So my fiance and I picked out my e-ring/wedding ring (it is doubling as both) together on gemvara.com. We ordered the “orange blossom wreath ring”. http://www.gemvara.com/jewelry/orange-blossom-wreath-ring/14k-yellow-gold-ring-with-diamond/3js28 I was really nervous when I ordered it because I could find absolutely no pictures of what this ring looked like in real life versus Gemvara’s online computer generated image. So I figured posting the pictures up in case anyone else was considering this ring.
Also, I am not sure whether or not I should send it in to be resized? They have a 101 day policy where you get one free ring resizing. The thing is the ring fit fine the first day I put it on and then the second day my finger was swollen and I could barely get the thing off. I used a ring sizer that they sent me and we had ordered a 5.5, but a 6 is a bit too big for my finger so I would have to only order a quarter of a size bigger, a 5.75. Should I even resize though or am I just not used to wearing the ring and thats why my finger is puffier?
They also have a 101 day return policy and my mom suggested returning it altogether because she thinks the band looks too wide for my finger. Thoughts?
Here are the photos:

I love it – it’s different and unique!
I disagree with your mom, it’s not too wide for your finger at all.
How do you feel about it?

With thick bands, you might need a full .5 size bigger than you’d normally wear!
So if you have a 5.5 now, I’d size up to the 6!

I really like it and don’t think its that wide. On the other hand I kind of have short fingers that looks a little wide because of that so I don’t want it to look bad. :/

I am surprised at how different your ring looks compared to the company image of the ring!

@Ellicott: It looks different in a good or in a bad way? o_O

@dazzlepop: The width is fine, but it definitely looks too small. I don’t know where you’re from, but warmer weather usually means puffier fingers and colder weather usually means skinnier fingers. Also, as someone said, wider width bands need an upsize.
ETA: The ring looks fine, the difference is between a computer generated image and the real thing. The actual ring is beautiful.

@jadlnc: Ok, phew I was worried about it there for a second. I actually live in Alaska so colder weather. I first put the ring on when we were outside though and the next day were were inside the warm house so maybe that explains the fit changes? I’m not sure about popping all the way up to the size 6 though, but on the other hand I don’t know if going up a quarter size would actually help all that much?

@dazzlepop: If you had trouble getting it off, even in cold weather, I would say you might need a 6. My ring is a 9.5, it is very loose in cold weather and almost annoyingly tight in very warm weather. And also if I retain a little water around that time of the month. I would rather have a 9 in cold weather, but then I wouldn’t be able to wear it in warm weather. A quarter size won’t make too much difference.
