How to Determine Her Ring Size

By Emily G

You’ve been with your partner for a while and things are getting serious.  It’s time to pop the question, but first; what style does she like and more importantly, what is her ring size?  After all, she can’t show off the ring to her girlfriends if it falls in their drink!  Luckily, there are a few foolproof tricks to getting her perfect size.

 

For the Cautious Guy:.

  • Use a ring size chart (found on Google) and compare it to the rings she already owns.

  • Buy a larger size and have it sized down.

For the Savvy Shopper:

  • Enlist a friend to take her ring shopping and have the jeweler determine her size (and maybe even figure out her ring style).

  • Tell her a little white lie and say you’re buddy is buying a ring for his girlfriend with similar size hands, and wants you to ask for hers as a reference.

 

For the Bold at Heart:

  • Pay a little extra attention and figure out which of her rings she wears on her ring finger.  When she’s not wearing it, borrow it to take to the jewelry store for a sizing comparison.

  • When in doubt, ask her.  If you and her have talked about marriage, then it will come as no surprise when you ask what size ring she wears.  This will also give her the chance to tell you what style she likes, and she still will not know when you’re planning on popping the question!

 

Extra Tips:

  • On average, women wear a 6 or 6.5 ring size.

  • The dominant hand is usually larger, so the left ring finger may be smaller.
