Measure Ring Size Without Your Loved One Knowing Using These 6 Methods!

After months of searching, you've finally found the one and are ready to propose! You're not the only one who wonders how to find your partner's engagement ring size without them knowing when planning a surprise engagement. With the help of our jewelry experts, we've discovered all the different ways to measure the ring size of the person you want to propose to.

  1. Be Subtle

    If you are dead set on making a surprise proposal, but you also want to ensure that your measurement of ring size is accurate by obtaining the information directly from the source, you will need to acquire the information in a very stealthy manner. For instance, if you are going to propose to your girlfriend, you could act as if you are going to buy a diamond ring for your mother, sister, grandmother, or even yourself. You could also pretend that you are going to buy the diamond ring for someone else entirely. Just make sure that this pretend recipient is someone whose finger is roughly the same size as the left ring finger on your partner's hand. Ask your partner in a casual conversation about their ring size so that you can use it as a reference. mIf you really want to take the hoax to the next level, you should go out and buy a cheap diamond ring and then have your partner try it on to see if it is the right size measurement is for them. And once that's done, you can appease your guilty conscience by giving that fake diamond ring to your mother, your sister, or your grandmother.

  2. Ask For Help

    If you want to find out your partner's ring size, one of the best things you can do is ask one of their friends. If the friend does not immediately know, then the friend in question can be the one to inquire about it (nonchalantly). One step better, ask the friend to take your partner to a diamond engagement ring shopping "for fun." Your significant other will be able to get their ring size measurements taken by a professional and may even give you some hints about the kinds of styles they prefer!

  3. Borrow A Ring

    Borrowing one of your partner's diamond rings for the day is yet another tactic that can be employed. It is imperative that you exercise extreme caution when employing this strategy due to the possibility that it will fail. Be sure to borrow a ring that is a size that is comparable to the one that is worn on your partner's left ring finger and that they won't notice is missing.

  4. Leave A Trail

    Try this alternative method instead if the thought of losing one of your partner's rings gives you the willies. You are going to need to take one of their diamond rings and place it on a piece of paper. Create a circle on the ring's interior as well as its exterior using a circle. Repeat this process multiple times to ensure that your ring traces look uniform and can accurately indicate the appropriate ring size. A specialist in Diamond Registry should be able to determine the measurement of the inner diameter from your sketch. Even better, use our ring size conversion chart for even more pinpoint accuracy when you're tracing!

  5. Enlist The Help Of An Engaged Friend

    If you and your partner are hanging out with a friend who is already engaged, sneakily ask that engaged friend to let your partner try on their diamond ring so that you can find the perfect one for your partner. This will give you a general idea of the size range you'll need to start with. You can also take advantage of this situation to ask your partner, in private, what they thought of their friend's engagement ring so that you can try to figure out what kind of ring your partner would prefer.

  6. Compare Fingers

    This approach isn't quite as reliable as others, but if you're out of options, you might as well give it a shot. Check to see if your partner's ring finger is roughly the same ring size as one of your fingers while you are both holding each other's hands. For instance, the size of their left ring finger might be comparable to the size of your pinky. Again, this strategy will not be as accurate as the previous one, but the more measurement information a professional jeweler has about your partner's ring size, the better!
