I’m so excited! Me & my boyfriend have been together for over 4 years and we’ve been engagement ring shopping for the past year. I was starting to get discouraged & felt like we were never going to get engaged. After lots of research & ring shopping he finally ordered my setting & it came in the mail today. I did not know he did this so it was a big surprise!
My boyfriend does not want to spend alot of money so this has slowed the process a bit since erings are expensive. I inherited my grandmother’s 1ct diamond. This is going to be my center stone of a 3 stone Ring. He ordered the setting from moissanite & Co which they had custom made for us in platinum at a very reasonable price. I was a bit worried because lately I’ve been reading all these bad things about quality of settings from this company. I’m so happy with it, I love it, I hope it holds up. He still has to get the rest of the ring made but at least I know he got the process started & hopefully will be engaged by the end of the year. It’s so hard to remain patient.
I just wanted to share my excitement!
I also think my ring might be a little too big. Does anyone have any experience or advice on this? I don’t want to lose my ring! It’s a little loose. When I hang my hand straight down my my side the whole thing shifts towards my knuckle. There is still resistance at my knuckle & it doesn’t slide off but if pulled at it comes. Is it easy to bring a ring down a half or quarter size? It is currently size5.t,which is what I got sized at. How is the ring supposed to fit?

It should not be sliding down you finger. It should slide on easily, and have slight resistence coming off. It should not come off easily if your hands are in water, although it may fall to each side a bit. Not that you should wear your rings in water anyway, like the pool ocean ect. On the other side, it should not cut in or create a buldge.
I would try it on with the width of wedding band you are going to wear. The wider the stack the tighter things are.
If still too loose resixing is not too hard or you can add sizing beads. 🙂 I prefer sizing beads so that it will fit even if I gain 20lbs swell in summer, am pregnant etc…

@showmethebling: If it’s slipping, it’s too loose. From my experience, I’m pretty much unable to remove a ring when my hand is completely relaxed (the one wearing the ring, not the hand taking it off obviously). I find that I have to straighten my finger in order to get it off. If it is slipping just with gravity, I’m thinking you need to go down about half a size. Bearing in mind this is just from personal experience, I’m not a jeweller. Hope that helps!

i just test it by shaking my hand like a mad woman. if it comes off its too loose haha! my fingers tend to swell alot as i have arthritis so i have a little bit of a muffin top on my finger but its not cutting into me or anything..

The promise ring that I wear does not even budge when I shake my hand or do anything. My ring has actually left a nice little indent in my finger. So even if it’s off, it’s like my ring is still there. (which my ring is never off untill it’s being redipped.) It should definitely be resized to fit you more comfortably!

My ring slides around like crazy, but my knuckle keeps me from getting it any smaller. Stupid knuckle. That said I know my ring should be at least a quarter or half size smaller, if there was no knuckle issue.

If a ring in leaving an indent or a muffin I think it is too tight. If you were ever in an accident, the have have to have a little room to cut it off safely.

@showmethebling: Mine slips like yours and it’s definitely too big. When FI first proposed, I figured it was no big deal, as it wasn’t going to fall off or anything. But after wearing it for two weeks, it’s really annoying. It spins around and I constantly have to adjust it. I haven’t had a chance to bring it in to get re-sized yet, but am hoping to next week. I don’t know how much smaller it needs to be, but I’ll let you know when I actually get it done.

@lizardloo: The joys of skinny fingers and fat knuckles, right!?
I struggled a lot with ring sizing. I had my ring sized 3 times (it killed me to send it away so much) but it finally fits right. I have to PUSH it over my knuckle, and really work to get it off. It spins, but it is top heavy and I know it will always do that. If it was any smaller it wouldn’t go over my knuckle. I tie two little knots on the underside with clear jewelry/beading string which sort of keeps it from spinning too badly, but now that it is cooler there’s not a lot I can do.
