I’m worried about the same thing – my ring being too small when we add the other two pieces. 

Unfourtunately I’ve heard the same thing, totally bad luck to wear your ring around ahead of time.  I think that over time, your finger will adjust, I know my finger is totally deformed now where I wear my engagement ring, but at least I don’t have the :chunky" finger around it anymore.

I’m not superstitious, but I will not be wearing my ring till after the wedding. Sure I’ll try it on, but I want to save that for when we are married (and the rest of my life!)

Ehh…I don’t believe in those superstitions either. Darling Husband even saw a picture of my wedding dress (accidentally) before the wedding – no big deal.

I know exactly how you feel!  Darling Husband and I had my wedding band designed and completed by  August of 2007.  We didn’t get married until November 2008!  It killed me to have this beautiful band that I wanted SO badly to pair with my Engagement Ring – and couldn’t! I used to wear it around the house, folding laundry, reading, emailing, etc.  Darling Husband busted me a couple of times and finally, we (read: he) decided that it would be best to put the ring in our safety deposit box until the wedding.  It made it a lot easier because I wanted to wear it all the time 🙂

Regarding the dreaded ring fat…I find that my fingers swell when I sleep and are most swollen when I wake up.  By noon, they are better – not sure why…  I’ve thought about going up a 1/2 size in my rings but I feel they might be too loose then…

My Fiance wants me to wear the band. "I bought them both at the same time! So I want you to wear them now! Otherwise I wouldn’t have spent the money on both right NOW!"

Okay, so he’s a little clueless about traditions…I wear the band on my right hand occasionally. I’m not superstitious at all, so it’s just another pretty piece of jewelry.

If yours are making your finger swell, though, you should have them resized. I don’t think you should try to "get used to" swelling. I don’t know, that’s just me though.

LOL. As you know, my Fiance lives in Georgia so I *could* wear them all i want! I feel like a fraud after some time though, haha. I put mine on around the house to admire them tho!. I did have to wear them to make sure they were comfortable for long periods of time (an hour or so) and make sure they didn’t need to be stretched. FOr me, i have 3 bands, so they told me the top one might have to be stretched a fraction bigger so I didn’t get muffin finger. But it’s actually quite comfy. I just keep staring because it’s excessively blingy….. Just get it stretched 1/4 of a size. It should fix it. 

Since you have 3 rings, including your e-ring, you may have to get the top one resized a smidge. 

I do have this ugly raised callus at the base of my finger where my Engagement Ring sits though. This is common with less delicate jewelry.

omg i just got mine this weekend and all i can think about is going home and "trying it on" you know… just to make sure. I won’t wear my two rings together- I plan to spread out the bling so I figure i should get used to it right?

 I AM NOT THE ONLY ONE! THANK GOD! I have had my wedding band since I had my e-ring bc Fiance got them at the same time and yes I put it on alot, when he is not around. I cant wait to wear it all the time, it really enhances my e-ring and I love it, its so pretty! My e-ring is a 5 1/2 but I actually got my band a size larger since I fig its sitting behind my e-ring not a big deal and since its a thinner band it thens to fit a bit more snug. Plus I plan to be preggers within the next year and I still want to be able to wear my ring when I am all puffed out. I say if your bands are not comfortable or you dont like they way they look get them sized, if you can, they way you want.

So I take it your diamonds go all the way around or do they stop anywhere? If they go all the way around, you will lose some of the diamonds I presume and it might take a little bit longer. Since your only going up a smidge it should not be too much of an issue I presume.

 Your finger really will eventually deform and fit the ring, I promise. Mine did! I couldn’t wear mine together before the wedding though, my wedding band is a guard so it didn’t look too pretty. I just bought a plain gold band and wore it until our wedding day since my rings were soutered (sp is way wrong) and I felt like I shouldn’t wear it before the big day.

This post made me itch with desire to wear mine last night. So i wore them at home last night….and almost forgot to take them off! I almost wore them to the gym!! EEK

So, Chantellamus, are you going to show us these bad boys with your e-ring? I know you have 2 sparkly bands like me and a gorgeous Tacori, i’m just dying to see it all together! I’m the only one I know with two diamond bands. I feel so flashy, lol. Or, as Fergie says, "glamorous"

Your jeweler is retarded, they should have had you get them bigger. No offense, but IMO, um, DUH! You just got your rings from them, and if any other ring was too tight, they’d fix it right?! If they’re uncomfortable/too tight, you’ll get muffin finger and then during the summer when they swell you’ll want to take them off and not wear them. Not the point of having them in the first place They should be able to reorder you a new one (and sell the current one in store) or expand it a smidgen. Im sure they’re saying they "cant" because it’s a big pain. Just tell them that the jeweler said you wouldn’t need to get it bigger so you *trusted* her opinion and the top one is too tight on your finger and you CAN’T wear it. They might have to pop a tiny diamond out of the bottom and stretch the metal in that one particular spot. I’m not sure how that works. But i doubt they’re just gonna say Sorry, Charlie.

LoL, you know those old men who obviously weigh a LOT more than they did when they got married and their rings are like, 2 whole sizes too small and they have major finger muffins? Well, we don’t want that now, do we? I hate that! It’s like squeezing into a pair of jeans you wore in high school…20 years ago
