
