I rec get a size up and sizing beads. Fingers swell in the summer. It would suck to not be able to wear your ring in the summer because of the heat.

The only thing I would add is to keep in mind that a lot of people need to get their ring resized eventually or they decide not to wear it.  Ring sizes can change with age, pregnancy, etc.  You may want to keep that in the back of your mind as you decide what ring set is best for you.

@Mewcakes: I LOVE California!  Unfortunately I don’t live there either.. but I will be moving back soon!  

The pic I posted is a “horseshoe spring” or “butterfly spring”.  Sizing bars look like the sizing beads [or balls ;)] except flat.  I just wanted to clarify so you know what you’re asking for.

I really think you should consider a 3.5 or 3.75 due to the amount of detail on your ring.  It would be so much easier to remove the spring than to make the ring bigger.

Go larger and add sizing beads.  They’ll help keep it from spinning as well.

Both of my rings have beads, and I haven’t had much trouble.  

A few months ago I sent another bee some of those plastic ring guard-things, if you want, I can send one or two.

@Mewcakes: i think it varies a lot based on your diet. when i drink a lot of water or my hands are colder, it seems to be fine. but in the summer and i’m swollen, obviously my fingers are feeling swollen too. i agree with the other bees. go larger, then you can always add on a component to your ring to make it fit better. i was so afraid that my ring would fall off my finger (and there goes thousands of dollars down the drain!) so i opted for smaller.

I think my ring is too big on me so I wish I sized down a bit.  In the winter it slides all the way down to the base of my fingers and flips around all the time.  I ordered a 4.5 but I think I should have gone .25 down.  Maybe when the wedding ring is on, it will be a little more snug.  Since everyone seems to say go larger, I would listen to them.  You could always size down like I might do

Can you try your ring or a similar model on WITH a wedding band so you can try it out?  Not clear if you already know where it would come from.  It is unlikley they would have the actual model, but maybe something similar would give you a better idea.

Go a little bigger. I could cram my ring on in 5.25, but I was paranoid about finger swelling when I have a baby some day. I was ordering an eternity ring which can’t be resized, so I went with 5.5. It doesn’t spin but doesn’t squeeze either. In the summer it feels comfy but not tight. So if you can do a quarter size larger, do it. Also, I have noticed that it feels snugger when I wear my two rings together- but not oncomfortable.

Oh, and the jewelry store was all, “it needs to be tigher than that,” when I was trying on a 5.5 and they were wrong. It would have been uncomfortable. So trust yourself.
