25 Mar How to Discover Her Ring Size?
There is little doubt that choosing an engagement ring is a very stressful time for any man, and aside from the obvious design aspects, it is vital that when you get down on one knee and pop that magical question, the ring actually fits. Of course, you want the proposal to be a complete surprise. If you do your homework and prepare for the occasion, it should be one memory that you both cherish for many years.
Here are a number of ways that you could find out your fiancée’s ring size:
- Enlist the Help of a Trusted Friend – This can only work if you know one of her friends who can keep a secret. Once you have the ring size confirmed, check out the stunning Ringleaders engagement rings Brisbane couples adore. Of course, you need to know the ring size of her third finger, and if the friend is reliable, leave it to them to decide how to go about getting the information without letting the cat out of the bag.
Borrow One of Her Rings – If she happens to wear a ring on one of her third fingers (left or right hand), then you can borrow the ring and take it to a jeweller, who can tell you her ring size. This might call for some clever action, and if you can get a few minutes alone with her jewellery box, you can spring into action – just make sure you ‘borrow’ the right ring.
- The String Method – Many guys have successfully found out their partner’s ring size using this method, which involves a very short piece of string. When she is asleep, very carefully wrap the piece of string around her wedding finger, making sure you accurately make a couple of marks on the string. This information is enough for a jeweller to find out her ring size, and she will be more than a little surprised when that diamond ring you slip on her finger is a perfect fit! If you decide to forget about a surprise and to let her into the secret, there is a guide on how to measure ring size, which will help her to accurately measure her third finger on the left hand.
- Invent a Story – This could be difficult to implement, and you will have to be creative enough so that she doesn’t suspect. Perhaps you could say that a work colleague is soon to be asking his girlfriend to marry and she’s about the same size as your partner, so encourage her to tell you her ring size and if she doesn’t know, drop into a local jeweller on the premise of knowing her ring size to assist your friend. There is a high chance that she will put two and two together, of course, but as a last resort, you could make up a story similar to the example we have given.
It is obviously essential that the ring is a perfect fit and the only way to be sure of that is to somehow find out her ring size. Some men actually prefer to lose the element of surprise and ask their partner to help choose the ring, which has two benefits; she definitely likes the ring and it will fit.
