My fingers swell and shrink constantly, so I’m with you. I’d have it sized up to an 8, and then have them put sizing beads in it to keep it from spinning. There’s less risk of damage to the pave that way, and if your finges swell, it’s less bothersome with beads than with a too tight band.

I see you are in Texas, as am I. With our crazy fluctuations in weather, I wouldn’t be so quick to get my ring sized. Some days it fits snug, others just right, and some it spins like crazy. I don’t think your fingers look too chubby. Is it uncomfortable or are you just concerned with the way it looks? I think it looks great! Perhaps up your water intake to reduce swelling. If you must get it resized just go with a reputable jeweler. There looks to be enough metal at the bottom of your ring where there aren’t diamonds to be messed with. So that shouldn’t be an issue.

@CocoLoco523:  +1 Totally agree about the weather affecting it. 

Gorgeous ring! If you really feel like it’s more than the weather or the normal daily swelling of your fingers (which do not look chubby, btw), then I’d find a very reputable jeweler who has experience with pave bands. Sizing beads are also a good option, as Susanlee178 suggested.
