It can always be resied after you propose, that is not a big issue. Blindfolding her to try it on is just…odd

Please propose to her before you leave. Don’t make her wait if you can help it.

How much is it to resize? It would be worth paying it instead of teasing her for a month.

My man took me to the jewelry store to find the ring I wanted before he proposed. The ring he chose I honestly would have gagged over it. It wasn’t my type of ring. It’s best she picks the ring she wants. It’ll be a lot easier on your part. My ring didn’t fit on my finger so that shouldn’t be a problem. 

What you can do too is propose with the ring that you chose. Don’t resize. After the proposal you take your time with her at the jewelry store and let her pick out the ring. You tell her in advance that the ring you propose will not be final. 

Congrats you chose the gal you want to spend the rest your life with 😀

ohhssi:  Take her to a shop and tell her you want to get her finger sized. That way she doesn’t know you have the ring and you know what size she is.

ohhssi:  buy one of those ring sizes and size one of her rings while she’s sleeping. Dont blindfold her. Don’t have her try it on. its not too expensive to have it resized if needed

Keep it a surprise.

You could get it resized at a local jeweler

Take her to a jewelry store and have them measure her size. If she doesn’t know you have the ring, do not blind fold her and then make her wait for weeks/months. Not cool.

ohhssi:  No. It took the jeweller about twenty minutes to resize my ring. Suprise her!
