Although jewelry and ornaments are usually associated with women, one must not forget that a ring is one such ornament that is frequently worn by the male counterparts as well. Men wear rings not just as a sign of commitment but also as a fashion statement. The rings for men are available in various shapes and sizes. It is important to determine the right size of the ring in order to prevent the loss of the ring and also for a snug and comfortable fit. So if you are planning to buy a ring for your man, you should not just know his fashion tastes and preferences but also his ring size. Let’s have a look at what is the most common ring size for men and how you can go about measuring the same.
Different countries have different charts that they refer to when it comes to sizing the ring. For example, countries like the United States and Canada follow a chart based on the internal diameter of the ring. Countries like France and Belgium use the ISO standard which based on the circumference of the ring. Still, other countries like Japan and India use a numerical scale that is not directly associated with the circumference or internal diameter. Although this difference in size measurements may seem confusing at first, one can easily determine the ring size by using conversion charts which most jewelry stores including Hatton Garden Jewellery will have. These conversion charts will help you to accurately find the perfect ring size regardless of the country in which you buy the ring.
Since men are more heavily built than women, the average ring size for men is more than the average ring size for a woman. Like in the United States of America, the average ring size for a woman is 6 which corresponds to a finger circumference of 16.5 mm while for a man it is 10 which corresponds to a finger circumference of 19.8 millimeters. Having said that the average ring size for men is not just one size but falls within a range of 9.5 to 11.5.
The easiest way to check the size of a man’s ring is to take him to a jeweller. Any jeweler specializing in rings like engagement rings, Hatton Garden Jewellers being one of them, will be well equipped with various gadgets to accurately determine the ring size. If you’re purchasing the ring online, then the online stores usually provide you with a printable measuring tape which you can wrap around the ring finger to determine the size. Another way to measure the ring size for your man is using another ring of his as a sizing guide. If you’re planning to surprise him with a ring then you can make an average guess while purchasing the ring but you should make sure that the store can resize the ring if needed. The ring size should be such that it passes gently over the knuckle and has a snug fit at the base of the finger and is not extremely loose. As long as you keep these few things in mind, buying a ring for your man will be a breeze.
