HOW TO FIND OUT HER RING SIZE

This is actually pretty simple. Just ‘borrow’ one of the rings she already wears and you can use it as a guide. Slip it over your finger and mark with a pen where it falls. If she’s not already a ring wearer you might enlist a friend of hers to find out. If you’re really at a loss consider that the average woman’s ring size is a 6. If you have to guess, go a little larger since it’s easier to resize down than up!

HOW TO FIGURE OUT WHAT STYLE OF RING TO BUY

You may not have paid too close attention to the jewelry she already wears, but now it’s time to really look! Finding the perfect style of engagement ring to pop the question with is pretty important. She’s going to be wearing it for the rest of her life! What color of metal does she usually go for is always a good place to start. Think about her overall style, is she more vintage or more modern? Vintage girls might like something emerald cut or pear-shaped while more modern girls may prefer a princess cut or something classically round. If she’s super fashionable you might take a look at what type of ring her favorite style celebrities are wearing.

If you’re still having trouble then it’s definitely a good idea to involve another woman that’s she really close with. Chances are, she’s already talked about it to her!
