A. Via friends/family/co-worker
if you don’t know your significant other’s ring size, don’t fret. It’s great to have someone on the inside. Talk to their family/friends/co-worker if they know about the proposal.
B. Secretly borrowed a ring of your significant other
Secretly borrow a ring that your gift recipient doesn’t wear every day. Take it to your local jeweler and ask them to tell you what size the ring is. One hand is usually slightly larger than the other, so it is even better if you can find a ring that he/she wears on the hand you intend to purchase the ring for
C. Be Creative
Sometimes, you just need to be creative to get the job done. You can measure her fingers with string, paper, or thread while she is sleeping. If she notices, you can simply say you are caressing her fingers
4. Some Important instructions
A. Finger shape
Yes, there are different kinds of fingers, and they can impact ring size and fit
B. Band width effects
rings with thinner bands tend to run a bit larger, whereas thicker rings have a more snug fit. The more metal around your finger, the more space it takes up and the tighter it fits.
C. Time of measuring a ring size
Measure your finger at the end of the day and when they’re warm since your fingers are smaller earlier in the day and when they’re cold. Measure your finger 3-4 times to eliminate any chance of an inaccurate reading.
D. International ring sizing
In the United States and Canada, ring sizes range from 3 to 13. While Australia and the United Kingdom actually use an alphabetical letter sizing system.
