You could get it sized a little larger to easily fit over your knuckle and then have them add sizing beads to keep it snug on the smaller part of your finger.

I do.

My knuckle size is 5.5, and that’s really tight. I think my actaul finger size might be 5 or 5.25, but I can’t get a 5 over my knuckle. So I got a 5.5 ring. I measured with a ring sizer I ordered online. When I get my real engagement ring, I’ll have the jeweler do it.

With this ring, I need to be able to take it off a lot – to do messy or rough tasks or to shower. I’ll probably need to do the same with my e-ring…so I may go with 5.5. 5.5 is slightly loose, but my ring doesn’t shift too much.

I think you can also get little balls attached to the inside of the band to help it stay in place.

gymbunny04:  we’re jewish, so i can only speak for what we did, but maybe this will work for you.

in a jewish ceremony, the ring is placed on the right pointer finger about halfway down (because that ring won’t fit that finger anyway, typically).  they do this because they say the vein from that finger run directly to the heart.

then the bride moves it herself to her left ring finger.

same with the groom.  brides puts the ring on his right pointer finger.  then he moves it himself to the ring finger.

the finger change can be done subtly or right after the rings are placed and you say your vows.

whatever works for you.
