Ask a friend
If you want a surprise proposal, a great way is to ask a friend for her ring size. Even if she doesn’t know, she could be the one to subtly ask. She could also take your girlfriend engagement ring shopping just “for fun” and report the size back. We always have groups of girlfriends trying on rings in the shop and we will write down everyones size. She can then casually drop the card back with you for the correct size.
Sneak a ring
You can snag a ring from her jewelry box. Make sure it is a current ring she is wearing and that you know what finger it is on. Even if it is not her ring finger – we can typically help you approximate the size. Just make sure it’s not her favorite ring, or she will be tearing apart the house looking for it.
Send us a picture of her hand
We’ve seen enough hands over the years to be able to help you find an approximate size of her hand. Just send us a photo of her hand with or without rings on it, and we can help you determine the size.
Buy the ring and size it after
This is the most popular and reliable option. Unless you know her size exactly, lots of times you will have to adjust the ring to make sure it fits after the proposal. You can find a local jeweler to size the ring exactly for her hand. She can always get it readjusted later too!
