Creative Ways to Get Your Partner's Ring Size
Is there a purchase more important than an engagement ring? This ring holds monumental importance, as it is a symbol of the love shared between you and your partner. This is the token you are going to present to your partner when you ask them to share the rest of their life with you, so it is vitally important that you get it right.
In order to take your loved one by surprise, you need to be in the know about what engagement rings they love. Part of that means that you need to get their ring size without them suspecting. But how do you pull that off? We give you 5 creative ideas on how you can go about finding out their ring size.
Recruit Trusted Friends or Family Members
Oftentimes when people are becoming more serious with their partner, they will begin musing future plans to friends or family members. By simply asking immediate family members and their closest friends, there’s a high chance they already know their ring size.
Be careful, though! If you don’t ask them to keep your secret safe, or if they have a hard time keeping information to themselves, they might let the cat out of the bag.
Have Them Go Engagement Ring Shopping With a Friend
Similar to the first way, this one involves trusting another person with the information that you are actively planning on proposing.
The idea is to have one of your partner’s friends ask your partner to go ring shopping for them, the friend. While trying on engagement rings, it’s then easy to get your partner to try on a ring or two themselves and find out exactly what size they are. This is also a great way to figure out exactly what types of metals, settings, and styles your partner prefers.
This one can also be tricky if you nor your partner have any friends who are in relationships that might be headed toward marriage. But by having your partner get professionally sized at a jeweler, you’ll know for sure that you’ll have the right size.
Enlist an Already-Married or Engaged Friend
At a gathering, have a married or engaged friend bring up rings and then suggest that they all swap and try each others’ rings on. While your partner is trying on various rings, the friends can pay attention to which rings fit your partner best and then pass that information along to you.
This is another great opportunity to get some insight into what your partner likes, so make sure to ask plenty of follow-up questions to their friends when you’re talking to them next.
Use One of Their Rings
If you’re wanting to keep it a surprise from everyone, finding out your partner’s ring size gets a bit trickier. But that doesn’t mean it’s impossible!
The easiest way to get your partner’s ring size without anyone knowing is by simply getting ahold of one of the rings they already have, preferably one they wear often. Once you have this, you can take it to a jeweler yourself and get the answer from a professional.
If you’re nervous about them missing their jewelry and then becoming suspicious, there are a variety of ways to still get the ring size:
- Take a pen and trace the inside of the ring on a piece of paper
- Use clay, a bar of soap, or putty and create an imprint of the ring onto it
- Put the ring onto one of your fingers comfortably and trace around it with a pen
Most couples talk about engagement before any sort of proposal takes place. There’s no shame in straight-up asking your partner what their ring size is as well as what type of ring they’d prefer. You could even make it romantic by going engagement ring shopping together!
At the end of the day, an engagement ring is something they will wear every day for the rest of their life. Getting it right is important, so asking says more about your concern for their happiness than it does about your desire to have a “wow” moment.
