You Will Need

Wrap string around your finger
Wrap the string around the base of your ring finger. Pull the string so that it is snug, but not too tight. Keep the string loose enough to snugly slip over your knuckles.
Mark the point where the string overlaps
Use a pen to mark the point where the string overlaps to form a circle.
Measure length of string to the mark
Measure the length of the circle, from the end of the string to the pen mark. Use the side of your ruler that measures in millimeters.
Compare your measurement with a ring chart
Find a ring sizer chart online. Compare your measurement with the chart.
Choose the correct size
Choose the ring size that most closely matches the length of your string. Pick a larger size if your measurement falls between sizes. Now you can order rings knowing that you'll have the perfect size every time.
