(Closed) How does your ering and/or wedding band fit?

Wow, I feel like I have huge hands now.  My Engagement Ring is a 7.  Overall, I think it fits pretty well.  It’s a little loose (and spins around) when my hands are cold (like right now!) but I think sizing down would make it too small.  In the summer or when I’m warm or working out, it fits tight, so I didn’t want to go too much smaller.  I may have the jeweler look at it when I order my wedding band.

I made a point of telling my fiance my ring size randomly a couple of times and it turned out that when I did, he had already ordered my ring.  Based on what my sister told him, he ordered a 7 3/4 (not sure why she thought this was right!) so the week before he proposed he had to go in and get it resized!  Thanks, sis!

My Engagement Ring is way too loose.  I usually wear it on my thumb!!! It’s a 7, I think, and it should be a 6.5 or 6.  In the summer it fits ok though, so I’m hesitant to get it sized, but man… in the winter I shouldn’t even wear it!  I think my weight fluctuates SO MUCH which is why I am so hesitant to get it resized.  Sometimes it fits… but most of the time it doesn’t.

Mine are both size 3.5 and fit perfectly most of the time.  I know most people say their rings are looser in the winter when it’s colder, but my rings fit tigher in the winter (b/c I gain some holiday weight and the heat is cranked up) and looser in the summer b/c my office is so cold from the air conditioning!

My e-ring’s a 4.75. My promise ring was a 5, and too big, but now that it’s on my right hand it’s perfect so I’m glad I didn’t resize it. The 4.75 is a tiny bit loose right now, it spins a lot, but I think that’s just the cold. I’ve only had it a month, so I won’t know how it’ll do in the summer for a little while! My weight flucuates a lot too, and I’m on the lower end (and better stay that way till May!) now, so I’d rather have a teensy bit of extra room for when I add the few pounds back.

What does eating salt have to do with your rings ftting? I’m sure I should know this but???

My engagement ring is a little tight. I’m an 8.5 but my ring is a size 8 – not a huge different but it could fit better on my finger without it feeling so snug.

@petunka-I’m totally laughing at "Full-fingered bride".  Hilarious!

My e-ring is too big.  BUT, my fingers fluctuate so much in size that I haven’t re-sized it for fear of finger swell-age.  It’s a 6.5, and I think it should be a half size smaller.  We got the wedding band in a smaller size and it fits perfectly, so I was thinking of just wearing it as the more distal ring (closer to the knuckle) to keep the e-ring on correctly.  I don’t want them messing with my e-ring if I can help it 😉

I think mine’s just right now.  We had it taken down to a 5, and that fit perfectly for a couple weeks.  Then suddenly it seemed too big and was spinning all around.  My friends joked that it’s "top heavy" so it’s going to spin a little anyway but it was a bit much when it slipped to my knuckle when I put my hand down at my side.  Now it’s a 4.5 or 4.75, don’t remember.  Much better, and I think it will be nice and snug in summer.

My rings are both 3’s! They fit perfectly…most of the time. If it gets cold, they get a little loose, but nothing too bad.

My rings were originally 4’s because that’s the smallest size the rings came in. Also my wedding bands are eternity bands so they are pretty difficult to size smaller.

 Sooooo, I became one of those brides whose rings had balls. So now they fit perfectly during the winter time at a size 2.75 and a little snug during the humid summer months.

Mine are either 4.25 or 5.25 (I just remember the "and a quarter" part for sure).  I only wear my ering since the wedding is next month, and it’s a little loose but doesn’t fall off so I’m cool with that.

Wow look at all these tiny sized rings! I think my pinky is a 4 or so, LoL. I’m a 6.5…..i’m about 6" tall, does that make it okay now? hahaha. I can only imagine how big the stones look on such long slender fingers! Maybe I would have been better at piano…if only. I’m layering my rings: Wedding band, Engagement Ring, wedding band. The first band and the ering are 6.5. The wedding band on top needs to be about a 6.75 or i get the squishy sausage finger look…not pretty

Mine’s a size 7 and it’s just the tinniest bit loose. But I know come summer, it’ll be tighter so I’m not too worried about it. I’ve had it about a month and a half and I’m starting to forget it’s there until I look down and see how it sparkles!

Mine e-ring is a 4 and like most everyone, sometimes is loose sometimes is tight.  Though we only got engaged in November so I don’t know how it will fit in the heat.  I got my ring size taken when it was hot out though and I was told I was a 4.

I’ll probably just get a size four wedding band.

Mine is an 8 (I think?). It was too loose when he proposed in March and I was really worried (it fell off a couple times), but now it fits perfectly, so I guess it was the right size 🙂
