How to Know the Ring Size

How to Size Her Finger Without Letting On

One of the most important things when shopping for an engagement ring is making sure that you purchase the right size ring. While any ring can be adjusted to fit her finger, it is important that you show her that you went out of your way to customize the ring as much in advance as possible. Also, you want her to have to do as little work as possible when it comes to the engagement. Furthermore, it is nice for her to be able to slip the ring on and begin wearing it as soon as possible, rather than having the experience drag on. She will want to show the ring off and you will too.

If you and your girlfriend go shopping for engagement rings together, then you are sure to find the ring that will fit her size. Make sure that she does a sizing chart and take notes. This is one of the key advantages of going engagement ring shopping together – not only will you select a ring that she will like, but it will be the right size.

However, if you want to be totally secretive with your proposal and do not want her to know that the ring is coming, then it is important that you use the best spy tactics possible. First, slip into her room and take one of the rings that she already has. This is a dangerous move because if she discovers the ring is missing, one of two things will happen:

First, she may think that she has lost her ring. If this is the case, she could become upset and sad. You don’t want a sad girlfriend.

Secondly, she may catch on and grow suspicious – especially if the ring shows up again where she knew it hadn’t been only days before.

Therefore, it is up to you to be stealth. First, make the process quick. Try to return the ring on the same day that you took it. Even better, perform the whole process while she is at the office. If she happens to notice that the ring is missing, then it is up to you to come up with some tactics for returning it without arousing suspicion. Never simply return it. You can slip it on the floor, in her purse or some other place. You can even find it at your house – but never return it to the jewelry box once she knows it’s gone – that’s simply too obvious.

Fitting the ring can be tough if you have no ring for comparison. Just remember: don’t get too nervous because you can always change the band size at a later time – like after the proposal when she’s with you.
