How to Determine the Right Ring Size for Cute Midi Rings

Midi rings are stylish accessories that everyone should have. Whether it’s your first time buying one or you want to add a new one to your collection, you need to be careful with the size. To avoid resizing, you have to know how to determine the right ring size for cute midi rings.

Getting the right size is especially important for midi rings. If you don’t pick the right size, the rings will likely fall off or be uncomfortable to wear.

Let’s find out the best ways to find your midi ring size.

General Rules for Midi Rings Sizing

Midi rings must be smaller than your normal rings because you will be wearing them on the middle of your finger.

Typically, you should opt for a midi ring size that’s three or four sizes smaller than your regular ring size.

For example, if you are looking for cute pinky rings and your pinky ring size is 6, you should get a size 3 midi ring. However, bear in mind that this is just a generalization. A snug fit is really important for midi rings.

There is no one-size-fits-all on how many sizes you should go down from your regular fit, considering the different finger shapes. You can find out how to determine the right ring size for cute midi rings below.

How to Determine the Right Ring Size for Cute Midi Rings

There are many ways to find out your midi ring size. Some include:

  • having ring sizer measurement tools
  • printable charts
  • having your finger measured by professionals

However, you are unlikely to have those lying around in your home. Or, you probably don’t have the time to go to the nearest jewelry shop.

That’s why I will teach you how to determine the right ring size for cute midi rings with everyday items you definitely own.

Ensure you measure the exact place on the finger you want to wear the midi ring on.

Measuring an existing midi ring

What you will need: 

  • A sample ring and a measuring tape.

The easiest way to determine your midi ring size is by measuring a ring you already own. Before you jump off to the measuring, ensure that the midi ring fits you.

Follow these simple steps, and you will have your midi ring size in no time.

  • Put your midi ring on a flat surface.
  • Take a measuring tape and measure the ring’s inside diameter. Measure the diameter that’s in the center of the ring.
  • Write the diameter of the ring in millimeters and compare the measurement to the sizing chart.

Measuring a midi ring size with paper

What you will need: 

  • A pen, a piece of paper, scissors, and a measuring tape or a ruler.

If you’re buying a midi ring for the first time, using a pen and paper is the most convenient way to get your sizing right at home. 

It is pretty simple, and all you need to do is:

  • Cut a strip of paper ½ or ¼ inches wide.
  • Wrap the paper tightly around your finger. Put it on the exact place you want to wear your midi ring. I recommend measuring your ring in the middle of your two top knuckles.
  • Take the pen and draw a straight line where the paper overlaps. Avoid measuring using the end of the paper strip.
  • Unwrap the paper strip and measure the distance between the two marked lines with a ruler or measuring tape.
  • Convert the circumference to the midi ring size by using the chart below.

Expert advice: Many recommend using a string to measure your finger. I advise you to avoid using this method. Strings can stretch, leading you to order the wrong size.

Tips for Measuring Your Midi Ring Size

Here are some quick tips you should follow no matter the method of measuring you use.

First of all, you should always measure the finger you intend to wear the ring on. If you use a sample ring, use one that fits the finger you will wear the midi ring on. 

Each of our fingers is different. Even the two middle fingers are different on both of our hands. 

Midi rings must be the perfect fit for you. Unlike regular rings where the knuckle prevents it from slipping off, the only thing that holds the midi ring on your finger is the tight fit.

It might happen that you are in between sizes. In this case, I recommend you go with the smaller size. Midi rings must be snug on your fingers, and chances are the size down will fit you perfectly.

Lastly, consider the environment around you when you are measuring your midi ring size. Measure your finger at room temperature. Low temperatures tend to shrink our fingers while the hot weather swells them.

As a general rule, you should measure your fingers in the middle of the day. Our fingers are typically swollen when we wake up.

Frequently Asked Questions

Are midi rings and knuckle rings the same?

Although some use both terms interchangeably, there is a slight difference between knuckle rings and midi rings. Typically, midi rings are the ones you wear in the middle of your top two knuckles. 

However, knuckle rings are designed to be worn close to your middle knuckle.

What finger do you wear a midi ring on?

You can wear a midi ring on each finger. Furthermore, midi rings are a stylish accessory for both hands. Try out different models of midi rings on each finger to find out where it looks best.

How do you measure for midi rings?

The best way to measure for midi rings is to find out the size of the one you already have. If you don’t own a midi ring, you can use a ½ or ¼ inch sheet of paper and a pen to measure your finger. 

Alternatively, you can go to a jewelry shop and get your fingers measured for free.

What is the average size for a midi ring?

The average midi ring size is 3.5 to 4. However, you should never rely on averages. Always measure your fingers before purchasing and order a ring according to your size.

Conclusion

Knowing how to determine the right ring size for cute midi rings is important. The technique you use to measure your finger can make your ordering experience much easier.

If you are unsure about your midi ring size, you can always use different methods of measuring to double-check. You can also visit a local jewelry shop and ask to have your finger sized.
