- Using a pen, mark the point on the string or paper where it overlaps, forming a complete circle.
- Compare the length of the string or paper to the lines on the paper below to determine your ring size.

Make sure your finger is at a normal body temperature -- fingers can shrink or expand when cold or hot.

You want a ring to fit over your knuckle, but not be too loose or it will shift around.
