How to measure your finger...his...or hers...

There are many methods to determine a ring size. There is the traditional, obvious method - measure the finger. We know that this is not always suitable especially if the ring is supposed to be a surprise. So, we have also given  you a few other, less obvious, more discreet methods of finding out a ring size. But first...



The Obvious Method:
1. Wrap a piece of string or paper strip around the base of your finger. Note: If your knuckle is larger than the base, you should measure at the knuckle.

2. Mark the string or paper where it overlaps to form a complete circle.

3. Measure the length of the section of string or paper where it overlaps around the finger.

4. Compare your measurement with the chart to determine the appropriate ring size.

The Sneaky or Discreet Methods:

Have your partner get their ring cleaned at a local jewelers. When they are cleaning it, ask the jeweler for the ring size...secretly, of course. 

Or, when you are shopping for general jewelry, discreetly ask her if a certain ring would fit. She will most likely answer with a yes, I wear size 7 or, no, that is too big or too small because I wear a size 7. And there you have it!
