First of all, find out her ring size. However, you don’t want to make it obvious what you’re up to, so you’ll have to use some tact. Moreover, most engagement rings can be resized if necessary, but it would be nice to get it right the first time.
The easiest way is to borrow one of the rings she already owns or a fitted glove and bring it to the jeweler. As a rule, they’ll be able to tell you right away. Failing that, get creative! And next time you hold her hand make a mental note of the size of her ring finger and draw it on a piece of paper as soon as you can. Otherwise, if that doesn’t work, you should call her mother 🙂
If all else fails, the average size is 6 to 6.5. Go with that and cross your fingers. Next, you have to plan a budget. The days of “minimum 2 week’s salary” are long gone for most, so be realistic with what you spend. In general, most brides would rather enjoy a more glamorous honeymoon or a larger down payment for your first home over a slightly bigger diamond.
