Laululintu:  Oh no! I’m petrified of losing mine. That’s why I’m glad it’s a tad snug. It’s not tight but it takes a little twisting to get over my knuckle.

Out on the river at the time I hadn’t been engaged long so I was so paranoid!

MrsBuesleBee:  My ring fits me the exact same way. It’s about 1/4 size too big, as I was measured in the middle of summer, and I also have large knuckles. At first, it drove me nuts, especially since I don’t usually wear rings. But I got engaged in the fall and knew my fingers would swell a bit come summer, so I didn’t get it resized. I tried those ring “bumper” things to make it fit more snug, but those were just as bothersome, if not more so. After wearing my ring for a couple of months, I stopped noticing, but I still asked Fiance to order my wedding band 1/4 size smaller. When I first put it on, it annoyed me as much as my e-ring had when I first got it, but for the opposite reason lol. I think that with time, you’ll definitely get used to it, and it’s better to err on the larger side just to be safe.

MrsBuesleBee:  I have one of these on my e-ring. If not, it’s too loose and I don’t want to resize it right now. You can adjust it on the fly at home. My jeweler put it on for me and I love it. My solitaire still flops a bit sometimes but I’m not worried about loosing my ring anymore.

My fingers fluctuate quite a bit so I finally settled on it being a bit loose, but not enough to easily slide right off my knuckles. The rotating bugged me for the first two weeks but I got used to it and am glad that I didn’t get it sized down again. On days when it feels looser, I just add a bit of scotch tape to the back so it’ll hold while I type away at work. I agree with other bees – don’t bring your ring anywhere that there’s a chance of losing it! I leave it home for every gym session.

MrsBuesleBee:  Congrats! That’s how my ring fits as well. Even when I’m freezing cold, I have to wiggle it off.

If you’re comfortable with how it fits now, I’d leave it and try it on with your wedding band. When I bought my wedding band, it made my engagement ring fit tighter because it moved up my finger a bit more.

My engagement ring is white gold, and my wedding band is platinum so I’ll be getting the e ring reset in platinum anyways and may size up slightly to make wearing both rings together more comfortable.

My ring was VERY tight when i got it sized….the jewler was confident it was right.It was annoying the first few days…now it losened up and I have plenty of room. I think it just eventually adjusts…

I’m a 5.5 but wear my rings at a 6. I know it’s probably technically too loose, but I live in Texas and the heat makes me fingers do crazy things. I think I gain an entire ring size if I’m outside in the 100+ weather. Also keep in mind that when you wear a wedding band, your rings will fit tighter. The more rings you have on the tighter the fit. I would make sure it feels comfortable with another ring on.

My e-ring is actually one size too big. It is a size 6, and the jeweler told me my finger size is a 5 ( it was the fall at the time). I wear a plastic spiral ring guard ( that I purchased on ebay) to prevent it from sliding around. The plastic ring guard seems to also provide some cushion for the back of the ring since I tend to “slam” my hand into surfaces. I’m not  used to wearing jewelry so I am not very careful. I heard from more than one jeweler ( the one that we purchased the ring from and the one that did our appraisal)  that having the ring resized too many times is very damaging for the ring especially if there are paved diamonds ( they would fall out over time due to resizing). Taking all those things together, I decided to keep it a little bit bigger, since I figured I might grow into it anyways.

MrsBuesleBee:  this sounds exactly how mine felt when I first got it. I was worried at first it was a little too loose, but when my fingers got hot it was snug. 6 weeks later and it just feels normal now, I barely notice if it feels like it’s sliding around, it’s sort of made a little groove in the skin which it sits in. Give it time and if it’s still annoying you in a months time then think about sizing.
