WHAT IF YOU'RE PLANNING A SECRET PROPOSAL ?
Aside from the where, what, why and how of your surprise proposal, getting a ring to fit your intended's finger ahead of time can be a tricky prospect. The following are a few tips for secretly obtaining your partner's ring size, gained from the collective knowledge of our experienced team here at Splendor Diamonds.
Once you have discovered your partner's size, you will be better able to peruse our extensive collection of diamond solitaire and gem-set engagement rings in a full choice of precious metals.
START WITH THE AVERAGES
The average ring size for most women is between a size "J" and size "L". We also know that the average sized woman in the U.K is about 5-feet 6-inches tall. You can go off these averages to determine her ring size without her knowing.
If she's shorter or weighs a little more, you can go up a size or two. If she's thinner and smaller, maybe try a size down. You get the idea.
While this might work, it isn't the best way to find a ring size. Everyone is different and not every woman is going to fit in with the average. Some women also like a tighter-fitting ring, while others prefer a loose fit.
So here is another exclusive and proven formula from Splendor Diamonds of determining the ring size according to your girlfriend's dress size. The average dress size for most women in UK is between a size "8" and size "14".
This exclusive formula of determining the finger size according to the dress size has been invented by the founder of our company after years of research & surveys.
Dress size (8) - Finger size - Letter "I" or "J" but "J" would be an safer option. (Best option for small and petite fingers).
Dress size (10) - Finger size - Letter "K" or "L" but "L" would be an safer option. (Best option for someone who is taller).
Dress size (12) - Finger size - Letter "M" or "N" but "N" would be an safer option.
It's a good idea to keep in mind that the dominant hand might be a little bigger. So if she's right handed, her ring finger on the left hand - where she'll wear her engagement ring - might be smaller in size than the one on the right. If you'd rather not guess on her ring size, there a plenty of other ways to find out your girlfriend's ring size at home.
SOME RINGS ARE HARD TO RESIZE
If all else fails, try going with a larger ring size. The idea here is that it's always easier to size down that it is to size up, If the worst happens and you select a ring in the incorrect size, our expert craftsmen can resize it for you.
The only exception to this service is with full eternity and some other gemstone rings; due to the setting, these cannot be resized, although they can be exchanged for an alternative size.
At Splendor Diamonds, we consider ourselves to be the experts when it comes to engagement rings and we recognise that simply obtaining the perfect fit is extremely important.
With that in mind, we will always work with you to ensure you find the perfect ring with the perfect fit for that special moment.
ALTERNATIVE RING SIZING OPTIONS
Your partner's friends and family are a great source of help if you're still struggling to find the right size. They may be better place to get the ring size without raising suspicion so, if you can enlist their help, take advantage of it.
Just be sure that they will keep your secret if you want the proposal to be a surprise. If in doubt, choose a slightly larger size.
It is easier to make a larger ring smaller without damaging the integrity of the piece. Larger size will also help to salvage the romance of the moment and if the size was smaller, it simply won't go onto your beloved's finger.
If your partner is likely to notice the disappearance of a ring, then carefully draw around the inside of the ring on a piece of paper, for a more approximate size guide. You can match this with the table below and you will be able to get a good estimate of sizing.
