Average Ring Size by Height and Weight
Can you tell the average ring size based on height and weight? This is a great question worth some more diving into so, here we go!
The short answer to this question is yes and no. Ambiguous much? 😉 I’ll explain more before you think I’m crazy! I'll start with how we can use this information to help guess your girlfriend’s ring size.
This is based on statistics of the average height and weight of women in most parts of the world. The average ring size of women is 5-7 (median of 6). We’ll relate this to your girlfriend’s ring size. This way, I can show you the dos and don’ts of using this as a measure of the average ring size. More specifically, your girlfriend’s ring size.
As a first step, you’ll want to take note of your girlfriend’s frame. Is she short and on the bigger side with her frame? Then you want to consider the 7-9 ring size range. Is she tall and slender? Then it’ll be more like 4 or 5. Once you figure this out, our other factors come knocking for consideration! 😉
1. Her Knuckles
Her frame will help determine whether her fingers are average, bigger or smaller. Aside from that, you need to observe her knuckles. Are they bigger than the rest of her finger? If so, then we’ll need to consider a bigger size so that the ring is able to slide past her knuckle when she puts it on.
2. Is She Right or Left-handed?
Fingers on the dominant hand tend to be slightly bigger. This is approximated as half a size bigger than the other hand. Armed with this new trick, we want to pay closer attention to her dominant hand! 😉
3. Her Fit Preference
Does she prefer a tighter fitting ring or one on the looser side? The rings in her jewelry box would be the best place to check!
4. Her Age, Race, Ethnicity, and Genetics
This goes to confirm that we can use the average height and weight of women to estimate the average ring size! That said, it should go hand in hand with a few more factors for improved accuracy.
PS: I must leave you with a disclaimer when it comes to the question of women’s weights. Whatever you do, don’t ask her how much she weighs! :D
