Pulling off a surprise proposal can be a challenge if you need to ask your intended what their ring size is beforehand.
Following are some suggestions for determining the correct ring size. Rest assured, if you need to guess, and miss
the mark, a resizing is a simple and inexpensive procedure that can be done quickly at any jewelry store. Lumera
will also resize the ring at no charge (see details).
How to determine ring size:
If you can get possession of a ring that already fits the recipient's third finger, do so. By comparing the ring
printable ring sizer below, you can accurately determine the correct ring size.
If your intended is a heavy sleeper, wrap a string around their third finger and pinch the point where the ends
meet. Compare that measurement to the size scale in the
printable ring sizer below.
Check with a parent or close friend. Often women will have tried on each other's jewelry, or a parent will have
purchased a ring in the past.
Ask a friend who appears to have similar sized fingers what ring size they wear. This may not be exact, but it
will allow you to purchase a ring that fits reasonably well and is easily resized after the proposal.
If all else fails, simply choose the size of ring that looks closest from the
printable ring sizer
below. The most common ring size for a woman is between 5 and 7. Most women can easily accommodate a ring within a half size
of their true ring size.
Above all, keep in mind that not knowing the ring size does not have to upset your proposal plan. Just go with your
best estimate using the options above, and size up when in doubt. After the proposal, the ring can be correctly sized
in no more than a day at most jewelry stores, or at Lumera Diamonds (see details).
