[Quick Tip] 3 Easy Ways To Secretly Find Out Her Ring Size

You're ready to buy her the engagement ring of her dreams. You've done the research, you are ready to start shopping for rings, but you don't know her ring size. Now what?

You want to pull off the ultimate surprise proposal, but you don't want to give her any ideas by asking her outright for her ring size. So how else can you find out? We've encountered many people who find the perfect ring only to get caught up when it comes time to order it with the correct ring size. Based on our experience, here are the top three easiest ways we recommend to secretly find out her ring size:

1) Ask her friends

This one is pretty simple and definitely the best place to start. Begin by asking her very best friend. From childhood, college, whoever is her go to girl. Odds are, she might've already prepped her best friend with the answer to this question. But hey, if this route doesn't give you the answer, don't worry, just move on to another friend. Maybe one of her girlfriends recently got engaged and she tried on the ring? You never know! This is definitely the best place to begin when trying to secretly find out her ring size.

If you decide to go this route, one very helpful tip is to also make sure the friend can be trusted with your secret...especially one this big! You need to know that even if they don't know the answer, they'll keep the proposal ideas between the two of you.

2) Take a ring she already owns to a jeweler

The second easiest way to find out her ring size is by borrowing one of her rings and taking it to get measured at a jeweler. But this one does have a tendency to go slightly awry.

The trick with this technique is that you want to know what finger she normally wears her ring on. Is it the middle finger, the thumb, or her ring finger? This can alter the accuracy when trying to get the size of her ring finger. Before taking one of her rings to get measured, take note of what finger she wears it on.

For the most success, try to find the ring she often wears on either her actual ring finger, or the fourth finger on her right hand. This will help you achieve the most accurate measurement.

3) Get others to ask her

Did you already try asking her friends? Do they not know? Well I'm sure you've contemplated finding a sneaky way to casually ask her this question. But instead of you trying to slyly bring up this question, have one of her girlfriends do it!

Having one of them do it is less obvious, will most likely draw the least amount of attention, and will aid in surprising her even more when you actually do pop the question. Although this is one of the top three easiest ways to find out her ring size, this one is trickier than the first two. You want someone who is sneaky enough to casually find out, but someone who will do this is in a way that won't draw any attention or suspicion. Choose wisely!
