Ring width is measured in millimeters, which can be hard to visualize for those of us accustomed to inches. Unsure of how wide of a ring to order? We can send you sizing rings
in different widths to try on.
If you don't have a metric ruler around, you can stack pennies and nickels together to approximate how narrow or wide you want your ring to be.
Note: According to the US Mint
, a penny is 1.52mm thick and a nickel is 1.95mm thick. Please keep in mind that this graphic is only a guide, and the total width of your stacked coins may vary upon the condition and age of the coins.
