its not very big – its a 2mm band, .7 carat with a halo. but i find it annoying. its always falling around and getting in the way. i want to just put it in a safe place and not wear it. i told my fiancee that and he said he wants me to want to wear it every day. but honestly to have a ring i want to wear every day, it’d probably have to be miniature – and on top that, i’m not a big fan of diamonds. I don’t really want to take it back and buy something else, i just don’t want to wear one at all. Anyone else feel like this? How long did it take to get used to it?

Is the ring sized properly? It shouldn’t be “falling around” all the time.
What about just wearing a wedding band after you’re married?

It sounds like your ring is too loose. Is the main annoyance that it slips and slides around? If so, I’d recommend popping over to a local jeweler to have it sized. If the sensation of having anything on your finger at all is the issue, that’s another matter.

yes, the main annoyance is that its always falling around. its pretty much constantly on its side so i’ve just been wearing it backwards.
it was already sized and when i tried it at the store, i asked them to make it smaller and they said to go home and to try this. they said larger rings just fall over and i’ll probably have to wait until i get a wedding band which will help it stay upright. but i can’t imagine putting more metal on my hand, this is annoying enough.

It’s definitely the wrong size. My engagement ring doesn’t slide around on my finger when I’m not wearing my wedding band. I would get it re-sized.
If it still bugs you a good compromise may be to buy a wedding band you find more comfortable and only wear the engagement on special occasions.

Sounds too big, and if that isn’t the issue, having it changed to a euro shank should do the trick.

Go somewhere else to get it sized. That does not sound right..
Mine falls all over too, but hats becasue it is too big. I bought a “ring noodle” from amazon and it fixed my problem by making it more snug and I can’t even feel it.

Hmm I have a somewhat similar issue with my engagement ring. Mine is definitely not too small though. It’s just kinda top heavy so it’s just prone to sliding. If I was you I would go first to the jeweller to make sure it’s not too big and if it turns out it is just top heavy like mine, do you think your husband would be open to you wearing a sparkly wedding ring and using your engagement ring only when you guys go out? This way you still get plenty of wear out of it but don’t have to deal with it constantly sliding around while you try to relax at home? I know a few women that this is what they do 🙂

Get a silicone ring and just wear the engagement ring on special occasions! Or when you get married, just wear the wedding band.

You could try re-sizing as other PP’s have suggested or could you possibly trade it in for a ring of equal value and get an eternity band? You would never have to worry about a top heavy stone spinning with an eternity band. You could even get one with colored gemstones if you don’t prefer diamonds.

I also love a silicone ring. So comfy and some fun colors. I have a friend who wears a qalo ring almost exclusively.

I agree it sounds too big. My ring has sorta similar stats (1ct solitaire on a 1.5mm band) and the only time it spins is if my fingers are super cold. It does occasionally slide side to side if I rub it against my clothes or body when I’m moving around, but I don’t notice it and just subconsciously straighten it out with my other hand when I do.

Your ring sounds like it’s too big and just needs to be resized

I’d wait until summer before getting it resizd – it might end up being to small if your fingers swell! I’d only get a plastic ring snuggie for now.
It took me a little bit to get used to my ring, and sometimes I find it really irritating for a day (not sure why!!). Overall I’m very used to it, but it’s not massive so that might play a part

pepperzo1 : If you don’t want to wear a ring then you don’t have to. Your body, your choice. It won’t make you less engaged or married if you don’t wear one.
I don’t wear rings because I find them annoying as hell.
