There are certain things in life that you just can’t go wrong with. Things like pizza, a dog’s face and, of course, the perfect engagement ring.
Trying to find the right ring for that special someone can be a nerve-wracking experience. Will she like it? Is it too much or too little? Will you be able to afford it? And most importantly, will she say “yes”?
When you are ready to buy an engagement ring, you will want to know the correct ring size. There’s nothing worse than buying a beautiful ring and not being able to wear it because it doesn’t fit. Here are some tips on how to find the perfect fit for your loved one:
- Get measured
It’s important that you get your finger sized correctly. You can do this by visiting a jeweler or even doing it yourself with a DIY ring size chart. This will ensure that your ring fits properly.
- Make sure she is not wearing any rings during measurements
This seems like common sense, but it is important that she not wear any rings or loose-fitting bracelets when you measure her finger. This will ensure an accurate reading.
- Make sure she stays still while being measured
It may take more than one tries to get an accurate measurement. If she moves around during each attempt at measuring her finger, it could cause the tape measure to slip and give you an incorrect result.
- Measure when your loved one is relaxed
It is very important to measure your loved one’s finger while she or he is relaxed. If nervousness causes a muscle spasm in their finger, then they might end up with an inaccurate measurement.
- Get your loved one’s hand warm
Before measuring her or his finger, make sure that her or his hand is warm enough for an accurate reading. Cold hands make smaller fingers look even smaller than usual.
- Consider loose fitting rings
If you have very tiny fingers, think about getting a looser fitting band for your engagement ring. When you’re shopping for wedding bands, you may want to go for a slightly larger size so your finger can swell during pregnancy without the band being too tight.
- Try on rings at different times of the day
Your hands can swell and shrink depending on the time of day, so try on rings before making a purchase. This way you’ll know if they’ll still fit when they’re new and later on down the road. Use your finger size chart to calculate whether or not the ring is too small or too big.
The most important thing to keep in mind about ring size charts is that it is normal to be slightly uncomfortable as your fingers adjust to the feel of a new ring. Try not to get too hung up on what the paper tells you, and focus instead on how your finger feels after a few days and weeks—it will likely change slightly over time.
