Seems like your time limit has expired here, but #1 – congrats! #2 – if it’s meant to be worn with a wedding band she’ll want it a little bigger whether she knows it or not. That will push it a little higher into the fatter part of her finger. Also wider bands you’ll want bigger than super narrow bands (like – ring sizers!) becaue they don’t fit into that little crease in your finger.

@lulu_honey: It’s easier to size it down than up. Sizing it up requires you to add more material into the band.

I err on the side of having my rings a little bigger, but I am deathly afraid of getting them stuck on my finger :/ Plus when you wear the e-ring and w-band together they can be a little more snug.

@vorpalette: Depends on the piece, actually. Usually it is no problem to stretch up a ring 1/4 of a size, but if you need to size it down, they typically need to actually cut the band and then solder it back together.

Thanks all. I went with 4.5. At least now I am extremely confident it will go on @ the important moment, and the size will get taken care of us by us together in due time. We can take care of it any weekend we want, even during the holidays. The 4.25 I would have been nervous til I saw it go on, and I want ring size to be the last thing on my mind at that time!

if she got on a 4 I would NOT go a whole half size up. 4.25 is plenty.
