Any other bees with this issue?
I’ve recently become engaged (yesterday actually) and I have two rings, an e-ring and then a wedding set.
The e-ring is a size 6, he left it as is and said we can resize it. It’s a little loose.
The wedding set is also a 6 but appears much smaller and at times it doesn’t even fit on my finger, and others it fits just fine, and sometimes it’s a bit loose (goes over the knuckle and won’t fall off though)
My fingers keep changing, not on a daily basis but on an hourly/minute basis sometimes
Even when we bought the wedding set I couldn’t try it on as it didn’t fit (we choose the centre stone so it wasn’t an issue) but then after two hours I tried it on and it actually fit.
I do have arthritis, but this is nuts, I don’t want to resize my e-ring now because I’m worried it won’t fit some days.
Anyone have this problem?

Mine changes constantly! Sometimes I can’t even get them to move and other times they are falling off! Plus, my wedding band and e-ring are the same size, but the band fits looser?!

The band fits more snug, so now I had to wear it over my e-ring on my right hand just to keep my e-ring from falling off.
As I type it keeps spinning though, and the stone is falling forward towards my palm, what a pain!

CONGRATS!!!!!!!!! I’m so happy for you 🙂
And I wouldn’t size your ring unless your getting bad muffin finger or it hurts to get it on and off.
I sized mine to a 6.75 and I wish I had stuck with the 6.5 because at times its realllllly loose.
I think even that small amount makes a big difference.

Absolutely! It changes throughout the day, and now that I’ve lost a few pounds since I got my engagement ring it moves around WAY more.

Ohhh mine changes over the course of the day. I’m a 5 in the morning and a 5.25-5.5 at night. ugh!

Wow, seems to be a common problem then Ladies.
What do you do to prevent the spinning? Any tricks?

Mine spins constantly and at first it drove me crazy, but I guess I’m used to it now because the only time I notice that it’s spinning is on here when other people are talking about it and when someone asks why the stone is underneath.

lol @ stone underneath.
I just put the solitair now (the one that matches the wedding band) and I’m going to wear it as a stand in.
It seems a tad smaller than my halo e-ring and the style seems to spin less.
Here is my proposal thread, you can see both rings (except the band, but it just looks like the solitair):
My knuckle is big, so it’s a case of making sure the size of the ring fits past my knuckle .. the part below is a gone with some skin (it’s almost a size 5 or less)
The knuckle also grows and shrinks, it’s all so unpredictable.

My mom has this problem but luckily I seem to have escaped it. What she does is wear a keeper-ring, which is a very thin, small gold band that is smaller in size than her wedding set that she wears on the outside of her wedding rings to keep them from falling off. If she’s having a small finger day, she wears it; if not, she doesn’t. If you’re finding that you’re changing hour to hour, you could keep it in your pocket or on a chain around your neck until you need it.

My ring size is temperature-sensitive. When my hands are cold my fingers shrink and my rings flop around, and when it’s warm they’re quite snug.
They’re sized just big enough to go over my knuckle one at a time. Any larger and they’ll go flying off my finger.

There are also little ‘sizing beads’ that can be put into the inside of the ring. They’re supposed to go over knuckles fine, but they provide a little extra traction on ‘skinny finger’ days. I’ve never had to use them, but I’ve seen them mentioned by other bees on here.

Jenniferk6 ,linguo42, these are great ideas!!
I think with warmer weather my hand will probably swell a bit more.
Thank you for the great advice all.

Yup, over the course of a day, I’m anywhere from a 4-4.5. It’s so annoying!

yes, constantly. It makes me crazy!
