If your ring is just spinning from normal wear it’s too big.  You should get it resized.  My ring spun when I first got it and I didnt think it was too big.  I got the same thing put on my ring as you did and the ring still didn’t fit right, but I didn’t really want to get it resized because i liked the way it looked and thought if i got it resized it would be too small.  I ended up having to get it resized a half size and it’s perfect now.


Also when they put the beads in they should have made them so that the ring was the size you needed it.  It sounds like your jewler might not have done that.  Have your finger remeasured as well.

I have the same problem.  My knuckles are too big for my actual finger.  I have a size 4 ring and it spins like mad.  Any smaller and it’d never come over my knuckle.  I was thinking about beads, but now I’m not so sure.

@ladyamalthea:  I have a similar but opposite problem.  My Fiance knew my ring size was 5.5, but ordered a 6.5, who knows what he was thinking…it was huge!  I walked a mile (I’m in downtown Chicago) to my Jeweler in the summer and when I got there my finger had swollen a bit b/c of the humidity and she said I shouldn’t size it b/c it fits fine, so they sized it to a size 6, still huge, then the next time I go in they mesure my finger and say “how about adding sizing beads” so we do that and it’s still too big!  I just gave up!!  It spins like crazy and fits over my knuckle w/out a problem, it should be a little tight over the knuckle, right??  Now that winter is coming it’s really too big, I think I’m going to have it taken down to a 5.75 and keep the beads on and hope that fixes the problem, but maybe just sizing to a 5.5 is the best solution…This is so annoying πŸ™

I would just see if they could shave down the sizing beads a little…that might do it.

spinning is such a pain, isn’t it?  I had my wedding band sized down to 4.25, and that thing still spun!  Come to find that it should have been ordered in my size vs being sized down from the get go.  It was top heavy, and sizing down was not helping.  I hope you find a solution, very pretty ring, by the way. πŸ™‚

I’m a size 5 but got my rings a 5.5 because I prefer loose over tight if my fingers swell slightly – it spins on my finger BUT it fits perfectly with my 5mm band, also a 5.5 so the band really did help and I wear that on the inside.

@ladyamalthea:  Have it sized down a quarter size.

I wear a 3.25 – so I know all about resizing and beads. I’ve lost a lot of weight and have gone from a 4.5 to a 3.25 – it can be really miserable. If you’re completely spinning free – you need a resize – not sizing beads.

I’m sorry sweetie! I know that it’ll work out and I will love you even if you have to wait to get your ring back for a week or so!!!! 

And here’s one thing for sure, we will definitely take adorable ring pics together at your wedding and mine! And people pics as well… We’ll have a “you and me, and our men” photo, when you are married.. And eventually a “the couples all are married!” photo.
