Surprising your fiancée for the proposal means that you have to be able to get the right ring size without her knowing. Without the right size, you will have to return to have it re-sized. There are several methods that you can use to determine her ring size without her knowing.
- The easiest way to determine her ring size is to ‘borrow’ one of her current rings. It has to be a ring that properly fits her wedding ring finger (that is the 4th finger of the left hand).
- If you cannot leave the home with the ring, you can draw a trace of the ring on a piece of paper and the jeweler can determine the diameter of the ring. Or you could also opt to create a mold using a bar of soap or clay.
- You can also use a piece of paper or thread while she sleeps to measure her finger.
- If you are in doubt buy the ring a larger size. It is easier to size down the ring. But only choose this option if the jeweler has indicated that the type of ring you have chosen can easily be resized.
