    I’d leave it as is.  Once you start wearing your wedding band, things will tighten up, and I believe it will fit perfectly during the winter months then.

    Sometimes during the summer my fingers will swell a bit. Nothing to get it resized but during these times I usually will either wear only my ering or my wedding band by itself. Another reason why I love the Fall and Winter.

    My ring spins no matter what I do (it’s been resized 3 times).  I think it is a combination of my big knuckles and skinny fingers, and just being top heavy. I take very thin, clear jewelry/beading string and tie a couple of small knots on the bottom of my ring which helps it grip my finger better.  I’m hoping a wedding band will make it sit higher up on my finger where it is fatter so it won’t spin as much.

     My ring spins most of the time.  However, there are times when my fingers are swollen, and I am SO thankful that my ring is not too tight. As much as I dislike seeing my ring spin to the side, I would dislike having too-tight rings so much more. As long as your ring isn’t so loose that it actually could fall off of your finger, I would recommend leaving it as it is.

    My ring is definitely bigger in the winter. It spins like crazy. It fit pretty well this past summer, but I guess it could still be made smaller.  It was still a little big. I don’t mind it, though. I think I would hate it if it was tight. I will definitely be getting my wedding ring sized smaller when the time comes.  I want that one to stay in place.

    My rings are too big in winter (if I shake my hand a few times they’ll fall off) and too small in summer (I can only wear one ring in the summer because the two together won’t fit). My fingers fluctuate so much it’s ridiculous, and I just suck it up. If I were in your position I would probably go down another quarter size and shoot for a happy medium between the seasons.

    @oneyearout:  We resized mine, half a size, and of course it started to feel loose in the winter. I didn’t like how it kept spinning, so I did the fishing wire sizing trick. There’s a board on this topic somewhere! Let me know if you want the link, it works like a charm for the cold months!

    Kind of.  I was a few pounds heavier when I got it, and we had it sized for my summer fingers.  It spins quite a bit in the winter, and I’ve lost a little weight, so now it spins a bit in the summer too.  It’s definitely too tight to fall off, though.

    Everyone’s bodies react this way to heat and cold. My ring is loose when I’m cold, and tight when it’s hot. Same for my husband, and every single person I know who wears jewerly!

    @oneyearout:  Not strange at all. Girllll, when I drink, I can’t get that ring off to save my life. Just how it is. 😉
