5 WAYS TO GET HER RING SIZE.. WITHOUT HER FINDING OUT!
It perhaps goes without saying that making sure you know your partner’s ring size before ordering an engagement ring or wedding band is fairly important. Despite this, everybody loves that wonderful element of surprise that goes along with the most romantic wedding proposals… so how do you get those finger statistics, without giving the game away? Luckily for you, we’ve given plenty of thought to this very conundrum, and we’ve come up with plenty of different ways that you can try, in order to get her ring size sent to us so we can select or make that life-changing engagement ring for you!
We are, of course, happy to send you a plastic ring sizer free of charge, which you can surreptitiously use to measure her ring size and get the information you need to make that proposal happen.
METHOD 1: FIND OUT FROM HER FRIENDS AND FAMILY
You’d be amazed at how much her friends and family might know about your partner - and this often includes knowledge of her ring size! One technique one of our customers once suggested to us (and we thought was a stroke of genius) was getting one of your partner’s friends to take your partner jewelry window shopping, and getting her ring finger professionally measured… you know, just for a bit of fun...
METHOD 2: USE YOUR BRAIN, AND YOUR PENCIL
So, you need to find out your partner’s ring size - and it’s time to be a detective. Have a rummage through her jewelry box, and use your free ring measure to measure a ring which she regularly wears on her ring finger. Even if you can only find a ring which she wears on another finger, we should be able to come up with a fairly accurate estimation of what her ring finger size would be. If you don’t have a ring measuring device with you, never fear! You could always trace with a pencil the inside and outside edges of the ring, and send you drawing to us instead!
METHOD 3: BE SMOOTH
Sometimes, it’s best to talk. But if you don’t want to give the game away, you need to be subtle and smooth, and make sure she doesn’t twig what you’re up to. Some people pretend that they want to buy a new ring for a close family member (who, by some bizarre coincidence, has the same sized hands as your partner!) and you need to measure all of her fingers just to make sure you get the right one. You could also pretend that you have some other reason to take your partner’s finger measurements… perhaps you could say you’ve seen a personality test online based on the circumference of the fingers, and you’re keen to see how your partner measures up!
METHOD 4: MAKE A COMPARISON WITH YOUR OWN HANDS
If you’re really stuck, you could always make direct comparison with your own hands. Is your girlfriend’s ring finger about the same width as your little finger? If so, get measuring that pinkie, and let us know what size it is. It might not be perfect, but it’s better than nothing!
METHOD 5: ASK HER STRAIGHT!
Not everyone wants the full monty when it comes to surprises, and nowadays, it’s likely that if you’re thinking of popping the big question, you and your partner have already had some discussion regarding whether or not you’re ready for marriage. If this is the case, why not come straight out and ask for her finger measurements? This will relieve some of the pressure, and free you up to focus on planning your proposal… which can be as full of surprises and romance as you want!
SOMETHING TO BEAR IN MIND
It is worth remembering that the only really accurate way to get your partner’s ring size is to have her fingers professionally measured. All other methods are open to the reality that you might make a slight mistake, and the ring may be too small or too big once you receive it. While we are happy to re-size most engagement rings for you, we aren’t able to make alterations to custom-made rings. If you have opted for a customised ring, we would seriously urge our customers to pop into a local jeweler to get your partner’s finger measured, in order to avoid disappointment. Furthermore, if you are going to use one of our techniques, it’s best to go for a one size bigger rather than one size smaller - you want that ring to fit onto her finger when you’re down on one knee! Good luck...
