How do your rings fit in the warmth?  I had my rings sized down so they won’t be too lose in the winter but sometimes in the summer, my finger gets so swollen that I can’t even wear my rings.

TheGridMonster:  first of all, congrats! I must have totally missed your “I’m engaged” post (if you had one). 

I don’t have a lot of knowledge about them but have you considered those little beads you can get put inside your ring? That might successfully make it a bit tighter without giving your finger a muffin top.

So I’m a size 4.5 in regular temperatures, though I get a little finger muffintop if it gets hot or after a workout. In the cold now, my finger shrinks a lot. I have flung my ring across the room while changing. My fiance ended up getting a size 4.25 plain white gold wedding band for me (also knife edge to match my ring), and that keeps the ring from sliding/flying off. Also, having two rings makes it harder to have one slip off. 

A plain gold band is inexpensive and I think it makes more sense than resizing because my finger will be back to ‘normal’ in a few months.

I’m in the EXACT same boat and don’t know what to do. Just got engaged Friday… was told 4.5 is the perfect size after trying some on so that’s what he got. The ring is way too easy to take off but a friend told me if I size down it wont fit in the summer.


Might get a ring snuggie.

I have sizing beads on my ring and I think they are incredibly annoying esp when my fingers are a little swollen. I am waiting to lose a little bit more weight and I am getting the ring sized down and the beads taken off… it is an heirloom band from my MIL.

I actually had my e ring slip off once in a restaurant and lucked out to notice and find it the floor before we left! After that I had it resized half a size smaller than my actual size. I’d rather have a muffin top finger than lose the ring!

TheGridMonster:  ok well I’m hanging out for it! Have been waiting to hear your story ever since we found out you accidentally saw the plan (sorry for reminding you). And I want to see this ring of yours!

TheGridMonster:  congrats woman! I got a adjuster from the jeweler for a ring that was too big for me, it might work for you until you can use your band to keep it in place. It’s sort of annoying, but better than losing your ring.

TheGridMonster:  I love the color of your diamond, it’s so gorgeous! Just get a rubber ring snuggie for now so you don’t lose that beauty!

TheGridMonster:  oh my Lord it’s stunning! 

No wonder you haven’t had a chance to post about it, I’d be too busy staring at it all day!
