My engagement ring does not fit. The embarassing part is I have had my ring for over a year! I just don’t want to be without it–even for a day. But now I’m starting to think maybe I should get it fitted since it twists around so much. Thankfully it’s not loose enough to fall off!
I feel bad taking it in since my Fiance had to get it specially made for my smaller than average finger. Plus, I’m paranoid that getting it sized smaller (probably just a quarter or so) may weaken the integrity of the setting, and the baguettes on my band may then fall out.
So has anyone else not gotten their e-ring re-sized since the proposal even though they probably should?? I feel like I’m the only one who has a ring they didn’t get sized correctly to their finger right after they got engaged.

mines on my middle finger cause it doesn’t fit. lol. I agree, it’s hard to part with!

Could it just be because of winter? My rings twists around a lot when its colder out (doesn’t even have to be COLD, just colder), and then fits pretty snug in the summer. Or, is it the same, even when its hot out?

I would suggest taking it to a jeweler; they can determine if sizing it down will weaken the setting, and they can also determine exactly how much smaller it needs to be. Good luck!

Mine is a little loose and twists around, but if it were any smaller, it would not fit over my knuckle.
Have you tried on your wedding band with the e-ring? Sometimes wearing two rings makes them fit tighter.

It’s definitely hard to part with, but you should definitely get it fitted. You may be doing damage to it from it sliding around a bit. Even if you get a guard…that might help!

I have a spacer on mine. It should take a jeweler about 30 seconds to put it on. It doesn’t look great (but it is below my finger so only I can see it) and isn’t a permenant option, but it does the trick to keep it on my finger!

i had two little balls sautered into the inside bottom of mine that make it a bit tighter. i did this instead of having the whole ring sized for a 1/4 of a size and they can be easily removed if my fingers ever expand.

@Miss Sewing: Love it! Sometimes I wear mine on my right ring finger so it actually fits lol!
@gabrielleelise: It’s not the winter! It’s loose all year. I was actually worried that being in the cold this winter would make it fall off, but I’ve gotten pretty lucky that my fingers have stayed the same size 🙂
@Nexus: Agreed! I think that’s the smartest thing I can do–leave it to the experts.
@Jacqi: I think we have the same types of fingers. Mine are kind of “bony” so my knuckle is not the same size as the rest of my finger. Def makes the perfect fit harder. I don’t have a wedding band yet, but I’m hoping when I do, it will really secure everything.
@2PeasinaPod: True! I never even thought about the damage aspect.
@Rachael: Another good option. Thanks!

Aw I understand I did not want to part with mine either, but it is for the best imagine how awful you would feel if it came off one day and you had to search around for it. You can prevent that by having it sized I was able to get mine done in an hour, the jeweler did the sizing right there on site. We took it in and one hour later she was back on my hand in all her sparkly glory nice and snug

LIke Smilez, I just had our jeweler put two balls on the ring to keep it from turning. I didn’t want to make it any smaller b/c my fingers do swell when it’s hot out, so the balls are a great solution – and they can always be removed.

@smilez: That’s a great option! I love that it’s removable just in case our fingers naturally get a little bigger than they are now.

Mine had to be ripped away from me to get fitted. My fingers are so skinny!! It’s still a little big, but way better than before.

@BlissBound: omg! That happened to me once and I almost died! Luckily I found it a couple hours later on my dresser, but it is such a horrible feeling!
@fancygirl: I def think I might look into the balls option. Thanks!
@PrncssDva: I am going to be exactly the same 🙂 Happy you got yours fitting better.
