    Ring size conversion fun, does anyone REALLY know?! 13th Oct 16 at 10:32 PM
    So I want to buy a ring from Russia and they make them in US sizes, BUT, there are differences in the conversions:

    International converter says;

    Y= US12 = 67.51mm cir = 21.49mm dia

    onlineconversion says;

    Y= US12 .....BUT = 66.6mm cir = 21.49mm dia (go figure)


    Wikipedia says;

    Y= US12.25 = 67.8mm cir = 21.39mm dia

    Its a nightmare, how does anyone buy anything!?

    Does anyone know which is correct? Even looking through the different sellers on the bay brings up even more inconsistency. The ring I want to buy is definitely NOT resizable due to the design. Why would the jewellers do this to themselves???

    Again another thread in the wrong forum.
    US sizes as you asked are smaller than British sizes. So order a size larger.

    The forum description says this is a general forum anyone can post in?

    all the converters are different and give different sizes in mm, so which is correct?

    Ok my friend. I have bought US size rings. I found them all to be half a size too small. So my advice would be to buy the next size up from the size chart.
    UK Size Approx US Size
    L 6 51 1/2
    So I would buy a US 7
    Was the ebay guide no help?

    A calculator can answer part of the question.

    21.49 x π = 67.51
