Let’s start at the beginning, my friend. Your first covert mission is to stealthy find a way to figure out your gal’s ring size. Here are three (hopefully!) foolproof tips to get you on your way.

  1. For Captain Obvious: steal a ring.
    While she’s away, sneak into her jewelry box and pickpocket a ring she’s not going to miss. Keep in mind: your engagement ring sits on your sweetheart’s left finger, so if your hijacking one that she normally wears on her right, consider stepping down a half-size.
  2. For the Resourceful One: turn to the internet.
    Our good friends at Zales have taken the guesswork out of ring sizing with this printable chart. It’s as simple as placing the ring on top of each circle until you find the perfect match. A child could complete this task. Need we say more
  3. For the Craftsman: make an impression.
    Now, this may require a bit more skill on your part, but several jewelers have actually recommended making an impression of the ring with a bar of soap. Wet the bar of soap, press the ring firmly into the bar, and save the soap in a plastic sandwich bag. Off you go to present your latest masterpiece to the jeweler, who can determine her ring size from there.

You are now on your way to becoming an engaged man! Keep checking back for more tips when it comes to popping the question.
