    Confused about what your ring size is? Use our easy guide below in order to find out your exact ring size.

     Method 1:

     You can easily determine your ring size by using an existing ring that fits you perfectly.

    1. 1. Place your ring on a scale or a measuring tape and measure the inner diameter of this (The diameter will be an imaginary line passing through the center of the circle that your ring makes.)
    2. 2. So make sure that you measure your ring at the center where it is the widest.
    3. 3. Once you know the diameter of your ring in inches or millimeters, you can use this information to gauge your exact ring size using the chart below:

    Method 2:

     Even if you do not own a ring that fits you perfectly, you can easily find out your exact ring size with the help of a thin ribbon, thread or tape measure.

    1. 1. Wrap a piece of thread, or even a soft tape measure or thin ribbon on your finger at the exact location where you would wear your ring.
    1. 2. Mark the thread or ribbon where it meets its other end in order to become a complete circle.
    1. 3. Now open up the ribbon or thread, and lay it flat on a tape measure or ruler in order to measure its exact length.
    1. 4. This length is equivalent to the circumference of your finger, and knowing this figure in inches or millimeters will help you gauge your exact ring size using the chart below:

    Lucky you, April-born! Diamond is your birthstone—perhaps the most coveted stone of all, and certainly our favorite around here.

    Diamonds first hit the historical record in 2500 B.C. when the Chinese discovered their effectiveness at sharpening weapons. By the fourth century B.C., they were traveling along Indian trade routes and by the first century A.D., they were highly prized as adornment by Greeks and Romans.

    Among its many unique attributes, diamond is the only gemstone comprised of one single mineral: carbon. They result from billions of years of subterranean pressure and heat that bonds those carbon molecules intensely, resulting in the stone’s unique crystalline structure.

    The first known engagement ring set with diamonds occurred in Austria in 1477, when an archduke gave one to his betrothed. But it wasn’t until the mid 20th century when industry heavyweight De Beers created history with their immensely effective ad slogan, “A diamond is forever®,” that diamonds and engagement rings became intrinsically joined as symbols of matrimony.
