With our tips you will be successful in ring selection!
You can ask a friend of your partner. She may even know the ring size right off the bat, or she can ask your bride-to-be unobtrusively in an upcoming conversation. Of course, a person's fingers are not all the same size and everyone has fingers of different thicknesses. Each person also has a dominant hand.
In left-handers, the muscles of the left hand are more pronounced, which can lead to the individual fingers also being somewhat thicker. The weather can also play a role, as our limbs swell slightly in the heat. If it is winter, they are often a little thinner. Whether you measure in the morning or evening also plays a role. In the evening, the fingers are thicker because the hands are strained during the day and thus the blood circulates.
However, the most important thing is not whether it is summer or winter, evening or morning, but how thick the corresponding knuckle of the finger. If the ring does not fit over the knuckle, the rest does not matter. If you need help measuring the appropriate ring size, we can help you in our guide.
Men usually do not like to go shopping with their girlfriend. However, if you are planning your engagement and the ring purchase is imminent, it would make sense to go on a shopping spree with your sweetheart more often. Women rave more often consciously but also unconsciously in the presence of their beloved of rings and especially engagement rings. So the motto is: prick up your ears and listen carefully!
But even here there is the possibility to get advice from your mother-in-law, sister or best friend to find the right ring. You can also look at what rings your loved one likes to wear in everyday life to have a starting point.
Another factor could be the skin type. Is she more of a light or dark type? The ring should support the skin type, not oppose it. Does she have a favorite color that can be incorporated into the ring? According to a US study, you can gauge how likely a woman is to prefer a particular design direction by her clothing style.
For the more classically elegant and the trend-consciously flamboyant women, the trend went in the same direction: they preferred to select narrow rings made of white gold with larger diamonds. However, women who follow a casual, uncomplicated lifestyle chose wider models with smaller, more inconspicuous diamonds.
