Determining the correct ring size is a crucial step when planning to buy an engagement ring. An ill-fitting ring can cause discomfort and risk of loss. Here are some methods and tips to determine the ring size accurately:
1. Professional Sizing
If possible, the most reliable method is to visit a jeweler for professional sizing. They'll have the tools and expertise to ensure a perfect fit. This is typically a free service.
2. Use a Ring Sizer
A ring sizer is a tool that can provide an accurate measurement of the finger. Many jewelers offer this tool, and it's easy to use. Simply slide it onto the finger like a ring until it fits comfortably.
3. Ask for Help
If you're planning a surprise proposal, ask family or friends if they know your partner's ring size. Or, you could playfully try on each other's rings in a nonchalant manner to find a similar size.
4. Use a Printable Ring Sizer
If you can't get to a jeweler, you can print a ring sizer from a reliable online source. These are strips of paper that you cut out and wrap around the finger to find the size. Follow the instructions carefully to ensure accuracy.
5. Choose an Adjustable Ring
Choose an engagement ring, which can be resized after the proposal. This can be a good option if you're unsure about the size. We recommend a high polish solitaire. The advantage of this type of design is its versatility and ease of resizing. The absence of additional stones on the band makes it possible to adjust the size of the ring across a large range without risk of damaging any accent stones or altering the overall design. This can be especially beneficial if you're unsure of your partner's exact ring size, as adjustments can be made after the proposal.
Things to Remember:
- The size of a person’s fingers can change throughout the day due to weather, diet, activity, and more. Try to measure the finger at a few different points in the day for the most accurate size.
- The ring should fit snugly on the finger but still slide on and off relatively easily. If it's too tight, it could cut off circulation, but if it's too loose, it could slide off and get lost.
- If in doubt, it's often better to err on the larger side. A ring that's too small may not go past the knuckle during the proposal, which can interrupt a moment that's ideally smooth and romantic. Having a ring that's a bit too large is generally less problematic. It will still be able to slide onto the finger during the proposal, and you can then have it resized for a perfect fit afterwards.
