Stop guessing: Ways to know your partner’s ring size

An engagement can be pretty nerve-wracking. Because aside from the fact that you have to keep it a secret, you also have to prepare many things. And among those preparations include choosing the perfect engagement ring.

In connection, asking your partner directly what their ring size is might take away the element of surprise of you proposing, and that is the last thing you want. We understand that it is your dream to pull off a perfect marriage proposal, and you might be racking your brains out now for ways to know your partner’s ring size.

Well, worry no more because we at Charming Jewellery Store have some tips on how you can stealthily know your partner’s ring size without them knowing.

Ask help from friends or family

Asking for help from your partner’s family or friends is one of the best ways to know their ring size without asking them for it. If their closest sibling, relative, or friend does not know their exact ring size, they can casually ask them. One better way is asking their family or friend to take them to an engagement ring shopping for fun. Through this, your partner will be able to check their ring size professionally, and also, they might drop hints about the style they want! This will make your ring shopping easier.

Borrow a ring and trace it

Another effective way to know their ring size is to borrow a ring from them. However, if you want to keep it a surprise, you should be careful and subtle if this is the tactic you will use. If you borrow it and take it with you, make sure that you will get a ring they overlook even if it goes missing.

On the other hand, if you are terrified about the idea of getting your partner’s ring without their knowledge, you can try the tracing method instead. All you have to do is grab a piece of paper and trace the inner and outer parts of the ring. Do this multiple times to ensure that the ring traces you have made are all consistent and of the same size.

Bar of soap or wax

This method is closely similar to the tracing technique, but this one might be more accurate than tracing your partner’s ring on a piece of paper. For this tactic, you are going to need a bar of soap or wax. Using your partner’s ring, all you have to do is press the ring into the bar of soap or soft wax. By doing this, the ring will leave an impression that the jeweller can use.

Compare your fingers with your partner

This might be a little less accurate, but comparing your fingers with your partner’s is another method of knowing their ring size without asking them for it. When you are holding hands, you can subtly check if any of your fingers are of similar size to their left ring finger. For instance, your pinky finger might have the same size as your ring finger. You can also try borrowing one of their rings and try it on your fingers. This way, you will have a clearer vision of the measurement of their ring size.

Although this method is not as accurate as others, this can still help your jeweller assist you as you shop for an engagement ring.

Get creative

Getting creative might save you from needing to ask your partner about their ring size directly. You can think of some creative ways to get the hand size of your partner. Some examples are creating a card by painting your and your partner’s hand and pressing it into the paper. Another is you can create a paper ring for your partner. This could be an easier way of getting the accurate ring size of your partner.

Be subtle

If you cannot think of any other way to know your partner’s ring size aside from asking them directly, there is still a way to ask them without them knowing. You can use the excuse of seeking their help in ring shopping for your parent or sibling. You can pretend that the recipient’s ring size is the same as your partner’s, which is why you are asking for their help. Through this tactic, you will be able to know their ring size by casually asking them, requesting them to ring shopping with you, or you can purchase an inexpensive ring and have them try it.

Measure it while they are sleeping

This is good news for people whose partners are heavy sleepers. If your partner does not quickly wake up, you can grab a pen and paper or a measuring tape to know their ring size. If you use a piece of paper and pen, you have to wrap the paper around your partner’s ring finger and mark where it ends. Once you are successful in doing that, you can measure it yourself or bring it to the jeweller for a more accurate measurement.
