However, when the proposal is supposed to be a surprise as most proposals are, and you’re unsure about the size of your partners ring finger, there are various ways you secretly figure it out. Following are few of your options:

Take her Ring to a Jeweller

Trace A Ring

Take one of her rings and place it on a white paper and then draw a circle on the inside and outside of the ring. You need to ensure that your ring traces look consistent. A jeweller can examine the diameter of her ring size from the sketch you give.

Ask Her Friend
