Measuring Your Finger
To determine the circumference of your finger, simply wrap your finger with measuring tape and use our sizing guide to convert your measurements. If you don’t have measuring tape handy, don’t panic!

Measuring Your Knuckle
If your knuckles are wider than the base of your fingers, then chances are your ring won't slide past your knuckle if you size your ring based on just the base of your finger alone. On the other hand, if your knuckles are smaller than the base of your fingers, then your ring can fall off if not snug enough. This is why you’ll want to adjust your size to account for the size of your knuckles. To make this adjustment, measure the circumference of your knuckle using the same method you used to determine the circumference of your finger. Then take the average of the two measurements to determine the perfect fit.
If your knuckles are bigger than the base of your finger, your ring should be big enough to wiggle past your knuckle, but small enough to not slide off.
If your knuckles are smaller than the base of your fingers, your ring should fit tightly but not too tight that it creates a "muffin top" of skin around it. This will prevent it from slipping off while still providing a comfortable fit.
Consider Your Band’s Thickness
In finding the perfect size, you’ll also want to consider the thickness of your ring’s band. Thick bands cover more of your finger and thus create a tighter fit. This is why we recommend sizing up if the band thickness is greater than 3.5mm.
