How to measure your ring size?

Finding the perfect ring size can be a challenge when planning a surprise. To maintain the element of surprise, creativity is key. We've compiled a list of four methods to help you determine the correct ring size. Keep reading for our expert advice on keeping the secret.

Use an existing ring to measure

To determine the correct ring size, carefully measure the inside diameter of the existing ring using a ruler or calliper. Convert this measurement to millimetres and refer to our Valquère ring size chart to find the corresponding Valquère ring size based on the diameter measurement.

Convert international ring sizes

If you are familiar with ring sizes in a different country or measuring system than the one Valquère uses, take a look at our comparative table for assistance, this should help you find the appropriate ring size.

Use a paper ring sizer

Similar to a synthetic ring sizer, it helps you determine the correct ring size. Ensure that you print the sizer in the appropriate scale for accurate results. This technique is reliable if the scaling is correct.

How can you keep it a surprise?

How to measure without her knowing

To secretly get her ring size, creativity is a must. Try asking people close to her such as her relatives (mother or sister) or her best friend to find out what her size might be. But be careful, only ask people you know can keep it a secret.

If you want to use an existing ring in order to measure her size, make sure you pick a ring that she wears on the correct finger. The ring you choose to measure should fit perfectly and be the right thickness. Don’t forget to put the ring back where you found it, you don’t want to make her suspicious.

If you want to be 100% sure and measure her finger, you can use our paper- or synthetic sizer and even a piece of string. You could consider measuring the circumference of her ring finger while she is sleeping.


52 is the average ring size

Most women typically have a ring size ranging from 49 to 56. The ring should fit tight enough so that the risk of falling off is slim to none. At Valquère, we understand the significance of finding the perfect balance between security and comfort.

Measure multiple times

We recommended measuring the size multiple times, up to three or four instances. Please take into account that the size may differ based on various factors such as time of day, weather conditions, and temperature fluctuations. Note that fingers tend to be smaller in colder climates (e.g., winter) and may experience slight swelling in warmer conditions (e.g., summer, early morning, post-glove usage).

When in doubt go bigger

If you are not sure of the size, we recommend purchasing a bigger size. This way, the ring will at least be able to go around her finger when proposing.

Adjust afterwards

Don’t worry about adjusting, most rings can be adjusted afterwards when the ring size is too large or too small after purchase. If adjusting is not possible due to the risk of damaging the quality, a new ring will have to in order to fit our quality standards. The price depends on the number of sizes and design of the ring.

Think about the ring design

For a comfortable fit, ensure that a wider ring is slightly larger to avoid any tightness or pinching sensation. Contact us personally for expert advice on very wide rings. We're here to help you find the perfect fit.

Attention for the knuckle

Considering that the base of your finger is often smaller than your knuckle, measuring both the base and knuckle separately is crucial. The next step is to select a size in between those two measurements. Doing it this way will allow her to slide the ring over her knuckle but still fit comfortably around the base of her finger.

Information necklace- and bracelet sizes

Valquère offers a standard chain lengths for bracelets and necklaces. If you are interested in another length, please contact us via [email protected] or via telephone.


Valquère understands that selecting the correct ring size is the client's responsibility. While we strive to provide various resources to assist you in determining the right size, the final decision rests solely with the client. Finding the perfect ring size is a deeply personal matter that can only be determined by the person wearing it. Hence, Valquère cannot be held accountable for any inaccuracies in the measurement of the client's ring size. We value your satisfaction and are here to assist you in any way possible.
