So, you’ve had an amazing idea for a jewelry gift this Valentine's Day. You’ve found a ring design that you just know she’ll love. The gemstone is perfect and you’re about to pay for it when… you realise you don’t know her ring size! What now?
Don’t worry - all is not lost. Follow our handy tips below and you should be able to figure out her ring size and keep the gift a wonderful surprise.
Download Our Ring Sizing App
If she already has a ring for the same finger that you can secretly borrow for a few moments, why not use our ring sizing app? Simply download it to your smartphone, place the ring on the screen and use the slider to adjust the circle until it fits the inside edge of the ring. This will give you the size on screen. Our ring sizing app is available for free from the Apple App Store, the Amazon Kindle Fire Store and the Google Play Store. Just search for ‘Gemporia Ring Sizer’. Find out more here.
Print Off Our Ring Sizing Guide
If you’d prefer to print off a ring sizing guide, simply click here to download your template. Print the template out and use a credit/debit card or ruler to ensure the page has printed at the right scale. From here, simply line up the ring with the printed circles, and the one which closest matches the inside edge of your ring will be the right size.
Request Your Free Ring Sizer From Us
We can send you a free ring sizer from this page so you can find the exact fit. When the resizer arrives, thread the two ends together to create a loop and then pull it around to the point it matches the size of the ring you already have. Try both the ring and the resizer on if you can, and ensure they match in size on the same part of your finger. The arrow on the resizer will show you which ring size to go for.
Talk To Her Friends and Family
Her friends and family may already know her ring size, which would make things very simple indeed. If not though, it’s much less likely to give away the secret if you get them to ask her what her ring size is in casual conversation. If you have one of her rings, you could also ask a friend to try it on and if it fits, they’re likely the same ring size.
Take One Of Her Rings To A Jeweller
“What size is her ring finger?” I’m sure jewellers ask this all the time, so if you want to be absolutely sure, why not take a ring of hers (ideally one that’s worn on the same finger as the one you want to buy her, remember) to your local jeweller and ask them to measure it? This way you can be certain that you’ve got it right.
Re-Size The Ring After She’s Tried It On
If getting the perfect fit is not something you’re too worried about beforehand, you can always give the ring as a gift and get it resized afterwards at your local jeweller. This way you can be sure that once you’ve resized it, the fit will be absolutely perfect. The average ring size in the US is a size 7 and most rings can be sized up or down one or two sizes without much trouble.
Just Ask Her!
Maybe you want this gift to be perfect the first time she tries it on and are actually more worried about the fit than it being a secret? In which case, why not just ask her? She still won’t know what gemstone or design you’ve bought her and it’ll be something to look forward to when you finally hand the present over! If you ask way in advance, she may even have forgotten that you were going to buy her a ring.
Ask For Next Time
If you really want to keep the gift a secret but just aren't able to find out her ring size this time, why not buy her an alternative piece of jewellery? We have an amazing selection of earrings, pendants and necklaces available, and when you hand the gift over you could always cheekily ask, "If you wanted a matching ring for these, what size would I need to buy?"
Remember to take a look at our Ring Sizing page for more information, or get in touch with us, we’ll be only too happy to help.
