Try going to another jeweler and see if they have another solution.  One thing I’ve noticed is that if I retain water or it gets too hot (like summer) my fingers swell a little and look fat around my rings.  I try to keep my sodium intake low, and drink lots of water.  That might help.

If it’s gold, there’s got to be a way to resize it. Throw in another f’ing diamond! That would make me mad.

I wish you luck but I have heard that eternity bands just can’t be resized. I hope that’s not the case but I’ve heard it alot. Due to the setting it would totally distort the prongs for all the other diamonds. It’s something you must be sure on before purchasing the right size. I on the other hand, have to wear a ring that spins sometimes because if my fingers swell when my eczema acts up then I wouldn’t be able to take the ring off! I’m not sure which situation is worse. Would you mind providing us a picture of your rings on your finger? I know you may not be comfortable regardless of what we say, but sometimes people are just harder on themselves and don’t even know it.

I think you are being waaaay too hard on yourself. Your rings are beautiful and so are you. 

My only suggestion is that this may be happening because you are wearing so many rings on one finger. Could you try splitting them up onto different fingers?

I think shaving the band will allow you to go up a quarter size, which is really all you can do with an eternity band.  I don’t think you can stretch an eternity band because of what Curlysue says:  it distorts the prongs/channel set/pave/etc. and you have a higher risk of having diamonds chronically fall out.

Your photo didn’t post, so I’m guessing it looks like sausage finger?  Or is it because you’re wearing three bands that all that metal makes it look fat?

If you went up a half size, would the ring fall off?  Because if it’s not tight, just "fat" looking, then you’ll be at risk of losing your ring.  That would be worse, right?

Sorry I couldn’t be of more help. =(

Chantellamus, honestly, I think you just might have too much widith on your single finger. Is your wedding band a solid piece that the e-ring slips into or is the wedding band two seperate pieces? If they are too pieces, like one other girl said, I would see about wearing them on a different finger. Some people just don’t have enough space between their two knuckles, I know I don’t.

Chatellamus … babe … wear those rings and wear them with pride!! Who cares what your fingers look like? I have to say … no one will even notice, let alone care about your fingers with that hott bling on them.

They are hott and you should flaunt them as such! Some day, hopefully you’ll get use to the stares of lust for your rings! 🙂

I was in your same position with my eternity band. I brought it to a different jeweler than the one I bought it from. My ring is a very thin white gold with diamonds all around. They were able to add a diamond (for around $200) and now my ring fits perfectly. Plus, you cannot tell the difference.

So try going to some good local jewelers.
