Size Matters: How To Find Her Ring Size & Keep The Surprise

How can you find her ring size without ruining the element of surprise? The following tips will help ensure that your engagement ring slips onto her finger effortlessly (and stays there).

Enlist Her Inner Circle
Family and friends of your bride-to-be are great resources ~ ask her mother, sister, or BFFs (whomever you feel is trustworthy & unlikely to spill the beans) to help with your investigation.

Plan A Jewelry Heist
Take a ring that she wears on her ring finger to a jewelry store in your area ~ they will have tools on hand to measure her size.

Make An Impression
If you're unable to borrow a ring without her knowing, try one on yourself (any finger except the thumb). Push the ring down, to a point where it's snug but not too tight, and mark the spot. Your local jeweler will be able to use this line as a reference point in determining her ring size.

Size Her Up
We offer a ring sizer & chart on our website to assist you with your detective work. You may view & print the PDF for your convenience here.

When in doubt, keep in mind that it’s better to have a ring that's a bit too large on her finger than too small.  You don't want the proposal to feel forced, and most rings can be easily sized resized.
