I’m considering proposing to Boyfriend or Best Friend or proposing right after he proposes to me but in any case I want to be prepared but want it to be a surprise for him. He has never worn jewelry so I have no way of knowing his ring size… he definitely has bigger hands than I do, but that isn’t saying much. What size ring should I get knowing I need to get it sized??
Also I love this ring but can’t tell if its meant to be a men’s ring… do you think this is a men’s band?

Thank you for your help!!

@classyashley: I think it depends on if your guy likes stones. Mine would not like it at all, he just likes plain, maybe hammered, dark metal. As far as ring size (and esp if it’s titanium) I am not sure if those rings can be resized easier, so I would not just guess.

Mine wouldnt like the stone either…so maybe go more plain…so if your Boyfriend or Best Friend is anything like my husband then measure his finger when he is sleeping like the dead…i have painted my husbands toenails when he was sleeping once because he pissed me off before he went to bed 🙂

it looks like a guys ring to me.
if your bf has never worn jewellery, he may prefer something a bit more plain but interesting. like hammered or bark.

I have heard that your ring size is close to your shoe size…I can’t say for sure for everyone, but everyone I have asked this has been true.

@tobikay: I’m a jeweler asnd frequently discuss this with customers, and while it’s true sometimes, it’s definitely an old wives’ tale. 🙂 (My ring size is 6… Shoe size is 11!)
OP… The most common gent’s ring sizes are 9 and 10. So those are a good bet. If you really have no idea about his size, make sure you get him a ring that’s capable of significant resizing – sterling, or a lightweight gold band. The trendy metals can’t be sized, although they might let you do an exchange!

@GelaMac: hahaha I love you.
I agree with PP, my Fiance wouldn’t have liked that. He likes dark metals or the manly look. Whatever that is.

@tonights: oooo that second part is good advice. Whatever you do, do not get titantium! I made that mistake and had to buy Fiance a whole new ring.
