We just got engagaed on Saturday(of course, sine I love, love, love my ring~I will post a pic here) 🙂
But~I think it’s a half size too big. When my hands are cold, it moves around a lot and if I shake my hand hard, I think it would fall off. When my hands are warm, it doesn’t move around too much but a little.
As I’m not used to wearing any rings, I guess I need a few tips/hints as to how a ring should fit to be the right size.

Did your FI get it at a lcoal jeweler? I would just go in and say you want to double check the fit. They should be able to help you.

@Cyclebride: I’m right there with you. I’ve been engaged for 8 months and still haven’t gone to size my ring, even though I probably should. My ring stays on but moves around a lot and falls off if I shake my hand too much.

My jeweler took mine down a half size for the same reason. It made me nervous!

@Cyclebride: I had the same issue, but it ended up needing to be sized a WHOLE SIZE DOWN! Go get your finger measured at a jeweler and they can tell you exactly what you should be 🙂

I got engaged almost three weeks ago and was worried about getting it re-sized. It was spinning around on my finger and just movingup and down – it got really annoying after a week or so. I brought it in yesterday, and they re-sized it from a 7 to a 6.25 – and I’m so glad! It fits SO much better now; I don’t know why I waited so long.

Bring it in to where it was bought and have them size both your ring and your finger. You’d be surprised what even a .25 size difference can make. If you feel uncomfortable with the size (like it’s going to fall off), then definitely have it resized. It will never feel like it fits perfectly due to weather fluctuations – I live in the Northeast and some days my ring feels like way too tight and other days it feels way too loose!

@Cyclebride: First of all congratualtions! Yes definately get it sized down. You should not be able to shake it off. It should have a slight catch at the knuckle when you take it off.

I think if it’s loose going into winter, you should have it sized. It will only get looser as it gets colder. If you are concerned about it getting too tight, you can have those beads put in the bottom. Hopefully that will keep it from spinning too. My ring is a little too snug, but I feel more comfortable that way. I might resize it next summer after the wedding, if it feels too tight with the wedding band.

A ring should feel secure on you and shouldn’t shift around if you shake your hand, but it also shouldn’t feel uncomfortably snug. You also may find that you prefer a larger sized ring for a thicker ring and a smaller size for a thinner one.
If you’re planning on wearing it with a wedding band, I’d try wearing it with the wedding band before sizing down – the wedding band will make your ring feel more snug. You may find that with a wedding band you’ll want to size down less than if you just had the engagement ring.

@abirdword: Totally agree with you! My engagement ring fits great, but wearing it with my wedding band is umfortable because its thicker…having them both sized up.

Ok you shaky ladies. Go get your rings checked out if you can seriously shake them off. Go now! Hate to see a lost gem.

Try adding some size beads! I have them on my ring!

I was told that it should go on smoothly but it should be a little more difficult to get off, and someone else shouldn’t be able to take your ring off your finger. If you can shake it off, it’s way too loose!

I agree…you should bring it in and get your finger sized. I had a friend who lost her ring after she washed her hands in a public restroom and while she was drying her hands with paper towel it came off. She had no idea the ring was gone until she got home….of course, she never found the ring. It was too big for her so it slipped off easily because her hands were cold and wet. Better to be safe then sorry!!
