I lost my nice wedding band a few months ago and finally decided that I need to get a cheap replacement online (avoiding Tungsten and Titanium in favor of Cobalt Chrome for the bright white color, if you're interested).

Not having a ring sizer handy, I found a chart on Blue Nile (at to help determine size (make sure you print with no page scaling). They want you to place a ring that fits your finger over their circles. In my case, with no ring, I grabbed for my Scotch tape and reversed a piece snug around my ring finger and tacked it to itself so the adhesive side faced out. After sliding the tape off, it pretty much held its circular shape if I just manipulated it in one point using the tacky side. I could then follow the directions as printed on the ring size chart.

If you have knobbier knuckles, you could tape your knuckle skin down flat before doing the reversed tape.

Another suggestion: Go to walmart, kmart, or other big-box store with a jewelry section with employees who don't give a damn and get sized there. That's what i did after buying a ring on amazon and needing to send it back for a smaller size. I used the strip-of-paper method which sucked.
and leave my house? That's crazy talk.
