If the ring is hurting you when you wear it & causing your finger to swell (which would mean that the ring could be compromising circulation in the finger) then its def not a good idea to wear it @ the size it’s at! Go back to the jeweler & explain the dilemma 🙂

Mayby try going up a quarter size to a 3.75 rather than a half size!

beebar :  It shouldn’t be hurting your finger. I think the jeweler is using the wrong kind of sizers to find out your finger size. Are the sizers the same or nearly the same width as your ring? Or are they comfort fit sizers? Those make a big difference in the fit of your ring. Comfort fit runs about 1/4 size larger than a regular ring so the sizer will fit great but when they actually make your ring that size, it will be too tight because it’s not comfort fit. If the ring goes on but isn’t comfortable, I recommend going up 1/4 size and they should do it because I think the mistake is on their part.

beebar :  What is your mm on the ring?  I wear a size 3, but when but when the mm goes past 5 I have to size up at least half a size.

The jeweler should be able to “tap up” your ring 1/4 of a size with a leather mallet

beebar :  it’s not too much stress on the ring. I have had mine resized a stupid amount of times and I keep being reassured it’s fine. The first change would have been the one that did much to the ring. From what I’ve been told, small changes (within a size) aren’t a big deal at all.

That being said there are definitely more knowledgeable bees on here!
