The Ultimate Guide to Finding Your Partner's

Ring Size for a
Surprise Proposal

Planning a surprise proposal is an exciting and sometimes nerve-wracking experience. One of the key elements to get right is the ring size. Too big, and it might slip off; too small, and it won't go on at all. But fear not love-struck planners—there are clever ways to discreetly determine your partner's ring size without ruining the surprise.

Sneaky Strategies to Discover the Perfect Fit

1. Borrow a Ring

If your partner wears rings, especially on the ring finger of the left hand, this is the simplest and most effective method. Bring their ring to Tapper’s and we’ll help you to find the perfect size. Just make sure that you know what finger they wear the ring on so that our experts can help you to determine a size.

2. Trace a Ring

If you're worried about your partner noticing a missing ring, try tracing the inner and outer circumference of their ring on a piece of paper. The jewelers at Tapper’s can use this information to help you select the perfect ring size.

3. Ask for Help

Enlist the help of friends or family. They can ask your partner about ring sizes in a casual, non-suspicious way. Alternatively, a friend could take your partner out to try on rings "for fun" and note the sizes. Another good person to ask is the mom of your significant other. Trust us, moms know everything!

4. Use a Ring Sizer

If you are not able to get your hands on one of your partner's rings for even a short time, you can use a ring sizing tool to measure it at home. Tapper’s offers these free of charge. Simple fill out the form using this LINK or stop in to any of our locations.

5. Casual Conversation

Sometimes, the best way is the most straightforward. Bring up the topic of rings and ring sizes casually. You might talk about a friend’s engagement ring or browse rings online together. Pay attention to any mention of their size preferences.

Why Accuracy Matters

Tapper’s has you Covered

Getting the ring size right is crucial for the moment when you propose. An ill-fitting ring can take away from the magical experience. If the ring is too tight, it won't go on at all, and if it's too loose, you risk it falling off and getting lost. However, if you are not 100% sure on the ring size it is best to go a little larger so that you can ensure it will fit during your proposal. At Tapper’s, we provide a free first sizing* for all engagement rings purchased from us, so no need to worry if the size is not perfect.
Finding your partner's ring size for a surprise proposal doesn't have to be a daunting task. With a bit of creativity and the right tools, you can ensure that the ring fits perfectly, adding to the joy and excitement of your special moment. And remember, Tapper's always here to help you, ensuring that your proposal goes off without a hitch. Happy proposing!
