I want to know if I’m crazy. I was considering having my solitaire ering sized down because it felt loose and was always spinning. I don’t really mind the spinning, but I just don’t want it to slip off. I have big knuckles and skinny fingers, however, I still think it could go down a size and still get over the knuckle. I just got my wedding band (same size) and for some reason when I wear them together the solitaire feels tighter. I don’t think it’s just the fact that it sits up higher on the finger than before. It’s actually way more difficult to slide them over my knuckle together than one at a time.. which is a good thing. Am I nuts? Anyone else have this?

You are not nuts, this happened to me also. I had my ering sized up when I got closer to my wedding date because with more than one ring everything fit tighter and I was getting some finger muffin top–which I hated! Really happy now that I did it.

This happened to me and I had to have my e-ring resized bigger because of it. The guy who resized it said it’s normal. I personally think they don’t tell you on purpose so you have to pay to resize it again.

@GrannyPantiesRock: Yup. Had to size up my wedding band 1/4 size because when the rings are worn together it’s too tight …

+1. Me too. My ering is a little tight but the center diamond always shifts to the side. When I put on my wedding ring to try it on with my ering, it felt like my poor finger was going to fall off. I’m going to have to resize both rings now to be a little looser.

I’m having two bands added to my ering and I’m concerned about this. I think its because there is more surface area being squeezed when there is an added band. The finger tissues can’t just get moved slightly out of the way anymore.I get free sizing for life, but I also want them soldered together so I want them to get it right the first time. They probly won’t.

I have two wedding bands with my e-ring and the wedding bands are all sized slightly larger to make up for this.

Happens to most people I believe. I always have one of the rings sized 1/2 size bigger.

This is good to know! I was thinking about getting my e-ring sized down 1/4 size, but now I think I’ll just hold out until I get my wedding band. I wouldn’t want to size it down and then have to size it back up again!

This is normal and it is the reason why most jewelers have wide band ring sizers and narrow band ring sizers. You will measure as wearing a larger ring size the wider the band is, and two or three stacked bands create the same effect as one wide one.

@pineapplez17: I was going to do the same thing. Definitely wait until you try on with a band if it’s only a matter of a 1/4 size. My slightly too loose for comfort ering fits perfect when I wear it with the band.

Normal. When I went to a wider set with 2 bands instead of 1, they told me to go up 1/2 size and I thought they were crazy. Turns out it fits PERFECTLY.

Yes, thicker bands will have to be ordered half a size (or sometimes more) up. I found out this the hard way as my wedding band is quite wide (5.5mm) and it didn’t fit at all even though it was based on the diameter of my engagement ring (narrow band). I ended up having to send away my wedding band for an emergency re-sizing and got it back just a day or so before the wedding. Very stressful! At this point, the bands work nicely together most of the time although they do feel a little snug on warm days. I would definitely wait with re-sizing any rings until both bands are on the finger!

@GrannyPantiesRock: When I bought my new engagement ring they said I might need to go up a size when I start wearing my band; and when I tried them on together they definitely need feel tighter. I may get my engagement ring sized up to allow for it.
