If your mind is made up with a surprise proposal there are ways to figure out your significant others ring size. You’ve got to be cool and be subtle about it. Women are a lot smarter than we give them credit for sometimes. If you blow your cover, you’ll lose that OMG moment. Be cool. Ask her to help you pick out a ring for a sister, mother, grandmother or someone she knows. Ask to borrow her fingers and have her check some sizes for someone’s hand that is close to hers. You can casually ask her for your own reference what her ring sizes are and if you really got some nerve buy an inexpensive size 6 ring and have her try it on. Size 6 to 6.5 is the most common ring finger size for the average woman. You can tell her the ring is for your mother and actually give it to your mother so she won’t suspect anything. We will teach you how to secretly get her ring size.
How to Secretly Get Her Ring Size
Check with Her Friends
Enlist the help of a close friend that already knows her ring size or can get it without blowing your cover. Make sure this friend can keep a secret and when it comes to getting engaged women have a hard time not telling someone, especially if it’s one of their friends that’s getting married. Her friend can also take her shopping for rings and get the information that way too.
Borrow One of Her Rings
This is a crafty way to figure out her ring size while keeping it a secret. Snag one of the rings that she wears on her right finger if possible or one that is close in size to her ring finger. Simply use a ring sizer or take it to a jeweler and have them size it for you and get it back before she notices!
Trace the Ring
If the idea of losing one of her rings while you’re out getting it sized scares you? Then, place the ring on a piece of paper and trace the outer and inner ring with a pen or pencil. A jeweler will be able to get her ring size from your amazing work. Trace it a few times and make sure it looks consistent. Using a piece of clay is also a slick way to get an impression of the ring.
Enlist the Help for One of Her Friends
If your significant other has a friend that’s engaged, you’re in business. Get her to help you by asking your girlfriend to try on the ring and see what she thinks about it. Remember, women love diamonds and will jump at the chance to share information with a friend. This is also a great opportunity for you to ask her later what she thought of her friends ring? This can disclose a wealth of vital information to help you get her ring size and what she likes.
Compare Her Fingers
This is a little harder to pull off as you might appear to be desperate to get her ring size. Be cool. When you’re holding her hand, see if one of her fingers is about the same size as one of your fingers. Your pinky finger might be the same size as her ring finger. This isn’t 100% accurate, however, the more information you can provide your jeweler, the better your odds are for him to get the right ring size.
Simply Ask Your Partner
There are people who like doing things the hard way and there’s those who are just blunt. If you’ve been discussing getting married for quite a while, just be blunt and ask her if she knows her ring size? This does ruin some of the spoils, however, she still has no idea how or when you’re going to ask her? You can get her ring size by taking her to a jewelry store or purchase a ring sizing kit.
Can You Keep a Secret
This might sound like a parody but sometimes men can be their own worst enemy. If you tell one of your best friends and they tell someone else, then the secret is out. You might as well go all the way and update your Facebook page to “Getting Hitched”. Be careful about who you enlist with getting help to finding her ring size.
