I think I lost weight after the wedding – stress of moving and stuff, and my rings are super loose. How can you tell if you need to get them resized? Also – I have a half eternity and a solitaire. Am I even able to get the half eternity band resized?

I’d go talk to a jeweler and see what they say – they can also give you a quote.
If you think your ring is going to slip off, then that’s a problem. When you’re hot, are they still loose? If you’re hot and they still fall off then that’s a big problem because when it’s winter or you’re in air conditioning, you could lose them quite easily. Ring spinning is also a telltale sign the ring is too loose.
You can resize down to a quarter of a size, so it isn’t a huge difference, but makes a big impact.
Half eternity band should able able to be resized – I have one for my right hand and I had it sized when I bought it.

This is the rule I was always told: When a ring fits properly it should slide on easily, but will resist just a bit when coming off, even taking 2-3 seconds to get back over the knuckle.
And yes your wedding band can be resized.

My e-ring is too big due to weight loss, and it slips when I run because I get dehydrated. I opted not to have it resized though, because it has micropave stones…unless its falling off of me, I’m not risking them coming out.

how hard should it be to get off? i remember when i tried on wedding bands, my knuckles would turn red and raw from getting the e-ring on and off. now, i still have to wiggle wiggle wiggle, but it’s a different feeling.

I’d only worry about it if your rings slide up and down on your fingers. Because you lost weight from stress, I wouldn’t resize just yet. I’m guessing that’s a temporary weight loss? If they’re just a little loose, you can get sizing beads which will help keep them on, but won’t require you to resize. If your rings fly off easily, though, then yes, I’d resize. The half eternity may be a problem if you have to downsize by more than 2 or 3 sizes.
Your rings shouldn’t be so hard to get off they turn your knuckle red. If your original size was a size your jeweler told you you should get, jewelers are notorious for telling people to get their rings sized tightly. Quite a few bees have sized their rings higher than what their jewelers told them, and the rings fit perfectly. A ring should resist slightly, but not hurt you or fly off.

@abirdword: yeah, my jeweler told me to get a 4.75 because I have big knuckles. But it turns out the other jeweler screwed up and resized it to a 4.5.
I’m not even sure how I lost weight in the knuckles – I’m not even sure I lost weight but I know it’s still really hot and my rings are fitting differently (spinning more and such). So it’s of the proper tightness if I have to wiggle it over my knuckle right?

@carbear02: If you have to wriggle it over you knuckle, and doing that’s not uncomfortable, then yes, that sounds right.

mine are too big for my finger but I have big knuckles. if they were smaller I don’t think they would ever come off!

I just got my sized and apparently if it snags slightly on your nuckle then it’s good. According to them if it just glides off then it is more likely to fall off. Now that i heard its like duh but I always thought the perfect size would just slide of your finger, guess not lol

you know what’s weird is I actually weighed myself and gained 2 lbs. How are my rings so loose? (esp compared to last summer?)
Did anyone hear that their fingers grow fatter with age btw?
