How Do I Measure Men’s Ring Size?
The average men’s wedding band size is 9. While most VRAI wedding bands are available in sizes 3 through 14, many men order rings within the 8-12 range. To know your ring size, however, you must measure your finger.
VRAI’s complimentary ring sizers can be ordered and shipped to your home. Simply follow the link, click “Add to bag,” and the sizer will be shipped anywhere in the US or Canada free of charge. Once you receive the ring sizer, secure the end of the sizer through the buckle to form a ring shape. Slip your desired finger through the loop, then pull the end through until the sizer fits snug but is not overly tight. When it fits correctly, look at the little black arrow and note your ring size.
If you are wanting to surprise your significant other with a ring, consider asking family or friends for his size or measuring other rings he might currently wear.
