    @roxxx_m:  I was told it should take about 1 second to put the ring on and three seconds to take it off. So it should be snug enough not to slip off or twirl on your finger. Yes thicker settings may require a small bump size ring size, that was the case with me at least. I’d go with a 4.25 if I was you.

    My hands are both a little different, but I wear half a size bigger.

    Yes, it’s a little loose when my hands are cold, or I put lotion on, but in the summer when it’s warm, my hands swell up a bit, and even THEN sometimes my ring is a little too tight.

    I, personally, would rather them be a little loose and then perfect when it’s warm, than them fit perfectly normally and too tight and therefore unberable when it’s hot.

    Neither.  I’d go with the four if it fits your left hand — you don’t need it to fit on your right hand (unless you plan on wearing it on your right hand on a regular basis, of course).  Mine doesn’t fit on my right hand at all because my fingers are different enough sizes. 

    I like mine to be a bit snug so that the stone stays on the top of my hand.  It gets hot where I live, but I’ve never had a problem with it fitting or being too tight.  It would drive me nuts if it slipped off easy when my hands were wet (my hands are wet many times every day, not just during a particular season) or spun around any more than it does.

    If your ring turns easily, then that’s not so bad. If when you face your hand downward and the ring goes all the way to your knuckle with just gravity alone, then thats bad. The difference between half sizes are SOOOOOO minimal, that you can barely notice them. I’m between a 6.5 and a 7. My right hand is slightly bigger than my left as well (and I’m cross dominant – I use my right for certain things and left for others – mostly righty though). Keep in mind that it’s currently winter too. The colder it is, the smaller your ring size. The warmer it gets, and you’ll notice that your ring will be a tad more snug since your hands will swell a tiny bit. When I walk into a house where someone cranks up the heat to like 80 – I notice my ring won’t turn, it’s not TOO tight or anything, but it seems just right. But when I walk outside and stand in the cold 20 degree weather for a couple of minutes, my ring instantly becomes looser, it can turn easily, and it will move forward and backwards without a problem, HOWEVER, it never goes past my knuckle with just gravity. So my point is, you want your ring to fit snuggly without worrying that during warmer weather, it won’t be too uncomfortable and tight. Although a 4 fits you now (during colder months) maybe during the summer it’ll be a little on the tigher side. I’d say go with a 4.5. Sorry for my long lesson in ring sizes lol!

    I also have this problem! My right (dominant) hand is about a full ring size bigger than my left. I think this is the case for most people (usually dominant is bigger but not always).

    My e-ring is a 6.5 but needs to be a 6-6.25ish, but since I plan on wearing my wedding band closer to the bottom of my finger, I am leaving it at a 6.5 and getting my wedding band sized smaller. The thicker the band or the more bands you wear, the bigger the size needs to be. Thin/average width fits more true to size. 

    So depending on how you want to wear your wedding band/e-ring, one will probably need to be a tad bigger than the other. 

    And yes, your fingers swell a bit in the heat, but one will still probably need to be a bit bigger than the other to fit both comfortably.
