UK wedding ring sizes
With circle being a symbol of infinity and the empty space inside it standing for a gateway to the new life, wedding rings are a promise of undying love. Since ancient times rings sealed betrothals and marital unions. Wedding rings stood the test of time, still being a universal symbol of marriage in almost every culture in the modern world.
Before you say the vows, there will surely be a lot of preparations ahead of you. One of the most memorable moments is choosing your perfect wedding rings. Gold, silver, titanium or brass? Polished or matte? Plain or engraved? The choice is bound to make your head spin. Whichever style you and your soon-to-be spouse prefer, knowing your size is crucial.
Jewelers usually have a limited number of ring sizes in their showrooms but they will take your measurements and, if you wish, order a pair of bands in style and size of your choice.
If you prefer to order your wedding rings online, you will be often provided with a printable measuring tool so that you can determine your size yourself, from the comfort of your own home. Just remember to carefully follow the instructions provided.
It is a good idea to warm your hands before taking measurements as your fingers may shrink up to half a size when you are cold!
The most popular wedding ring sizes are J-P for women and P-V for men. If your fingers are smaller or bigger than these, you can have custom rings made just for you. Sometimes you can choose from half or even quarter sizes!
Below you will find a guide to UK ring sizes. Remember that the exact sizes may differ from one jewelry brand to another.
