Or is this completely rude/annoying/inappropriate if I’m not planning on ordering from them.
I’m just going to the mall tonight and thought it would be easy to just stop in and get my finger sized. We will be ordering our rings online.

Yes they will, just don’t mention that you are buying somewhere else. Say you are browsing and pointing your boyfriend in the direction of what sort of ring you want.

yep! you can always act like you’re looking and then they’ll ask you your size, you’ll tell them you don’t know and they’ll measure you. make a mental note, then say you’re looking for platinum or something (they usually don’t carry it or have a small collection) then thank them and leave

Yep. I agree with
They will try to sell you but stay strong. 🙂 Congrats by the way on looking!

Shouldn’t be a problem. I got my finger sized at a jewelry store in an outlet mall while I was browsing with my mom. Of course, I don’t think the lady did the best job because the size 5 ring I ended up getting was way too tight in the summertime, so I had it sized up to a 5.5.

I’m looking for a rose gold wedding band, which happens to be impossible to find in stores- and I don’t know my ring size because the jeweler just guestimated for my engagement ring and it turned out perfect- haha.
Maybe I should say platinum…because they’ll just send me away if I say rose gold.

Just a quick observation – when I went to kays to ask a question with someone I had my finger sized and they said I was a 6.5 (which is what I buy in costume rings) and their 6.5 fit perfectly, but at two of the fine jewelers in town they had me at a 4.75. I am not sure what the difference is, but something you may want to be aware of.

Yep! I actually got mine sized with my fiance at JCPenney’s, and they did not pressure us at all. I’d try there before Zale’s or Kay’s.

@tksjewelry: That’s really weird- I know I have small fingers and am planning to order from a higher end store. I’m pretty sure I’m between a 4-5 but I want to be sure before I order and I can’t go to their brick and mortar stores because the closest one is 3 hours away and they wouldn’t have the ring anyway.
I do know all costume rings from target and such are huge on me and they are usually size 7s.
Maybe I should just wait until I go back home for a weekend…

Yes they will do it!! I would, afterall you need to know what size finger you are!! lol If you have a ring that fits your finger perfectly you can also bring that and match the size to let you know what the size of that ring is.

I did that and the lady acted like a complete turd because she sensed that I wasn’t buying from them. When I went to get sized a second time, per FI’s request, I went to an independent jeweler and they were really kind.

I pretended that I was looking for ring options for SO (which was SEMI true) and had them take down all the information of the one I ‘liked’ and my ring size 🙂
I did that twice..just to be sure

If I need an opinion or anything, I just say I am there to consider my options for a wedding band. Usually I am, but still.

Yep, like PP’s said just act like you’re looking to buy. I knew my ring size from resizing my ering, but we ordered FI’s band online & that’s how we found out his size & metal preference.
