It's not as easy as figuring out your size in Nikes or Levis, yet it's the #1 most popular question we get asked on a daily basis here at Marke. So, without further adieu, here are the best ways to figure out your finger size: #1 The Marke Home Try-On Kit (highly recommended): If we don't say so ourselves, the Marke Home Try-On Kit is the best in the business when it comes to finger sizing. Why? Each ring sample in the Kit is engraved with it's finger size. There's nothing like slipping on an actual wedding band in order...
Wedding checklists can get overwhelming, confusing, and fluffy. Our Marke Groom's Wedding Checklist is created specifically for grooms-to-be who want to know what to do before the big day, without the extra noise.
Don't know your finger size? Not a problem. We've put together some at-home solutions for you :)
Using the finger sizer (highly recommended)
Our Finger-sizer (included in our Home Try On kit) works just like a belt. Just wrap it around your ring finger and slide the end through the buckle to form a ring shape. Adjust so that it’s slightly snug on your finger, but can still slide over your knuckle with a tiny bit of effort. When you’ve found a good fit, read off the size next to the arrow.
A few quick tips:
1. If you're in between on sizes, size up. You're always better off slightly big than too small when it comes to wedding bands.
2. Measure your fingers at the end of the day, when they're at their largest.
3. Cold weather can shrink your fingers up to 1/2 size, so make sure they're warm and fuzzy.
4. Alcohol and salt can make your fingers swell, so refrain from measuring them after cocktails and appetizers.
Using a tape measure (slightly recommended)
Start 1 inch into the tape measure for a clear line. Then wrap the measure around your ring finger so that it’s comfortably snug on your finger, but can still slide over your knuckle with a bit of effort. You’re looking for MM, not inches.
Using a string (kinda recommended)
Draw a line on a string and wrap it around your ring finger, marking the point at which the string overlaps the line. Fit the string so that it’s comfortably snug on your finger, but can still slide over your knuckle with a bit of effort. Take the string off and measure the distance between the two lines in MM.
