Print the chart from the link below.  Take the ring that best fits your ring finger and set it on the chart rings following the directions listed with the chart.  Voila.  You have a ring size!

No good jewelry store will mind getting you sized!  Just remember since it’s winter, you’ll want to wander around the mall for like 15-20 minutes and let your hands warm up.  Otherwise you’ll be sized as smaller than you really are.

Yup, no problem! You can even get a look at what they have to get an idea of what you like!

Stop in- takes just a minute. The thicker bands fit slightly tighter than the thinner ones imho…just something to keep in mind:)

Yes, I did this.  The store staff are usually very willing to help and will be nice about it.

You can also get a free plastic ring sizer from Blue Nile and have it sent to your home.  It doesn’t have quarter sizes on it though.

I’ve wanted to do it, but I’m nervous they’ll think something weird of it lol

They won’t think it’s weird.  They’ll probably even show you a couple styles to give you ideas.  Remember, they want your business!

I stopped by a few different shops in the mall to get sized, just to see if they ended up the same. I even got sized at Kohls on a different day to see if the temperature difference in my hands would change anything… I know, I wanted to be sure!!

I only had one place be really rude about it. They were basically telling me that it wasn’t worth it to get sized yet because when he buys the ring it would have to be resized anyway … and I was trying to explain to them that he was buying a ring online and needed my general size. I just walked out after they kept trying to argue with me. Turns out they were wrong and the size he got me was correct and won’t need resizing.

I’ve done it and my fiance has done it. It was no big deal and they were happy to do it!

When I was waiting, yes, I did. And I tried on some sparklies while I was at it. It helped for when I actually did go shopping with now-DH. Go for it!

I always thought I would look weird doing that and the jeweler I usually go to is good friends with my mom and I didn’t want her to know so one day I stopped in Macy’s to pay my bill and I made sure to go to the jewelry counter to pay it. I asked the old woman working if they had a ring sizer and she measured me and seemed even more excited than I was!

Yep – I went to multiple places to make sure they all gave me the same size (I wanted to make sure it was right).

They were all happy to help!

I did.  The store I went to had two ring sizers, one with thin bands and one thicker.  Typically you’ll be a little bigger with a thick band. 

One word of advice:  Try on a few different sizes until you see what feels right to you, not just the one they say is right.  The lady at my store, while very nice, was insisting that I was a smaller size than what I liked.  I wear right hand rings daily so I know how I prefer rings to feel.
