Would a sizing bar help? Jewelers have bars or beads that can be a temporary solution for a slightly large ring.  Ask a jeweler for an opinion.

The jeweler would know best if it can be sized easily or not… ask them!! I lost almost 20 lbs and i think my ring size only went down about 1/2 size.

You said the ring is only slightly big. Why not just wear it anyway? At least for the day of the wedding (I also couldn’t bare the thought of my wedding band not being the one that we actually got married with) and then if you don’t feel comfortable wearing it day to day, wear it on your right hand until you return back to your normal weight. Good luck with that by the way 🙂

I’m 5’3″ and gained about 50lbs and my ring size went from 5.75 to 6.25. Just a half size. I don’t think a 7-10lb loss will change your ring size too much.

Yeah, if anything it would only be a half size.  I recommend getting sizing beads put in it for now so you can wear it until you gain the weight back.

This varies tremendously from person to person. I wouldn’t think 7-10 lb would make a huge difference one way or the other, but some people gain weight in their extremities while others don’t. I went through a time with medical issues when I gained a tremendous amount of weight, and my ring size didn’t budge. I since lost the weight, and my ring size still remains the same. However, I know others who have had much smaller weight gains or losses affect their ring size significantly. If you aren’t sure how much or how little your weight affects your ring size, it might be safer to wait until you are at a stable weight to have a forever ring made.
