Hey bees! So this may be a weird question, but anyone out there have knuckles that are a little larger than your ring finger? I do, and my ring size is 5.25 but I do have to wiggle/work a bit to get it on even if my hands are cold (which is what FI and jeweler said is appropriate so it doesn’t go flying off!), and then it fits the base of my finger a teeny bit loose when my fingers are cold, and perfectly when my hands are warm. So… I’m kind of nervous about the ceremony when he places the ring on my finger! Haha I don’t want him to be up there trying to shove it on my finger, so I’m wondering if anyone had this issue and what they did!? Should I lotion my finger really well beforehand or what?! Have him put it up to my knuckle and I try to wiggle it on after?! Hahaha any suggestions/tips/what you did would be appreciated! We’re having a videographer too so I don’t wanna totally embarrass myself!

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.

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.
