Selecting a ring size for your partner doesn't have to be a headache, even if it is for a suprise. Read the guide below to better understand how to get a perfect fit.

How To Measure Your Ring Size

A properly fitting ring should slide over the knuckle and fit snugly on your finger, with a little bit of friction. An ideal fit has a small amount of friction when removing the ring, if it comes off without any effort at all, it is probably too loose.

There are a few different methods to find someone’s ring size, depending on how you choose to go about your proposal. If you are looking to have a surprise proposal, try these to find the correct fit.

  • You could look at the rings that they currently wear. If they have one that they wear over their ring finger, you can measure the diameter of the ring and use an online conversion to find the ring size.
  • You could also take this ring to a jeweler for confirmation or buy a ring mandrel for an accurate at-home measurement.
  • If they have rings but not for their ring finger, it is possible to use the same diameter measuring as above, but be prepared to have the ring resized after the proposal.
  • If these methods aren’t available, you could select an average ring size and be prepared to resize it after the engagement.

Things to consider

  • If you're stuck between two ring sizes, choose the larger size. It's better to have the ring fit loosely than to struggle getting it over the knuckle.
  • Wider rings tend to run smaller, therefore a slightly larger size is required.
  • Avoid measuring the finger on extremely hot days, or early in the morning, Fingers tend to be a bit more swollen in there conditions
  • The average engagement ring size for women is 6-7, while for mens is size 9
