Measuring a ring size is very essential once you have selected your precious stone and the ring design you need to specify your ring size so that we make your ring to exacting standards and then consecrate and energize it in our temple before sending it to you. There are two methods to measure your ring size:
1) Getting your ring size measured by the local jeweler (Highly recommended)
Visit your local jewelry shop and request the jeweler to take measurement of the finger you want the ring for. This is a 5 minute procedure in which the jeweler will take your ring size using a standard steel ring size measure made of different loops. Given below is the table of ring sizes of each country. Please specify us the United States ring size.
2) Things to keep in mind while measuring a ring size
While measuring a ring size take measurement only with a steel ring measure. When you are measuring a ring size avoid measurement with copper or plastic ring measures as a degree of inaccuracy creeps in.
Avoid taking measurement just after a hot bath, exercise, or a very cold day as water levels in the body fluctuate during these occasions and a degree of inaccuracy might creep in.
We have statistically noted that the ring size taken by the paper strip method is often incorrect. We strongly discourage you to perform this exercise. Note For USA Patrons: Accurate Ring sizes can be taken at any of the Jewelry counters in Macy's or Walmart . Generally they will do this for you complimentary/ free. You can offer to pay a small tip if you want. Please visit the local jeweler and get the accurate ring size from a Steel Measure.
3) Taking your ring size yourself (This is definitely not recommended as your ring is for planetary benefits and the Gem should be touching your skin. For this it is vital that you get an accurate ring size measured by a professional as recommended above.)
Wrap a piece of string or strip of paper around your finger. Mark with a pen where the string or paper meets around your finger.
Use a ruler to measure the length of the string or paper up to the marked point. Make sure that you measure from the start of the string or paper to the point rather than from the end by mistake. This will give the circumference of your finger.
Divide the circumference (C) by 3.14 (p) to get the diameter (D) of your finger. The diameter refers to the distance across your finger in a straight line, or the width of your finger.
Check the resulting number against the table above to get your ring size.
