In the United Kingdom, ring sizes are determined using an alphabetic system, from letter A to Z. Other European countries use a number system like the United States, but they use millimeters from 38 to 70.

The ring size can change at any time due to weight loss or if you're still growing. Make sure to get a proper measurement before purchasing your ring.
