Are you looking to learn how to figure out her ring size without her knowing? Click here for a complete guide!
Congratulations! You’re about to get married!
Well, that is if she says yes. But, if you’re getting ready to pop the question, it’s assumed she’s amenable to the idea.
2.3 million Americans get married each year, and you’re about to join their ranks. Only there’s one little thing you need to move forward: her ring size. But if you want to keep your proposal a surprise, is there a way how to figure out her ring size without her knowing?
Yes and no, depending on a variety of factors. Read on for more information on secretly finding out your girlfriend’s ring size.
Use Jewelry She Already Has
Does your girlfriend have a ring she always wears on her right ring finger? Or, does she have jewelry she wears often but rotates through? If so, the latter is your best bet.
Take one of these rings to the jeweler when you’re discussing the ring itself. Have the jeweler trace this ring so that they’ll know the approximate size of the ring.
This way, you can get a very good guess.
Or, if you know your girlfriend will notice the ring going missing, try measuring it with a tape measure or a ring sizer from the jewelers while she’s away, in the shower or asleep.
How to Figure Out Her Ring Size: Her Mom!
If your future mother-in-law likes you, she’ll be honored to help sort through engagement rings for your future wife, and help you find the perfect one. She may even have some helpful hints of things your girlfriend might and talked about when telling her mom what she’d hope her wedding might look like.
Moms know almost everything about their kids, and your future mother-in-law might know what ring size your girlfriend is. If she doesn’t know for sure, it’s likely that she and your girlfriend have swapped family jewelry at some point. She may know if your girlfriend’s fingers are bigger or smaller than hers if she doesn’t know the exact size. This can help give you a bit of guidance and move from there.
Go for an Average Size
To be perfectly frank, most people won’t guess someone else’s ring size correctly unless the individual is with them. It can even be difficult to measure yourself for a ring, and often you’ll need to be professionally fitted by a jeweler.
As such, it may be a good idea to get your girlfriend an average size ring and then adjust as necessary. If you think her fingers are going to be too small for the ring, you can usually buy temporary fillers to hold the ring in place so she can wear it right away. But, you’ll want to ensure it’s resized so it fits her perfectly.
Determining Her Ring Size
So, now you know how to figure out her ring size, it’s time to start thinking about what style ring you want to propose with, in addition to whether or not you’ll want your wedding band to match.
