I would go to a jewelry store again and get resized. Three full sizes seems like a lot. Then, have your friend tell your boyfriend the new size (if it’s a different size). I think it’s possible that you may have measured incorrectly with the ring sizer.

That does seem a bit extreme. . . Worst case scenario, if he proposes with the original size. . . you can always get it resized. No worries!

@Kakimax:  Those paper sizers are crap. I had one tell me I was a size 10 when my ring is a 7.75. If you’re worried, go to the mall. The stores there will size you for free.

@Kakimax:  Is it possible that inacurate page dimensions or something affected the sizing guide that you printed from your computer? I would definitely get sized at a jewelry store or buy an actual ring sizer with plastic/metal loops (I’ve seen them for like $5 on Amazon and Etsy), and if your size is off then bring it up to your boyfriend.

Ditto what brandybell said. I requested a free ring sizer from blue nile, it came in less than 2 weeks. You can go up a size or 2 if you gain a lot of weight, but 3 sizes sounds drastic. I went from an 8 to a 9, but I that’s with a gain of almost 50 pounds. Definitely double-check.

Don’t use the printable ring sizers unless you measure them to make sure that they’re 100% accurate to size. Sometimes they print smaller which would make your ring size a lot bigger. Just go to ANY jewelry store and ask to be sized and they’ll do it for you. It’ll be accurate and take less than 5 minutes.

Just go see a jeweller and have them resize your finger for you.

Definitely get resized. Also, remember that in winter, your fingers will probably be smaller than in summer because the heat (and exercise) makes your extremeties swell more, so you want to take that into account. So getting sized with cold hands could make a ring seem too tight and uncomfortable in hot weather- just something to think about for when to get sized and how your size could have appeared to change so much.  🙂

@Kakimax:  Something similar happened to me.  I thought I remembered my ring size being 6.5 (like 5 years ago) and when I used the paper sizer it said I was a 9.5!  I was freaking out and embarrassed to tell SO my size because there’s no way my figures practically doubled in size.

I went to a jeweler who sized me and said I’m a 6.75.  I also ordered the Blue Nile sizer and I can get the 6.5 and 7 on just fine. 

Good luck!

I have the same problem with the paper sizers– they tell me my size is like 9+ but my ring is a 5.75 and loose. I don’t understand it at all! I would go with what the jewelry store said.

@VMars:  Same here! I get around 9 with paper sizers, but my ring size is a 5. Visit a store and try on a metal sizer!
