You have to find a good medium. In the winter when your hands are cold they are going to shrink, when you hands are hot they swell. You have to find a size in between.

My ring gets tight when I am hot and when I am cold it spins but it can never just fall off.

I wish I could say more to help! Good luck!

I know what you mean!  I’ve had mine resized 3 times and it still seems big.  Not huge, though when it’s really cold it will fall off (not ideal, I know).  I’m going to wait through the summer to see whether I can comfortably have it resized one more time, another half size down.  To be fair, we started with the sample size ring which was clearly not my size, and we’ve only had it resized twice since the original resizing…still, I sometimes feel like Goldilocks, trying all the different sizes until one fits!

You need to make it so that it fits comfortably during the summer (when your fingers are a bit larger) and you will have to just live with it being a little looser in the winter when it is colder and your finger is smaller.  My rings are a wee bit tight during the summer so sometimes I have to struggle to get them over my knuckle but in the winter, I have no problems at all.

I agree with what the others have said.  There are days in the summer where my ring feels really tight and I can hardly get it on and off (once I had to run my hand under cold water to get it off).  In the winter though it always feels so big that I’m afraid it’s going to fall off.  I’ve taken to wearing gloves outside because I’m worried it will fall off when I’m walking down the street or something.  So if your hands are crazy like mine, you may just have to deal with it being just a little off most of the time…

If you’re loosing a lot of weight or fluctuating with weight that might be the issue. I’ve had to have my ring resized twice, once when I first got it and then once again in the winter and I dropped quite a few ring sizes in winter so I’m anticipating my ring being a bit tight this summer but I’d rather have that than lose it. Like previous posters said, you need to find a happy medium.

Do you have knuckle issues? Well, perhaps not since you said it slipped off when you were changing… yikes!! Has your jeweler suggested sizing beads?

They are not as scary as they look. My Maid/Matron of Honor has them and says they actually make her ring MORE comfortable.

You might want to be careful with resizing because it can make your band very weak and to be honest, youre not going to get it perfect. Mine could be a little tighter but like the other bees are saying, your size will fluctuate and you have to have some wiggle room. Get ring guards, those will help. Also, my jeweler said when I get my wedding band, itll help hold it in place better. Hang in there!

Haha! I’m laughing because I’m having size problems too. I always thought it was simple to size a ring. Seems its not so easy, right? Who knew!

I had mine made smaller twice and I think I have to go back again because it still spins and slides on my finger to a distracting degree. The thing is, it’s down to a size 4 already and I’m worried it’ll be too tiny when the weather gets warmer and my ridiculously puny fingers swell from the heat.

Is your band platinum? This is the first platinum ring I’ve worn and I’m wondering if it’s perhaps tougher than other metals to size properly.

Sizing beads are GREAT for spinning issues, as well. It sounds like that’s all you need, @Jadeblue.

I would recommend getting a ring adjuster. It will make your ring fit, without having to constantly resize it…

Here is a sample picture… Chech out the bottom of the ring, the adjuster clamps to the ring, and it moves up and down to size up or down (not to exceed the actual ring iteself)…
