When you say that most of the time it fits, does it fit snug? If so, then I would say increase it to maybe a 5.75 or 6. I’m technically a size 5.5 but my e-ring is a 6 and it is fairly loose all of the time and the only time it fits snug is in the heat so I would see how much your fingers actually swell before making it too big 🙂

If you get a larger size but add sizing beads, your fingers could swell comfortably between seasons but the ring won’t fall off

I would suggest going to a jeweler with the sizer rings. Find out if a 5.75 or 6 feels too big on you when you’re in there with their nice AC. I’d rather have it be too snug sometimes than too big most the time!

I think it’s better to have a ring that’s a little snug in the heat than one that could potentially fall off when you’re cooler. My ring is a little tight now in the summer also, but if I wet my hand and twist them off they still come off just fine- just a little more work. I wouldn’t want to go any bigger, since they fit perfectly in the winter, and I live in Wisconsin 😛

@marinewifetobe:  Then I would stick with what you’ve got. Mine gets snug in the summer too, so I just take it off if it’s feeling really tight. 

Good luck!

I’d have a jeweler raise the size 1/4 and ask for gold size beads to be put inside so that when your finger isn’t swollen, the ring will have that extra metal to keep it from twisting, I did that to my first ring and it was awesome.  comfortable, didn’t feel it, goes over the nuckle but the metal just fit better once it was pushed to the inside of the finger.

All that happens is a jeweler takes the same sodder metal used in sizing, melts two or more down till it heats up and crunches into a little ball, positions the metal to the ring and cools the ring off to polish the beads smooth.

No, you won’t feel them at all.  It was so comfortable I loved it.  Because its on the inside and they don’t have to shave metal away when they do this, I felt better about the value of it.  Yes, any jeweler who understands sizing should know what you mean.  If not print the photo out and they’ll recognize what it is maybe they call it something else.

 

When my fingers would swell, I’d twist the ring sideways and pull it over my nuckle whatever way it worked.  Because i’m a 4 3/4 and the ring was a 5, those little beads only serve to hold up under the skin at the bottom of your finger where the swelling doesn’t occur, your finger swells along the sides and puffs at the top.  the bottom is less sensative
