1) For the purpose of this blog, we will be measuring in millimetres. Firstly, cut a thin strip of white paper, roughly 60mm long (you could also use a piece of string if this is what you prefer).
2) Curl the piece of paper or string around the finger you wish to measure.
3) Mark the point where the two ends of the strip meet and cut to size.
4) Measure the total length of the strip or string in millimetres.

5) Once you are sure of the measurement, you will be able to determine your ring size according to the conversion chart below. For the purpose of this blog we have only shown UK ring measurements.
Here are some tips to help ensure you get the most accurate ring size;
- Measure your ring size at the end of the day, when your fingers are the longest.
- Consider the width of the band, a thicker band may feel tighter on your finger than a thinner band would - so in some cases you may have to go up one ring size.
- Make sure that the ring fits snuggly - it should fit easily over your knuckles but should feel secure enough where you can be sure it will not fall off.
- Refrain from measuring your fingers when your hands are cold, as they may have shrunk, hence giving an inaccurate reading.
- If you have had a alcohol filled evening, you may want to hold off on measuring your ring size, as alcohol can make your hands swell.
If you already have an existing ring that fits perfectly then all you need to do is measure the inside circumference and diameter. Please do refer to this chart presented on the H.Samuel website to determine your ring size -
When it comes to our rings here at Nikita By Niki, we are proud to say the majority of the rings are adjustable, so they will fit everyone.
