Mine is a bit too large because I’ve lost weight since before we were engaged. Like most, I don’t really want to part with it. If you can hold out till you need to add your wedding band, I was told by my jeweler that it will get smaller when they weld the two together. My Fiance got me 2 bands (one on each side of the e-ring) so it should really help size it right.

well my ring was to big for my finger when my Fiance proposed and i couldn’t handle it, i was so freaked out it was going to fall off my finger and its top heavy so it would flip upside down all the time……. so i called the place we got it and i asked if we could get it down in one day so i could pick it up after school and they let me. If i was going to have to wait for days i wasn’t going to do it, because i couldn’t part with it.

I have two small balls on the inside of my e-ring to stop it from spinning.  Your fingers will contract when it’s cold and when you move them a lot (like typing in a cold office), and the two side balls will help it stop spinning.  But the balls won’t make it any smaller, so that you can still get it off if you need to when your fingers are swollen (like when you first wake up or when your hands are warm).

Am I the only one who takes their e-ring off? I don’t exercise, shower or sleep with it. Maybe it will change when I have my wedding bands.

@BudsBride – no I take mine off to shower and sleep.  I used to take it off (and put it in my pocket/purse) each and every time I washed my hands and put on hand lotion, but now sometimes I don’t as it’s pretty bothersome.

Mine is a bit too big too both because of my too big knuckles, like jacqi, and because of the stone weight, like spaganya.

I only learned recently that I could add those two little balls that smilez and chicagobride092010 have and we’re hoping to do that sometime this year after the wedding.  We just don’t have the time (or the money) right now and it’s only a bit annoying since it’s starting to be warmer.

I got mine sized right after we got engaged.  I thought my finger was a size 6, but when Fiance proposed, my ering was too big.  I went to the jeweler and she measured me.  My ring finger is actually 4 and 3/4.  Eeek.  And I’ve lost weight since then and my ring is loose again.  But I don’t think it needs to be sized again.

I’m shocked by all the people that haven’t had their ring sized to fit them properly!  I got mine sized right after he proposed.  It would annoy me to have a ring that doesn’t fit perfectly.  Yes, I didn’t have the ring for a week while it was getting sized, but I’ll have it for the rest of my life, so what’s the big deal about one week?

I got mine one week from today and it is a little big. We are going to try to make it back to the jewelers this weekend to see what we can do. My big fear is that is going to fall off and I can handle parting with it for a week or so if it means that I wont loose it!

My partner bought me a J (4 3/4) knowing I have small finger and I even had that resized to a to a H and 1/2 (4 1/4) my knuckle is 1/2 a size bigger. Some days i do feel it is loose but I know if I do get it resized it could be tight on other days. I could go a H. If I need to but will rething it closer to buying the wedding bands. (I’m afraid of when I go swimming as I have almost lost it in the rain a few times) My fingers are only small and I’m not sure if it will be too tight 2 jewellers have told me that because of the difference in my knuckle size and finger size that it will still spin if I get it any smaller – the hazard of having small fingers.
