My rings are the same size. Half a size bigger would have been way too loose

I would say if your e-ring is really tight, it’s a good idea. Otherwise, you’ll be fine. My hands are always cold, so my e-ring is usually pretty loose. The odd time my hands are warm it’s a bit tight. The jeweler told me the same thing, and I chose to have them the same size since it’s rare my e-ring is tight. 

A friend of mine though, her rings are super tight when she wears them together. She would probably have been better off getting hers a bit bigger.

It depends too how wide the rings are, I think for wider rings sometimes people size up a bit. my ering and band are pretty thin, 1.8 mm each, so I got them in the same size.

I have my engagement ring with 2 small bands, and I wish my jeweler would have told me to go up a size, because with all of them on my finger is squished.

I have 3 bands and they’re all the same size.

Yeah mine are the same size too.  I only learned this “rule” after I had them sized (and I’d heard 1/4 size, not 1/2) but I couldn’t really tell a difference between e-ring alone vs. e-ring + wedding band…

My wedding ring is a quarter size bigger than my e-ring. It felt a little more comfortable when I tried them on together in the store before ordering.

Both my ering and wedding band are a half size larger than my ring size but I hate my rings tight and knew from previous wedding sets what I’d prefer long term – by itself my ering will spin but not awfully and together they stay perfectly (5mm band) but aren’t tight so it worked for me 🙂

@foxtrot:  I got my band 1/4 size bigger because it’s 2x thicker than my e-ring. So, e-ring is a 4.75 and wedding band is a 5. It works 🙂

My wedding band is 2mm (ering is 3mm?) and they are the same size. When I add an eternity band to the mix I will likely buy 1/2 size bigger.

@foxtrot:  I will have three wedding bands that I plan to stack. So they are a half size bigger than my e-ring.
