If done right, asking for your beloved's hand in marriage can be one of the most exciting, romantic, and rewarding moments of your entire life. While it's not difficult to keep most aspects of your proposal secret from your special someone, this can present certain issues. One of the largest complications is, of course, how are you supposed to determine your beloved's ring size without them knowing?
So, to help with this tricky situation, our experienced bridal staff at BARONS Jewelers would like to share these five simple tips to help ensure that any engagement ring will fit absolutely perfectly.
Tip #1: Ask Her!
Let's start with probably the simplest way to determine your future bride's ring size, just ask her!
While this may seem overly-simplistic, it is clearly the best way to find out exactly what size ring she wears. Now this doesn't mean that you have to reveal your big secret. You can take this step early in the relationship, long before you consider proposing and write down her size somewhere that you'll remember to look later. If you are already deep into a relationship, it may be a bit more awkward asking the question. However, just because you ask about your bride's ring size doesn't mean that she has any idea of when or how you're going to pop the big question, nor will she have any idea of what kind of engagement ring you're planning to present to her.
Tip #2: Enlist Help!
Another easy way to determine your sweetheart's engagement ring size is to enlist one of your bride's friends or family members to help you out. Simply have a friend or family member bring up ring sizes in the context of a normal conversation and have them report back with their "findings."
Not only is this a great way to figure out ring size, it's also a great way to figure out what sort of engagement ring style your future bride might prefer in a way that is unlikely to point back to you.
Warning: Be sure to find a friend or family member that you can trust to not spill the beans and ruin your surprise proposal!
Tip #3: Find a Ring She Already Loves!
One of the easiest ways to ensure that your engagement ring will fit is to borrow a ring that your love already wears and bring it to the bridal jewelry experts at BARONS Jewelers. One of our team will be able to measure the ring and determine the exact size that you'll need.
But, if you're unable to get a ring away from her long enough, then there are still a few ways to take this approach:
1. While your significant other is in the shower (or doing something else where she has to take off her ring), grab the ring and trace the inside of it on a piece of paper.
2. If there's no paper around, then try tracing the inside of the band on to your own finger and head straight to BARONS to get the line measured.
Tip #4: Take her to BARONS!
Now this tip requires a little bit of planning, but it is definitely the surest way to find the correct ring size. All you have to do is find a way to get her into BARONS' Legacy Showroom and have a member of the BARONS' staff measure her exact ring size.
To get you loved one into BARONS, you could try telling her that you need to stop into BARONS to find a gift for your mother or another family member, or to take a look at the wide selection of men's watches available at BARONS. Whatever the excuse, make sure to get her into BARONS Jewelers in Dublin.
Tip #5: The Bigger the Better!
Even if with these tips, you still might end up getting the wrong sized ring. If this happens to you, don't worry. It's fairly simple and inexpensive to re-size an engagement ring to the correct size. For example, the jewelry repair and customization team at BARONS is skilled at ring re-sizing, and can even add personalized engraving to the band of most rings.
