My ering is a 6.5.  It was a little big all winter, but i didnt want to size it down until the summer so I could account for swelling.  Currently I have a ring gaurd on it which is honestly laying flat against the bottom of my ring… I just need that little sliver of difference(so annoying) but we are going to wait until we get married to resize again that way the jewler can soter my rings together and all that at the same time.

My e-ring is a size 4 and so is my wedding band.  My e-ring is definitely loose in the winter…constantly moving from side to side, but it takes a good tug to get it past my knuckles.

Mine is an 8.5.  Weirdly, my fiance and I have the same ring size.  We are also exactly the same height, same glove size, and same shoe size lol.  I have to give my ring a bit of a wiggle to get it off, which is the way I like it.  They get a little looser and a little tighter depending on if my hands get hot or cold, of course.  For those of you who were concerned about losing/gaining weight and ring size, I gained a ton of weight my first year in grad school (hello Stress, this is my friend Ben and my other friend Jerry).  I do mean a ton of weight, not the freshman fifteen.  My ring size didn’t change at all.  So apparently our fingers at least are pretty stable to weight fluctuations!

I noticed that I replied to this thread a couple of months ago…ring is kind of loose again.  I don’t know if I should have it sized a third time.  I’ll probably wait and see how it is this summer.  The only time it fits the way I’d like it to fit is when I wake up in the morning with it on.

My e-ring is a 5.5, and we haven’t found the wedding band yet.  It is a little big where it sits, but is a really tight squeeze around my knuckle.  I’m thinking about getting ring bumps added, but I’m not sure if it would go over my knuckle at all then!  I already have trouble taking off my ring most of the time.  My hand hurt all day when we shopped for wedding bands because I took it off and on several times in the morning.

We had no idea what my ring size was, so my fiance had to guess when he got the ring. (We discussed styles etc. beforehand, but he selected and purchased the actual ring on his own.) Of course when I first put it on I thought everything about it was perfect including the size, but after almost losing it down the drain/in my bag/randomly on the street a couple of times we got it resized to a 5.5.

It’s a little tight, but not enough to get me to change it.

My wedding ring is a 4.5, I think, and the engagement ring might be a 5? Not sure. I have long piano fingers like Mrs. Bee. My husband’s ring size was wayyyyy up there… I think 12? Although since we’ve got married he’s lost about 20 pounds (no, I’m not a bad cook, I just serve him not-fried food unlike the school cafeteria he was eating in before we got married. ) and it’s starting to slip a little. I’m a tad worried about resizing because it’s got a fairly intricate braiding pattern on the outside… didn’t one of the Bees recently post about some sort of sizing thing for her ring that was little balls on the inside?

My e-ring alone was a bit big at 6.25, but once I added the same sized wedding band to it, they  are much more stable.  I still wonder if I should get them reduced but the fit fine and im terrified of having to stretch them back out if I gain weight!

When I first got my ring, it was perfectly size, just a little bit tight, and it was very tough to get off my finger. Like if I took it in to get cleaned, I needed a spray of windex to get it off.

I actually get bloated too … once a month and my ring would be super tight that it felt weird. 

NOOOOWWWW I don’t know what happened. It is perfect, not loose but it isn’t hard to take off. Isn’t that weird? I don’t think I’ve lost weight? I really don’t know what happened. 

 I asked if it had stretched, but everyone (my parents + fiance) say that platinum does not stretch. 

My finger is a 4.75 I think … we were going back and fourth on sizes, but I think that’s what we decided was perfect.

I think mine is a 6 or 6.5? Whatever the sample size is at the jewelers … that’s what I usually wear. It gets a little loose when my hands are cold, but I wanted to wait and see how it fits in the summer first before we do any resizing.

I haven’t picked up my wedding band yet! Our bands are waiting for us at the store because we haven’t deciding on engraving. I think mine’s the same size as my e-ring, though.

I believe my promise ring is 4.75.  when i went Engagement Ring shopping a couple weeks ago a 4.5 was a bit too tight and difficult to take off. And the jeweler didn’t have a sample 4.75 to try on, but I went with it anyway; the 5 was way too big.  I’ve tried my promise ring on the right hand and it is a tiny bit loose.  My left hand must be smaller, it’s so weird because it fits perfectly on my right hand.

My e-ring is a 4.75 and it feels quite big! I can’t keep it centered on my finger at all.  I first told my now-fiance that my size was 5.5 (oops – way too big, my mistake!) – after he proposed we had it re-sized to 5, then had it resized again to 4.75.  I’m waiting for the summer to see if my fingers will swell up, but right now it just feels too big.

when my Fiance got the ring it was a 5, and was a litttle too snug when my fingers swell but not too much. We ended up going to 5.25 which is just perfect, it stays on my finger fine (I have some fat knuckles to keep it back) when I get my wedding bands (I am framing my ering on both sides with bands) and they’re 5.25 as well. I am a little wary about the size on the outside band since it is closer to my knucle and my knuckles are chunky…which could be an issue since my band is an eternity and wont be able to be resized (I dont think…)

Cant wait to have it all together

The interesting thing that I have noticed is this:

I am a perfect size 7 (which is great because all the rings in the jewelers’ cases are size 7).  My Engagement Ring has fit perfectly since my engagement in 2006 – through weight loss and weight gain – no problem!

So when we had my wedding band made, naturally, we ordered a 7. My wedding band fits great!  

The problem: when I wear my Ering and Wedding band together, they are snug and make my fingers look fat because the width of the two rings are much wider than either of them alone.  Apparently when you buy "wider width" rings, jewelers will often suggest that you go up a size.  This makes sense that two rings would fit differently than one… oh well.  They still fit…

In the end, I really don’t want anyone to mess with my rings for fear that any one of my settings could come loose.
