How To Find Her Ring Size Without Asking

Secretly Learn Her Ring Size Without Ruining the Surprise

When you’re planning the perfect proposal, the last thing you want to do is blow it by asking her outright “What’s your ring size?” There’s nothing that will put her on alert faster than that simple question. Instead of ruining the surprise, try these helpful tips to figure out her ring size without asking her.

1. Ask Her Favorite Shopping Buddy

It’s likely that she has at least one friend who accompanies her on most of her shopping excursions. Friends who shop together tend to at least have a general idea about each others size and taste. This friend will prove indispensable to you! Your girlfriend’s shopping buddy will have a pretty good guess of her ring size. Added bonus- your girlfriend has probably also discussed engagement ring styles with this friend, meaning they can give you a head start as far as which color metal, cut stone, and style ring she’d love! Make sure you find someone trustworthy- you don’t want a Chatty Kathy to ruin the surprise!

2. Borrow a Ring That She Won’t Miss

If you can find a ring that your girlfriend wears infrequently, or at least, not often enough that she’d realize it was missing,  bring it to your jeweler to give them an idea of her ring size. Proceed with caution! It’s possible that A. the ring you choose may no longer fit her or B. that it’s made to fit a different finger. Even if you run into those two problems, this method is still very useful. If nothing else, you’ll at least be very close to the right size and can get it adjusted after you propose!

3. Ask Her Parents

This will of course alert her parents that you’re planning on popping the question, but it’s still a good way to figure out her ring size. Remember, her parents have been buying her gifts since she was born! If she’s particularly close to her mom, you should definitely approach your would-be-mother-in-law for advice. She’ll know what kind of engagement ring would make her daughter swoon, and mom’s always tend to have a good guess to our sizes!

We hope these tips will help you secretly discover your girlfriend’s ring size without asking her! Now that you know her size, shop our selection of engagement rings now!
