We are on the verge of summer here in the southern hemisphere & where I live in New Zealand it’s already starting to get hot. The temperatures are rising and so is the damn humidity.
My fingers are prone to swelling in the heat and humidity. Tonight my rings were hard to get off and they’re dented my finger.
Does anyone else have this issue? They fit fine in summer!
I’m considering getting a couple of Pandora rings to get me through the summer

It’s quite normal actually. If your ring sits perfectly during winter it may get too tight in summer. But if you feel like your fingers gets abnormally swollen, it could be excessive sodium intake or dehydration resulting in bloating etc. 🙂

betyl : definitely not dehydration as I drink over 2 litres a day. Maybe it’s also caused by too much water? Also I never add extra salt to my food so not sure about sodium.
I don’t want to get my rings resized as come winter they’ll be too big.
So annoying as even worse after exercise.

I think it is very common, unfortunately. My ring spins in the winter but when I get hot, i can barely move it. Silicone or Pandora rings are a great idea, I wear my silicone one when my ring feels too snug.

This happens to me when I’m dehydrated, and since I live in the desert that happens quite a bit! If it happens to you after exercise AND in summer, it may be that 2 liters a day still isn’t enough for your body. Try drinking even more and see if that helps (in spite of how often you’ll be peeing your brains out!).
An alternative is to get an inexpensive and temporary wedding set for times like these! I’ve got a temporary set that I wear to concerts, and it’s a size up because I get super dehydrated and chubby-fingered with all the dancing and fist pumping. Honestly, it’s FUN to get and wear temporary sets!

The same thing is happening to me right now although it’s not summer where I live (but it’s still warm). I can’t wear my rings because I murdered my finger and got a big old blister trying to get them off. I got my e ring resized a tiny bit bigger but have to wait until my finger heals completely to wear my set again.
Not sure why it happened, maybe I need to drink more water after working out but I also went off birth control recently so maybe the change in hormones is causing this temporarily.

missviolet92 : I just wear mine on a necklace if I want to have them with me. I am incapable of hiking without them getting stuck on if I don’t. Otherwise I just don’t wear them at all because it’s not worth it and I’m usually home all day in the summer. Meanwhile in the winter they spin round and round, LOL

My fingers swell and shrink a TONNE, which I had never noticed before getting engaged (never wore rings before). In fact, my first post here was me freaking out about accidentally getting my ring re-sized too small the day I picked it back up lol
Turns out my fingers were just super swollen because of a combination of heat, salty food and alcohol (it was during our city’s big party week in July).
I did size my ring small enough that I never have to worry about it slipping off when it’s cold, so when it is really hot or I’ve been drinking it is very snug and almost impossible to get off, but it’s not to the point where it is physically uncomfortable or cutting off circulation so I am happy with it. I’d rather it be a bit tough to get off sometimes than loose enough at others that it might sliip off.

In the past I would take my rings off before bed on hot summer nights due to swelling, yes

My fingers are size 5.25 in winter and size 6 in summer. So Darling Husband got me five rings. A stack of three in size 6 for summer and two additional rather snug bands for cold weather. When I wear my full stack in winter the smaller size 5.25 rings keep the size 6 rings in place. Maybe you could re-size your set and just add one ring in winter/NZ summer to keep the other rings in place.

Yep, same here. It’s a very common issue.
When I first got my e-ring in the summer, it only spun a tiny bit but was the perfect size. Now that it’s cold, I can almost slide my ring off, past my knuckle and everything, without trying. I just purchase those clear plastic ring coils as a temp solution thru the winter in hopes that will alleviate the problem.
Maybe size your set to the size you need in the summer and get a ring guard or something temporary so you can wear your ring in the winter?

missviolet92 : My rings fit perfectly in the summer but are prone to a little spinning in the colder months. They are never loose enough to be able to slip past my knuckle, though. If you don’t want to get your rings resized then stand-ins might be the best solution. I’m not sure if the amount of swelling you’re experiencing is normal though, so that’s something to look into as well (I know you mentioned staying hydrated, salt intake, etc.).

Glad to see I’m not the only one!! My engagement ring is an heirloom that got resized when we got engaged in winter. I don’t want to get it resized too much.
Hopefully my fingers will thin out as I’m on a serious body transformation 😀.
Eyed up some beautiful Pandora rings and they have a wonderful promo for Christmas
