@Jazmynju:  I don’t think your finger looks muffinesque at all! and your set is gorgeous! I would be worried about sizing up and my rings feel too loose!

Love your wedding band! If you are not comfortable, definitely size up a little. It’s normal to feel your rings are tighter when you wear more than one.

The wider the bands, the bigger they need to be.. as all of the “muffin” goes to the sides.

My e-ring fits perfect but when I wear my band with it, I get HUGE muffin top since the bands are so wide.

I am regularly a 5.25. When I got my rings sized that way, they were uncomfortably tight. I got them both resized to 5.75. Much better. My set is also pretty wide.

Mine are exactly the same size and fit perfectly.

@Jazmynju:  it doesn’t look like a muffin top to me

I had to resize my e ring once I added the band but I got them soldered and my e-ring sits in the middle of my wrap wedding band.

I would definitely size those up, especially if your fingers swell in the heat. I wore a 5.75 in my ering alone, and now my wedding set is a 6.5 and it feels great, even tight sometimes when I first wake up.

@Jazmynju:  Mine certainly fit tighter when worn together, and I think it mostly has to do with the wedding band pushing the e ring up higher to the “fatter” part of my finger.  I haven’t sized them up….but I’m not married yet and haven’t worn them together long enough to tell if I need to!  

BTW, LOVE your wedding band and e-ring combo.  I have a similar e-ring, but with a plain shank, and I tried a few twisted bands and love the look.  I wound up with just a plain pave band, but still can’t get enough of twisted or crossed wedding rings.

Mine are exactly the same as you, op. Went up to a 5 for my band from my 4.75 ering!

My set is 8mm wide. I like my rings to fit loose. I get panicky if they feel tight at all.  My finger measures a 7 and I had my set sized to a 8 1/4 to keep from feeling claustrophobic. I would go with comfort in your case.

beautiful set….. I have  3 stackables my wedding band and e ring which cover about the same amount of finger space as your entire set. My jeweler told me the more space you take up you should go up on your ring sizes…. My stackables fit fine by themselves, but when you added the wedding band and e ring they got really tight so I took them up a 1/2 size and all is well.

My Dad and I bought a half-eternity ring for my mother’s birthday a few days before Christmas to wear next to her wedding band (she doesn’t have an engagement ring) and went with one (German) size bigger than her wedding band just in case. Thank goodness we did! It fits perfectly but if we went with the same size as her wedding band my Mum says both rings together would be too tight. But they’re both rather thin rings. Your criss-cross wedding band looks like it takes up quite a bit of space on your finger so perhaps that’s why your set feels tight even though your wedding band is a quarter size bigger. 

How about you only have your engagement ring sized up? That way your set will still be comfortable but your wedding ring won’t fall off if you ever want to wear it alone.

yes, you need to order up when you add bands.  It looks snug, imo.   If I wear one 2mm band, I need a 6.  But as I add 2mm in width I add half a size.  So I generally order 7s because I tend to have 6mm of coverage on my finger.
