I am feeling a little down right now because I had to ship my ring back to my FI so he can return it 🙁 Our engagement is still on but the woman at the BX jewelry counter where we bought it sold us a ring that cannot be resized as much as I need it to be. The ring is a 7 and I am a 5 and because of the setting if they DID resize it, it would be an oval not a circle. I ultimately decided as much as that ring meant to me and I love it I had to give it up because I do not want to sacrifice fit or risk messing up the beautiful setting of the ring (or lose stones!). So no ring for now 🙁
Has anyone else had major sizing issues with their ring? or had to give up the ring your FI proposed with for whatever reason?

Aww I’m sorry. You might have to order a ring from somewhere other than the BX. I think they usually have the most common sizes there (around a size 7). Hope you find a new one you love!

I imagine if I had mine sized properly, I’d be in a similar situation. We figured sizing beads would be the best way to go, since I’m always wary of hand-swelling/weight gain/pregnancy/etc.
I’ve got to take mine back next week, because my center stone rattles. A local jeweler said that it looked like the prongs needed to be rebuilt to fit the stone, but the shop we got it from only has a repair person in on Saturdays… :/

@MrsSaltWaterTaffy: Yeah I was hoping they could order one in my size from the manufacturer but since they can not I am asking my parent’s jeweler to find a similar one in our price range. thanks I hope I find one too!

Awww. I’m sorry. I just shipped mine off today to be rhodium plated, and they said it could take 2 weeks. It’s hard feeling like you have a “naked” finger.

@surkim: That was smart thinking with the sizing beads, it was not going to work with me but it seems like a smart choice.
I am sorry about your stone! Was that an issue when you first got the ring? or did it just start happening?

I have a naked finger right now and it stinks! With the weather warming up, my fingers have been swelling and I could no longer wear my ring comfortably. Considering it was very hard to get over my knuckle, even during the winter, I’m guessing I’ve always been a 5.5 and the lady who originally sized my finger at a 5 didn’t know what she was doing! So my ring is currently at a local jeweler, being sized up half a size. I dropped it off on Tuesday and they said it would take about a week so I’m about halfway there!

i havent got a ring at the moment because my stones kept falling out, so i returned it to the shop who thankfully took the ring back, i have looked at and tried on another ring, but waiting to go back to the shop with my FI to order it, plus its not in the right size so would need ordering in. we didnt get to go today because he has been working nights so was in bed all day. so until i get another, i am ring-less and i feel naked.
