Deciding to ask the woman you love is a big step and many times men will think up the most romantic way possible to present her an engagement ring and ask the question. Of course nothing will spoil this romantic atmosphere quicker than diamond engagement rings that do not fit.
But if you purchase the ring at the jewellery store without your future fiancé, just how do you make sure you are buying a ring that will fit? The fit does not have to be perfect but it will need to go onto her finger and cannot be too loose either or your proposal will just not be perfect.
If a gentleman is lucky she will have a ring in her jewellery box that does fit and this can be used as a guide for buying that engagement ring. The inside of this ring can be traced onto paper for a guide the jeweller can use.
Another idea is to use a piece of string to get her finger size while she is taking a nap. While others have used costume jewellery to get the closest estimate on what size to get that diamond engagement ring.
While the ring does not have to fit exactly for the day you propose since it can be resized later to exactly what she needs. You do want to make sure the ring you will be down on your knee with is as close as possible for the most romantic proposal.
