Identify your Ring Size

How to Calculate Ring Size

Accurately measuring your finger for its ring size is very simple. There is a standard conversion scale, and the same scale is used for both men and women. Note that it's best to measure your finger later in the day; fingers do swell a bit and you might have trouble removing a ring if you don't take this into account when sizing

Things you will need

 
1. Ruler
2. Thin Strip of paper /string/thread
 
RING SIZING CHART FOR MEASURING YOUR FINGER SIZE APPROPRIATELY

This is a chart that will be extremely helpful for you to determine the ring size that you need. You can either make use of a tape or a small piece of string/paper/ thread to measure the area that will be occupied by the ring. When it becomes a complete circle, make a mark on such string/paper/ thread. This will be helpful for you to compare with the chart that is mentioned below. For extra width, you can add another size to accommodate.



Instructions

1. Cut a thin strip of paper/ thread.
2. Wrap the paper around your finger. Make sure the paper is below the joint of your finger and close to your knuckle.
3. Mark the spot where the paper/thread meets and measure the distance with your ruler.
4. Use the following chart to determine your ring size. Rings also come in half sizes, the measurements of which, of course, will fall somewhere in between the whole sizes

How to Calculate Bangle Size
 
Indian Bangles are sized by their diameter, which is a measure of the length of a straight line passing through the centre of the bangle, terminated at both ends on the circumference of the bangle. The unit of measurement is inches.
 
An inch is further divided into 16 sections. So, when we say the bangle size is 2-8, it means the diameter of the bangle is 2 full inches plus 8 sections of the total 16 sections of the inch. This effectively converts to 2 inches + 8/16 inches, which is 2 inches plus half an inch. I.e. 2.5"

The table below will help you know the right size for your Indian bangle
