What is the most common finger size for women in the UK?
The most common engagement ring size for women in the UK is size L. This information is based on the accumulative research from orders over the last 5 years. The UK average finger size for engagement rings tends to be around M-N within the jewellery industry. But sales of rings measuring size L are far greater than any other finger size.

Best engagement ring styles for guessing her finger size
If you’re like many guys, uncertain of finger size, you should consider a style of engagement ring that can be sized. Choosing the most common engagement ring size might not necessarily be the perfect choice for you. Furthermore, you should choose a style of ring where the diamond can be re-secured. This style of ring is typically the claw set design with enough thickness in the band. This will future-proof the shank from becoming too thin after it is sized.
Is it better to guess for engagement ring size larger or smaller?
Many guys opt for a size that they know will be larger than her finger. The reasoning here is that she’ll be able to wear the ring. Going too small means she’ll be less likely to get it past her knuckle. The chances are, if you really have no idea, it will need re-sizing. We routinely do this at no further cost—we merely ask clients to cover the small return cost of the postage.
