    You can get quarter-sizes, too. Could you try a 6.25?

    @Gemstone:  What she said. Go for a 6.25

    I was also going to suggest 6.25.  

    Also, for the pregnancy part, your fingers might swell A LOT.  Mine went up almost 2 sizes towards the end, so wearing rings may not be an option; I got a stand in cheapie so I didn’t get the unwed mother stares in the grocery store.

    I have the EXACT same problem as you. My ring is a size 6 but hurts to take on/off most times and makes my knuckle red and sore. I didn’t get the size changed because I didn’t want it to spin around on my finger (which it already does when I’m cold). I just don’t take mine off that much. If I have to, I do it only when my fingers aren’t really swollen from the heat.

    If it makes a difference, I got my wedding ring in a size 6.5 since I know that is the ring I will wear every day for my life (e-ring might not always be practical for everyday wear when I have kids) and I want it to always fit over my knuckle. Plus, it’s a full eternity ring and it doesn’t matter if it spins.

    I have the exact same problem with my ring. I went with the bigger size and has them put sizing balls on the bottom inside of the ring. Can I ask why this is not an option for you? It helps with the spinning problem and also allows for enough room so you don’t have to cram it on or yank it off. My jeweler did them for free and you can’t even see them when the ring is on.

    Why don’t you want sizing beads? They’re ideal for people in your situation.

    Ditto to the quarter size up like other bees. 6.25 will be fine. I did a quater size up too as my finger tend to swell a lot, a lot in the summer, but I need something in between for the weather so 1/4 is the way too go.

    have them size it down 1/4th of a size instead of a 1/2 size…that should fix your problem!

    Because your setting is on the wide side, you may want to leave it at the 6.5, especially if you’re planning on wearing a wedding band with it.

    Also, I know a lot of women whose fingers did not go back to their ring size after they had kids, myself included.  My e-ring was a size 5 when we got engaged and married.  Now I am a size 6, even though I’ve lost the “baby weight”.  Your joints loosen up and sometimes do not go back to your pre-pregnancy size.  So just a thought if you’re planning on becoming pregnant right away.  You don’t want to resize your ring too many times b/c the stones can become loose.

    Wait and see how it fits with your wedding band– mine spins now but fits perfectly with my band!

    Sizing beads are a girl with big knuckles’ best friend:

    (not my ring, but so you can get the basic idea).  They can be slightly smaller or slightly larger depending on how much spinnage you have, and can be removed quickly without any damage to your ring. No one can see them when the ring is on your finger, and they only cost like $30 (at least mine did for platinum).  I’m having them put in my wedding band as well.

    Agreed with the 1/4 size and options for anti spinning. I dont take off my ring unless Im rock climbing but thats it.

    @Gemstone:  Ditto!  My actual ring size is 4.5 but I asked for 4.75 because our jeweler does not want to go size 5.

    As a PP already mentioned, sizing balls are great.

    ETA: My jeweler added platinum sizing balls at no charge
