How to secretly measure jewellery sizes

That time of year is coming again and many of us will buy a ring or a bracelet for our loved ones this year. The burning question, however, is this – will it fit? Here’s a few tips on secretly measuring them to keep it a surprise come Christmas morning.

Get ahead of the game

Ask them if you can take their measurements outright – just do it in advance. The more time between asking and receiving, the better, giving them plenty of time to forget. Do it in a busy moment and tell them it’s for a school project or that your friend is doing a research paper on the correlation between age and wrist size. If it’s for a ring, be sure to pick a specific finger, preferably one you’ve seen them wear rings on before to ensure that your gift will be enjoyed to the fullest.

Compare wrist and hand sizes

Sit down for a coffee with your bestie and ask them to compare their hand size to yours. Though this won’t give you an exact number, you’ll be able to see if they require bigger or smaller sizes than you. It may even lead smoothly into a conversation about specific sizes!

Borrow their favourite jewellery and measure it

This is a surefire way to get an accurate measurement for your jewellery. Admire what they’re wearing and ask if you can borrow it for a particular event. Take a piece of string and coil it carefully around the inside of a ring or bangle, or if measuring a bracelet open it up and lay it along a ruler. If you are short for time, draw around the inside with a pen on some paper and measure it later.

Enlist the help of others

Ask a mutual friend to get them alone and ask them what size jewellery they wear. Get your friend to take note then pass the information to you. Your special someone might be suspicious but they’ll be looking in completely the wrong direction, saving the surprise for when you give it to them! You could also prepare a group of friends for this task and have everyone discuss their jewellery sizes, making it look like a normal, everyday conversation.

Buy adjustable

Failing all else, keep your back covered by finding a beautiful piece of adjustable jewellery for your loved one. This takes out all the guess work and it’s perfect for a long distance friend who you don’t get the chance to see every day and probe with questions. A lot of adjustable jewellery designs nowadays use this to their advantage, creating beautifully fluid and ergonomic designs that will leave them breathless. They will result in the perfect fit no matter the size, making for comfortable jewellery that she will never want to take off.

 

We hope this helped! Don’t forget to look outside the box when asking people for their ring sizes (“let’s make plaster molds of our hands!”) and most of all stay calm. Remember that even if they find out what you’re buying them, they will still love it to pieces as soon as they see it.

The Pearl Edit

There are few things as timeless as pearls. They suit any style, adapt to every situation and always bring a dash of luxury however you choose to wear them. They are the Marilyn Monroe of the jewellery world – iconic and undying. Whether you like your pearls chunky and individual or lined up neatly on a string, here are a few of our picks and how we would style them.

Three Pearls Ear Threads gold plated

Style with pale creams and ivories, crepe and chiffon.

The Art of Giving

No matter how far you look back gift giving has been a cornerstone for human connection.

Ever since the cave days we’ve gifted for much the same reasons as we give today – to share a moment of compassion, and to show our loved ones that we care and appreciate them for just being them. For millennia gifts have been bestowed to express emotion, gratitude and to strengthen relationships. They are symbolic of both the giver and the receiver, of the memories we have together and all the crazy things we’ve done. They let our friends know that we noticed them staring at those gorgeous earrings, and that more than simply marking the occasion, we truly, deeply care for them.

So, with no further ado, how to give the perfect gift.
