Her family has been supportive yet somewhat unhelpful. not that they dont want to help.. but no one knows my girlfriends ring size.. she never wears rings... How can I buy the right ring without her knowing what I'm planning?
she drops hints about marriage so i figure in about 3 to 4 months i will propose. once i get a ring and some payments on it. :)

Awww nice :)
Well okay, you've talked about this so the whole thing won't be a total surprise (the proposal will but not the marriage thing). One thing you should note is her jewellery style, like if she doesn't wear a lot of it you should get a simple solitaire ring. Or if you know she likes silvery metals (platinum, white gold, palladium) instead of yellow gold. Stuff like that. Jewellery sales people can help you with all that.
As for the size, it's better to go bigger. It's very hard to resize rings that are too small and it weakens the metal (they actually just stretch it). See if she has any rings in her jewellery box somewhere and take it with you when you are ready to buy the ring - have that ring measured and then buy the same size. You don't have to spend thousands of dollars to get a good quality ring, either.
Happy shopping! Good luck to you :)0
