Determining your darling's ring size without dropping clues is possible. Read on for our stealth tips.
Whether you’re planning a surprise proposal or simply looking to gift your beloved with a gorgeous ring—without dropping any hints—here are a few pointers to help you select the right ring size.
Before we dive in, please keep in mind:
How to Determine Ring Size:
1. Enlist the help of her friend or mother. Whether it’s from swapping clothes and jewelry, gifting each other, or shopping together, there’s a chance that her mother or her best friend already knows her ring size. Make sure this person vows to keep your mission a secret!
2. Do a little jewelry box detective work. If you’ve noticed your love wearing a ring before, you’re in luck. Using a inexpensive ring sizer, you can get a fairly accurate ring size measurement. Here’s how: place the ring on one of your fingers and use a pen to mark on your skin where it sits. After returning the ring to it’s home in the jewelry box, place the ring sizer where the ring sat on your finger to determine the ring’s size.
A ring sizer is a helpful tool that gives you a close approximation of ring size.
3. This method also requires you to sneakily and briefly borrow one of her rings. trace the inside circumference of the ring on a piece of paper. Align the ring sizer over the circle and tighten until it perfectly matches what’d drawn on the paper.
4. Just ask—but subtly. Explain that you’re planning to buy a ring for your mother, sister, cousin, etc. (anyone with similar sized hands). Casually ask her ring size—you know, for reference!
