    Tips

    Measure the finger when the day’s about to end. That’s the time the finger is biggest. Fingers are small when they are cold.
     
    Finding out the correct engagement ring size is easy. Put a piece of string around the finger. Note the point where the ends join up. Set the string on a ruler. When you get the circumference, divide it by 3.14. Now you have your finger size.
