Finding Her Ring Size
An essential element of figuring out her ring size, shouldn’t be the reason of giving away your well-planned surprise. Specializing in bespoke engagement rings, many of our customers ask us about tips and ways to find an accurate ring size but the truth is that it is not an easy task!
We have tried our best to compile a guide for your reference which will help you in finding her ring size accurately
Keeping a secret is hard enough, and something like this needs a calm and composed conduct. Subtle hints from jewellery billboard ads or talking about another friend’s ring choices are good places to start the conversation. Don’t be surprised if she gives you her size and design preferences as well. Constant repetition might provide an opportunity of spotting you out, so be very cautious.
Sneaking around her jewellery box might give you the answers you’re looking for. Remember to find a ring she wears occasionally, that fits her left ring finger so you have a perfect fit. Take a pencil and trace the ring from inside on a sheet of paper. Repeat this at least 3-4 times to get an accurate drawing for the diameter.
Once you have an accurately traced circle, then using our ring measurement guide, you’ll easily be able to pick out her size.
REQUEST A SIZER
Feeling a bit insecure with your conclusions, we could send you a complimentary ring sizer for your convenience and assurance. Work around the story of a dummy ring, perhaps one for your mother or sister and ask her for help with determining their size. Being subtle is important so she doesn’t fish out your plan.
ASK FOR HELP
A woman’s girlfriends would generally have a list of details ready, waiting for you to just ask. Not only size, but styles and colour stone choices could also be part of their long list.
RECRUIT A SPY
Seeking help from a friend to subtly get her accurate size might be your best bet.
TRY YOUR LOCAL JEWELLER
If you can come up with a great story and get your partner’s fingers professionally measured at one of the mall jewelers, then it would make sizing a lot more accurate for your special moment.
Although we are now moving away from the surprise, asking her for her ring size might have been just what she was waiting for. Letting her choose a ring matching her style and personality coupled with the correct size is perhaps the trend modern day couples are moving towards.
From what we have heard from customers, a convincing story and a confident approach is all you need to find her ring size.

TEMPERATURE IS KEY
Always be sure to measure fingers at the end of the day. This is because fingers swell or shrink at different times and temperatures. Selecting a relaxed time to measure your fingers gives the most accurate reading.
FACTOR IN THOSE KNUCKLES
Many of us have slim fingers with larger knuckles, which is why it is vital to measure both the base of your finger and the width around the knuckles, selecting a size in between.
AVOID MEASURING WITH STRING
Although its an easy method, the string test is very unreliable. The string often tends to stretch or break giving you an inaccurate measurement.
CROSS CHECK RESULTS
It is always important to cross check results 3-4 times to rule out any errors.
SELECT A LARGER SIZE
If you find the size you’re looking for, falling between two values, choose a larger size. It is always easier to size down than it is to size up.
WIDTH OF BAND MATTERS
When measuring size, always remember to keep in mind the width of the band. Thicker bands tend to have a tighter grip as compared to slimmer bands.
LEFTY OR RIGHTY
Hand dominance tends to affect the finger size resulting in slightly larger proportions. Don’t forget to measure her left ring finger.
