ohhsnap:  Just a quick comment on ring ‘muffin top’. I used to always freak if my rings were too snug because I already have chubby fingers and didn’t want that accentuated with a ‘muffin top’ finger. It would slip off my finger easily in cold weather, too. Then after I lost a bit of weight I was out at a restaurant and happened to notice my ering was not of my finger!!!! I was extremely lucky to find it under my chair. Since then I’ve had it resized and don’t give a fig about my slight ‘muffin top’.

ohhsnap:  i might be wrong here, but if you get your band in a 6.5, won’t you e-ring hold it in place? 

unless you’re thinking about if/when you wear the band solo… 

however, you can always get the sizing beads put in to make the band a little smaller if need be. you won’t be able to make it larger though. that being said, i would do the 6.5 and if in the winter, it gets too big, add the sizing beads.

I have a Berricle eternity in the same size as my e-ring and it sticks out alot, so I can’t really close my fingers together comfortably. Not a fan of that and I feel like going up a half size would make that kind of thing even worse. It’s probably just a combination of my fingers and the design of the eternity, but just something to keep in mind.

I was also told that you can’t resize eternity bands (idk, does something to the integrity of the indvidual stones’ settings?) so because of that I went a half size up for my eternity band so hopefully it will fit for life.  Since I wear my eternity band closest to my hand, the extra size is not a problem because then I have my wedding band and then my eRing.  It took me a few days to get used to the feel of it because of the height of it between my fingers but now I don’t even feel it (except when weight lifting – that hurts).  I would consider it not snug enough to wear on my left hand alone but it would be on my right hand (I am right handed and for whatever reason my right hand fingers are a little bit larger).  I hope that helps, best wishes!

ohhsnap:  Mine are the same size. I don’t have any problems, but I prefer my rings to be looser anyways. Also as a side note, BN will do quarter sizes, you just have to ask. My w-ring from them was made in a 5.75, no extra charge. Maybe that will help you?

They always say to make the eternity ring bigger because as you age you finger size will likely change and they cannot be easily sized. What I am going to do with mine in get it a touch bigger and get a gold inlay put in that way when my fingers do go bigger they can just take out that extra gold.

Had the same thought process for my band but I opted for the half size bigger – I hate hate the feeling of tight rings especially at the base of my finger. I can fix a loose ring but can’t make my fingers smaller (also pregnancy may affect fonfer size aka even more snug of a ring). My deciding point was when I tried to spread my fingers and my ring was pinching my base when swollen. Bigger is better lol

ohhsnap:  My low eternity band is a quarter size bigger than my e-ring. There are no issues with it sticking out. I didn’t wear my e-ring maybe 4 or 5 days in the summer because my fingers were swollen from the heat but I have no issue with getting the wedding band on.
It’s too bad that BN doesn’t do quarter sizes – come on BN! Maybe you could have tiny little balls placed inside by a local jeweller? That way it won’t interfere too much in the summer and in the winter you don’t have to worry about it slipping right off.

Just ask yourself would you rather have a tight or too lose ring? That should help decide – which of the “worst case” scenario do you prefer?
