Okay bees 🙂 I’ve got a question for the more experienced than myself.
A size 5 fits my finger perfectly, however I was told that I should get a size 5.5 so that when I get my wedding band on there I won’t have to get my engagement ring stretched.
My engagement ring we picked out is 2 mm and I want two wedding bands (one on each side) because I like how it looks better. The wedding bands are about 2 mm each so altogether my ring would go from 2 mm to 6 mm.
What do you think? Should I go ahead and get a 5 or should I just deal with a 5.5 knowing that it will fit better later on?When you get a wedding band soldered(spelling??) together with your engagement ring does it really make it that much tighter?
Please let me know your thoughts! I just hate the idea of having my ring sized to a 5 then stretching it out again. It just sounds like it would be hard on the metal. Maybe I’m wrong though.??

I don’t know anything about this, but I’m sure a picture of your bling would help us answer your inquiry…..(I’m addicted…what can I say…)

@ForeverAndEverAfter: ha I know what you mean I LOOOVE looking at pictures of other peoples rings. We haven’t bought it yet because we are waiting to decide what size to order and waiting till after Christmas. But here is a picture from the website. I can’t WAIT to see what it looks like on my finger. I have seriously been obsessed with looking at it ha

Half a size is a BIG difference. I didnt have my rings soldered, but I have 2mm bands also and my ring fits the same as it did with my wedding band as it did without. The ring moving up on my finger 2mm because of the wedding band didnt do anything. I’d keep them all a 5 if thats what fits.

Generally, the more rings you add to your finger, the tighter your rings will feel. You definitely don’t want your e-ring so loose that it could accidentally slip off of your finger. However, if the 5.5 will not do that, I would encourage you to go with the 5.5. The jeweler suggested that I purchase a 6, but, since the platinum shank of my e-ring is so thick, and because my fingers often swell depending on where I am (i.e. at the beach) or based on the time of day (early morning), I did not want to have my ring ever get stuck on my finger or have a situation where I could not put it on. So, I decided to go with a 6.5, even though that was larger than what the jeweler recommended. Yes, it is always turning a bit (not spinning all the way around); however, it is comfortable most of the time and only too snug some of the time. I now wear my wedding band, e-ring, and my new anniverary band, and I am very glad that my e-ring is not smaller. If rings are too snug, you end up with what some people refer to as “muffin top” above your rings.

My advice is to go to a jeweler who has a set of 6mm ring sizers. Thicker bands fit MUCH differently than the thin rings on a key chain that many places use. Because you want to 2mm wedding bands to go with your 2mm e-ring, that would be about 6mm of finger coverage anyway.
Also, a good jeweler will never stretch your ring. They will add or subtract a small amount of metal to get it to the size you need. 🙂
