It’s best to choose a friend who you can trust not to spill the beans and preferably, someone good at acting. If you have doubts, skip this approach.
If your significant other is a heavy sleeper, you can try this creative method. Simply get a piece of string (something like this usually works well), and measure their ring finger. Make sure to mark it with a marker pen and bring that measure in during your meeting with us. We can’t guarantee they won’t wake up, so try this method at your own risk!
BORROW ONE OF THEIR RINGS
A great and fool proof way is to snag one of their rings for a day. You need to be careful with this method because it might backfire on you. Some of our customer success stories revolve around this method, especially if their significant other works a busy job, owns many rings or is out of town for a weekend. Make sure that you grab a ring that they wear on a similarly sized finger, the ring finger of their right hand being the optimal choice (unless, of course, they already wear a ring on their left ring finger, which is less likely). Even if you bring in a thumb ring we can usually come up with a close approximation of what size their ring finger will be. If you choose this option, make sure that you choose a ring that isn’t overly important to them and wouldn’t cause any emotional distress if she notices it missing!
Additionally, you can also try on the ring yourself and find a finger that it fits on. Be sure to take note of how and where the ring stops, and let us measure that finger when you come in.
Take one of their rings and place it on a piece of paper. Draw a circle on the inside and outside of the ring. Do this several times to make sure that your ring traces look consistent. We can usually figure out the diameter of your partner’s ring from your sketch and convert that to the appropriate ring size with some minor adjustments. Some of our customers have had success with this method!
