Engagement ring too big!

My fiance also got me a ring that is half size larger when he proposed to me in Mexico. We live in Canada, and over here resizing a ring is very expensive (from our perspective). When we called the seller, he mentioned that the warranty will cover the resizing of the ring. So, we plan to resize it when we are in Mexico next year (we are getting married there).

In the mean time, my finace bought me another nice ring which I love for about $20.  It is silver ring with a citrine stone (I love citrine, and I was planning to own one). I will be wearing it until my ring gets resized (something that I and my fiance don’t mind).

I am also going to buy two wedding rings. I usually work a lot with my hands, and I travel a lot.  I figured that I would wear the cheaper rings under labour intensive situations such sports, salsa dancing, swimming, field work acitivities, walk in bad neighbourhoods, etc. I will wear the expensive rings when I work in the office, go out for walks, shopping etc. 

This works for me. I don’t know what will work for you. But I am sure that if you read the different options that some of the bees are providing you on this board, and calmly think about your situation, you will also find a solution that will work for you. 

In the mean time be careful not to lose your ring, and I wish you good luck with what ever you decide.
