Planning a Proposal Event? Here Are 3 Ways to Measure Ring Size

Congratulations are in order! You’ve found the person you would like to spend the rest of your life with. If you’re thinking of planning a proposal event, shopping for an engagement ring is probably the necessary next step to take. Beyond the centre stone and design of the ring, there are also other necessary factors to consider, one of them being the size of the ring to purchase. 

Whether you want your proposal to be a surprise or not, getting your partner’s ring size correct is important to ensure that this special day celebrating the start of your new future together goes along smoothly without any hiccups. Can you imagine sliding the  engagement ring onto your sweetheart’s finger only to have it not fit? Or worse, for the ring to accidentally fall off? Purchasing the right size for an engagement ring can be difficult. That’s why Princess Gem has put together this guide with three ways to help you find the perfect size match!

1. Borrow Another Ring from Your Partner

If you’re hoping to plan a surprise proposal, borrowing another ring from your partner’s jewellery case might be a good way to find the right ring size to purchase. If you opt for this method, be sure to choose a ring that’s similar in size to your partner’s left ring finger. You should also take care not to borrow one that she wears on the daily and will notice if it is missing. If you believe that your eagle eyed partner will know at once if one of her rings is missing, another option is to quickly trace a circle of the inside and outside of her ring. You can show this to the store associate if you’re shopping for the ring in person and they’ll be able to help you out.

2. Ask Friends and Family for Help

Enlist the help of your friends and family to find your partner’s perfect ring size. You can pretend to shop for a relative like your mother, sister or grandmother and ask your partner to try a ring on their own fingers for reference. You can then gift the ring to your family member in front of your significant other to ease suspicions and keep your proposal plans a secret. Or, get one of your partner’s friends to help you out! Arrange for them to “spontaneously” take your sweetheart ring shopping for fun and then get the details about the sizing from your mutual friend later! Your friend might also be able to find out about her preferences. For example, if she prefers a classic engagement ring like a diamond or a moissanite, or if she would rather own a different gemstone. 

3. Discuss Ring Sizing With Your Partner

The best way to find the right  engagement ring size fit might just be to ask them directly. There is an upward trend of Millennials and Gen Z couples in Singapore opting to shop for an engagement ring together – and for good reason. You’ll not only be able to get a full understanding of their tastes and preferences, but also find a ring within what you both believe to be a reasonable budget. While diamond rings might once have been the only option, other gemstone engagement rings on the market like moissanite rings are gaining traction for their quality, beauty and affordability. With this in mind, the topic of ring size might be something to bring up the next time the conversation comes around.
