Check Your Ring Size
True Perfect Fit
For the perfect fit, we usually suggest the ring to go on past the knuckle with ease and to come off past the knuckle with a bit of struggle.
When we say struggle, we mean that the only struggling part is to be right where the knuckle is (tightest); at the bottom finger, the ring should fit comfortably. When taking off the sizer, relax the finger and slowly wiggle the band in a up and down motion until the ring is removed.
To determine your true perfect fit ring size, avoid drinking alcohol the night before or eating foods that are high in sodium, or checking your ring size right after working out--all of which will cause your fingers to swell more than usual.
When the ring is past the knuckle and it doesn't glide to the bottom of your finger with ease, that could mean the ring size is too small.
Another clear indicator is if the ring makes your finger turn purple or red and you have a hard time closing your hand comfortably with the ring on.
Should the ring get stuck, avoid panicking or pulling hard. Instead, submerge your hand for 10 to 20 seconds in ice-cold water. Then remove your hand from the water and attempt to wiggle the ring in an up and down motion to get the ring off. You can also apply lotion around that area and do the same motion of wiggling up and down until you can pull the ring off.
An obvious way is to dangle your arms and hands with your fingers pointing toward the floor. If the ring slides right off, the ring is too big.
Another indicator is if you have the ring on and it swivels 360 degrees easily when you move your hand; this applies for those who don't have an overly large knuckle. Lastly, the ring size is likely too large if you can pull the ring on and off without any tension at all.
