Im a size 8 and I go with an 8.25 so my finger doesn’t get muffin top.  Id rather it be slightly loose than too tight.

reminddivine:  I’m actually a US size 6.5, but I size my ring to a size 6.75. It’s not that big of a difference, but I didn’t want my ring to fit snug and when I add a wedding band it’ll be tighter. 

It also depends on how thick the band of your engagement ring will be. If it’s small, around 2mm, I would go with an 8. If it’s thicker 3mm+, I would go with the 8.25. 

Good news is, you can always fix the sizing later if it’s too big/small! Do you have a ring picked out yet?

reminddivine:  Sounds beautiful! 🙂 I would think so. Most jewelers offer free sizing if you buy a ring from them. Is that part of their policy in case you’d like it bigger in the future?

reminddivine:  Well since it’s a small difference, go with your gut. Wear the ring you measured on your ring finger and see how it feels when your hands are cold/warm. If it gets tight when your hands are warm, size up to the 8.25 because once you add a band, you’ll need the ring space.

I’m in a constant state of cold, so a 6.75 works well. It won’t slide off my finger, unlike my size 7 promise ring. I was a size 7 until I lost some weight and dropped down to size 6.5, so I feel like 6.75 is a good compromise. 

What do you feel like would be best for you?

reminddivine:  I think you’ll be just fine with an 8! I can’t wait to see pictures of your ring once you get it, I bet it’s going to be lovely! 🙂

I have a size eight, and I got the fit based on what the jeweller suggested. I tried on the 8, 8.25 and 8.50, and throughout all three I would have been comfortable with all of them, but the jeweller said that the size eight looked better.

The jeweler measured me a 7. I thought it felt too tight so I went to a 7.25, which is perfect for me.

reminddivine:  No, I didn’t. I can go measure my finger if you wish?
