Finding Your Partner’s Ring Size
Our experts at Grown Brilliance are often asked how they can find the right ring size for their partner without letting them know. Here are a few tricks and tips to use!
If you wish to keep your proposal a surprise, but still want to find the right ring size, you can ask your significant other in a smooth way. You can pretend to be buying a ring for your niece/mother/sister/aunt or anyone else. Casually ask for her ring size for reference!
Ask Their friends
This is the safest way to find out your partner’s right ring size. Friends know the best and have the perfect insight! Even if the friend doesn’t know directly, he or she can be the one to ask your partner.
Borrow one of their rings
Snag one of their rings for a day! Make sure that you take one which your significant other wears on the same finger.
Trace the Ring on Paper
Place their ring on a piece of paper and trace a circle on the inside and outside of the ring. Repeat the process to ensure that your ring traces look consistent. It’s easy to understand the diameter of their ring from your drawing!

How to Care for your Engagement Ring
It goes without saying that your engagement ring is an important piece of jewelry, and you never want anything to happen to it. Proper care of your ring is extremely important since it’s something that will stay with you for a lifetime. Here are a few recommendations to help you keep your engagement ring as good as new.
Get Regular Check-Ups
You should get your ring professionally checked from time to time. Wearing your ring every day can cause stones to get loose or for the metal to bend. It is important that the prongs are securely holding the diamond together to ensure that the precious diamonds don’t fall out.
You can clean your lab grown diamond jewelry the same way that you do most of your fine jewelry. One simple method is to use a little dish soap and warm water and gently scrub your jewelry with a soft cloth or soft bristle tooth brush. Rinse it clean and then let it dry on a soft cloth. Another options is to use an ultrasonic jewelry cleaner. If you need more professional cleaning or repairs, please contact us.
Refresh Metal Setting
Over time, the metal on your ring can get tarnished due to moisture and oxygen coming into contact with it. If this happens you can have the ring professionally re-polished. If this is something you would like to do, please contact us.
Remove Ring During Heavy Activities
Doing heavy activities such as gardening, moving furniture, lifting weights, and manual labor could cause your engagement ring to get damaged. It is always best to remove your ring before you do such activities.
