Proposing to your significant other should be one of life's biggest highlights. It's essential to prepare to make sure the moment goes smoothly, and one of those tasks is a bit more daunting than it sounds: finding your partner's ring size. You want the proposal to be a surprise, so you probably don't want to ask them directly. How can you obtain this information in secret? Read on to find out!
Use One Of Their Other Rings
The best way of indirectly find your partner's ring size is to have a reliable point of reference. If your partner owns other fashion rings, you are in luck! Try to choose one they wear on their ring finger and "borrow" it for the day when they are not around.
The next step is to bring that ring to a jeweller directly for measurement. They should be able to tell you the ring size fairly quickly. This way, you will have a reliable size to use as a base for choosing the proper engagement ring. While it is the quickest way to obtain an accurate measurement, be careful you don't get caught with the other ring. You could run the risk of them finding out the secret if they know you have their jewellery.
Trace an Existing Ring
Now let's say that you don't feel comfortable borrowing your partner's jewellery. If this is the case, you will have to get a bit crafty about obtaining the measurement.
If they have other fashion rings in their jewellery collection, wait for them to fall asleep or go out for a cup of coffee. Then, very carefully select the appropriate ring and trace the outline onto a piece of paper. Be careful not to leave any marks with your writing instrument, and trace as accurately as you can. You can then bring the result into a jeweller for an accurate measurement.
Confide in Friends and Family
Now let's say that your partner doesn't have any fashion rings for you to base a measurement off of. There are ways that you can get the information from her directly without giving it away, but you will need some backup to help out.
First, if your significant other's parents already know about the upcoming proposal, it is likely they either know or can find out your partner's ring size. If that is not the case, you can always try phoning in a friend for help.
A crucial factor: stay away from friends and family you would classify as being gossips. You don't want to risk your significant other finding out about the proposal and spoiling the surprise. The key is to pick a person you can confide in 100% of the time. This way, the risk is pretty low that they will spill the beans and you can carry on your plans without much issue.
Use the Jeweller to Your Advantage
If your choice is to phone a friend, here is the setup. Secretly plan a trip for your significant other and a friend to go to a local jewellery store, but speak with the friend a few days before to hatch a plan. Make sure the friend has a reasonable reason why they want to go whether it be looking for a gift or purchasing a jewelry piece for an upcoming event.
When they are browsing around the store, have your friend convince your significant other to try on a few rings. The jeweller will be able to find your partner's ring size and you might even get some insight into what kind of styles she prefers. However, if your friend is too chatty or nervous, the secret might be blown! This is a high-risk, high reward idea that could pay off in spades if executed correctly.
