allibeebee:  Darling Husband bought my ring in a size bigger than what I actually neeed, as that was what was available in the store at the time, and he wanted to propose faurly shortly after buying the ring. I just wore the sizer thing that the store put on the ring until I had seen a bunch of family/friends so they could see it. So, I did this for a couple months before I had it resized.

I had it resized again when it was soldered, which now fits perfectly. I can’t rememebr what size it was when he bought it, maybe a 7? But, It was resized to a 6, and now it’s a 5.75.

Before you decide to change the size I would suggest keeping it a size 5.5. I am a size 4 for a 2 mm band. My e-ring is a size 3.5 because the band is a 1 mm knife edge. I like snug fitting rings so I don’t have to worry about them accidentally coming off. But if I were to stack the e-ring with a size 4, 2 mm wedding band its too tight. I can feel the circulation change in my hand, and makes my finger look a bit chubby. If you plan to stack rings, even 3 in the future you need them slightly bigger.

Personally I chose to wear one ring my e-ring is my wedding ring (its 3 stones). After having a baby I got a plain band when my daughter became a toddler so we can have fun and get messy. That’s when I noticed I couldn’t stack them.

All the best.

And if you really want to resize, find a jewellery store with an in-house jeweller who can do it on site. You can pick it up the next day. That’s what I did.
