The correct ring size is one of the most important aspects to be considered during the process of buying a ring. No matter how beautiful the ring is, buying a ring that does not fit you or the person you are buying the ring for will deem the ring useless and simply a waste of money. While resizing the ring to fit the desired finger may be possible with some rings, it is always important to consider the fact that resizing tends to leave a weak spot on the ring where the jeweler does the soldering; thus the ring’s sturdiness will be significantly compromised with resizing.
There are different ways to determine the ring size of a person – whether it is for yourself or for a loved one. One of the easiest ways to determine the ring size of a finger is to visit a local jeweler and ask them to use their ring sizing tool. There are different types of tools that can be used to determine the ring size of a particular finger. Some tools will contain multiple ring-like tools on a chain – these rings can then be fitted until a person finds one that best fits their finger. The ring will then contain a number, which represents the ring size.
It is also possible to measure the ring size of a finger without having to go to a jeweler or to buy a ring sizing tool yourself. This can usually be done with a piece of paper. The paper is cut into a strip and then fitted around the finger. A mark is placed where the piece of paper connects at a comfortable fit. The paper is then made straight and a rule is used to measure the piece of paper from the starting point toward the point where the mark was made.
A 7-centimeter ring size is quite common amongst men. This particular ring size corresponds to a number 9. Most men fall within this range, with slight variations below and above nine in most cases. Even though most popular amongst men, it should not be automatically considered the size of every man’s finger – instead, an accurate measurement should rather be taken.
