Mine looked at my other rings, not realizing the other rings were a) too big and b) were worn on hands/fingers that were larger than my ring finger. He took my rings and noticed how far down they went on his finger.  He got it right in that he matched it up to what I had!  But alas, still too big.  But an A+ for effort.

Maybe just tell him your ring size?

Apparently there’s an app now where you can lay a ring you already have on it and it will tell you the size.

I never was a ring wearer, so the only ones I had were sentimental/family rings, half of which were sized incorrectly (seriously, I have rings in sizes 6-10 in my jewelry box). He just bought the ring (I didn’t know he was even ring shopping) and when he proposed made a comment that we would have to get it sized. Turns out, it fit perfectly as is. It was clearly meant to be my ring 🙂

Mine tried to subtly ask/figure it out, so I just flat out told hm. Lol. Still a little too big, because I too was basing it off other rings and guesstimating, but only by 1/2 a size.

MissTravelbug:  Just be careful with resizing, especially if you end up with a ring that has a lot of pave and you need to size down. I think it’s in your best interest to get into a jewelry store and get yourself sized… and tell him if it isn’t too late. I’d be bummed if I had a beautiful proposal with a beautiful ring and then I coudln’t wear it because it would need to be sent in for sizing.

He flat out asked me one day, a few weeks after we moved in together. I told him the size I thought I had been in the past, but I don’t currently own any rings (still waiting for THE ring), so I couldn’t check and he couldn’t sneak one out of my jewelry box. A while after that we went ring shopping together and I got my finger sized. Turns out I was 1/2 a size off, so I’m glad we checked.

Mine used a ring that I wear often and snuck it to the jeweler when I wasn’t wearing it.  I was surprised at how perfectly my ering fit because the other is a RHR and a little big on my left hand.

He asked and we had the ring sized after. One sizing was included.

My boyfriend discovered mine on our first date.  I was showing him a ring I always wore and told him that it was too big more me now and I had to make it a right hand ring since it didn’t fit on my left anymore.  He asked to look at it but it has hands that open up to reveal a heart, so I thought he just wanted to look at that aspect of it.  Anyway, he tried it on his finger gauged where it hit on his finger, then thought my ring would need to be just slightly smaller than where it hit on his finger, and picked a size down.  So then when he bought me a ring as a gift 3 months later, he remembered exactly where my ring fit his finger and picked it out from there.  I wish I could have been there to see him trying rings on his finger, but he managed to get my size exactly right.

My ring size happens to be the same as my FI’s pinky finger lol. He basically went off that and then to be super sure he swiped one if my rings! My ring fit perfectly… Anytime I have to take off my e-ring I put it on his pinky so I don’t forget it lol.
