@S.Elizabeth.G:  why did he say that size if he knew it was very cold?? >:(

 

when it is cold, your fingers shrink. They almost definitely will swell in the summer. When you add a band, the finger becomes somewhat tighter too. I went from a 4.75 to a 5.25 with ering and band. 

 

Imo, it like it will be too tight

Can you call and have him hold off? I would wait and get it sized when its warm out. My ring is big in the cold (spins and moves around), but even now in January, it still is tight when I wake up in the morning or even if I eat a lot of salty food and have some water retention.

If you want a temporary solution, you could always have sizing beads put in.

@S.Elizabeth.G:  

If the ring slides easily over the finger going on then it can slide back over easily falling off, so the need to wiggle is an indicator of a better fit.

Hope everything works out for you. Smile

I haa this same issue. I told FI I was 6.75 in July, tried some on alone and the jewelry lady told me no I would go 7 it seems like better fit.. fast forward to December our wedding bands came in and I ordered a 7 based on what my e ring was without trying any. When the band came in they said both were both too large. My ring always twirled but they told me i needed a 6.5… I was terrified when I thoight 6.75 would be too small, but now they both fit fine and move some. I guess truth will well this summer

If you’re anything like me your ring will never fit well! When it’s hot, it’s impossible to take my ring off its that tight (but doesn’t feel uncomfortable at all), when it’s cold, I can EASILY slide on and off and sounds like crazy. I think you should be okay.

It should slide on easily, but have some resistance coming off.  I find most jewelers, for some reason, like to size to small.  They all size me at a 5.75.  I would never be comfy with it that tight though. I wear a 6-7 depending on how wide the shank is and how many bands I plan to stack with it.  I hate the feel of tight though, and I actually like how they look when then spin to the side a little.  I would  imagine if yours is that snug now, a wedding band with it will not be comfy.

@S.Elizabeth.G:  It is not for them to allow or not.  They need to do what you request.  You will need to try it with a band the same width you want your wedder to be.  You may need to resize  this again for them to both fit comfortably.

For things that are too large for me in winter, I would either add sizing beads or stack another band.  Sizing down to a snug fit so they will not spin in winter, when your fingers at at their smallest, and when you do yet have a wedding band does not make a lot of sense to me.  I am not sure why they do that, but I have had jewelers try to do that to me too.
