    Just go with a 6, that’s a common size. If it’s too big or too small she can have it sized locally. It’s not a big deal. But go bigger that way she can wear it the day of. Also buy some of those rubber ring snuggies just in case. Some jewelry stores offer same day sizing, just a thought.

    Do you know about how much she weights? I am 5 feet and weight 100 lbs…my ring finger size is 4 3/4, however my knuckles are a little bigger, so I wear a 5. Is there a way you could have a friend get her someplace to get her sized? Good luck!

    enlist a friend to help you. Have them go shopping and the friend make her try on costumey jewelry or something and then let you know what sizes she had to try on.

    Get the larger size, and purchase those plastic ring snuggies so she can wear day of to show off to her friends. It would be much worse to not be able to get it on than have it too big! 

    I’m a size 4, but wore a size 8 with two of those snuggies on for a month before having it sized.

    I’m very petite at 5’1 113lb.. My fiancé got me a 7 and I was actually a 4 I think? Better to be bigger than Smaller! I agree with Mrscassie about the snuggie things! Most places do size QuicklY.  Our jeweler does all work in shop so it took them 15 minutes to size mine! Gorgeous ring btw!

    If you want to keep it a surprise, I agree with sneaking out one of her rings that you know fits, and then having the jeweler use it to figure out what her size is. 

    I think if you’ve seen her jewelry picks and her pinterest pins, you can probably reasonably deduce an e-ring that she’d like. The stand-in is a nice idea too though.

    There is no way you’re going to be able to tell based on weight and height or shoe size. I did the shoe size thing and came up with 7.25 and I am significantly larger in both height (5’5) and weight (170) than Soon2bmrs1:  but my promise ring band is a 5.5 and my ering is a 4.5 or 5, I can’t remember. The only advice I can think of is that it is better to go larger than smaller because at least she be able to take a couple of picture first if she need to get it resized. P.S.- that is a really pretty ring!

    It’s going to be very hard to guess. Im about 5’2″ tall, a littible less than 100lb and I wear a size 3.5 ring. I also have an iphone 5 and honestly I dont think anyone can guess her finger size by photos. My husband bought a size 5 ring and we resized twice.

    You can always proposed to her with a loose diamond, a stand in ring or an empty box.

    Have her mom try a ring sizer on her  for you, or friend.

    You really can’t tell by height/ weight/ pictures. My best friend is the same height as me and within 15 lbs of my weight and I wear a size 5 while she wears a size 8. I agree with whoever said you should just creepily measure her finger while she’s sleeping, or you could just ask her because surely you’ve talked about engagement before.

    That said, It would be better to get it too big than too small. I wore my ring a half size too big for over a month, and just bought a $5 band from claires to wear in front of it so it wouldn’t fall off until I could get it sized.
