We were wondering how these ladies were picking out their rings for their lucky gents (or lady loves), and we were surprised that there wasn’t that much information. So we gleaned several men’s magazines to find the craftiest, sneakiest, and just-plain silly strategies, men have resorted to finding their partners’ ring sizes. Some include just happening to go into jewelry stores and looking at cuff links while sneaking glances at which rings make their honey babies gasp and coo.…

The only way to break this spell, is to get a…
