Don't worry! Not many people do know their ring size! But never fear, we're here to help. Keep reading for handy hints (sorry) to find out your digit's digits, and perhaps even more useful, sneaky ways to find out some else's ring size!
How do I know my Bonearrow ring size?
Unlike earrings, where generally one size fits all, rings come in lots different sizes to accommodate lots of different finger sizes. Here at Bonearrow, we have 6 different sizes of women's rings:
Midi - a UK size E. This size generally fits the over the top knuckle of a finger but won't go over the second (pictured right)
Pinky - between a UK H & I. This size will fit some people as a midi, some pinky fingers, and some ring fingers!
X-Small - between UK sizes J & K
Small - between UK sizes L & M
Medium - between UK sizes N & O
Large - between UK sizes P & Q
X-Large - US 9 / UK R/S
As our sizes are between UK sizes it generally means that our size small, for example, will fit both a UK L and an M.
What if I only know my size in Pandora?
It doesn't help that each country has their own system for sizing rings. The UK uses letters whereas the US uses numbers and of course, different jewellers use different metrics. Pandora, for example use French sizes. If you know your size in Pandora, you can convert it to the nearest size in Bonearrow using this chart. You're welcome!
But, what if I need to find out someone else's ring size, you know, on the sly?!
Don't worry, we gotcha! ;) Trust us, we've done this before. There's a few things you can do if you want to find out someone's ring size without them knowing... Here's our top sneaky sneaks:
1) Ask their friends or family - sounds obvious but someone might have already done the hard work here, so you don't have to!
2) Use one of their existing rings to find out - now we're not condoning theft here, just borrowing! The easiest way (apart from number 1) is to find a ring they already have that fits and get that sized. You can either take that ring to a jeweller, or, order one of our Ring Sizers (for only £1 including P&P!) and watch the video below on how to secretly find out their ring size...
3) Ask someone with similar sized fingers what their size is - This is tricky because it requires a very good judge of hand size. Fingers can be quite different and even a couple of millimetres can make a difference.
4) Buy one of our aforementioned Ring Sizers and covertly put it on their finger while they're sleeping. Hmm, on second thoughts, you're better off with any of the above.
5) Guess! We are happy to exchange any ring for a different size if it doesn't fit perfectly, so long as we have it in stock. Just email us at email@example.com if you want to exchange.
