Method 2: Pretend To Shop For Someone Else
If you’re up for the acting challenge, pretend that you want to buy a ring for someone else and ask her for help. Whether it’s your sister, grandmother, aunt, or mom, picking someone whose hands closely match hers should be fine. This could also be a great way to gauge her style, especially if you ask her for advice on color and other design elements. Here are a few tactics you can apply to find her ring size:
1. Casually ask her if she knows her own ring size. As you browse for rings, say your version of, “I don’t know what ring size my mom wears. Do you know yours? I could use you as a reference.” Make sure this feels like a natural part of the conversation.
2. Ask her to try on rings. Pay attention to which size fits her best. If needed, take a solo trip to the store ahead of time to familiarize yourself with where and how sizes are listed.
3. Bring her a ring for approval. If visiting a store together is not possible, try purchasing an inexpensive ring you think would fit her. Casually ask her to try it on to make sure it “looks good” before you gift it to your mom. Pay close attention to the fit.
