Asking her ring size is a dead giveaway you’re up to something special, and you want this to be a surprise, right? That’s why we’re here.
If you don’t already know her ring size, here are three discreet ways to figure it out (depending on how smooth you are, of course).
Option 1: Ask her friends!
If you’re lucky, your lady’s girlfriends (or sister, or mother) will know the answer! Women talk ;)
Option 2: Have her friends ask her.
This can be tricky because if they’re not sly enough, they will give you away. Tread lightly on this option unless you know they’re detective worthy.
Option 3: Borrow a ring.
But only when she’s not looking! Be sure to grab a ring that she wears on the same finger, or part of the finger you would like to gift (midi rings are a thing). You can measure it at home using a piece of string, a ruler, and a pen or pencil. Simply measure the inside diameter of the ring (just the open space, no metal included in measurement) and compare your finding to the size chart below:
Don’t fret too much. As long as you’re within two sizes of her actual size, you can take it to a jeweler to be fitted to perfection.
TOVE tip: If you’re in between sizes, it’s always safest to size up!
