Careful planning long before popping ‘the question’ can help make the most romantic and unforgettable proposal. While not every proposal is the same and so does each couple’s way of getting engaged, some people want their engagement to be a surprise. This ‘surprise element’ definitely sounds romantic but at the same time makes picking an engagement ring difficult.
So often here at Rough Luxe, people ask us about how to find the ring size of their girlfriend or significant other without them knowing. Well, don’t worry; we have some great tips that can help you choose the perfect engagement ring size for your beloved!
If you are absolutely set to make a surprise proposal but still want to find out her ring size directly from her, act innocent in front of her. Pretend that you need to buy a ring for your relative and casually ask her ring size casually for reference that too in a very subtle manner. You may even purchase an inexpensive ring and have her try it once. This, to an extent, will help you get an idea of the engagement ring size you would need for her.
Tip: Make sure that the pretend recipient hands are similar in size to that of your girlfriend.
Friends often play a major role in love stories, why not yours? If you know your girlfriend’s friends, ask one of them for her ring size. Chances are that she might already have the insight but in case if she doesn’t, she can get it for you. She may enact for ring shopping for fun with your girlfriend and get her ring finger professionally sized or can find out some other way! Leave it to her friend’s imagination. We’re sure she will have something to help you out.
If you are in good terms with her family and have a comfort level with them, you can involve them in planning the surprise. Her Mom, sister or cousin can easily help you in picking an engagement ring perfect to her size.
Caution: Remind them not to spill the beans out of excitement!
You might borrow one of her rings for a day but you need to be careful with this. You got to have a perfect excuse for this or she might get a hint!
Caution: Make sure that the ring you borrow is the one which she wears on a similarly sized finger!
Though this trick can be quite difficult, but if you are really good at estimation, you can go for it. Hold her hand gently into yours and check if her finger is similar in size to any of your fingers. Who knows her ring finger might be of the same size as that of your pinky?
Well, if you both have discussed marriage earlier as well, ask her directly about her ring size! Don’t worry of the surprise being spoiled! After all, you are not going to tell her when and how you are planning to give it to her. Just ask her you want to have all the information with you to be ready in advance so as to make everything perfect on the actual engagement day. We are sure she will fall in love with you all over again thinking about your love for her!
Thus, these are the tips and tricks that can help you get the perfect engagement size ring for her but the risk is always there as these are just estimations! If you are going for a customized engagement ring, we recommend having the exact ring size as certain designs might not lend themselves to being easily resized. Eternity bands usually fall into this category.
In the end, no matter how you do, who’s around, where are you, just get a perfect sized engagement ring, gather her close and make her wear the ring with all the love.
