We understand how important it is to find the perfect ring size for you. We are happy to provide all the help you need!
You can always get an accurate measurement of your ring size by visiting your nearest jeweller. Keep in mind that our rings have a narrow band, so trying on a much wider ring will give an inaccurate measurement.
Svanhilde ring sizes are measured by the inside diameter in millimetres, so if you are used to another measurement method, you can use the chart below to find the right measurements.
Ring Size Tips:
- Our dominant hands are generally slightly larger — make sure you measure the right finger on the correct hand!
- Rings with wider bands will fit a bit tighter. If you plan to measure one of your partner's rings, try to measure one with a similar width as the ring you want to purchase.
- When measuring your ring size, be aware of the temperature. When the weather is cold, your fingers will be slimmer. When the weather is hot, your fingers might be swollen slightly. We recommend that if your hands are warm, put them in cool water for a moment before checking the size to get a more accurate measurement.
- Your fingers tend to change size throughout the day — the best time to measure your finger is the end of the day.
- If your knuckle is bigger, take 2 measurements and choose a size in between — ring needs to fit over knuckle but not be too loose or it will shift around.
- When you don’t know your partner’s ring size, selecting one of the standard ring sizes is your best choice. The average ring size for women is 6 to 7, and the average ring size for men is 9 to 10.
If you are planning a surprise gift or a proposal:
The best thing would be to ask a close friend or family member, who might have some idea about the ring size of your partner.
You could also measure a ring that your partner already owns.
Make sure to use a ring that they usually wear on the correct finger, otherwise the measurement will be incorrect - especially for a wedding or engagement ring!
You can take your partners ring to your nearest jeweller to get an accurate measurement. If you are worried that your partner might notice a ring missing, you can use our printable ring size chart and compare the existing ring size to the ring sizes on the chart.
Keep in mind that these methods do not always guarantee a perfect fit.

If you accidentally chose the wrong ring size, that is absolutely okay! We offer one complimentary ring resizing, which you can read more about from our Ring Resizing Page.
1. Wrap a strip of paper or strong around your finger where you would like your ring to sit.
2. To find the best fit, make sure that the paper or string is fitted comfortably around your finer and take into account that the ting has to fit through your knuckle, it should not be too late or too loose.
3. Mark the spot where the two ends of the paper or string meet and measure the distance with a ruler in millimetres.
4. Use the chart to determine your size.
You can also find your ring size by using an existing ring:
1. Select a ring that fits your ring finger.
2. Measure the internal diameter of the ring in mm. Make sure to measure from the centre of the ring!
3. You can also use the printable document which has diagrams of different rings to compare the inner diameter of your existing ring.
