Width is the measurement from edge to edge, from the edge near the hand across to the nail edge.
Some ring styles can be made to various widths, some are fixed width.
When there is a width range to choose from, the widths are in increments of 0.5 mm.
Rings are made to a specific finger size, the size range for each ring style is shown in the table from the smallest size to the largest size.
The size scale used is the Great Britain standard, also known as the wheat sheaf scale, it is an alfa numeric scale with half sizes. The scale starts at A going to Z with Z plus 1, 2, 3, 4, up to Z plus 5 as the largest sizes. Each half size increase is 0.2mm diameter increase.
If you do not know your finger size, a jeweller can measure it.

Tips to measuring your ring finger.
Measure your finger when it is warm. A cold finger is smaller than a warm finger. You don't want your ring too tight.
Don't measure your finger at the beginning of the day, your fingers are bigger after you have been upright with your hands down for a while. It is better to measure at the end of a day.
At a jewellery shop, they would have a ring sizing set with a ring made of metal for each ring size, by sliding each metal ring over, going up and down in size until the best fit is found.
Thickness of a ring.
Ring styles are made to a specific thickness measured in millimeters, from inside against the finger outward.
Some ring styles may have different widths to choose from, but the thickness does not change.
When a ring has variations in thickness across the ring the thickness given is an average.
What is stamped inside your ring.
There will be a stamp either 375 or 750 meaning the ring is either 9 carat gold for 375 or 18 carat gold for 750.
There will be a stamp that is the manufactures identification mark.
Manufacturing of our rings.
The rings are made in Australia and New Zealand, by the most up to date and sophisticated machinery. The machines use current technology diamond cutting methods, some man guided by operators with many years experience, others by high tech computers.
The factory produces many tens of thousands rings every year.
The designs created are innovative, and are destined to be copied (unfortunately) by others.
