Free printable Ring Sizer

You can print out a paper sizer and sometimes they are in jewelry catalogs. Its works just like a measuring tape. Then you can see for yourself if its the proper size and if the band you have is the proper size too.

Default are fingers same size on each hand? ( rings)

Generally speaking, are your fingers the same size on each hand? for rings I mean.

I mean if I wear an 8.5 on one finger will the opposite finger also fit 8.5

all my jewelry is packed so I cant tell

If you are right-handed the fingers on that hand will usually be 1/2 to one size larger than the other hand.

I never knew this. I just tried it with my wedding band and it seems to fit pretty well on both hands (it's a size 4 3/4). When I get home, I'm totally testing it with all my rings.

As for the OP, your fingers may be around the same size or they may be slightly different. Best thing to do would be to check the size of your fingers before buying a ring - and trying the ring on first.

It depends. My right ring finger is smaller and narrower (mixture of loss of fat and bone being underdeveloped from wearing a ring on it since I was about 13 [24 now]), and rings are bigger on that finger than my left ring finger.

With that said, the thumb ring I wear on my left thumb is incredibly comfortable, perfect fit, but is rather snug (almost uncomfortably so, and barely slips over the joint) on my right thumb.

Sometimes even going in to have something sized, cant always stay accurate. In hot or cold weather, your fingers will change sized, too much salt, or if you become pregnant, ring size can change. When I was married and winter set in, my rings seemed to be looser and I always worried about losing them. In summer months, they were tighter.
