I got my engagement ring sized to a 5.25 when my FI bought it. She sized me at that, and the little model she used was snug and didn’t easily slide over my knuckle.
Come to find that it’s summer now, and I feel like sometimes my engagement ring might fall off as a 5.25. Should my ring be a little harder to get off my knuckle? It just feels like there’s no resistance at all, even though my fingers are in their “swelling season”.
Did anyone get the suggested size from their jeweler, and then find that it was still too big?

futuremrschristensen: Ya, I’ve had mine resized three times now. DH just got it sized to what he thought was my size, and he would have been right if it was on the other hand. Then we got it resized bc it was a bit too big (winter) and would easily fall off (actually did at a river camping trip but luckily it was still light out & I found it), but I didn’t want to go too small since I knew it was winter & my fingers would be smallest then. Got it resized down a quarter size finally in the spring once I could see how much summer swelling made a difference. It fits really well now all the time, but is a bit tighter in the summer & looser in the winter, however still pretty solid on my finger either way!
I would ask about quarter sizes/in between sizes- it’s amazing how big of a difference such a small adjustment can make!

Ive already had mine resized since my fingers fluctuate in size. Take a trip in to be re measured. Also im learning thst certain foods cause me to swell so it could be thst your fingers were more swollen than usual when you initially were measured.

Once you add a wedding band, the ring will feel tighter. So be careful if you get it sized again, that it won’t be too tight once you add a wedding band.

MrsCallalily: Exactly. I got my engagment ring sized down a little bit but now with both rings there are a few weeks in summer that I can barely wear my rings because they start cutting off circulation in my finger!
