Mine had to be made just a half size bigger.  I was without it for about a week and it was torture!!!!

It took me about a year to get mine fitted.  It always does seem to be a little looser in the cold and a little tighter in the heat though so I would make sure it isn’t that.  Plus you should check with a jeweler to make sure that it can be done safely without damaging the integrity of the band.

I’m lucky enough that the jeweler we used was FSIL’s Father-In-Law, so he easily fitted my ring down to a 4.5. I have to say, it still slides around and probably should go down slightly in size, but I realllllly don’t want to part with it. Plus, when it’s really hot outside my fingers tend to swell, and then it fits snugly.

Mine doesn’t fit either… I wear a sizer on it for now until I take it in to get it fitted. I’m concerned that my fingers will swell during summer so I don’t particularly want to do anything about it just now.

Mine was about 3 or more sizes too big (he didn’t have time to get it sized before we left on vacation where he proposed) and I did NOT want to give it up to get sized. I initially wore another ring that was smaller infront of my e ring so that it wouldn’t fall off. However one day I was doing laundry and it fell off in the pile without me noticing and trust me, losing it was the biggest wake up call I had and I immediately took it in to get sized when I found it again. I think I was without it for about a day and now it fits perfectly and I’m so glad that I don’t have to worry about it anymore.

i think im stuck in between sizes… i think a five would be too small, but my ring is a 5.5 and it’s a lil loose…wearable, but still not UBERTIGHT

oh my gosh, i have been engaged over a year and we still haven’t gotten it resized. Its way to big so i…..i………………..tie string around it. Embarassed its so embarrassing. I love my ring but rarely show it off because of the ball of white string on the bottom.

Fiance bought it at “home” and after he proposed in P-Burgh, we just thought we’d wait to get it sized at the jeweler where he bought when we went home sometime.

yeeeeeeaaaaaaahhhhhhh..its been over a year and some change and we need to get on it. like now.

I got mine resized a month after being engaged! And I am sooooo much happier that I did. It is soooo much more comfortable now and only spins when I am really cold or wet!

I had mine resized a week after getting engaged.  I was waaaaaay too nervous having my ring too big!  My jeweler is awesome and did it right there while I waited.  It only took about 30 mins, so I didn’t have to part with it for very long!  🙂

I already got my ring sized after we got enageged(parting with it even for a few hours stinks!!!) and it’s still too big!  I am personally going to wait until after summer because your finger swell in the summer time!  I don’t wanna get it sized for the 2nd time and have it be too small!

My ring was ENORMOUS when my Fiance gave it to me. (I wear a size 4.25 ring and the jeweler didn’t believe my fingers were really that small.) To make matters worse, Fiance proposed to me on an airplane (but that’s a different story) at the start of Thanksgiving vacation, so we couldn’t resize the ring until we returned home the following week. I told myself I’d put the ring away and wear it once it was the proper size, but of course I couldn’t leave it off for 15 minutes all week! I rigged all sorts of crazy tape and bandaid contraptions to keep from losing the ring. When we returned, I had it made smaller twice because it could still fall off my hand after the first resize (it’s still a tiny bit loose but will probably be perfect in warmer weather). I tried not to be a baby about it, but I hated to be without it for even a minute.

Are you sure your ring can’t fall off? It sounds like it’s still not really the right size. Can you shake it off with a vigorous hand shake? Are you sure it would compromise the ring to make it just a bit smaller? It doesn’t seem worht the risk of losing it!

My ring was way too big, as in, it flew off my hand moments after I got engaged and I dove headfirst into a nearby bush to find it! Then I got it sized and FH picked it up from the jeweler’s for me…still too big. Just dropped it off last week to get it resizedagain (this was 4 months later, after I’d been wearing a little plastic ring gguard on it). The problem is the setting is a bit odd…under the stone it is open (hard to explain) so a traditional size 4 is really a 4.25 with this setting. Plus, the lady told me I have no knuckle to keep it on. Uh…thanks???

If it’s way too big, i would get it resized right away (better to be without it for a few days than to lose it and be without it forever!!)

If it’s only a little too big, then you can always get a ring snuggie (google it, or look on ebay) it’s a clear tube-like cuff that goes on the inside of your hand (bottom of the ring) and helps to adjust the fit of your ring.

I actually had Fiance resize the ring before he proposed (but i knew it was coming since I picked it out). Depending on temperature, my finger swells so sometimes it is still a little loose, but the jeweler said that much smaller would make it difficult to resize (plus i’ve heard of women having difficulty getting their rings made bigger after being made smaller (like after pregnancy, weight gain or due to arthritis). 

The ring snuggies work well on the loose days and easily go on and off for the swollen days 🙂

i got mine resized 2 days after we got engaged, then had to bring it back again to get the dots put in since the weight of the stone causes it to spin on my finger (i have big knuckles but skinny fingers – the curse of being a pianist and violinist!!!)

its worth it to get sized,even though i was depressed teh whole time it was off my finger.

not to mention when FH had to take it back to the jeweler to get it appraised for our insurance, i was without it for a WHOLE MORNING!!! i made him come to my office to give it back to me when the appraiser was done *giggles*
