So, you’re about to make one of the biggest purchases of your life. It’s not just financing a ring, it’s everything else that comes with it. No pressure! Joking aside, there’s one thing you may be wondering when you know you want to pop the question: how to get her ring size without her knowing?
The diamond experts at Dondero Jewelry have a few tricks up their sleeve for uncovering her ring size so she’s none the wiser.
Here are tips for how to get her ring size without her knowing.
#1: Borrow an existing ring.
Ding, ding, ding! This is the simplest solution. If the love of your life already has an existing ring in her jewelry box, you can swipe it (temporarily, of course) and take it to a jeweler to be sized. However, this plan isn’t always without a flaw. The more time it’s missing, the greater the chance she’ll notice it’s gone. Dondero Jewelry suggests borrowing the ring and immediately taking it to a jeweler for sizing. Then replace it before she has a chance to miss it.
#2: Enlist the help of her family.
If you’re planning to propose, you may have already asked her family for permission out of respect. If they’re in on the plan, they may have an idea about her current ring size. Maybe your mother-in-law to be (fingers crossed?) has discussed it with her daughter. Have a conversation about their knowledge of her size.
#3: Compare your ring size to hers.
Another fix for how to get her ring size without her knowing is to eyeball it. While this isn’t a sound solution and leaves room for error, it’s a low-risk way to go, says Dondero Jewelry. First, stop into a jewelry store to get your ring finger sized. Then, on more than one occasion, take a mental note. Hold her hand. Look at her ring finger. Compare the difference in size. This may give you a general idea—and if worse comes to worst, you can always get a ring resized.
