Ring Size Guide

At Calico Jewellers, we understand the importance of a comfortable and secure fit when it comes to engagement rings and wedding bands. Your ring should slide over your knuckle, but it should also fit snugly enough to stay in place on your finger and not slide back off the knuckle without a little bit of twisting.

To ensure that your ring fits just right, we recommend following our expert tips for measuring your finger size or visit a jeweller to get an accurate ring size. This will help you choose the perfect ring size, avoiding the frustration of a ring that is too loose or too tight.

*Some rings cannot be resized and will need to be remanufactured and if custom made will not fall within our resizing policy. There will be a fee for rings that need to be re-manufactured outside the 30-day return policy.

Tips for Finding Your Ring Size:
  • Measure your finger at the end of the day.
  • Be sure to measure the finger on the correct hand, as our dominant hands are generally slightly larger than our non-dominant hand.
  • Your finger size changes depending on the weather and time of day. For best results, measure your finger size at the end of the day when your fingers are warm. (Early in the morning, your fingers are cold and therefore smaller.)
  • Measure a few times to make sure your calculations are accurate.
  • The width of a ring is an important factor when determining ring size because it affects the fit of the ring on the finger. Wider rings require larger sizes than thinner rings.

Measuring your Ring Size from Home:

Getting the right ring size is essential for ensuring a comfortable fit and avoiding the hassle of returning or exchanging your ring. Here's how you can measure your ring size at home:
  • Measure your finger at the end of the day when your fingers are likely to be their largest.
  • Use a piece of string or a strip of paper, about ¼ inch wide.
  • Wrap the string or paper around the base of the finger you want to measure. Make sure it fits snugly but not too tight.
  • Mark the point where the string or paper overlaps to form a complete circle.
  • Measure the length of the string or paper from the starting point to the marked point in millimeters.
