How to Measure Your Silicone Ring Size
Imagine this for a moment: imagine you come home from work to find a package on your doorstep. You open it to find that it’s the silicone ring you’ve been waiting to receive. You’re thrilled to have finally received it – you can finally wear your wedding band without worrying that it will get lost! You pull it out of its packaging, and…
…discover it doesn’t fit.
You go through the invoice and check the size, and sure enough, the correct size was sent – but it doesn’t fit. In short, your ring size has changed since the last time you checked.
You’d probably like to avoid finding yourself in this sort of situation, right? Even if you already know your ring size, you’re going to want to double-check just to be sure. A few minutes now will save you time and money.
Here are a couple of ways available to you to check your ring size.
MEASURING FOR YOUR SILICONE RING: Getting a Ring Chart
No matter which way you choose to measure your ring, you’re going to need a ring chart. Luckily, there are hundreds (if not thousands) available for free on the Internet. Simply open up a search engine and search ‘ring chart’. Find one that will work and print it out. Easy!

MEASURING FOR YOUR SILICONE RING: The String Test
One way you can measure your ring size is to use a piece of string. First, cut a piece of string to .15 cm (6 inches). Wrap the string around the finger you want to wear your ring on. It’s important that you don’t wrap it too tightly because silicone rings are designed for a snug (but not too snug) fit. You want it to be comfortable. If possible, have someone help you measure your finger.
Mark the string where it overlaps and then compares it to the string chart above. Ideally, you’ll want to do this twice, just to make sure you’re 100% certain. Voila! You have your ring size!
MEASURING FOR YOUR SILICONE RING: The Ring Test
A lot of people use silicone rings as a stand-in for their wedding band. If you already have a wedding band, you can easily figure out your ring size right from your own home. Simply overlay the ring on the ring chart and see which one matches.

MEASURING FOR YOUR SILICONE RING: Use a Ring or Retail Store
If you don’t have the ability to print out the chart, you’re in luck. Oftentimes jewelry stores (or retails stores with jewelry departments in them) will have in-house ring sizes that you can use to figure out your size. Compared to the printing method, there are pros and cons.
The cons: unless you’re planning to make a trip to the store anyway, you’ll have to leave your house just to make a trip to the store. Printing out a sizing chart at home saves you the trip.
The pros: In-house ring sizers are actual rings, meaning you can put them on your finger to see how they’ll fit. This means you’ll be getting an extra level of accuracy that you might not be able to achieve with a print-out ring sizing chart.
Whatever method you choose, do make sure that you take care to measure your ring size before placing an order for your new silicone ring. Just a little bit of preparation goes a long way and before you know it, you’ll be wearing your new ring without having to worry about losing it, and you’ll be the most fashionable person in the neighborhood.
