How To Measure Your Ring Sizes?

What is the best method to measure your ring sizes? There are several ways that you can do this. The easiest way would be using a ruler.
To measure your ring size, first, find a soft ruler, circle around the thickest position of your finger, make a mark at the overlap of the scales, then take down the soft ruler and unfold it, check the length between the two scales, that is, the circumference of the ring, and then check your suitable ring number by comparing with the following ring number table.
