I got engaged 2 weeks ago while on a hiking trip in Patagonia with my now-fiance! Because we were traveling and hiking, he proposed with a simple but pretty silver band (which I love and hope to use as my wedding band). My “real” ering (with a moissanite stone) has already been designed and is almost ready to be shipped! The problem is I do not know my ring size. The jeweler offers a free ring size adjustment so before they ship it from across the country, I want to make sure it fits!
How do I get my ring sized? Can I just walk into a jewelry store I don’t intend to buy from and ask for them to measure my ring size? I feel guilty doing that – but maybe it’s normal? Or, can you trust ring sizing charts online?
My other question is – what time of day should I measure my finger? I hear fingers can swell a little during the day, so I was thinking I should measure during the afternoon.
Thank you for your help!

Yep you can walk into a jewelry store and just ask if they could tell you what size you are. I knew I was gunna buy a rando ring off Etsy that was on sale and just wanted to check. You can just look at some things and pretend like you’re looking if it makes you feel less awkward!

Any jewelry store will be able to meausre your ring size. You can also buy a set of ring sizers from amazon pretty cheaply. My suggestion is, one you get sized, is to buy an inexpensive ring (like a $20 cocktail ring from amazon) in that size and wear it around for a bit to make sure it’s right – fingers swell over the course of a day, with your menstrual cycle, the temperature, and even how much salt you’ve consumed. You don’t want to get measured as a 5 and turn out to actually wear more of a 5.5 or 6 but occasionally swelling to a 7!
