The Love ring is pretty wide IMO, so I doubt you’d need to go up.

No, then you’ll just have a loose ring

pinkorblue:  actually yes, the thicker the band (or more rings) does require a bigger ring size. Can’t say for sure with out the milimeter details, but you should def try on a ring with the same mms to be certain you wouldn’t prefer a 5.

if its the same mm as your Love ring, that’ll work.

Yes you would go up a size. I have a RHR that has a wider band than my e-ring and I had to go up .5 a size. Both jewelers said that when the band is wide, you should size up.

pinkorblue:  Whoa, 2-2.5x the width of the Love ring??! Damn girl, that’ll definitely be giving you massive finger converage and you’ll definitely need to go somewhat bigger in size.

pinkorblue:  go try on something similar fo sho. You’ll likely be 1 size or at least a half bigger.

Maybe a tiiinnnny bit. I have a ring that is 4mm wide and a size 4.75. It is tough to get it over my knuckle. However, my mom has a ring that is size 4.75 but only 2mm wide. I can get that ring on no problem.

I wear a 6 in a 2mm band and on same fingrr an 8 in a 6.5mm band.  Hope this helps.

Unless it’s “comfort fit,” which shouldn’t be sized up. It actually fits like a thin banD because of the inner shape.

I would go up for sure.  At the jewelry store, they should have 2 kinds of sizing rings, thin ones and thick ones.  I suggest going to try on one of the larger sizers.  If I wear a 2mm band, I wear a 6, when I wear 6mm or more on my finger I go up to a 7 or even 7.5.

My wedding to be band is an R, which is huge. But my thinner engagement band is O and a half. I think that’s around a 7-8 US. Most jewellers will have a bunch of size rings in thin and thick.
