Some places do carry 5’s though so you could always get a cheap sizer
for the bottom of it till you can get it sized (I have one on mine).
I’m at the point that if I don’t find something I’ll use my grandmother’s wedding band that I inherited for the wedding day and then get what I like after the wedding. I’d rather have something I liked than just what I can get in time.
Do you have anything you can use as a “stand-in” ring just in case?

I wouldn’t worry about it. My friend bought his wife’s band (sz 4.5) a WEEK before the wedding. Doesn’t take more than a day or two to resize unless you have something crazy complicated.

I know on iweddingband.com they have 1/4 sizes (including 4.75) in white gold bands, but I’m not sure if that’s what you’re looking for. That’s where we got ours, and I think one of the Bees did too, but I can’t remember which one.
That will still take about 1 or 2 weeks though, which would be the same as ordering from a store I suppose.

eweddingbands.com also has 1/4 sizes. We bought ours there. They came in about 4 days, and a super nice quality. We spent about half of what we would have spent at a traditional jewelry store.

My fingers a 4 so i feel you on never being able to wear a ring without it being sized first. I got my e-ring taken down 2 sizes in 12 hours. Maybe they were havinga slow day or something but when I asked when I could have it back he said what are you doing tonight?
Don’t worry, we don’t have our rings yet either.

You aren’t screwed at all. It takes a jeweler about 15 minutes total to resize a ring. You can just ask him to do a rush order, depending how busy he is, it shouldn’t take more than a week.

My Fiance and I just ordered our bands last week. They didn’t have exactly what we wanted in stock in our sizes so we ordered them. We were told it would take a month and we were told that most likely it will come in before then. I would be surprised if they were unable to put rushes on them.

I don’t have mine yet either! Mine’s probably going to be from Blue Nile and they do overnight shipping for free…AND you could probably order in your size. They also have a 30 day no questions refund period so if you don’t like it, you can return and even have time to get another one.

Some of the places that we looked at said that they needed about a month to deliver a ring… but if you needed it by some particular date, then they could work with you (maybe for a slightly higher fee?). Either way, I think you should be fine. Lots of jewlers should be able to deliver wedding bands to you in your timeframe.
