You have been waiting for this moment. She has been waiting for this moment. You shake with excitement as you dip down on one knee. You ask her the question, and you open the box. She shouts “Yes,” and you slip the engagement ring on her finger. But, wait – the ring does not fit. It’s too small! Do not let this happen to you by making sure that you know how to get the right size engagement ring in Sunrise. 

Consider Finger Shape When Buying an Engagement Ring in Sunrise

Fingers come in many different shapes and sizes. Some fingers are tapered, while other fingers have prominent knuckles. For tapered fingers, you will want a very close fit while with a finger with prominent knuckles you may need to add size beads. Next time you are holding your partner’s hand, notice what finger shape they have. 

If Measuring, Consider Conditions

Fingers naturally change size and shape slightly depending on the conditions. For example, fingers usually swell in warm weather. They may also swell as a result of eating salt or drinking alcohol. Make sure to measure the finger near the middle of the day, at room temperature, and when body temperature is average. 

There are a few options for you if you can directly measure your partner’s finger. You can use a piece of paper or  string to see how many millimeters around their ring finger is. There are a number of printable ring sizers online.

Borrow a Ring

If you want to find out your partner’s ring size without them knowing, you may want to borrow or trace one of their rings that you know fits on their ring finger. Be careful with this, since you don’t want to accidentally measure the wrong ring or measure a ring that does not fit them very well. 

Talk to Friends or Family

If you are not sure what to do, you may consider asking a trusted friend or family member to help you with some of the above options.
