Once you know what style diamond engagement ring you want to buy and are comfortable with your budget, you have to handle the most basic question – what size ring do you get? You obviously don't want it to be too small so that she can't put it on immediately, but you also don't want it to be too big and risk it falling off before being sized properly.
So how do you get it right? Here are three basic tricks we've learned along the way…
One day when she is out, slip one of her rings onto your own finger and mark how far down it goes. When you get to the jewelry store you can then try on their ring sizer and select the size that hits the same spot. Voila!
Download and print a ring sizer from a jewelry store or request for one from us and match it up to a ring in her jewelry box.
If she knows you are in the market for a ring, just ask her. That way, there are no questions about what's right or wrong.
Plus, here's a big hint! Most jewelers will recommend that if her left hand is her non-dominant hand, you buy a smaller size engagement ring (generally about a ¼ size smaller) than the ring size she wears on her right hand.
No matter what, within a few days of popping the question, take her into the jewelry store you purchased her ring from and have a professional check the sizing. You will both feel a lot better that way!
It’s all worth it in the end…we promise.
