Ring Size Guide
Do you know the correct ring size for that beautiful little finger?

Don't leave the comfort of your home, but instead use our guide below to help you find the perfect size for the finger you want your new JGJ gem to sparkle on!
U.S. ring sizes follow a scale of numbers (and half numbers), typically from ring size 3 to 13.5 for adults. Women's rings are commonly between sizes 3 and 9, while men's rings are usually sized between 8 and 14. Those units match up to your finger's width in millimeters: A ring size 3 fits a ring finger (or any finger) that is 14 millimeters across, and the sizes climb from there. The average ring size for women is between 5 and 7, but it's always best to get an exact ring measurement before spending any kind of money.
Before you measure...
Before you sit down to measure your ring size, there are a few how-to pointers you should keep in mind:
Consider your knuckle.If you know your knuckle is on the larger side, you should order half a size bigger than what your finger alone indicates, otherwise you won't be able slide a ring into the right place.
Ensure accuracy with multiple tries. We recommend measuring your finger three to four different times because the size actually fluctuates depending on temperature: It can be smaller the colder you are and more swollen if you're overheated.
Grab a String!
Take a length of floss or string and wrap it around the base of your finger. Mark where the floss or string first overlaps with a pen. Stretch the length of string out along a ruler or measuring tape, and take down the length in millimeters.
Use the ring size chart below to compare your measurement to the standard ring sizes, which go up by 0.4 millimeters every half-size. The most common ring sizes for women are 6 (16.5 mm), 6.5 (16.9mm), and 7 (17.3 mm), while the most common men's sizes are 10 (19.8mm), 10.5 (20.2 mm), and 11 (20.6 mm).
