Do you know your partners finger size?
So, you’ve finally decided that it’s time to pop the question. You’ve picked out the perfect engagement ring from Underwood’s and you have the perfect proposal planned out. There’s one thing standing in your way: You don’t know what ring size you should get! No need to worry! We have some tips and tricks to help you secretly find your future fiancé’s ring size.
1) Ask a friend
Get in touch with a friend or family member of your significant other. They may have bought them a ring as a gift before, or the topic of ring size could have popped up in conversation. If they don’t know, you can always recruit them to help. Have someone take them “window shopping” for a ring and get them to see what their ring size is for “fun”.
Borrow a ring
If you can get your hands on a ring that your partner wears, you can bring it in to Underwood’s and get it measured. If you can, make sure that they usually wear the ring on their right ring finger to get the most accurate size. If they don’t wear a ring on that finger you can still bring it in and get an estimated measurement for another finger. Just be aware that the ring will most likely need to be re-sized.
What if you can’t “borrow” your loved ones ring?
If you’re unable to bring their ring to us without them noticing it’s missing, there are a few tricks you try to get a measurement. First, you can try the ring on yourself and mark on your finger where it falls. Then you can come in and have us find the size that falls in the same place. You can also make an impression of the ring in a bar of soap and bring it in for measurement. Another method is to trace the inside of the borrowed ring with a pencil and have us match the size.
When in doubt, size it up
It’s always better if the ring is slightly too big rather than too small. You want to be able to slip it on their finger when you propose! It’s usually pretty simple… just make sure when you are buying the ring, you make sure it is a ring that can be resized. Sometimes thin bands that are covered in gems cannot be resized. We also recommend proposing first. Once you propose, have your partner come in and we can measure their finger for the perfect size.
