How to find out her ring finger. Size tips and myths

When it comes to planning a proposal, finding out your future spouse's finger size can sometimes be challenging, especially if you want to keep the details a surprise. With this post, Novita provides a variety of solutions and options available for such situations.


This option is better suited to situations in which she already knows or if it is a semi-surprise. You can simply visit a local jewellery store in cities where our showrooms are not yet located. The finger can be measured accurately, but if there is a showroom in your area or you are able to travel, please stop by to see us, as this is the best solution.

If you cannot visit a jewellery store or any of our showrooms, you may order our free ring sizer online.

TIP: Whether you use our free ring sizer or a third-party one, make sure it fits tight. A good engagement ring should fit tightly and be difficult to take off.


As part of our commitment to making every proposal joyful and worry-free, we offer one free resizing with each engagement ring purchase.

Take the guesswork out of the equation and let our experts handle the heavy lifting.

If you have photos of your future fiancée, please send them to us. Ideally, the photos should include her hands. The experienced member of our team will be able to estimate the suitable ring size, which we must stress is not an easy task. Nevertheless, after years of experience, our team became proficient at it. The proposal team will always suggest a slightly bigger size despite their expertise to ensure it fits on the proposal day. The ring can be resized after the big day if it still feels too loose.


This may not be the best method, but it'll give you an idea of what you can expect. If you can, try getting one of the rings she wears, but make sure it is not worn on the thumb or pinky. Here is a link that will allow you to download our ring sizer and measure the ring size. It is worth noting that the dominant hand usually fits one size bigger. Although this method isn't the most reliable, it still provides you with an approximation you can work with.

TIP: Make sure you buy one size larger than you believe her finger size is. You could be in for quite an unpleasant surprise on the day of your proposal when you find out that the ring only fits her up to the knuckle. In addition, engagement rings that seem out of place are less likely to be Instagrammed and shown off to friends and family.

ONE LAST TIP:   If there are diamonds on the band of the ring, it is generally not possible to resize it more than two sizes up or down. Resizing beyond two sizes is possible, but it complicates the process and generates additional costs in labour and material. As a general rule, resizing down is more manageable than resizing up.
