When beginning the search for an engagement ring, a common question or concern for shoppers is figuring out the best way to discreetly determine their partner’s ring size. The truth is, it’s actually quite uncommon for people to know their exact size. Even jewelry enthusiasts may have only a rough estimate. Here are our best tips!
If your partner has a ring that they wear frequently, you can sneak it away, place it over a millimeter ruler, and snap an aerial photo. Once we have the inside diameter of the ring, we can convert it to a finger size. You’ll want to keep these things in mind:
1. Which finger your partner wears the ring. People will often wear fashion rings on their middle or index finger. These fingers will be larger than their ring finger.
2. The fit. You want the ring to be snug so that it doesn’t spin around on your partner’s finger.
3. The width of their ring. The wider the ring, the tighter the fit will be.
