I wear 3 rings stacked and they are all the same size (4.25). But my fingers don’t swell much and I have a lot of space palm to first knuckle. In winter everything fits looser so I don’t size up b/c spinning annoys me. 🙂

How were your brushed finished rings sized? All the same or different? How did that stack feel on w/ the ering?

I had to size up an entire size when i stack more than 4mm on my finger… but it also may be because of how my fingers are shaped.

My ering is 4.75. I got my other rings in a 5 and they all feel good on my finger together. I did notice that when I included my eternity band in my set (making it about 8mm total coverage) that I felt a noticeable difference when making a fist but I’ve decided to give up punching people for at least a full month after the wedding so . . .

I have a 3 ring stack and wear them a .5 size too big (normally an 8, rings are 8.5). My ERing and wedding band are soldered together… both are quite thin, maybe 2.5-3mm together. My second band is 2mm.

My fingers swell quite a bit and I work in an environment where the temperture can swing drastically (between -20F to 100F), so I thought the 1/2 size was a good comrpromise. In the cold my rings slide a bit, but never feel like they can slip over my knuckle. And in the heat my fingers rarely swell to a point where the rings are uncomfortable.

I’m sizing up between .5 and .75 depending upon the ring — I hate ring muffin top and with eternity bands would rather have to use sizing beads than not be able to wear my rings for any reason down the road. 

I was nervous about sizing up, played with different sizes in a jewelry store and even ended up purchasing a set of sizing rings through Amazon to play with to make sure wearing different sizes wouldn’t be too weird. Jennifer Garner’s looser stack below:

RayKay :  How do you deal with spinning on half eternities? Until my last half eternity smashed itself into a nice oval to fit my finger I found myself constantly correcting it…

I wear a 4.25 so my e-ring and w-band are both that size. I find a 4.5 for a third ring works fine. But my rings are all pretty narrow. In the hot summer weather or overnight my fingers swell and it can be uncomfortable so I don’t stack and don’t wear my rings to bed either. My right hand ring finger is a 4.5 but I buy size 5 for it due to swelling and stacking 3 rings on it. But as pp said, in cold winter fingers shrink and rings will spin. Sizing beads sound like a great option to help with things rather than the dreaded muffin top finger.

I am Canadian too and ordered rings from US (Berricle, Debblazer/Etsy) and found that 1/2 and 1/4 sizes are not always accurate especially from Etsy sellers. I had a supposed 4.5 fit tighter than a supposed 4. Very frustrating.
