So I tried googling this a bit, but I’m a little stuck and confused. I always thought I was a size 6 in rings, until I got my e-ring. Fiance says he got me a 6, but it was huge on my finger. We got it resized, but in my excitement over being newly engaged, didn’t ask for my size.
We plan on going to the jeweler soon to start checking out wedding bands so I can check my size then, but I was just wondering, what does a size 6 finger translate into ring sizes for e-rings/wedding bands? Or am I just crazy?

It should be the same size…..

I wear A 6 typically but sized it down to 5.75. I think they tend to run pretty close to true size. I could have sized mine down a full half size, but wanted to accommodate for the humid weather we have.

What fingers do you usually wear your size 6 rings on? I find that all my other fingers (pinkies excluded) are larger sized than my ring finger. My ring finger is a 5.75 and all the others are like 6.5+
ETA: The width of the shank contributes to size variations. A thin band will fit looser.

Interesting! I normally wear them on my right hand, or middle fingers.
I don’t think there’s any way that my e-ring is a 6, because when he fitted me for my size, the jeweler had a little loop of bands in different sizes, I guess, and he put the smallest one on me, which fit perfectly.
I’m even more confused now! Haha

I know that my right ring finger is a full size bigger than my left ring finger. That might be part of the problem.

Thank you! Guess the mystery will be solved when I go to the jeweler’s, haha

My right-hand ring finger (I’m right handed) is about a size larger than my left-hand ring finger. And my middle and index fingers are larger than my ring fingers, too.
So it could be that the rings you used for figuring out your ERing size were ones you wore on different fingers, so they might have been too big for your LH ring finger.

the wider the band, the bigger the size needs to be. I wore my 2mm engagement ring comfortably by itself, but when I added a 2mm wedding band, the two together felt too tight and needed to be sized up.
look at the way your finger tapers in and out like an hourglass where the ring sits. a wider band is going to push up into the fatter part of the finger, if that makes any sense.
