So, you’re ready to buy the engagement ring. You’ve been saving up, you’ve done your research and you know exactly what you want to present to her. There’s just one thing holding you back – you don’t know what her ring size is.
Here are a few tactics for getting her ring size to create the perfect proposal.
- Borrow one of her rings
This is probably the easiest way to find out her size without your beloved even knowing about it. Seek out one of her current rings and borrow it for a little while. If you would like the proposal to be a surprise, find out where she keeps her jewellery and try to pick a time when you’ll have enough to time get the ring without her seeing.
Make sure it’s a ring that would fit her ring finger, though. That’s because the dominant hand is often a little larger than the less dominant hand.
- Ask friends and family for help
Getting help can be an easy way to find out her ring size before shopping for engagement rings from UK jeweller Serendipity Diamonds. There’s every likelihood that your partner has discussed engagement rings and sizes with her friends or family. Maybe they’ve even tried rings on together, so her nearest and dearest may have a good idea of her ring size.
- Sneak the topic into a conversation
This is a tactic that requires a little skill. If you think you’ve got it in you to sneakily ask her about her ring size without giving your plans away, go for it!
You can really get creative with how you bring the topic up, too. For instance, ask her what her ring size is and tell her it’s because you want to buy a ring for your sister or mother.
- Compare hers and your finger sizes
Take a good look at the size of her fingers compared to your fingers. This is an easy one – when you’re holding hands or being affectionate, inspect her hand – she won’t think much of it. If you want to, you could even secretly try on her rings to see if they fit any of your fingers and then head to a jeweller to get your finger measured. There is room for mistakes with this one, so try to be as accurate as you can.
- Just ask her!
While the whole point of your mission may be to find her ring size in secret to create the perfect surprise proposal, sometimes, you may just to straight out ask her. Today, modern couples tend to be a lot less secretive about proposals. There are often plenty of conversations that happen leading up to the engagement. So, it might make sense to just ask her ring size the next time the topic comes up.
This doesn’t mean you can’t keep the proposal a secret. You could discuss the engagement, get on the same page about the ring and her finger size, and then keep the details of your proposal top-secret until it’s time to pop that special question.
