How to find out her ring size (without her knowing)

images

There are many techniques to find out your love’s ring size without her knowing. Of course, that’s if you’re planning on a surprise engagement. Many couples are embracing the practicality of making engagement decisions together, including choosing the ring.

But let us not rain on the parade of a surprise engagement! Our friends at Brilliant Earth have several tried and true methods that don’t let the cat out of the bag!

We especially like the following suggestions:

BORROW ONE OF HER RINGS

Another method is to snag one of her old rings for a day. You need to be careful with this method because it might backfire on you! Make sure that you grab a ring that she wears on a similarly sized finger, the ring finger of her right hand being the optimal choice (unless, of course, she wears a ring on her left ring finger, which is less likely). Even if you bring in a thumb ring we can usually come up with a close approximation of what size her ring finger will be. If you choose this option, make sure that you choose a ring that isn’t overly important to her and wouldn’t cause any emotional distress if she notices it missing!

ENLIST A FRIEND

If one of your partner’s friends is engaged, ask her friend to let your girlfriend try on the ring. This will put you in a ballpark size range to start out with. You can also use this as an opportunity to ask what she thought of her friend’s ring (in private) and try to do a little sleuthing as to what style of ring she would like for herself.

Whatever technique you employ, take some time to get it right. A well-fitted engagement ring says almost as much about your choice as the ring itself.
