Popping the question is stressful enough without the worry of whether the ring will fit—but if you're surprising her with the proposal, it's a risk you take. Luckily, it's perfectly normal—and not painstakingly difficult—to resize a ring after the fact. Here are some engagement ring resizing tips to keep in mind.
First and foremost, not knowing her ring size isn't the end of the world. If you're unsure about accurately sizing the ring for your partner but still want to keep the proposal a surprise, there are a handful of ways you can get your partner's ring size without asking. If you do end up guessing, it's better to size up to ensure your partner can fit the ring on after the proposal. Sizing down versus up isn't significantly more difficult because either way, resizing is a quick and easy fix. Even if you knew her ring size, it's very common to need even a small resize after the proposal.
As for resizing itself, it's a fairly straightforward process. If you’re in New York City, you can arrange to drop off our Ring Concierge ring directly with your consultant during our office hours. We ask for one business week to resize your ring, so if you drop it on a Monday, you can pick it up on a Friday. There is no production over the weekend so if it’s dropped on a Thursday, it will be in production for two extra days.
