Finding the correct ring size can be a difficult task. Below we have outlined how you can (more or less) establish your ring size at home. We do, however, recommend going to see a local jeweller and getting your finger sized in person to be sure.

  • Find a piece of sturdy cardboard, plastic or thick wire and wrap it around the desired finger
  • Take a pen and mark the spot where the ends touch
  • Measure the length marked using a ruler
  • Use the chart below as a guideline to find your correct ring size

Please see a general guideline for ring sizing below. South Africa follows the UK size model as per the ring chart

  • X-Small - G, G½,H, H½,I, I½
  • Small - J, J½, K, K½, L, L½
  • Medium - M, M½, N, N½, O, O½
  • Large - P, P½, Q, Q½
  • X-Large - R, R½, S, S½, T


  • You finger size can change depending on the temperature. Do not take a measurement when your body temperature is either too hot (as your finger size will expand) or too cold (as your fingers tend to shrink).
  • Please don’t use a string to gauge your finger size. They can stretch resulting in an inaccurate reading.
  • If your knuckle is bigger than the base of your finger, we recommend going up half or even a full size.
  • Is it best to rather have the correct ring size when ordering in gold or pieces with stones as we cannot be held responsible for incorrect sizing in this case.
  • Should you need to resize your ring after receiving it, we are happy to help. Please note that there will be a small fee incurred for courier, resizing as well as re-plating if need be. All Sterling Silver as well as plated rings will be charged at an R200 resizing fee and all 9ct Gold rings at a fee of R450.
