- Wedding: March 2005 - Westside Loft, New York
A little big? A little tight? Just right?
Sometimes (ahem once a month) I get super bloated and it’s hard to take my rings off! They’re also tighter in the summer, looser in the winter. But overall I think they fit just right.
How do you like to wear your rings?
And just for fun, what’s your ring size? (I’m a 4 1/2 – I have long piano fingers.)

I still have NO clue what my size is … my fiance totally guessed based on a "costume" ring I had in my jewelry box and it was exactly right. I’m the same as you though — tight in the summer loose in the winter.

I’m a 5 (I’m not sure if my fingers are "long," but I do play the piano!).
I am E-ring-less as of yet, but we’re discussing it, and I’m thinking of telling him to get a 5 1/2 to allow for seasonal/temperature-related size fluctuation.
But at the same time, I’m trying to lose a little weight and am afraid that once I do, the 5 1/2 will be too big.

My e-ring is a 7.5 (I suddenly feel so self-conscious around all you 4- and 5-ers! ha ha), and I think that’s the right size for me. Right now (in the winter), I feel like it’s too loose (when I’ve not eaten a bowl of popcorn the night before, I feel like it’ll come loose when I wash my hands), but I tried on a 7 wedding band the other day, and I don’t think it would allow enough for summer flux.

My e-ring is a 6 but has been re-sized a quarter size down. When my hands are wet, or in the summer, it feels like it is going to slide off, along with its size 5.5 wedding band. In the summer they generally feel "right" unless I have just eaten my weight in salt!

My e-ring is a 3.5 but my wedding band is 4 (b/c the wedding band is an eternity ring so it can be sized down but not up, so I left a wiggle room in case my fingers change in size). But my fingers don’t really change in size that much. I still have a ring from when I was fourteen yrs old that fits me perfectly!
**Just a side note. Funny story. My fiance asked a jeweler if he had to pay that much for my ring seeing how my ring size is so small, thus not requiring as much ‘metal/gold’. <chuckling>

My ring is like yours, sometimes loose, sometimes tight, but mostly just right. My ring size is a 5.
I’ve always wondering what will happen when I become pregnant, but I hope my fingers don’t swll so much that I can’t wear my rings. Anyone else wonder about that?

Me e-ring is a 3.75 (I have pretty thin and small fingers) and it is still a little loose sometimes because I was between a 3.5 and 3.75, so the jeweler said it would be best to size up. I’m happy it has growing room though, just in case my fingers get a little bigger over the years, I just don’t like that it rotates sometimes. And I’m like Sparkles, I have a heart knot ring from when I was a young teen that I still wear for sentimental reasons.

I don’t recall exactly, but I want to say I was a 5, 5.5, somewhere in that range. Usually it fits just right, but here lately on some of the colder days, it slides more easily around my finger, but not to the point of coming off on its own. I almost literally -never- take my ring off, so I don’t really know if it’s ever difficult to take off. 😛

Engagement Ring is a 4.25 and a little too big. It makes me super paranoid to wear it because it can almost slide off on its own if I’m really cold. I was going to get it resized but a jeweler told me that it would fit a little tighter when worn with my wedding band (which is the same size) also, it’s not too bad in the summer when it’s hot… so I’m holding off on resizing it for now.

I feel like I’ve got big fingers too! Engagement Ring is a 6.5 and a little too big. My wedding ring is a 6. My e-ring fits a little better on my ring finger now because it sits a little farther up my finger. Sometimes I wear my e-ring on my middle finger of my left hand, where it also fits better, and I think that looks really pretty. I get a lot of weird comments about it though so I guess not many people do that.
On a related note, my husband’s wedding ring is a 6.5 too! He has really skinny fingers for a guy. His ring fits me too!

@ Sparkles: we got my husband’s ring for less because it was a small size! So it is possible 🙂

My ring fits very well. It does spin when I’m cold, but otherwise stays right in place! My ring size is 5.75, and FI’s is a 9!

Mine are both 5.5. They do fit really differently between summer and winter, and sometimes between morning and evening! I have ring bumps on both of them, which keep them from spinning, and also make it so that they have to be lined up just right to come off, which gives me a little more secure feeling in the winter when they fit a little loose.
I never intended to get them soldered together, because I thought my job might make it difficult to wear the e-ring all the time. I have gotten in the habit of wearing my wedding ring on my left hand, and the e-ring on my right hand. The settings are both a little chunky, which I like, but that makes for a lot to wear all on one finger.
And Sparkles, my husband’s wedding ring cost more than mine, even though mine has 9 channel set diamonds and his has 5 – because of the amount of gold. His ring finger is size 11 (he’s a big guy, 6’6"). We joked that maybe he should have more diamonds, because at the price of gold it might be cheaper.

I’m like MrsBee. Most of the time they fit just right. But if I’ve been walking around a lot and my hands swell then they’re tight. Or if I’m really cold they’re loose. However, they are loose enough on a routine basis that I don’t wear them in the shower for fear of them slipping off my soapy finger and down the drain (which almost happened to my husband a couple months after the wedding- thankfully the drain was slow and he was able to catch his wedding band before it went down the drain!)
