ladyvk :  I have a second wedding band/RHR that’s very similar to my wedding band (shown here on my middle finger) that I wear when I swell up πŸ™‚ I wore it during my pregnancy.

I bought this cheap silver set in a larger size in case my fingers swell a lot.  I’ve never worn rings so regularly before.  My ering is actually a bit loose,  but my wedding band fits perfect or is slightly loose all the time.

mo86co :  Thank you! That’s a great idea and is way less unsightly than those little plastic things on Amazon. πŸ™‚

I normally just deal with the ring being tighter as long as I can still get it off with a little wiggling. If it gets to the point where I have to ice my finger and grease it up to get the ring to come off, then I have a yellow gold emerald ring that I’ve been wearing for fat finger days. I didn’t buy it for this purpose though. My grandmother gave it to me as she doesn’t wear it, it just happens to be a couple sizes larger than my normal set, so it works out well.

Beautiful rings ladies!! 😍

I just want to share with you my experience so far. I’m too losing weight and like some of you I don’t want to resize until I was done, my jeweler gave me this plastic things:

It was cold here until a week ago and I had to use 7 turns, this week I change it and I’m using just 3

I really like them because right now we are living in a somewhat cold place (spring-summer is nice) but where I’m from is really hot  and humid (by the sea) so when I go visit family I have to take them all off. When I finally resize it I have to make sure it fits in both cities πŸ˜‘ but I really don’t mind the plastic thing, I like it because I feel it is protecting the ring from scratches and I really don’t feel it.

(Sorry if you don’t understand some things English is not my first language)

Keep posting pictures I love to see your rings and solutions to this problem!

Yes, my fingers have a huge swing between winter and summer.  My hands feel like sausages already and it’s not even June yet.  My wedding band is really thin so I just wear that alone and the tightness isn’t much of a bother.  Sometimes I just wear nothing.

I have  a few sets but in general what I do is have my rings made or sized up 1/3 of a size is is my sweet spot not too much spinning not loose enough to fling off or anything!! It took multiple tries to find my perfect size and it is in my comfort fit rings 1/2 size bugger because of how they are made I needed them a tad bigger !

he sent me home with a plastic finger sizer and I checked in the morning afternoon and night I know this sounds extreme but when you end up with rings needing to be reshanked because of resizing like I had and mine was also due to major weight loss one of mine was a size 11.5 at my largest went to a 6.5 not all at once but it was wrecked after so many sizings anyways enough rambling πŸ˜‰

My  rings are sized for summer swell fingers. I just add 1 or 2 narrow bands as winter rolls around.I keep a cheap silver band in my wallet in case I’m stuck in a cold room.
