My boyfriend and I ordered my ring over the weekend. From what I understand, they offer 90 days to make changes to it..
After ordering a couple things have crossed my mind. We order mine with diamonds all the way around the band. I did not realize I wouldn’t be able to resize in the future. I am 21 and doubt my fingers will always be a size 5.5!
I also go back on forth on wondering if I would just prefer a completely plain gold band. I feel like there is more variety in what I could do with a wedding band.
Do you think these are changes they would make to the ring?
Here is a quick picture I snapped. My setting will be in yellow gold instead of this platinum.

You could always ask if you really wanted to change it. I dont think finger size changes too much though unless you gain/loss a LOT of weight. My weights varied about 15 lbs, but finger size hasn’t changed since high school and I’m almost 34. I’ve been wearing the same rings for 10+ years (well, at least before they were all stolen last summer).

You can go 20-30lbs either way before needing a different ring size!
But you could always go with a plain band and a glittery wedding band! Though you’d have the same sizing dilemma, then.

Maybe you could get a 3/4 band, where the stones cover 3/4 of the band, but the very bottom 1/4 is plain metal. This gives you the same look, but with an easier way to re-size it if you ever need to in the future.

It’s super beautiful! I agree with maybe doing the 3/4 eternity to take in to account future resizing.

Ring sizes dont really drastically change much, but if youre concerned you can always contact the company and ask if its possible to change the band. There’s no harm in asking!

@cls9q: I would DEFINITELY get a half-eternity. I can’t imagine having pave at the bottom of the band. Good luck with your ring!

@cls9q: It’s a beautiful, ring, but the lack of sizing in the future would be a problem for me. When I was 18 my ring finger was a 7.5, when I got married at 21it was an 8. Then after a couple kids 8.5, now after all is said and done (I’m 36) it’s a 9.5.

I was a 5.5 for over 30 years. I just recently had to have them resized due to arthritis in my knuckle. (Yeah, that sounds old!!) Now I am a 6.5. You may be able to have it made into 3/4 diamonds around the ering but it depends on the store and if they do any customization. If not, and you love it, live with it for oh, say 30 years like me, and see how you feel. I then decided I needed a whole new set and the hubs was happy to oblige. 🙂

@cls9q: Personally, I wouldn’t like having a band that isn’t resizable. While some people don’t fluctuate weight– in my late teens and early twenties I was 98 pounds and a size 0 (no, I didn’t have an eating disorder, just in case you’re wondering)– but slowly, as I got older- even though I was active, my body more comfortable slipped into the 115 pounds range. I was about 115 when I got pregnant, and my body has completely change since-my hips have physically widened LOL
All I’m trying to say is- there are TONS of reasons why your weight might fluctuate, and whether people realize it or not, your fingers are first place for that to happen. I just think people don’t realize it. In the summer, my ring is as snug as I would ever like it to be. but right, it’s cold- this is as lose as I’d ever want it to be. It just goes to show how quickly your fingers can change shape. My ring was a perfet fit when I got it in July. It was a 6.25. I thought it was perfect- at least. But the first night in September that the weather cooled, it almost slipped off my finger- so I went down to a 6. And it’s been really hot again since then- so 6 it will stay!
